Precise Miter and Bevel Cuts
The LS1016 has an exclusive 4-3/4-inch sliding fence system, with four sliding fences featuring upper and lower fence adjustments for more precise miter and bevel cuts in a variety of cutting applications. The saw miters 0 to 52 degrees left and 0 to 60 degrees right, with positive stops at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6, and 45 degrees (left and right). The dual rear-handle bevel lock is easily accessible with adjustments from 0 to 45 degrees (left and right), with positive stops at 22.5, 33.9, and 45 degrees (left and right).
Precise adjustments are made easy with dual front bevel scales for improved visibility. The easy one-touch (push in & turn) miter lock system is designed for accurate adjustments and increased efficiency.
Ergonomic and Compact Design
In addition to the large cutting capacity, power, and accuracy, the LS1016 offers a range of convenient and ease-of-use features. The LS1016 has less weight and the most compact design in its class, so it's portable and easily transported. In addition, the patented 4-Steel Rail Sliding System requires 2-inches less rear space than competing dual sliding miter saws. The see-through blade guard system provides greater visibility of blade and line of cut and has a one-step blade change process for increased efficiency. The rubberized horizontal D-handle design has an ergonomic fit for added comfort, and the large trigger switch is designed for easy operation.
15 AMP Power for Smoother, Higher-Quality Cutting
The LS1016 has a 15 amp direct-drive gearbox motor that never slips, bogs down, or requires maintenance like belt-driven saws. The soft-start feature delivers smoother start-ups, and the electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load for smoother, higher-quality cutting.
Best in Class for a Range of Applications
The LS1016 is engineered for finish work, remodeling, trim work, and furniture making. It is ideal for a broad range of trades, including finish carpenters, professional woodworkers, case and base installers, cabinet installers, cabinet manufacturers, closet installers, decking and flooring applications, siding installers, stair installers, and general contractors seeking a superior 10-inch dual slide compound miter saw for the jobsite or on the benchtop. The LS1016 is just another example of Makita's commitment to innovative technology and best-in-class engineering.
