Tool News - Makita Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw

RATE THIS:

Makita recently announced the release of its new 10” Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw, model LS1016L.  The new Makita LS1016L features Deep and eXact cutting Technology (DXT): it is a 10” dual slide compound miter saw with the crown cutting capacity (vertically nested) of a 12” saw, and also has the increased accuracy of a 10-inch blade without the potential run-out of larger blades.


At 6-5/8”, the LS1016L has a very large crown molding cutting capacity.  Makita’s patented retractable rear guard provides the LS1016L with 4-3/4” baseboard cutting capacity (vertical).  The LS1016L also has a cross- cutting capacity of 12” at 90°.  In addition, the exclusive 6 linear ball bearings allow it to deliver smooth, solid and adjustment-free “dead-on” accurate cuts.  The saw also has a compact design with a patented 4-Steel Rail Sliding System that further increases rigidity to produce superior cuts, as the four steel rails experience less deflection.  The four steel rails also enable a more compact rear design than standard two-rail systems.  The result is a larger cutting capacity and more accuracy combined with a more compact rear design.


The LS1016L has four sliding fences: the exclusive 4-3/4” tall sliding fence system features upper and lower fence adjustments for more precise and versatile miter and bevel cuts.  The upper and lower fences slide to accommodate a variety of cutting applications.  The saw miters 0° to 52° left and 0 to 60° right, with positive stops at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 31.6°, and 45° (left and right).  The dual rear-handle bevel lock is easily accessible with adjustments 0° to 45° (left and right), with positive stops at 22.5°, 33.9°, and 45° (left and right).
