Miter saw with XPS light and NO Blade.

CCC image attached; rarely drops below $350.

The XPS system is amazing; none better. It's not sliding but that means it will stay more accurate. This is the best price ever on my favorite miter saw.

WAY too heavy for reselling unless you're some kind of ninja. If anyone has ideas on how to make money off this please let me know.

Like hell you do. You absolutely *do not* need a sliding miter saw for normal trim work unless you're working with some big mamma jamma trim/molding.

Never considered that not sliding would mean more accurate. Makes sense though.

The sliding mechanism adds another axis to come off center.

I have the sliding version and it's incredible. I used it all the time till I got my battery powered 7.25" and haven't touched it in about 2 years. It's hard to justify getting the 12" monster out when a tiny 7.25" will work. 12" is a ton.

Thanks for the insight.

I have the flexvolt version of this and it's awesome. If you have flexvolt tools I think it's worth waiting for a deal on that one since you can use the batteries or the converter. I got mine for $300 from HD without batteries but it came with the converter and the blade.

After scrolling past the pictures, in the 'Product Description' paragraph it says it includes a blade: "Includes: DW716XPS Compound Miter Saw, Carbide Tooth Blade, Dust Bag, Blade Wench."

Anyone know if it comes with the 60t blade or not?

This was available for $249 on Thanksgiving WITH an extra 80T Finishing blade. (Made the saw $220 and the extra blade $28) Just used it for base and Casing. My old school Trim Carpenter Cousin was impressed with the saw and blade (esp for the price) and also once we got used to the XPS light/shadow, we loved it.
Highly recommend.

BTW, there 'should' be a blade with this saw. I think 60T ? It's just not the combo option.

No laser guide, no deal. I've gotten far too used to that on the much cheaper saw I'm running now to ever go back.
Laser is nice but the Dewalt Shadow mark is not bad and accurate.

I knew a builder who used this for cutting trim, which I thought was a mistakes. Later that year I talked to reps for DeWalt at the national builder show. They said this is not accurate enough for finish carpentry. A slide arm saw is great for framing. Fine Homebuilding had the same conclusion.
