I was going to buy this but ended up with the 10" sliding compound mitre saw instead.

- No LED guide, just a shadow line

- 7 1/4" is just too limiting for lots of things

I had to do some woodwork recently and glad I didn't get the smaller one personally.

Curious what it is too limited for. Thanks!

Is it possible to cut a 4x4, or 6x6 post? Thanks. I am thinking to cut 4 pieces of 1" x 4" wood to raise my sofa so that the robot cleaner can go under .

2 passes for a 4x4 but with a 2" depth cut, you won't make it through a 6x6

Not in 1 cut. You have to rotate the post. This is a big plus for the 10".
I have the Kobalt version of this and I use a lot for trim and smaller dimensional lumber. Great little saw but for sure if you are going to use anything more than a 2x6 it will be a challenge.

WROCKY AND OICURMT: Thanks and upvote for your prompt and helpful reply. I am thinking to cut 4 pieces of 2" x 4" so that the robot cleaner can go under it.

I believe Lowes/Rona has a Kobalt 10in mitre saw that usually goes on sale for $99. Might work for those who's looking for bigger blade.

I don't think it is strong enough for 4x4 or 6x6. You be better off with 10" or 12" saw

is this a good tool to have for occasional use or a circular saw is better?
if you don't have a circular saw and is considering only one or the other, get the circular saw. It is much more versatile.

I have a 10” Hitachi, and no you can’t cut a 6x6” post even with that, possible in two cuts. At 45 degree angle, I ended up finishing the cut with a hand saw.

This one would be useful for lighter work. Can’t expect much for that price.

A circular saw is far more versatile. You can't cut sheet material with a mitre saw.
Also, look up "speed square with circular saw" on YouTube, and learn how to use the two together to get perfect 90 degree cuts.

Depends what you use it for.
I rarely use my circular saw…just if I’m cutting plywood or something.

But I’ve used my mitre saw for lots of hardwood flooring and framing jobs.

I reno my whole house using the Lowe's version and a table saw. It will not cut 4x4 but it will slide long enough for those wide engineering wood floor. For DIYer it is a nice thing to have.

Only if you need mobility... But then again I have a 12" and 2x10" (sliding and non-sliding)... Yeah I have problems passing up a good deal. AND I actually thought a bit about buying this 7-1/4".

I would personally not go for anything less than 10" sliding dual bevel with laser or led guide. Rigid make a decent good value one.
If you plan on doing lots of trim, dual bevel is super important to avoid frustration.
Fake, inflated, paid, and other forms of scammy news and reviews run rampant. A world drenched in online deceit, spiraling into oblivion.
