The DEWALT double-bevel sliding compound miter saw’s 12-inch blade is backed by a powerful and dependable 15 amp motor. Offering a no-load speed of 3,600 rpm, it makes quick work of cutting framing or molding, as well as other crosscutting and miter-cutting jobs.

This sturdy saw is designed to deliver precise cuts, allowing for the versatile setups required for miter applications. The precise miter system’s adjustable stainless steel miter detent plate features 11 positive stops. An easy-to-adjust cam-lock miter handle delivers quick and accurate miter angles, and features a convenient detent override, which allows you to adjust the miter setting without the saw slipping into the miter detents. And the saw’s big miter capacity–0 to 60 degrees to the left and 0 to 50 degrees to the right–adds versatility.

Tall Fencing and Compact Sliding Rails
The tall fence supports 6-5/8-inch crown molding nested vertically, as well as 6-1/2-inch base molding set against the fence. The fence slides out of the way easily when it’s time to make bevel cuts. This saw stays compact thanks to its dual horizontal steel rails, which feature an innovative clamping mechanism and linear ball bearings for increased accuracy and durability.

Increased Bevel Capacity and Convenient Stops
This saw is designed to deliver quick, accurate bevel cuts. You can easily set up for bevel cuts that measure between 0 and 48 degrees to the left and to the right. This handy setup provides increased capacity for big jobs and allows you to flip the saw instead of the material. Plus, with hardened steel bevel stops at 0, 33.9, 45 and 48 degrees on both sides, it makes finding and setting the most common bevel angles a quick, easy process.

Ideal for a range of applications, the saw’s unique fence design allows it to deliver clean, 45-degree bevel cuts through dimensional lumber measuring up to 2 by 12 inches. At 90-degrees, it can cross cut 2 by 16s.

Portable and Compatible with the DEWALT Laser System
This lightweight compound miter saw weighs just 53 pounds and features a built-in carry handle, so you can move it around the jobsite easily and lift it comfortably when it comes time to stow the saw at the end of the day.

For additional accuracy and ease of use, this saw is compatible with a DEWALT DW7187 (sold separately) adjustable miter saw laser system (sold separately), which ensures that the cutting line is easy to see via a red laser line.

This 12-inch double-bevel sliding compound miter saw also comes with a DEWALT warranty package that includes a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Serious Quality Issues!!!… I have just recently purchased the new DW718 double-bevel sliding compound power miter saw with the high hope of a getting something really nice. Boy was I wrong! I really had high hopes since the older DW708 was a nice saw! Firstly, the table is smaller than the dw708, the rails are 1 inch in diameter (rather than the common 1 3/16″) this smaller rail system causes major power head deflection!!!! Accuracy is severely compromised by too much head flex – even worse is how over 14…

Very poor Quality/Jay is right Jay has it right on. I also own a dw706,I am not trying to bash DeWalt,I have many yellow tools and the 706 is a good saw for base and crown capacity upright. This dw718 is something like you would expect from Harbor Freight Tools Brands,the castings alone are very crude. $720 with laser,and a cheap series 20 60th blade is way too much. It went back. I bought a ls1013L, what a difference,great saw,super build/finish. The laser is preinstalled,can move line without tools to eitherside of…

Excellent Saw I purchased the new DeWalt DW718 shortly after receiving an introductory DVD of the new 12″ miter saws sent to me by DeWalt. I was impressed by the presentation on the DVD which exhibited the improvements, compact size, larger capacity, ease of miter and bevel adjustment and the new laser alignment system. I’ve had a 10″ Makita compound slider saw for years and have used it extensively. The limited capacity and lack of a laser alignment sight were serious drawbacks. I’ve held off buying a…
