The DEWALT DW716 Customer Reviews


This DEWALT DW716 compound miter saw is one of a good saw. The stock blade is good for cutting things like demo material, pretreated wet lumber etc. This saw is very powerful, smooth, stays accurate, and the laser works well. It folds and unfolds easily, and the wheels make mobility great. The stand and the LED light of this saw is amazing with the shadow of the blade so user can see accurately where the cut is going to be. It’s much more accurate than laser and adjustment-free.


The DEWALT DW716 has also some lacks features. For example, the slider of this saw is very inaccurate, but this saw is not. Dust collection is surprisingly good and the bags fill up quickly. The dust collection on this saw is basically nonexistent. The collection point is way too high above the cutting area to collect anything. Perhaps this is why the dust bag is so small, it does not collect anything. The combination of a stand and a 12 inch miter needs wheels, as it is very heavy. The throat plate was installed poorly. The miter and bevel scales needed very minor adjustment.

Generally, this DEWALT DW716 is great miter, cuts high baseboard and crown molding, double bevel cuts, and smooth adjustments. It is quick start and stop. Basically, the saw is OK, but the XPS light package is a loser. After inspecting the saw, the fence was scuffed and dirty, and the power cord was pulled into a knot and dirty as well. The lack of a work light is disappointing.


In conclusion, this saw gives great and accurate cuts. This miter saw is still going strong. Table still rotates smoothly and dependable. Therefore, based on the DEWALT DW716 reviews, I think I am going to recommend this DW716 compound miter saw to use.
