This is my first Miter Saw so i have nothing to compare it to but i think that it is a great Miter Saw. Just to start off this saw costs 140$ at Lowe’s and i bought mine without a laser. A wise man once told me that the blade does that cutting and not the laser, and he wants to see where the actual thing that’s doing the actual cutting is going to actually cut.
Now back to the saw. it came ready to run right out of the box and all the different angles that i checked were right on. the saw has good power and great construction (not to mention the 5 year warranty). all of the major components are some sort of metal. Also one thing that i noticed was that all the set angles were cut into a sort of metal. on other saws in this price range had the stops cut into plastic. the dust collection isn’t that great and maybe only gets about 50% of the dust but as a woodworker i am not moving it around very often so i have the choice of hooking it up to a shop vac so the bag doesn’t matter much. i would buy this miter saw again if i had too or recommend it to anyone else who was looking for a 10” miter saw. if anyone wants anymore information regarding any of the saws features or components than just leave a message and i will send you back a message personally to your profile.
