The Makita LS1016LX Dual Slide Compound Miter with the Jobsite Miter Saw Stand 195083-4 is a great combination for a finish carpenter. Not only does the stand put your saw where you want it, it folds down nearly flat with the saw attached to give you easier mobility(see image below).
As you can see in this first photo, the stand has large 12″ solid rubber wheels and a big rubberized handle to roll it around the site and get the saw where you need it. And it has built-in extensions with a roller on the left extension to help you handle longer stock with ease.
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 either of these problems.
