8-1/2â Slide Compound Miter Saw
The Makita 8-1/2â Slide Compound Miter Saw (model LS0815F) combines a compact and lightweight design with a powerful direct-drive motor. Portable and powerful, the LS0815F is an ideal cutting solution for applications ranging from woodworking and carpentry to room-to-room applications like finish, trim, and flooring installation.
The LS0815F is powered by a direct drive 10.5 AMP motor with soft start. This is a key point of difference, as users will experience smoother start-ups and constant power with no belts to slip or replace. The electric brake provides added convenience.
The linear ball bearing system is engineered to delivery smooth, âdead-onâ accurate cuts. At 90Â° the LS0815F has 12â crosscutting capacity, with 8-1/2â capacity at 45Â° (miter). The saw miters 0Â° to 50Â° left and 0 to 60Â° right, with positive stops at 0Â°, 15Â°, 22.5Â°, 31.6Â°, 45Â°, and 50Â° (left and right), and an additional stop at 60Â° (right). The dual rear handle bevel lock is easily accessible and adjusts 0Â°- 48Â° (left) and 0Â°- 5Â° (right) with positive stops at 0Â° and 45Â° (left).
The LS0815F weighs only 31.1 lbs. for increased portability. Additional features include a see-through blade guard system for greater visibility of the blade and line-of-cut. The ergonomic rubberized horizontal D-handle design has a better fit and added comfort, and the large trigger switch is designed for easier operation. The LS0815F also includes an L.E.D. light that illuminates the line-of-cut.
