The DW715 is powered by a 15-amp motor and comes equipped with a 12-inch carbide blade that spins at 3,600 rpm. Accuracy is a critical component for a solid miter saw, and the DW715 delivers. The DW715 incorporates an adjustable stainless steel miter detent plate with 11 positive stops for the most common miter cuts. The saw features a miter detent override that allows the user to override the miter stops and adjust to the miter setting desired without the saw slipping into the miter detents while the new precise miter system delivers more repeatable and accurate miter angles. The cam lock miter handle eliminates the need to twist the miter handle to lock in on the miter angle and delivers a quick and solid miter lock. The innovative machined base fence design delivers long-term fence straightness by providing additional support to the fence. The DW715 delivers the capacity to cut up to 6-1/2-inch base molding against the fence when mitered to the left and crosscut capacity up to 2 x 8 dimensional lumber. The DW715 is designed to accept the DW7187 DEWALT Adjustable Miter Saw Laser System (SOLD SEPERATELY, NOT INCLUDED) which delivers visibility to the cut path. The saw can be beveled to the left 0 to 48 degrees and to the right 0 to 3 degrees with positive stops at 0, 45 and 33.9 degrees for cutting crown molding lying flat. Weighing in at less than 42 pounds and equipped with comfortable side handles in the base, the DW715 is designed to be extremely portable. The DW715 includes an extension kit, carbide blade, blade wrench and dust bag.
