Makita Announces New 12” 4-Rail Miter Saw Model LS1216L
Makita's 10” 4-rail saw has been out for a while now, and receives lots of praise around the internet so it comes at no surprise that Makita has moved up to next logical step.
The new LS1216L is built off of the same design as the 10” model, so many of the features are the same. The biggest difference is of coarse the added cutting capacity the 12” version offers. The 4-rail design offers a more compact footprint without the loss of any cutting capacity; this allows the saw to cut 15” material at 90 degrees. Even more impressive is the saws ability to cut 8” crown and 6 1/2” baseboard vertically nested.
If you liked the LS1016L but found you needed more cutting capacity you might want to upgrade to the LS1216L. Model LS1216LX is also available which includes Makita's Jobsite Miter Saw Stand. MSRP for the LS1216L is $679
