The ability to miter, bevel, crosscut wide material, make compound cuts, and even plow dadoes makes the 10-in. sliding compound-miter saw a perfect fit for many shops. But some saws achieve the compromise between performance and price better than others. Andy Beasley reviews six 10-in. sliders currently on the market, focusing on smoothness, accuracy, power, and ease of use.

Brands tested are the Bosch 4410LChicago Electric 90891Hitachi C10FSHMakita LS1013LMetabo KGS 303, and Milwaukee 6497-6.
