The 7 Best Cordless Miter Saws
This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in January of 2019. If you need to use a miter saw at varied and, sometimes, awkward job sites, cordless is the way to go. But as any professional contractor can tell you, that often comes with a drop-off in power compared to mains-operated tools, We did our best to identify models that mitigate this to provide a selection capable of accurate crosscuts at your selected angle on a variety of stock. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Batteries are great when you don't have access to an outlet, but when you do, it is generally going to be the best option when using a tool that requires a lot of power. That's why we included the DeWalt DHS790AT2 , which can actually run on batteries or be plugged in. Since cordless miter saws are often transported back and forth to job sites and carried from room to room, we wanted to include some very lightweight models, like the 17-pound Ryobi One+ P551 and 14-pound Makita XSL05Z. For those who need extended run times, the Milwaukee 2733-21 M18 Fuel is a suitable choice, but if you need to combine unrivaled power with an all-day charge, the DeWalt DHS790AT2 and Makita XSL06PT should be your go-to models, since they both run on two batteries.
