How Miter Saw Weight Affect to User Experience?

Outdoor Workers

It is very important to know that the miter saw weight affects the user experience. Imagine if you are an outdoor worker and need to carry more weight every day will be a huge problem. Sometimes that will be too much for the work. You can use another optional tool or a less-weight miter saw for your task easily. Hence think twice about the miter saw weight if you are an outdoor worker.

Mostly, if you are an outdoor worker, you also have to carry a portable miter saw station. It is also with considerable weight. So it is better to select a single side miter saw for your task. It is the safest and most secure step for both user and tool when it is carried here and there.

Indoor Workers

If you are working indoors in a permanent workshop, it is great to have the more weight miter saw with suitable spacing. Because those are always with high performance and you do not need to move the miter saw here and there, after you place it on the right place. But make sure to create a sufficient strong table or station for that.

What is the Most Weight Miter Saw?

The most weight miter saw is a dual bevel miter saw. Here it is Makita XSL06PT 18V x2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless. Due to the cordless, it can use anywhere. But it is more weight. As well as you will need to transport the portable stand with this. But it is a great solution for the power supply problems.

The lightest miter saws are miter saw boxes. Those come with separate boxes and saw blades. So it can carry easily to the site. But some miter saw boxes are not able to use on the site because they require proper support. CRAFTSMAN (CMHT20800) will be one of those. It is made with a metal plate. So difficult to transport and it required proper support.

Are More Weight Miter Saws Worth It?

Normally, a more weight miter saw is really worth it although it is expensive. Most of the weight miter saws are dual bevel miter saws. dual bevel miter saws can cut both left and right bevel and slide also. So it can use for any tasks that we expect from the miter saw. So it is a great investment for the indoor workshops.

But outdoor workshops have so many options instead of the dual bevel miter saw. If you can carry it without considering its weight you can buy it. But outside can be dangerous. If you are not able to place it properly, it will damage it by falling down or hitting something. Hence it will be a risk to your money. I recommend you to buy another type of miter saw for the outdoor projects.
