The Dewalt DW713 Compound miter saw is feature packed and carries a lot of power for a saw this size. This single bevel saw is ideal for home usage and will give you a lot of cutting options. It has been really well designed, in usual Dewalt style. They seem to have a great understanding of what a user needs and wants from any of the power tools they make, and you get all of the features that are really useful on any of their tools.
The ergonomic design makes the use of the Dewalt DW713 extremely easy and comfortable. It has a wide range of set up features and is very versatile in its cutting ability. For miter saws in this price range, you will not find many that have the same amount of useful features as the DW713 has. We have tried saws that are almost twice the cost of the DW713 but do not produce the quality results that this model does.
The powerful 15 amp motor on the Dewalt DW713 will ensure you have all the ability you need to make clean and precise cuts. It has a no-load speed of 5,000 RPM, which will get the blade through thick dense wood without any problems. The power of the motor also keeps the blade going strong even when cutting larger pieces, so you can get the quality cuts you need.
Bevel and miter cutting capabilities
The cutting range that the Dewalt DW713 provides will enable you to cut the angles you need to get the work done efficiently. With a bevel cut range from 0 to 48 degrees to the left, and also a cut that measures 0 to 3 degrees to the right-hand side. The bevel angles are quick and easy to set up, and the bevel stops at 0 and 45 degrees make for accurate cuts each and every time.
The miter capacity on the DW713 is also impressive, ranging from 0 to 50 degrees on both rights and left sides. The miter handle has a cam lock that will give you the miter angle you need quickly and easily. There is also a detent override so that you can select any angle you desire rather than just the preset angles, to give you added versatility and range.
This miter saw is fairly light, weighing in at just 35 pounds. This is ideal if you need to move it around the place or take it out on site. It also has a convenient carrying handle that makes lifting and carrying that much easier.
The Dewalt DW713 is also compatible with the DWS7085 L.E.D. work light and cutting line indicator, as well as the DW7187 adjustable laser system. Both of these items are sold separately. By adding either of these two items you will give yourself that much more accuracy potential.
