This is not to say that the DW712 is not a heavy-duty tool, it most definitely is. But DeWalt designed this tool for trim workers, cabinetmakers and general woodworkers. If you are in any of these categories, this is the tool for you.
DeWalt thought this one through with features such as miter cuts to 50º left and 60º right. In addition, there are seven positive stops in both directions. The DW712 has five pre-set bevel stops, 0, 33.9, 45, 48 and -2º.
A 15 Amp motor powers the DW712 and it has a no-load 5,400-rpm speed. An ergonomic horizontal handle is user friendly and makes this 43-pound saw easy to carry. DeWalt also includes a 30-tooth carbide-tipped blade.
