Typically sold for around $600, the DeWalt isn’t exactly cheap, and you can find similar portable table saws for less. DeWalt itself has several other jobsite table saws for lower prices, though they either lack a stand or feature a flimsier one. However, if you value a sturdy stand and the ability to wheel the collapsed unit around, it’s easy to justify the modest extra expense for this saw.

This particular table saw features a high-torque motor of 15-amp, which is suitable for cutting hardwoods as well as the pressure treated timber. This is also aided by a speed of 4800RPM. The tool also features a rack, as well as a pinion telescoping fence rail that creates accurate, meticulous, and smooth fence adjustments. You can flip over the fence to make small and precision rip cuts.

A table saw is only as good as its blades. There are a variety of saw blades with varying diameter, arbor size, number of teeth, kerf size, speed, application, and material. Most common table saws use 10 or 12” saw blades with an average number of teeth at24 to 80. And when it comes to the material used, carbide and carbon steel are the most common however you will also find very strong diamond blades.

The “Work Support / Narrow Ripping Fence” option is a nice addition and one that I have come to enjoy on Dewalt saws.  When used as a support feature it helps keep boards wider than the table top from dipping down when the fence is extended. When used as a narrow rip accessory it provides an extra 2-inches of clearance between the blade and the fence. This helps keep you hand further away from the spinning blade.
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).

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.

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.

Hey all. I just got this saw upgrading from few previous model. I thought this is the best potable table saw. I assembled all and I began adjusting blade squareness. I squared on the left side of blade and thought it’s good but guess what, when I put a square on the other side of the blade it was way out!! I said myself NO WAY! Checked few more times but same result! So I put my 4foot level across the table. OMG! It was a cup towards its middle by almost 1/16″!! WTF!! I just could not believe my eyes!! I am a pro carpenter and long time Dewalt lover but now I am sooooo disappointed what I just saw. I’m gonna write Dewalt and see what they say about it.

Regular table saws usually have powerful motors that can give you of 3 to 5 HP at 240V. Powerful benchtop saws such as these can take larger materials like wooden flooring, logs, and lumber. On the other hand, smaller and more compact table saws have direct-drive motors that run on 120 V power at 2 HP. This kind of saw will work with thinner materials like wooden panels, vinyl, laminates and thin metal sheets.

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.

I’ve had this table saw about a year and have had very good results making precision cuts with the rip fence. Ease of use has been great. Get it out set up and get to making cuts fast. I am not making a daily living with it so I may not notice some short comings that daily users would. Maybe like with hand tools, someone won’t notice the difference between Snap-on or Craftsman wrenches until you make a living with them.
