DEWALT DW715 Customer Reviews

This DEWALT DW715 15 is a great miter saw with great features. Miter and bevel were perfectly aligned out of the box. Miter alteration is rock solid. The quick detents have no twist room at all, and the detent override makes it easy to set to any angle. The push-down miter lock is easy to use. There are also good hand holds on each side of the base with rounded edges so they do not dig into your hands.

It’s so hard to find the downside of this miter saw. The lack of this saw is just that this saw is not compatible with any DEWALT Laser or LED work light. Other lack of this saw is that the dust bag just collects a little bit of the sawdust. Others than that it’s all about the great features. Blade cuts very smooth. The bevel locking knob-thing is nice and big which makes it easy to grip and turn. The adjustable fence can be adjusted with a single knob quickly, but is still very strong when tightened down. Everything about this saw is sturdy, and all the adjustments can be made with very little effort. The DEWALT DW715 is easy to adjust for angled cuts and, with the 80 tooth.
