As with many table saws, the included plastic miter gauge isn’t nearly as precise as the fence and so I made angled cuts on a miter saw. If you are hoping to use this saw in lieu of a miter saw, you’ll probably want to invest in a higher-quality third party miter gauge. You can also attach a vacuum to this saw’s dust collection port for easy cleaning.

The design is among the first ones to vary voltage in alignment to the outfitted tool. Its versatility is unmatched. The battery usage can be easily shared as you customize the operation itself. Because of its lightweight and small nature, users can easily move it from one place to another. It also doesn’t require lots of space, which is why it is perfect for home garages and commercial spaces alike.

Blades come in various types and sizes. There are rip blades for cutting along the wood grains, hollow ground blades ideal for various materials, crosscut blades suitable for smooth and precise cuts, and combination blades for that double up as blades for crosscutting and ripping. Depending on what you do the most, it’s necessary to choose the right blade type and size that will get the job done with the most ease.

The roller stand that comes with the DWE7491RS is extremely effective and easy to use. One of my biggest concerns when buying a job site table saw is mobility and ease of set-up for one person. Weighing 90 lbs, saws like these can be a serious lifting hazard for one person. So having a mobile solution that allows a single worker to set this saw up is a hugely important issue for me and many other users.

I only have two minor concerns with this saw but they are so small that this saw still gets a 5 star rating.  DEWALT could step up the game on the dust collection if they offer users an effective way of using the dust port on the blade guard. Maybe they offer an accessory splitter and hose package. My other concern is the plastic parts on the fence where it connects to the table. I suspect those parts could break when they are cold if you remove the fence and toss it in the trailer or back of your truck. Again, these are minor in comparison to the rest of the saw (food for thought on the next design).

This stand is one of the easier stands to set up that I’ve used. To fold the stand up you simply stand the saw up on it’s end. Then the 4 legs fold down by releasing easy to use levers. It takes less than a minute to set the saw up and there are no tools required. The large wheels and comfortable height handle make rolling the saw and stand super easy.

The legs fold easily with an intuitive mechanism that feels well thought out, and the safety attachments stow away within the unit, reducing its form factor and allowing it to be tucked away in a corner when not in use. However, the unit does weigh 90 pounds, so if you’re going to be loading it in and out of a truck bed several times a day or needing to haul it up and down the stairs where the wheels can’t help you, you may want to look at a lighter job site saw that dispenses with the stand.

The shark fin-style riving knife behind the blade keeps cut pieces from binding and causing kickback. The included push stick is useful when using thinner workpieces that don’t allow your hand to be at least 4 inches from the blade. The power button’s flip cover ensures that you only turn the blade on when you mean to, which is a welcome layer of safety.

With a maximum cut depth of 3.125 inches and a 32.5-inch rip capacity, the 10-inch blade of this DeWalt table saw handled all the relatively light-duty board ripping I needed from it, but I also tested it against a variety of plywood and other board sizes to assess its capability. The 15-amp motor is fairly standard for this contractor or job site level of table saw, and none of the boards I threw at it caused it to bind—good news, as binding is at best annoying and at worst dangerous.

DEWALT’s recent release of three new job site table saws is capped off with the all new DWE7491RS. This 10″ job site table saw with roller stand is their premium offering. We recently also reviewed the DWE7480 and DWE7490X which were released with this saw. The DWE7491RS is very similar to the DWE7490X except that it has a larger rip capacity and a much nicer stand.

Smaller, portable table saw models have direct-drive motors that can operate on 120 V power to produce 2 HP. This is enough motor power to take on thinner materials. Table saws with more powerful motors are usually stationary saws that produce between 3 to 5 HP. Table saws with stronger motors rely on a belt drive to transfer the power from the motor to the blade and these operate on 240 V.
