What is the optimal warranty period for sliding compound miter saws?

Based on our experience, we think that a decent sliding compound miter saws should have at least a two-year warranty.

Over the last decade, online shopping become absolutely safe. If needed, all the sliding compound miter saws bought at the marketplace can be refunded or replaced. Considering that, you should not be afraid about being deceived.

Whether the lifetime warranty for a sliding compound miter saws is useful?

Most manufacturer offer various warranty terms depending on the price of a sliding compound miter saws. Some brands have expensive models with a lifetime warranty, while the others only offer one-year or two-year protection. The cheapest sliding compound miter saws on the market may not have the warranty at all. If you are afraid that the sliding compound miter saws may break down, pick a model with the five-year warranty period. Lifetime warranty is usually useless.
