Amazon and Home Depot have the Dewalt DWS780 12″ sliding miter saw on sale, and for the unbelievably low price of $349!
I reviewed this saw a while ago, and have regretted giving it away to Habit for Humanity. It cut smoothly, the LED cutline indicator system worked beautifully well, and I miss its cutting capacity.
This is Dewalt’s flagship miter saw, with all the bells and whistles you could ask for.
The DWS780 is regularly $600 and almost never gets discounted. When there is a promo on this top-of-their-line miter saw, it’s usually for a free miter saw stand.
This isn’t the most portable saw, but this seems to be true for all 12″ sliding miter saws. It’s manageable.
- 12″ blade
- Cuts up to 2×14 lumber, 2×16 with back fence
- 60° miter (right), 50° (left)
- Dual bevel
- Weighs 58 lbs
Sale Price: $349
Update 11/28/19 4:05pm: Amazon has sold out (or taken the listing to preserve inventory), and Home Depot looks to have done the same, presumably to preserve inventory for tomorrow (Black Friday).
Darn it. I had been leaning very heavily towards the Dewalt DWS716XPS non-slider miter saw that’s on sale today, but at this price, I might need to pick up the DWS780 for my workshop. Decisions, decisions.
I don’t think I’ve seen this miter saw on sale for anywhere near this price before.
