For only $219, I was more than surprised to see the number of innovative features the DEWALT DW715 offered. Below are a few that stood out for me.
Great powerful design for fast precise cuts This 12 inch single-bevel compound miter saw is backed by a strong and reliable 15 amp rotor which offers an insanely fast speed of 4000rpms. This makes the tasks of molding, cross cutting, miter cutting and frame cutting very easy and quick to finish.
The design is quite different from the DEWALT DWS780. The DEWALT DW715 has a more durable design that allows it to deliver a flexible setup with optimum accuracy for a number of applications. Unlike the DEWALT DWS780 that has an adjustable stainless steel detent plate that offers 10 positive stops, the DEWALT DW715 offers 11.
In addition to this, it is has a basic adjustable cam lock miter handle that deliver fast and precise miter angles as well as allowing detent override. The saw also has a lengthy fence which supports 5-1/4 inch crown molding nested vertically and a 6-1/2 inch base molding which is set vertically against the fence.
Added bevel capacity and convenient stops Specifically designed for speed and accuracy, the DEWALT DW715 is ideal for a number of applications. The saw can transfer flawless 45 degree bevel cuts through lumber measuring up to 2×8 inches. It allows you to set up bevel cuts between 0 and 48 degrees to the left and bevel cuts between 0 and 3 degrees to the right. This provides added capacity for big jobs.
In addition to this, the DEWALT DW715 has a hard as nails steel bevel that stops at 0, 33.9, 45 and 48 degrees. Finding and setting bevels angles is definitely a lot quicker and easier with this machine
Portability If there is one thing I like about the DEWALT DW715 review, it has got to be its portability. It’s light weight makes it easy to carry and transport. Weighing in at only 40lbs and with a built in carry handle, moving the machine around the job site will not be a hassle.
Cons Of course, you must be wondering whether the DW715 has got flaws. Well, yes. I guess the only con I have about this saw is that it doesn’t come with a laser. I mean at this price, it should at least come with a laser to show you where you are cutting.
- Saw is quiet and cuts effortlessly.
- It has an easy to read miter scale. It’s big enough to read through the sawdust and wood chippings.
- The 32 tooth blade will make it easier for you to cut through wood faster.
The DEWALT DW715 comes with a three- year limited warranty, a one year free service contract plus a 90 day money back guarantee. How cool is that?!
Customer ratings From the varied and quite considerable number of customer testimonials I went through, many had nothing but glowing tribute for the DW715. In fact, here are a just a handful I selected from Amazon and a few other stores:
#1 “Tools like this one just re-affirm my belief in buying quality the first time.”
#2 “Works great out of the box, plenty of power to handle whatever I’ve thrown at it.”
#3 “This is a wonderful saw very powerful, well engineered and easy to use.”
Summary My take on the DEWALT DW715 is that it is a powerful, accurate and fast saw. The price is right for what it offers and it gets the job done effortlessly. Moreover, there is a 3 year warranty and 90 day money back guarantee just incase you might experience troubles or any buyer’s remorse. Why not check it out for yourself!
