This is a clearance item at a Lowe's I was in today in the Dallas Metroplex. Brand new and still sealed. Lowe's.com shows it at $369 for Father's Day, but I picked mine up in clearance for almost another $100 off. It's a great saw and replaces my dewalt miter saw which was not a slider and didn't have the laser.

Only if you order online. I recently learned that many items will only take the military discount when ordered online. I recently got the woodworking bundle for $299 which is the newer lower price. I had it online was going to pick it up and it had my %10 military discount online. I had a return so I wanted to do them together. Good thing I noticed because it wasn't giving me the military discount in store. They couldn't apply it or another coupon, supervisor had to approve a price adjustment to listed price. Gave me a hard time too even though I showed them my online cart. They took so long doing this she acted like it's my fault and just said okay we'll mark it down this time but next time just buy it online. lol
Yes, I get that a lot from the cashier manager that will often refuse to call a store manager.... even though they claim they cannot override, which is also BS. ANY department manager can write down 10% for any product in the store.

Little known is the feedback program that determines bonuses and overall store ratings.... use them and maybe let the managers know you use them.
-----------------
Metabo, made in China, I will just buy the laser slider from Harbor Freight [harborfreight.com] when on sale (now $148) as we have done in the past for job specific throwaway saws that just keep on running after being abused. The laser is worthless compared to shadow cut and even more worthless out in the sun.

Quote from adorkable81 :
I'll go with 8 1/4" sliding before I go with 12" compounding. If you are a pro contractor, you know 12" compound is big waste of money.
Who manufactures an 8-1/4" sliding saw?

Actually, there are some posters here that were pro's.... well, probably before you were born, but there are several reasons why the non-circular 8" saw went out of style a few decades ago.

The 8 1/4" and 8 1/2" blades cost just as much as the 10" and often the 12", with a lot less options available locally, while your 45 degree cuts with a slider are typically limited to about the size of the diameter of the blade, which give or take a little, is commonly about 8" with less teeth for longevity of the blade. You cannot even miter vinyl siding in the gables, while just barely cross cutting. You can't do miters on much over 2 x 6 material, let alone 2 x10 and 2 x 12. Etc.

If one is square cutting thin material, the sliding 7 1/4" is probably a better option for a cheap saw and cheap blades you can find anywhere. But if you are production framing and the cut man, you want the sliding 12" for the power and versatility of say, later crown molding, etc.

But, if on a budget, you can pick up a nice radial arm saw for less than $100 that will do most everything.... that is what I started on with an Uncle that made cabinets on the job site. They are as accurate as you set them up with infinite adjustments, but people are a bit scared of them and why they are cheap. I found a 10" on Craigslist for free.... just come and pick up.

I'll take my 20lbs 8 1/4 sliding miter saw over the 12" compound miter saw anyway. How much that thing weight? 60lbs ???? Good luck cutting up plywood for flooring on the attic

lol.... and neither have you cut sheets of plywood with a 8-1/4" sliding miter saw... or for that matter, with any size.

I was able to pick one up at the Rocky River HD for $270 last week. They had 3 left at the time. You will need a stand for this thing. It is quite large and heavy compared to my 30 year old 10" non- sliding miter. Nice upgrade though!

got the last boxed one in E.Plano TX today. They still have the display and usually discount them even more if anyone wants to try.

Is a beast and not something you want to throw around everyday. Overkill for the DIY typically. I have a 12" chop that will pull duty about half the time as I can lug it in and out easily. If you can snag one for $269 that is a steal. Last saw I will buy. I will pick up the stand which is $200+ to complete the setup.

Great idea regarding the stand. I mounted this on my old Ridgid MSUV (Miter Saw Utility Vehicle, Item No. AC9940). The current version of this stand (AC9946) is currently on sale at Home Depot for $180, but I understand from other SD posts that Home Depot sometimes puts this on sale for $80 to $100.

Managed to score 1. Debating whether to keep it or wait for Dewalt 12 to go on sale. Any matching stand or recommendations.?

That's the cleanest floor model I have seen. The ones at my store are not worth buying for even $100
