Coming in on the small side, this Ryobi ZRTS1344L 10-Inch Compound Miter Saw with Laser is no lightweight in the power arena. Designed to provide easy handling with accurate cuts, this particular model is factory-reconditioned for a price discount, but still comes with the great backing of the Ryobi name and can be expected to perform as good as new. The carbide tipped 10-inch blade provides a clean, smooth cut with accurate measurements and light weight ease.

Miter Saw Product Description
The Ryobi ZRTS1344L 10-Inch compound miter saw provides a laser guide which allows for the easiest, most hassle-free cutting jobs. The dual view bevel scale makes it easy to see the cut from either side, while the spindle lock and single wrench blade changing provides safe and easy blade replacement options. A 14 Amp motor, with 120 volts and an electric brake allows the carbide tipped blade to stop in seconds, maintaining easy efficiency and excellent durability. Coming in at only 27 pounds, this corded electric Ryobi miter saw is easily portable for job site transportation, but also sits nicely in a dedicated workshop. The factory reconditioned product is in like new condition. Like most saws, it is reported to make a bit of a mess, even when using the dust bag, but that is quite typical and does not affect the quality of the cuts in any way.
Product Reviews from Real People
“I would not have known that this was a recycled tool. It looks like its out of the box. It works perfectly and since i got it 6 months ago I have more then 100 cuts.” By dominic lucente
“This reconditioned saw had virtually no visible evidence of prior use. It is solid and seems to be adequately powerful for occasional hobby use. The dust collector doesn’t work at all….maybe a tenth of the sawdust lands in the bag, the rest goes on the floor. The laser is a nice feature and seems accurate. It runs on AAA batteries which might turn into a pain. I haven’t tried any complex angled cuts, but there are detents for what appear to be the commonly used angles. I would recommend this saw for home use at a very reasonable price.” By Hawkeye
“Tool did not even look used. Used it to cut the crown molding in master bedroom, cut like I expected. Will use it to cut crown molding on the main floor. This is a lighter tool for those supper carpenters, you won’t like this tool, but for DIY guy like me gets it done.” By Jeffrey L.
“I’m new to woodworking, so getting a miter saw at a reasonable price with a reputable brand were my only requirements. I would have loved to have given it 5 stars! Except after several cuts, my table and deck area was covered in saw dust and the catch-bag had a tiny corner of saw dust collected. So bear that in mind when you’re cutting that most likely it’ll make a mess. But as for miter cuts, it’s very easy to adjust and stays in its angled position when changed. I am overall very pleased with my product for its price. Now I’ll go use my cheap broom and sweep up saw dust…” By Swann
“Looks and works like new. Extremely satisfied with it. I have purchased several reconditioned tools and computers with very good results.” By L. Morgan “WasabiS”
For an affordable laser-equipped compound miter saw, this little Ryobi ZRTS1344L 10-Inch Compound Miter Saw with Laser is certainly worth considering. Though it’s not likely what a professional cabinet maker would buy, for the price it is an excellent piece of equipment for the hobbyist or at home woodshop worker.

The TS1344L would be a great value as a gift for a new home improvement hobbyist who is building working experience with tools and projects. I don’t see a refurbished miter saw of this size lasting with or satisfying a contractor crew for anything more than a back up just in case your workhorse saws go out. It could work well though, for a one man contractor who does mostly small jobs outside. Read more here…
