A Great Saw with a Bunch of Power
The Dewalt 12″ Heavy-Duty Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw DW718 makes no compromises with its powerful 15.0 amps and no load speed, 3,600 rpm motor, which delivers amazing extended power coupled with outstanding durability.
Extremely Adjustable With Innovative Fence Design
In keeping with the trend in tools to be as adjustable and flexible as possible, the engineers of the DW718 saw fit to include an adjustable stainless steel miter and detent plate into it’s design. Emphasizing the benefits of increasing productivity, the adjustable miter has 10 positive stops which also significantly improve cutting accuracy. Additional emphasis was dedicated to improving this tools cutting accuracy, with the inclusion of a precise miter system and a machined base fence. In addition and specifically designed for those who are cutting crown molding up to 6-5/8″ nested, as well as base molding up to 6-1/2″ vertically against the fence, a tall sliding fence was added to the design.
When bevel cuts are needed the DeWalt DW718 converts easily by allowing the user to quickly slide the tall fence out of the way. For vertical cuts, DeWalt has built upon the success of previous models by making enhancements to the gearbox and belt-drive in this unit. Furthermore, the Heavy duty Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw has a single lever action double bevel design which easily bevels left or right at 0° – 48° with positive stops at 0°, 22.5°, 33.9° and 45° in both directions, while still permitting the saws operator to flip the saw with out flipping the material. Another DeWalt exclusive is that the back fence design cuts up to 2 x 16 dimensional lumber at 90° and 2 x 12 at 45°. It can miter 60° to the left, and 50° to the right, providing an increase in the saw’s overall capacity that is almost unheard of. Finally, the DeWalt DW718 features a dual horizontal steel rail with an innovative clamping mechanism and linear ball bearings, which coalesce nicely to deliver one of DeWalt’s most accurate, durable, and compact saws ever.
