Customer Reviews

The Milwaukee 6955-20 Miter saw is one of great saw. This saw is very sturdy and works very well. The sliders and the table miter swings smoothly as glass. In addition, the digital miter gauge is pretty cool. The detents are deep and precise, and the miter scale is so easy to read. The blade that comes with the saw is adequate and the saw cut smoothly and accurately. The stock blade works well enough for framing. As far as dust collection its awesome that bag fills up quickly. It is great but really limits what you can cut. The soft start and brake is nice and overall the saw is real smooth. The cuts are now hyper accurate. The Lights work great and make it easy to see where the blade is landing. Also, there are padded handles on the side that make it easier to move. All the adjustments can work smoothly and easily.

On the other hand, this saw also has some downside. For example, the right side of the fence does not slide. Another weakness, no clamp is included for the work piece. The lack of a hold down is a real disappointment. In addition, the base is very heavy and sturdy and does not move. However, these downsides actually are not really matter because this saw still can work great and accurate cuts.


Overall, the Milwaukee 6955-20 12-Inch Sliding Dual Bevel Miter saw is a great saw. This saw is the most powerful on the market. Cuts are great, repeatable and accurate. This saw seems to be tool for life which means that it can use for long-lasting. Thus, I think that this saw is recommended to use.
