Product Details

Milwaukee 12" dual-bevel sliding compound miter saw has the power, precision, and features to let you cut precise, repeatable miter angles with accuracy to ±0.1". Fine adjustment with detent override makes it simple to dial in precise miter angles, while the powerful 15.0 amp, 3.3 HP motor assures that you have the power to do so. An integral dust channel captures as much as 75% of the dust and debris produced by cutting to help keep the work area clean.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Milwaukee tools have always been the high end product... It is my understanding that this is Milwaukee's first endeavor at a compound miter saw. Not too shabby! There is room for improvement, though. I won't expound on the fixed fence. Everyone else already has. I really like the concept of the digital miter angle readout, but, you didn't carry through on the bevel adjustment. I have to say that I found the bevel harder to adjust and tweak than my 30 year old cast iron Delta miter saw. Given the nice features on the miter table adjustments, then, why not the bevel adjustment. Loose the paddle lock. It doesn't really accomplish anything. How about replacing it with a worm gear adjustment and throw in a friction lock. Just for giggles, give it a digital angle readout for those of us that like really tight fit-ups. Oh, and that bevel gauge... You can do better than that. Give it a descent vernier gauge for accuracy. The brass thumb screw on the slide lock was broken off out of the box. A brass, metric thumb screw? Really? It now sports a stainless machine knob and brass 1/4"-20 stud. Looks good, works fine. Add some crown molding stops as accessories. After some drilling and tapping, mine now has a set of DeWalt's. didn't supply or offer them. Remember Milwaukee is the good stuff. It's a little more expensive,but, the serious craftsman, (small 'c'), understands that you get what you pay for. I hope that you will at least consider some of these additions, but, all things considered, darned, (is that better?), good saw. I'm proud to have it. August 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Miter Saw On the Market Today I own a building material store and I build custom furniture as a hobby business. We have sold several miter saws over the years, and this is the only saw that customers come back in to tell us how much they love it! I have owned several dewalt models and they simply don't compare to the Milwaukee. Positives It came out of the box 100% accurate. Adjusting the bevel with the large paddle handle is easier on this saw than any other. It slides smoother than any other saw on the market. The soft start motor makes it easier to handle and reduces fatigue. It also lets you concentrate on holding the workpiece instead of ensuring the saw doesn't jump up out of your hand. The dust collector seems to pick up a larger percentage of the dust than other saws. Bad things: 1 - The right side fence does not slide. Not the end of the world, but seriously...what were you thinking? 2 - The blade guard is clear, but you really can't see through it to make accurate cuts. It's good enough when cutting framing, but skews your vision too much to cut trim. I have to pull the guard up, set my piece, drop the guard, then cut. It takes some getting used to but the positives far outweight the negatives. 3 - If you turn the miter table too quickly, the digital read out gives you a number that is way out of whack. Returning it to 0 degrees or a preset stop seems to reset it. September 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic saw Great saw! My digital display freaks out, but it has postive locks to work with. Better than Dewalt for the same price. Great tool. August 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lights... The two lights are not enough for good view sawing. And the protector blade are not clear to see the pencil line on Wood . I like to change for à Led lights.... August 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by fantastic value and perfect cut I love this saw it is so perfect and have absolutely no complaints about it. I use this saw at home and on site in England, even in slightly damp atmosphere it performs brilliant. May 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best SCMS on the market This saw is the workhorse of the 12 in SCMS's. We switch off between this saw and the DWS780, and I prefer this one. The direct drive provides a smoother start and more consistent cut, and the power is noticeably better in large framing lumber and hardwoods. The digital miter gauge is very handy, as well are the lights, but the bevel adjust is the best in class. The detant override and fine adjust also work very well in correlation with the digital readout. April 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by its the best saw made grind the right fence and it will slide January 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Saw I am a General Contractor and I just purchased this saw. I have used Hitachi, Makita and DeWalt comparables and this one is my favourite. The digital gauge is a little overkill but positve stops make this saw super accurate (similar to the DeWalt). The makita saws DO NOT hold their accuracy over a long period of use. The stand is not a great design but is very similar to most on the market. September 29, 2013
