Appears this price at all the stores near me, but YMMV. Zip 16066 for reference.

Quote from Mr.Ooah
:
I just got the Dewalt 12", is there any benefit to having a smaller one? I got the 12" thinking it covers anything a miter is capable of.
I have a 12" miter saw and for basic weekend warrior stuff & I've never, ever needed more cut capacity. I also have a circular saw and table saw, however, to compliment things.

But I've installed wood floors, built a deck, and all sorts of random cutting with the miter saw and it's fulfilled all my needs.

There are certain power tools that I personally prefer corded/wired, I got RYOBI miter saw similar to this model but not cordless few months back and love it. I believe I got it for $149 from Home Depot. I guess cordless are more convenient for contractors to carry to different project sites but definitely would need second backup battery.

You need to hire that out
I did my stairs when I finished our basement, and I wish I contracted it out the stairs.

I did everything else plumbing, elec, framing, flooring but I did hire someone for the drywall to make it look good. Wink

Would this be good to build stairs with with? I was thinking this or the Ryobi. Which would be better?

The Ryobi is going to be much more powerful if you don't need a wireless option. It can do much wider cuts as well.

I'm not sure what you mean by "kickback", unless you had a work piece that wasn't sufficiently clamped against the fence.

On a sliding miter saw you need to worry about a self feeding climb cut getting out of control. This happens when the spinning blade grabs into the work piece and quickly walks right over the top of it and potentially into the user. To control this, don't use a blade with a high hook angle and lock the slide for plunge cuts, for slide cuts start with the slide extended and push away from you to make the cut (though a better finish is achieved by making a light score first as you pull the blade towards you, this should be done with caution).

7.25" blade and battery powered = pointless. there is a reason its $99
You have no idea what you're saying, I bought Milwaukee m18 7 1/4" slider and it does 95% of what my 12" dewalt double bevel did but weights 30lbs less and is very light to carry. Already sold my dewalt and mostly use the cordless one now.
Unless you only cut 4x4" the 7 1/4" double bevel slider can handle most of other tasks (I used it to cut 2x4", 2x6", hardwood, laminate, bamboo planks, molding, etc). The blades are also much cheaper (especially with diablo bogo at HD).
I'm basing it on my m18 though, not sure how kobalt handles some of those things since don't own one.

Thanks! I've been considering this saw for a while but couldn't justify almost $300. If you're already invested in the Kobalt 24v line, I would HIGHLY recommend adding one of these for $100

it is recommended that a Kobalt 24-volt max 6.0 Ah Li-ion battery is used with this tool. The batteries and charger are sold separately.

battery run another $50 to $80. I'll pass.
Or you can make your own 6Ah battery: https://youtu.be/93Dy7gYqe8U

I've also got the ridgid battery powered 7 1/2 miter saw and I love it. I can cut all day on a 5 amp battery pack. Also 7.5 inch blades are way cheaper than 12 inch. I have Bosch sliding dual compound miter saw as well built into a permanent miter station but I still use the 7.5 inch for breaking down stuff that might have nails before I burn it and for cutting small trim. Also for when I need to cut something at someone else's house or outside of mine.

For the actual steps, sure. (of course that depends on the runs of each step) If you're building stringers too, then no. That would be a circular saw.

Keep in mind, this requires the kobalt 24v battery which isn't included. The ryobi is plug-in.
the stair treads are usually 11-12" deep. this saw only cuts up to 10".

you can cut crown molding? sure with a lot of math gymnastics which most of us cant do. i can barely cut 4.5" tall molding with a 10" saw.
