I'm really struggling between this and the DeWalt DWS779. This one has better angles and 2000 RPM more power, but apparently the first generation was plagued with wobbling issue. The DeWalt is also the same price (link below).

Anyone has any opinions?

I was eager to find out how a sliding mitre saw achieves a 70 meter capacity. So disappointed...

I have a Dewalt, but a much older one, back when they were made in USA. It cost a lot more back then. It’s heavy (heavier than these) and has kept working well.
I’m sure either will be fine and also either has a chance of being defective. Pick one, set it up by checking angles and adjusting as needed. If it has a lot of runout (wobble), bring it back.

And get a better blade (applies to all saws).

The Dewalt is also on sale @ amazon for the same price.

I've personally used this saw for the past few summers building decks. I can't say that there's anything that I don't like about it, except that it doesn't come with a light or laser, but that's not a huge inconvenience and either can be added afterward supposedly.

I have no experience with this Rigid saw so cannot speak on it, but their tools are generally not on the same level of quality as Dewalt's. All else being equalish and with the Rigid saw having wobbling issues, I'd recommend the Dewalt and save yourself some headaches down the line dealing with the wobbling issues and customer service.

Good luck with your decision, happy building.

How does this compare to the Ryobi single bevel sliding mitre saw with stand?

https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi- ... 1000788427

I know the brushless 2 battery one came with a stand and could be found for cheap, but I’d rather have corded
For starters, it's a 10" blade vs. a 12" on the Rigid and the DeWalt. Less power and angles.

Thanks guys. I ended up buying Rigid and then returned it to get the DeWalt one. There's nothing wrong with Rigid but I am so much more comfortable with DeWalt that I decided to go with it. I have to admit, the bells and whistles on the Rigid one are so much better!
