Question: Leaking Fluid
My DeWalt dw704 miter saw is leaking fluid. I didn't think there was any oil in it.
Reply: Leaking Fluid
Your DeWalt mitersaw doesn't have any oil in it but it does have grease in the gearbox. If the saw becomes very hot, either from use or from sitting in the sun, the grease can breakdown and become liquid. Because the saw was not built to have oil in it, there are no gaskets and seals to contain it and the liquefied grease leaks out of the saw. To repair you will need to disassemble the gearbox. Clean out the remainder of the grease. Then repack the gearbox with fresh grease and reassemble.
The grease is part #790206-00 and is available from http://ereplacementparts.com.
Good luck with your repair!
