This saw is the ideal tool for miter-cutting and crosscutting applications as it is equipped with a powerful motor and also has miter handle with a cam-lock which can be easily adjusted, convenient bevel and miter stops, decorative moldings which are oversized and it has a tall fence.

Powerful Motor and Smart Design that Delivers Accurate Cuts Quickly

This Dewalt Leaf Blowers and Miter Saw DW713 has a dependable and powerful motor of 15 amps which powers the 10 inch blade and gives 5000 rpm speed at no load. This makes it a powerful and fast tool for works like cutting, molding or framing and also for miter-cutting and crosscutting work.

This is featured with a detent override which is very convenient in adjusting the setting of the miter without any slippage of the saw into the detents of the miter. The versatility of the saw is enhanced by the large capacity of the miter which ranges from 0 degrees to 50 on both right and left.

Additionally the fence is quite tall and supports a vertically nested crown molding of 4.5 inches. The fence also has a vertically set base molding of 6 inches. This fence also slides conveniently, so that it is not in the way while making bevel cuts.

Convenient Stops and More Bezel Capacity

Getting bevel cuts which are accurate and quick is possible because of the design of this saw. The set up is easy and you can get bevel cuts on the left measuring between 0 degrees to 48 and on the right measuring 0 to 3 degrees. Such a setup is quite handy and increases the capacity needed for big jobs. Also the positive stops of the bevel between 0 degrees and 45 make it easy to set the usual bevel angles, thus making the process easy and quick.

The saw is ideal for many applications and can deliver clean bevel cuts of 45 degrees through lumber having dimensions of maximum 2 x 6 inches.

Increased Portability and DEWALT LED System and Laser Compatible

The saw is quite portable on the jobsite as it weighs only 35 pounds and has a carry handle which is in-built for easy lifting.

For more accuracy and utility, the saw can be hooked up with the LED DEWALT DWS7085 which is a cut line indicator and work light, and also with the adjustable miter DW7187 laser system. Both these accessories are sold separately and can ensure accuracy and clear visible cutting path.

What current owners have to say about DEWALT DW713 10-Inch Compound Miter Saw

I purchased this saw in 2008 January and continuously used it for a huge moulding project. Previously I had borrowed and worked with the Craftsman miter compound saw which was considered professional but using it I learnt otherwise. This made me think that whenever I bought a saw I would look for a saw which had a better quality rather than a saw with a host of features and mediocre components. I was impressed with the DW713 which has a guard for the blade and a tall fence along with a bag that is really able to capture the dust. The gauge/table of the miter is of high quality and thankfully without stickers, and the powerful motor of 15 amps is encased in a sturdy and stout frame. A miter lock is far superior to the type which has a screw and the override of detent is extremely handy when doing angles which are not the usual angles but just close.

Final Words

My DEWALT DW713 is used every day by me and is an excellent miter saw. Although the reviews suggest a flimsy bevel scale, I feel that is how it should be as it is easier for zeroing the pointer after the saw alignment. All the components work beautifully and getting it for only 220 is just great. All carpets in my house needed changing and the engineered floor needed a lot of cutting. The job was precisely and cleanly performed by this great miter saw.
