[Home Depot] Milwaukee 12” Mitre Saw $498 - with free stand ($149 value)

Milwaukee 12” miter saw with free stand - great good deal IMO.
Saw has a digital readout for the cut angle which I love.
Expires July 10th while supplies last.

Have this, excellent saw with dead on accuracy out of the box. Cheapest price is $399 if you don't need the stand and seems to happen once or twice a year, so if you're not on a hurry and already have a good stand, slightly better pricing can be had.

Well worth $500 though with the stand if you don't have one. Beware this saw is a beast and takes up sizable space in your garage even when stowed. Also rectangular dust collector port is a bit of a nuisance if you have a shop with dust collection as you'll need to get an adaptor, ~$25.

Which is why I think these big saws don't make sense to use on a stand - these big saws are catered to people who have a dedicated workshop, in which case you should have a mitre saw station and not a stand. Just my 2 cents...

The good thing though, is that HD will usually pro-rate the discount on the free item across both items, so the receipt will likely have the saw for $384 and the stand for $115, in which case you can just return the stand and get the saw for a bit cheaper ;)

When Home Depot does a "buy x, get y free", your receipt will provide a separate return value for each item. If the sale price has been 399 in the past, I'm willing to bet the return value of the saw shows up around $399, with the stand being around $100. So if you only want the saw @ 399, that's probably an option if you just return the stand immediately (Note: The actual return values may vary, someone will have to buy this package for us to know for sure).

Great saw - picked this up last year. FYI - you need at least a 20 amp breaker to run this. Tried on 15 amp in my garage but kept tripping on start up.

Make a good point. I'm actually considering building a long narrow bench along the wall to put my mitre on. I have a rolling collapsible stand which is nice but it would be nicer to just have a workstation.

Same. 15 amp is fine, saw uses a soft start motor.

can also confirm. 15amp is fine. I think it would have to have a different plug if it required a 20amp circuit. not to mention its sales would suck

I would check over the outlet to see if there is anything wrong with it.

Sounds like you're running it off an arc fault breaker with the good old "arc fault nuisance tripping".
