The Makita 10 In. dual-bevel sliding compound miter saw with laser (model LS1019L) delivers large cutting capacity and accuracy right out of the box. With the LS1019L, you'll get all the cutting performance you need in a slide compound saw, but with the most compact size in the category for increased portability. With up to 6-5/8 In. capacity (crown molding, nested) jobs like cutting baseboards and crown molding are a snap, but with up to 4-3/4 In. baseboard, capacity, it can cut 4 x 4 dimensional lumber in one pass. It's ideal for fine woodworking, carpentry, general construction, and more. The LS1019L is powered by a 15 AMP direct drive motor with soft start, a key point of difference. This means smoother start-ups and consistent, constant power with no belts to slip or replace. The electric brake provides added convenience. The LS1019L will tackle the most demanding jobs while keeping production high.
