Things We Liked

Things We Didn't Like

  • Not Compatible with LED light – If you know that you can work better with LED light then you might not like the fact that this is not compatible with any LED light that you may have worked with in the past.
  • Clamp has to be purchased separately – There are a lot of other saws that come with a clamp because this is one of the essential parts that can make the saw work better but for this model, there is a need to purchase the clamp separately for an extra amount of cash.
  • Not Too Precise – Although it is accurate, this is not meant for work that will require a lot of precision.

Knowing the pros and cons of the product will help you decide if this is one product that is worth purchasing or not. Most of the time, the last cons are not really big issues for a lot of people but the fact that it is not compatible with LED light can be a bit off for a lot of people and you might find this important too.

Maintaining and Cleaning the Product

There are certain things that you ought to do to make sure that this product will remain to be in good working condition all the time.

  1. Make sure that you will remove any of the debris that may be left behind because of using the saw. This means that if there is sap left behind when you cut through some pieces of wood, you would have to remove that.
  2. Buff the cutting table and the fence. You may think that this is unimportant but this will allow you to check all the moving and loose parts of the saw. It will also help you determine if there are some parts that would need to be replaced or not.
  3. Use a dry pad in cleaning out areas of the miter saw. If there are some problematic areas, you may need to use a bit of cutting oil for some areas that do not get cleaned very easily.

With all of these tips to remember, cleaning can be done easier and without many issues at all.


There are always a lot of good thing that can be said about this product probably because of the different things that it can give.
