DeWalt DW717
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - May 3, 2009

The DeWalt DW717 is a 10" double-bevel sliding miter saw offered by DeWalt. Powered by a 15 amp, 4,000 rpm motor, this is a durable and powerful saw. To ensure an accurate cut, the DW717 features a bevel detent system, adjustable stainless steel miter detent plate, precise miter system and a machined base fence support. A two piece blade guard system gives it some durability, and safety. This model has the best in class cutting capacity, with a dual bevel design for left or right rotation. The tall sliding fence handles 6-1/4" crown molding, and easily moves out of the way for bevel cuts. It has a 60° left and 52° right miter capacity. This is a lightweight and portable saw, weighing only 51 lbs. Features Exclusive bevel detent system Exclusive adjustable stainless steel miter detent plate Exclusive precise miter system Exclusive machined base fence system Two piece blade guard system ... PROS: (1) solid build quality - very little use of plastics (2) comparable to a larger 1" (3) fairly mobile considering its high level of functionality/performance (4) nice big fence (5) matches 1" saws from Bosch and Makita ... CONS: (1) stock blade does not do it justice (2) poor dust collection - common for DeWalt

5 Star Review   By SpudLauncher on Home Depot - Jun 2, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This tool is the best of the best. It is so easy to use. My wife got me the led accessory so I can easily line up the blade with my mark every time. The blade it came with isn't that bad, I've been using it for general cutting, but if I was building furniture, I'd be sure to get a higher toothed blade. As for the saw itself, it has performed beautifully. The 0 degree bevel wasn't plumb out of the box, but a good saw manufacturer realizes that these don't stay plumb forever and has instructions to correctly re-align it. I look forward to many years of use out of this tool.

Not too bad
5 Star Review   By Shophappy on Home Depot - Mar 21, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

The saw itself is quite an impressive product. This was a replacement for a really old 10" Dewalt chopsaw - having the blades on hand helped with the decision about the replacement size. Quick and easy setup and operates nicely right out of the box. You're going to want to purchase a better blade (unless all you plan on doing is rough crosscuts. I did purchase the Model D1090 - it'll do the job for my requirements. Just junk the included blade or put it in your cabinet for those days when you are cutting rough wood. In order to use the saw really effectively, one needs the handle mounted LED light and the extensions. The LED is great and worth the extra the extra money. This saw will be used in an enclosed shop so the LED works fine - not sure how it would be in the sunlight. The extensions (Model # DW7080) are another story. They do not install parallel (ie, they don't install level) to the work platform so you need to brace them up. Not a big deal but one would expect some better forethought. The dust collector on the unit could be improved - hook it up to a shop system with some 1.5" ID hose and a reducer and it's passable. In summary, I'm really happy with the saw and the accessories - it will serve me well for years. You really can't go wrong purchasing a quality product in the first place. I've never been disappointed with Dewalt products.

5 Star Review   By Icando4u on Acme Tools - Feb 5, 2013   

This product was right on, right out of the box. The only thing I would have wished different would be the blade it came with ( although the blade wasn't bad for an all purpose blade).

5 Star Review   By Oliver on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Researched a new saw for a while glad I did my homework. The saw I had prior was designed for a short life. Right out of the box you can see the difference in quality. I like having the best tools to last my lifetime and this definitely meets that criteria. Definitely pro for the home. No laser guide but can be purchased. Also picked up a blade for trim work. Comes with an agressive framing blade. Save money in the long run with this purchase. Oh and the 10.00 delivery was well worth it.

5 Star Review   By DJWilly on Home Depot - Oct 25, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

The saw was perfect out of the box not one adjustment required. Near perfect miters every time, saved me hours over my old 10" slider

Great Saw
4 Star Review   By Billtheengineer on Home Depot - Dec 15, 2010    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

It has the capacity of the 12 CMS is not better. Smooth start. The blade that came with it is only good for framing or rough work, not good for finish trim work. All the adjustments are easy to reach except the bevel, but most saws are not that easy to reach. The dust collection is ok, but then no miter saw is perfect. would be nice if there were a place to wrap the cord around.
