The DeWalt DW778-GB compound sliding mitre saw is both portable and precise. Accuracy comes as standard thanks to the saw's XPS shadow line cut indicator which casts a shadow where the blade will fall, ensuring easy alignment. The dust extraction facility protects the user from the health risks of airborne dust particles and the tool has a high cutting capacity due to its 1850W motor and compact internal rail design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by An exceptional investment I have been building items as part of various DIY projects and have been using a much cheaper Mitre saw that was struggling with the sizes of wood I need to get cuts on. With the sale and a little bit of thinking I purchased the DeWalt Sliding Mitre saw. From the first cut it is joy, the strong motor is quieter than I expected and the 40 tooth bade, once used to the ways to get get the best cuts almost polishes the wood. What would have taken hours of cutting and checking angles on the old saw was done in a fraction of the time and it was a disappointment. Never has cutting would been so much fun! Just a word of advice with the ejection port make sure it at least points outside or you will be sweeping up for a while. 2 Jan 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product at a great price DeWalt products are generally regarded as the best on the market and this saw is no exception. Great versatility and incredible capacity for a saw that can claim to be portable. Add it to a DeWalt saw stand and you have kit that will last even the most demanding DIYer or professional a very long time indeed! Great price from Screwfix too! 2 Jan 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A joy to use I was reluctant to part with £300 but this is an absolute joy to use, it cuts clean and true straight out of the box, unlike cheaper brands that apparently need adjusting before use. The 1850W motor drives the 40 tooth blade cleanly and effortlessly through the wood, whilst the extraction port takes the dust away from the work area. I can't comment on reliability since it's brand new. Well worth the investment, no wonder they have sold out at sale price of £200 off! 31 Dec 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great quality feels and works great Would buy more of this companies tools as the quality is obvious when using 31 Oct 2014
