The Makita 8-1/2” 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, “dead-on” accurate cuts. At 90° the LS0815F has 12” crosscutting capacity, with 8-1/2” capacity at 45° (miter). The saw miters 0° to 50° left and 0 to 60° right, with positive stops at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 31.6°, 45°, and 50° (left and right), and an additional stop at 60° (right). The dual rear handle bevel lock is easily accessible and adjusts 0°- 48° (left) and 0°- 5° (right) with positive stops at 0° and 45° (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.
The LS0815F is part of Makita’s expanding line-up of best-in-class miter saws that deliver capacity, accuracy, and portability for a range of cutting applications. It is ideal for baseboard and crown molding installation, finish carpentry, cabinet and furniture making, wood floor installation, deck building, general construction, and more.
