The Makita 195083-4 Miter Saw Stand is quite a piece of equipment. It’s sturdy, well made and versatile. It has adjustments for five height positions, folds and unfolds in seconds with its spring-loaded mechanism and has an extra large platform base for additional workspace.
It’s easy to move around the job site, with the big rubberized handle and 12″ solid rubber wheels. And that’s a good thing, especially since this stand is no light duty, light-weight model: it weighs in at a solid 90 pounds.
And that’s also a good thing because you want solid, stable and lots of support for your saw. You don’t want flexing in the stand when you’re cutting compound miters in crown molding!
Speaking of crown molding, this baby has support extensions that will extend out an additional 9″ with help from the feed roller. Take it from this reviewer, you don’t want to be fighting the weight and flex of an 8′ piece of lumber when you need an accurate cut!
Overall, the Makita 195083-4 Miter Saw Stand is an extremely well engineered portable work station and built with typical Makita durability. It works with both the LS1016L 10″ Slide Compound Miter and its 12″ brother, the LS1216L.
Having read user reviews of this stand and a couple others made to go with high-end contractor miter saws, the Makita stands out. One of the others earned complaints because the wheels are so small, it tips over when it’s being pulled around a job site. The other comes with pneumatic tires that are prone to puncturing with all the loose nails in a construction area.
And one was deemed too light weight and flimsy for the heavy saw being put on it. The Makita 195083-4 doesn’t have any of these problems.
