The new 8-1/2" Slide Compound Miter Saw (model LS0815F) is compact and ideal for contractors who require consistent cutting performance and superior jobsite-to-jobsite portability.
"The new LS0815F weighs only 31 pounds and delivers dead-on accuracy, so this is a go-to miter saw for contractors who carry a miter saw from job to job or room to room, says Joe Soto, Product Manager, Residential Construction.
Direct Drive: A Key Point of Difference
The LS0815F is powered by a direct drive 10.5 AMP motor with soft start. This is a key point of difference that distinguishes Makita miter saws, including the LS0815F. Users will experience smoother start-ups and constant power with no belts to slip or replace. The electric brake provides added convenience.
Accuracy and Capacity
The linear ball bearing system is engineered to deliver smooth, "dead-on" accurate cuts. At 90 degrees the LS0815F has 12-in. crosscutting capacity, with 8-1/2-in. capacity at 45 degrees (miter). The saw miters 0 to 50 degrees left and 0 to 60 degrees right, with positive stops at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6, 45, and 50 degrees (left and right), plus 60 degrees (right). The dual rear-handle bevel lock is easily accessible with adjustments 0 to 48 degrees (left) and 0 to 5 degrees (right) with positive stops at 0 and 45 degrees (left). For improved visibility, the L.E.D. light illuminates the line-of-cut.
Less Weight for Jobsite Portability
The LS0815F weighs only 31.1 pounds, the lowest weight in the category, for superior portability. Additional features include a high-quality 8-1/2-in. 48T carbide-tipped blade, a see-through blade guard system for greater visibility of the blade and line-of-cut, and a rubberized handle design with large trigger for better fit and added comfort. The LS0815F is ideal for wood floor installation, case and base, crown molding, finish carpentry, cabinet and furniture making, general construction, and more.
