Great saw.

I was cutting wood to build a frame for a window AC (sliding window so you need a frame above the window AC) and XPS worked just fine with the 3-4PM sun beating down.

The bi-directional angle cuts made it easier to cut down 2x4s simply by flicking the lever.

I've connected the hose to a dust collection unit, or just leave it off. The bag clogs up.

Cutting 4x4 pressure treated lumber for a wood log rack works. As does 6x12 for trusses. Get the slider.

I swap blades between the fine miter and 10" diablo demo blade for fast cuts (eg 4x4 above) as necessary.

Get a Rigid rolling stand for easier portability. You won't notice the 15lbs. It's also a fast option to detach and place upon a bench or table.

Been waiting for a deal on this specific miter saw, so I am in for 1 one. I had it sitting in my cart for a while, so that I could monitor the price. Now I just need to find a good deal on a miter saw stand. Recommendations anyone?

In for one! I had my eyes on the 779 but I really don't think I'll be cutting wide boards to justify the need for a slider. I also wanted the XPS system and to add that to the 779, it would be an additional $50.

I'm on edge between getting a sliding 10" and this. Can someone convince me to either pull the trigger or wait? I'm a DIYer, planning to renovate my house. I'm not expecting to do anything crazy but if I get good at this carpenter stuff, then who knows? I read up on this saw and a lot of people have been complementing their accuracy, which is important to me!

Planned uses:
- Cutting baseboards + crown moulding
- Expanding / upgrading my shack. Redo framing, roofing, and interior.
- Cutting boards (End grain probably). I know a table saw is better but I don't have space until I upgrade my shack.

Those sliders are crazy heavy and awkward to move around. If you're like me and don't have a wood shop, and store your miter saw on a garage shelf until you need it, then take it out and set it up and later put it back away, you'll probably want to avoid a heavy slider. A !2" miter will cut most common sizes of boards, and for bigger ones, you can use a circular saw.

Get the DWS779 over this in my opinion. You'll regret dropping $300 on a non slider when the time comes and u need to cut a larger piece of wood. Yes this model has the shadow line but after u gain experience of making cuts as a newbie, u won't need the shadow line. If the shadow line is a big deal to u then u can always make your own. YouTube has videos on it.
I see it's currently discounted to $399, is that a good price for the one you recommend? Or is it a pretty standard discount?

Meh. You can pick dual bevel sliding near me new for < $400 on offerup or marketplace pretty often.

Dang it! My Lowes didn't have the XPS saw a month ago. I picked up the 716 without it and it's a fine saw...but I wanted the XPS. Wonder if I can return it...??? I no longer have the box. Frown

I see the DEWALT Sliding Compound Miter Saw, 12-Inch (DWS779) for $370. That seems like a deal as well, would others agree that $70 spread between the OP and the DWS779 means good value for both, but if sliding is what you want, a better deal to pay-up $70?

The 779 doesn't have XPS which is about a $50 upgrade and your time to install. Just food for thought!

Just a heads up for those on the fence between this and the DWS779 (double bevel sliding). I got the DWS779 last year from Amazon for $299, so it does occasionally go on sale for the same price. I then added the XPS cut kit from mmttool that someone linked above to it as well. It is large and bulky but, I have it on a rolling stand so I don't really mind and it offers the most cut flexibility I could ask for in a miter saw. I use either the 7 1/4" 18v miter for simple 2x4 projects or the sometimes the 10" corded miter for jobs where it's not just 2x4 cuts but, for any real projects (like redoing the deck, etc.) I wheel out the Dewalt because I can cut pretty much anything I need (within it's dminesions) using it.

Thanks for the input. I haven't used a miter saw before but I saw online that it's possible to switch in a 10" blade. I was on edge between a 10" vs a 12" saw since
- I'm not sure how often I'd need to cut something that big
- 10" has a smoother cut, less deflection, more TPI

Would swapping a 10" blade here be a smart option? Or is that a waste?

Don't forget that if you buy from Lowe's at $299 there's the $30 military discount available, active and vets.

Is this the one you're referring to: LINK [homedepot.com]

I have the Dewalt non-rolling stand, but would like to get a rolling one. Will the Dewalt (I have the DWS780) work with the Ridgid stand using the mounting braces that come with the Dewalt?
