i need portable


I'm looking for a better than homeowner grade power mitre saw that I can easily transport. The largest stock I'd have to cut is a 2 x 6" at a 90 degree angle. It's mostly for trim work on the site. Bulk is bad here as I'm an apartment owner and only have a car for now, but I'm against homeowner quality. Any idea's?

Ease of transport is relative. I move my dewalt 718 and 723 all of the time.

Which ever miter saw you get, invest or make yourself a stand.

True, True, True
I have a cohort on another forum who regards himself as a toolwhore.
He is the lead for a company that does a lot of both remodeling, repairs, and even a lot of miscellaneous handyman repairs.

His dilemma is that while he loves his tools, he also loves his Miata.
These pics are no joke this is what he carries everyday. I give him a big hurrah because while foolish I once carried 4 passengers in a Datsun 1600 roadster

The last Pic is of the "Lumber Car" which is just off the WEB as an extreme example of what NOT to do

On the pic taken from the drivers side can be seen a Workmate 225. I would recommend it, or a similar stand, to DIY because he could use it for other of things besides as a Miter saw stand.

I have to cringe and shake my head when I see in a remodeler working in a clients garage with a Miter Saw on the Floor and a few times even with a small Makita Table Saw on the Floor.

You're right I looked and couldn't find a trail.

I didn't see the original but when I see an obvious Spam, I click on the Red Bullet in the lower LH corner to report the Post.

Nat, has been good at booting spammers and deleting their posts.

The Moderator will also delete an individual post if it links to another forum. It happened to me, so I won't do it again.

Although I think he also deleted a post that had a few good links in it, to a 12v sealed battery, and to a bunch of those car-jumper battery packs, which answered the OP's question. Oh well!
