The Dewalt DWS780 12″ sliding miter saw is on sale right now, and eligible for added coupon savings on top of that. This is Dewalt’s best corded 12″ sliding miter saw.
Right now (September 5, 2023), more than one retailer has the miter saw on sale for $499. Not only that, it’s eligible for $75 coupon savings, bringing the price down to $424 with free shipping.
At Amazon, you have to “clip” the coupon on the product page prior to adding the miter saw to your cart. At Acme Tools, use coupon code YELLOW.
The DWS780 does not usually go on sale. On occasion, it’s bundled with a free or discounted portable stand. It’s rare for a tool like this to be both on sale and eligible for additional coupon savings.
The DWS780 miter saw increased in price from $600 to $649 last year, and its list price has apparently inched up to $669.
The Dewalt DWS780 features a dual bevel adjustment (49° left and right), 3800 RPM blade speed (no-load), 50° left and 60° right miter range, and LED CutLine blade positioning system that casts a shadow where the saw blade will make its cut.
With the back fence design it can cut up to 2×14 construction lumber in a single pass at 90°, and 2×10 at 45°. It can cut nested crown molding up to 7-1/2″, and base molding vertically at 6-3/4″.
As mentioned, the DWS780 is Dewalt’s best 12″ sliding miter saw. The DWS779 is their typical holiday season promo model, with a few differences, such as not having the CutLine positioning system.
This and other Dewalt 12″ miter saw models were recalled last year – see Dewalt Recalls Nearly 1.5 Million Miter Saws. A “stop sale” was issued prior to that. As long as you buy from authorized dealers (such as the ones linked-to above), you should be getting fresh or verified inventory.
If this 12″ sliding miter saw doesn’t suit your needs, keep in mind that there will be a second Prime Day in October, and the holiday shopping season will follow on its heels.
