DeWalt has introduced the DW718, the next step in the evolution of their line of miter saws. It boasts the largest cutting capacity of any of DeWalt’s current sliding miter saws.
The 12″ blade can cut 2″ by 16″ at 90 degrees, and cuts up to 2″ by 12″ on a 45 degree angle. With its double bevel capacity, you can cut compound angles on crown up to 11-1/4″. DeWalt also has created an optional laser guide to increase accuracy on these mammoth molding cuts.
Some features will remind you of past models: the stainless steel detent guides at common intervals, a cam lock handle to lock in at any degree, and the high back fence that slides out of the way for large bevels.
With street pricing around $560, it’s a large investment, but the increased cutting capacity could very well justify it.
