Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Have! Ultimate tool.
I have one too. Nice saw. I'd look at the DWS716XPS instead. The DWS779 needs more clearance on the back side for those rails than the DWS716. The 716 model uses a different linkage that reduces the projection to the rear. It makes a difference if you're going to use the saw on a bench adjacent to a wall. If not, then no problem.
I bought a miter saw on an impulse as I was walking thru a big box store. Made a stand for it so the height was the same as the table saw & the work bench and set it up where it was easy to get to. It did not take long before I was seriously wondered what I'd done all my life without one!
I have a DW708 type 3. 22 years old. Grand daddy of the one pictured. Built a ton of stuff with it over the years, much with treated lumber. I couldn't begin to tell you how many hours of use.The armature gave out on it finally and it's not a spared part. I will replace the motor this summer. Has the original bearings (though they're wearing out), drive belt, etc. I bought a new Bosch GCM12SD as the glide design allows a little more cutting room and has no rail bearings among other advancements. Very happy with that unit. But DeWalt makes some excellent tools.
I gave up the one I had in the divorce, not a wise decision... So handy to have.
I have a Harbor Fright version. Useful, but it takes up far too much space in back. I'll probably upgrade to a simple compound miter saw at some point. The sliding feature isn't worth the added footprint. Festool and Craftsman and Makita have versions where the rails are fixed and the saw slides along them, so that's better, but still more capacity than I've needed to date.
