Everything I expected

During the short time I have used the saw, it has yet to live up to all the hype. The stock blade is junk. Throw it away. I had to shim the right fence to bring it into allignment with the left fence. Several adjustments were required right out of the box to square up the saw. The bevel lock handle...

Runs great! Smooth cuts. Required total re-setup for accurate cutting after shipping. Table and fences were hard to level and square.

I'd been drooling over this saw since I read the first reviews of it some time back, and it's everything they say it is: powerful, smooth and accurate...right out of the box. Like most Bosch products, it's engineered and built to be used. Controls are well thought out and every piece serves a purpos...

This saw is fantastic! Took it out of the box and checked its calibration... It was dead on. You're buying a high quality tool with this setup. Everything is well thought out and designed, from the packaging to the articulating arms to the up front controls. The finest details, such as the beveled t...

Lets start by saying that I am fussy and want my tools to work precisely. This saw meets my expectations in all areas but one or two. I'll start with those. 1) The saw blade arbor has a small amount of play. On inspection I found that the blade end of the arbor is supported by a ball bearing that i...

The box the saw was shipped in was damaged on all sides and retaped to keep it closed. The good news is that the saw was not damaged and setup was easy. Thanks to whoever designed the good packaging around the saw and protection of the shipping box. Saw works good. I would like a lazer if it was av...

it does everything review said it would. this is a professional tool.

Hold on to the saw when you turn it on. There is plenty of power. The only downside is there is no laser guide with the saw. Had to buy it extra. Would like a stop in the table for repetitive cuts. Table and fence slide easily as well. Would have also liked more instruction on how to set the miter d...

Excellent saw, Checked the setting when I opened the box, found the dead on. Carry the saw to from the job site daily and it works I a champ

I got this combo at my local store...The promo ends on 1-04-2012. The saw is awesome and accurate right out of the box. The led light, which comes with it, project's a shadow of the blade on to your work material and is IMAO better than a laser. The dust collection is definitely improved and hooks r...

I have been waiting for a sale on this saw for some time. The new version is awesome and the rolling stand just makes it that much better. All I have to say is this is probably the best purchase I have made! A must buy for anyone thats in the market!!!

Forget lasers. The LED light on this unit works great and you know precisely what is left and what is cut. The rest of the saw is as expected. It cuts and miters great. When it arrived at my house, I expected the alignment to be off, but using my trusty quick square, I realized no adjustment was ne...

Ready to rock and roll out of the box. This saw with table included is ready for any job. I really like the "shadow" line the light projects onto your work very accurate. It took some time to assemble the table but once in service really provides stability and portability to all jobs. Excellent very...

This is a great product! As with most Dewalt products, you can instantly see and feel the quality. But... the product description should really have stated/shown that it DOES include the universal saw mounting brackets that are also sold separately. These brackets ARE shown on the version of the sta...

Got this as a gift 3 years ago. Easy to assemble and use. No problems with very heavy use. I use with both my 10" and 12" Dewalt mitre saws. This stand was designed by someone that set out to build a mitre saw stand that works well and it does. I have read some reviews that were critical of the mobi...

It's not a Cadillac, more like a Lamborghini. The LED light that cast a shadow of the blade is simply genius. I had lasers on my last saw but this you won't have to worry about adjusting. What else needs to be said? It's a sliding, double beveled beauty.

Was torn between the ridgid and the dewalt. I am extremely happy with this one. Seems very well built compared to the ridgid and what made my decision easier was the free stand i got with it. Stand was easy to assemble, all and all I'm very satisfied. The slide seemed a little stiff which was a conc...

The combination of this saw and this stand works great together. Used this saw and stand to overhaul the inside of a large restaurant. Too many board feet of cuts to mention here. Very precise and durable for the price.

Dewalt has thought of everything on this saw. All setting can be adjusted if need be. Out of the box it cut PERFECT! Easy to use, and much quieter than I expected. The rolling stand is great. Even a place for the included tools. Simply a great tool! cons: The handle on the stand could be a little l...

Questions & Answers

Are the wheels on the gravity rise wheeled miter saw stand full rubber or is there air inside them?

Thanks for the question. The T4B Miter Saw stand newer wheel version are hardened plastic tires. It doesn't need to be filled with air. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

Rubber with no air (no valve stem)

full rubber

They are not inflatable. So I assume they are solid material.

The wheels are pretty solid. No air in them at all.

Is this a double beveled saw?

No, this is a single bevel saw.

Yes it's the 780

dws780 is listed as a dual bevel

No, this is not double bevel

This is a DWS780 package. Dual bevel! Oversized bevel scale makes bevel-angle adjustments accurate and easy (bevels from 0 - 49 degrees right and left)

Yes, Dual bevel/ Double bevel Terminology different by Dewalt. Same difference. Looked at my ne in store yesterday 5/12/17

All Mitre Saws listed on Dewault website are double bevel. They do not sell anything else.

Yes this saw is capable of cutting a double bevel.


Did anyone bottom out and cut through base of saw?

Ouch! I've only had mine less than a year but no this hasn't happened to me.

No, your saw was improperly set up at the factory. there are stops that you can adjust so that this will not happen, or did you happen to cut thru the fence when making an angle cut?

Yes. Had to return mine. Cuts about 1/4 too deep. No adjustment for this.

How much clearance does this saw need from a wall? I'd like to install it onto a workbench that ...

If your work bench is only 24" deep and flush with the wall this saw is too big unless you pull it away from the wall. The front of the mounting base to dust collector (without the bag) is 27". The saw at 90 deg. from the overall is 39". I use mine on a Rigid folding stand that works just great for me.

From the hilt to the very back of the saw extended is about 41inches. I assume you have some extra clearance on your stand? You should be ok if you have 2ft of radius.
