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.

The power switch is a bit finicky.  I noticed this at their media event and also when using the saw.  A quick press of the on button does not work and it seems that you have to press the button for a few seconds.  Additionally, you need to push this button straight on and not at an angle to work.  My guess is That Dewalt will work this out in time.

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.

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).

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.

Prior to deploying the power loss reset feature there had been many job site horror stories of unattended table saws starting up upon power restoration.  Sometimes this restart caused material damage or personal injury.   This usually happened when the saw operator did not think to turn off the tool before walking away to go restore power. In the meantime, other people have leaned on, temporarily placed tools or even building materials on the saw, a blade spinning disaster waiting to happen.
