MSUV

MSUV stands for Miter Saw Utility Vehicle. Cute name, but a great miter saw stand at a great price. This has been $149 lately. I got one last time it was $99 and put my Delta 12" miter saw on it. I had to drill some holes to mount it because the mounting holes were not right. This is very easy to set up and take down, very mobile and very stable. I highly recommend it for anyone who needs a mobile miter saw stand.

Looked online and it's still listing at $149.99. Any more details?

Did you try in the store?

I got this too last time around for $99 and put my Dewalt 12" on it and it great. Wheels up and down stairs easily! Better then carrying that saw around!<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0>

Oops - I should have said B&M.

I got this for Christmas, as I'm re-building an entire house. My thought was, 'hey this will bea easy to haul back and forth to the job site', but that wasn't too accurate. The stand is very heavy and bulky (especially with a saw attached), so it's been a big pain in the butt to haul back and forth. To be fair, I do have to haul it up steps and through a doorway which sin't very easy. The worst part though is lifting it in and out of the truck. It's very heavy and not the easiest to do by yourself, especially at the end of the day when you're tired.

For a standard job site, or someone who will just be using it around the house, its great and very versatile. If you're going to be constantly hauling it around, and will have to haul it up a lot of stairs, through small doorways etc, it may be better just to get a light aluminum stand that folds up.

Thanks and green to you!!

Got one of these this morning and used a 10% of coupon printed from SD. No problems using coupon.

Tool area manager didn't even know the cart was going to be marked down until he arrived at work. Plenty in stock at Central MD store.

I got one of these about a year and a half ago. It makes a great workspace that is easy to setup when doing projects inside and outside of the house. I would have to agree that it is quite heavy to get in and out of a truck by yourself.

Green for you!!<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0> I've been debating the last couple of weeks on which stand to get. Down to this & the Dewalt.

Here's a nice little review that has a comparison chart.

Could you provide a link for the coupon?

I got one last time around and just love it. Easy to set-up and take down and wheels around the job site nicely on the big wheels. Yes it is well built for years of service so it is heavy but is managable.

Thanks for the nice review site. I'v been considering the Dewalt for over a year now and still think it's my choice at this point with the longer support and stops. Besides, my Dewalt saw weighs in at 53 pounds by itself and the Ridgid would add 78 pounds to it and make it hard on my old back to load in/out of the truck. After reading the review you provided, I'm even more convinced I'd appreciate the ability to slide the saw along the track. The Dewalt stand is $178 at Amazon and I'd appreciate any tips on a deal better than that. I do seem to recall some negative reviews on the Dewalt at Amazon when I was looking at it a year ago or so (some part tended to break?), but the recent Amazon reviews look good.

Sorry i not familar with how to link, but if you visit the slickdeals.net pages and in the forum area do a search for Home Depot coupon...you should have no problem.

I print all my coupons out on "somewhat" gloss paper that has a little thickness to it. Always print in color and use the color laser at work. Have had no problems and recently used the 20% off for the 10" Contractor table saw....saved 20% off $550.00.

Good luck.

There is a $25 mail in rebate at HD for the Dewalt DW723.

My Dad has this MSUV for about a year and it's great. Yea, it's heavy but so is the saw bolted on it so you're gonna need 2 people even if the msuv was 10lbs lighter. I've loaded my Dad's saw in the back of my truck a couple of times with the help of my 110lbs girlfriend. So you need 1 and a half people <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>

I got in on the Hitachi miter saw deal at Amazon so now I'm off to HD to get this MSUV. Great deal for $99.

Thanks Op. Green!

Picked one up. Green & thanks OP. Sure beats kneeling to cut stuff when you're out of the garage!

You can also download the $25 MIR for the Dewalt miter saw stand direct from the dewalt website...

Just made the same purchase. Great deal with the 10% coupon!

Oh yeah, Lowe's has a $25 Lowe's GC mail in also.

Could anyone link this for me. I can't seem to find it. Thanx.

I can't find it at dewalt.com either. However, I did notice that Amazon has a $20 discount promotion code that is valid with this stand (use code SAVEPWERHAND), bringing the cost down to $157.94, shipped, for the Dewalt DW723 stand. That's before the $25 gift card being taken into account.

Anyone know if Lowe's or HomeDepot will PM Amazon.com??

bluestraw said: [Q]Anyone know if Lowe's or HomeDepot will PM Amazon.com??

usually, just print out screen shot including tax and shipping

I'm not sure if I understand the purpose of this. Amazon ships for free and you don't have to pay sales tax. I wouldn't think that Home Depot would take the hit on the sales tax. I saw the Dewalt stand at a Home Depot in NorCal today marked at $199, fwiw.

There is also a $25 HD GC on this purchase. Mail in that is.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif" border=0>

Yeah, I saw that at HD today also, but that is no better than the Amazon one.

The Ridgid MSUV is in today's flyer for $99 "on sale".

Has anybody that owns this tried any other equipment on it? I'm going to get one for my 12" Miter Saw, and was thinking about getting a second one for my 13" planer (mounted sideways so rollers act as infeed/outfeed), realizing that I'll probably have to drill holes for it.


I just bought this stand for a Bosch 12" miter saw and overall I am very pleased with it. The only problem I can see mounting a planer is the roller height will probably not adjust low enough. Most miter saw decks are about 3" above the base, while planers are much closer to the mounting surface. If you build your own base to raise it up a few inches then this should work.

Also note that because the MS-UV is on wheels it is prone to movement. Since I have a sliding miter, I would like the MS-UV to be a little more stable in this respect, but the ability to wheel this monster saw around effortlessly more than makes up for it. However, the stability may not be an issue with a planer as forces would generally be along the longitude of the stand.

I would say to pick one up and try it out. The MS-UV for $99 is a steal IMHO and HD does not have sales like this very often. I'm sure you could return it if you were not satisfied.

It's got to have locking wheels. Otherwise, you would be all over the place when cutting.

Take a look at the stand, dude. It's not going anywhere.

I did look, dude, and you can't tell anything from that picture. It may say a 1000 words, but it's not telling me it's not going to move.

Dude, if you really think that stand is going to move then chock the wheels. But don't be a moron and post nonsense about equipment you don't own and know very little about.

It only has 2 wheels, doesn't move at all. I've had it for awhile with a 12" Dewalt on it with no problems! (loves 4X4's and 2X6's) Dude, if you want to see it again: DUDE <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0>
