Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by this saw was just what i was looking for! This saw was just what I was looking for.. I bought it with the stand. makes it easy to move and set up at the jobsite.Perfect for a diy person like me. its a well built saw I recommend this saw. November 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I love this saw except..... This saw is exactly what I needed. Everything was square out of the box. It works great except the dust collection port is in a bad location and isn't very effective. I'm trying to engineer something in my garage to make it better. Overall, this saw is an excellent buy. About $100 cheaper than compare able other brand name models. I've had it for 2 months now and I love it. November 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw This has been a great saw for me so far. The only problem I have had is the saw losing square a few times. It's not that hard to recalibrate, but the saw was not dropped or anything causing it to go out of square. Otherwise, saw cuts really well, dust collection works pretty average, and bevel stops are accurate. November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awsome miter saw The miter saw is awsome. It is very easy to use. The utility stand is very handy and sturdy. November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best miter saw I've ever had hands down I've had several miter saws in my time, from cheap $60 harbor freight to a $400 DeWalt 12". This Ridgid 10" slider is nice and compound even with the slider and makes the smoothest cuts. I would highly recommend this saw to anyone! I'll never go with another brand and the lifetime warranty is just an add on you can't turn down. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw for the money.. Great saw. I have owned this product for almost three years now. All the controls being up front makes for fast use, especially when doing trim work. You get a real bang for your buck with all the features this saw offers. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw I have used this saw many times, it has a smooth cut and easily cuts 2x12 with whatever bevel you need. The laser marks are fat (hard to line up with your mark) and impossible to see in bright daylight but this is not a feature I use. DYI'ers make sure you don't rely on the laser for your lengths. All other features are fantastic, crown lock on the slide works great. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product cuts great I love this saw and how easy it is to use. The saw cuts wood like its cutting thru butter it is that smooth. November 24, 2014

Saw is very easy to adjust, just pull up on the tab and turn. Bevel adjustment is also easy- just turn knob to loosen and tighten knob at desired degree.
