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.

At the Dewalt media event I inquired whether an accessory power cord was in the making, so users could plug into a power outlet for AC current.  Having both options would be nice. The dual option would be handy on construction sites with no power.  On these sites contractors often compete with extension cords for a generator outlet.  Having a cordless option for these situations would be amazing, later on, when the house has power, you could plug in.

The built-in stand sets this saw apart from competitors since it is actually quite stable out of the box and doesn’t require a custom stand or supports to combat vibration, which are often necessary with cheaper and lighter units. DeWalt sells a nearly identical saw with a less robust stand, and after viewing it in a big box store, I was glad to have this one.

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.

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.

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.
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.

About the setbacks, only a few users have cited that the dado blade is hardly accommodated perfectly and that it features a flat-track gauge instead of a T-track, which might not keep the miter gauge appropriately in place. Other than that, this table saw is popular and it enjoys good reviews. So, if you value efficiency and meticulous works, this is the saw you should get.
I tested both saws and found their performance similar, though thanks to the rolling stand, I was more likely to reach for the DeWalt. If you don’t value the stand, the SKILSAW packs a lot of power in a small form and is the preferred job site saw of several local contractors I know. If you’re a weekend warrior like me, you may value the stand enough to spend the extra money on the DeWalt.
There is a variety of table saw accessories to keep in mind. Just some of the most common are table extensions, on and off switches, wheels, onboard storage and dust collection features. Additional blades, wrenches, and tables are also a must. Remember that a table saw set is better than a bare tool because you will end up spending more as you buy accessories piece by piece.

Accessory Storage – DEWALT clearly made an effort to make it easy and convenient to store the accessories including the blade guard. One of my pet peeves on the job site is asking the crew where they put the guard. Typically it gets removed for some cross cutting or dado’s and then never makes it back on the saw. Having a dedicated storage location for the guard makes that much less likely to happen. There’s a place to store the wrench, guard, riving knife, miter gauge, and the anti-kickback knives.

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.

This particular Dewalt table saw is our choice for commercial use. It features a 15-amp motor, which has an amazing speed of 4800 rpm. So, if you’re looking for a saw that incorporates high torque and power, this is one you shouldn’t pass up. The high number of spins in a minute can rip through several types of woods, which is why this model is ideal for different types of applications.

The latest DeWalt Table Saw is a compact 10-inch job site power saw with a number of great features. First of all, it has a rack and pinion telescoping fence which will let you make fence adjustments easily. This saw has a 24-inch rip capacity so you can use this for a variety of materials. It has an onboard storage system so you can carry tools with ease.
On the other hand, the DeWalt Worm Drive Circular Saw is only the circular saw power tool minus any foldable table. This saw is portable, handheld and is lightweight at 13.8 pounds. It may not be a portable table saw but it works great in ripping material up to 2 – ½ inches wide. It is quality made with a durable cast magnesium footplate for a solid cutting platform.

Performance – The DWE7491RS performs very well. The rack and pinion fence rails are the key to this saws accuracy and overall performance. The fence is easy to adjust and stays parallel to the blade. The unique fence design rides on rails at both the front and back of the saw, eliminating the possibility of fence drift. This saw also comes with a miter gauge for cross-cutting. The miter gauge isn’t all that great but it gets the job done.
