The first ever brass-geared worm drive table saw was first developed by Skilsaw to meet the growing needs of woodworkers on the go. Call this a sophisticated portable table saw, the Skilsaw Worm Drive Table Saw is the first ever saw that can be set up anywhere and once you are done, it can be folded and packed away. This foldable and compact table saw has made it possible to cut materials faster even in remote construction sites.

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.

They offer a rack and pinion fence system for fast, accurate fence adjustments. Our table saws are lightweight and feature a metal roll cage to ensure they can stand up to a rough jobsite. Tool-free guarding component adjustments make it faster and simpler to adjust as needed. Since the World’s First FLEXVOLT® cordless table saw was introduced, DEWALT has revolutionized the world of cordless construction tools.

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.

Now I am supposed to box it up (an enormously difficult task in itself because how tightly it is packed), somehow pick up a 110lb 4′ x 3′ x 3′ box (with weak cardboard that tears if you use the included handles) on my own to put it into my vehicle, drive to the nearest store (an hour round trip), somehow get a 110lb 4′ x 3′ x 3′ box out of the vehicle, lug it into the store, wait in line to return it, then presumably wait while another one is shipped to me (the local store has none of these in stock).

The first problem I had was trying to outfit some sort of “Y” and hose to tee off my main dust port and attach to the upper one (2-1/2″ to 1-1/4″ “Y’s” are not that common). Then, if the smaller hose on top doesn’t fall to the side, it interferes with the wood you’re trying to cut. After talking to the product manager it sounds like this detail evolved in Europe and found it’s way here. I’ve basically abandoned the upper port and just use the lower one. Cool idea, but it needs some serious redesign and/or an accessory to help make it easier to hook up.
Upon unboxing, I wasn’t sure how much I cared that the built-in stand for this saw had wheels, but, boy, did I ever use them. If weather rolled in, the saw folded up and rolled to shelter in the garage. This was extremely convenient since I did my cutting in the driveway and stored the saw in the garage overnight. This maneuverability might be less useful to you if you plan to use the saw primarily in your garage where you could build or buy a semi-permanent stand rather than use the fold-up stand of this model. There is also on-board storage for the power cord and the loose parts such as the miter gauge and guards, making it completely self-contained.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The blade is adjustable from 0-45 degrees for a variety of bevel applications. This DeWalt Table Saw has a 15-amp motor for cutting hardwood and even pressure-treated lumber. This will let you make cuts to a depth of 3- 1/8 inches at 90 degrees and 2 – ¼ inches at 45 degrees. Other important features include a coated table surface and a metal roll cage to protect the tool. This weighs 45 pounds and therefore it is easy to lift and take to your workspace or at the worksite.

The Dewalt Cordless 8-1/4” Table Saw power switch is located on the front, lower left area of the saw and has a large red stop switch that can also be accessed easily with your knee. The power switch is electronic and the saw operator now has to push a green “on” button as opposed to pulling on the “red” power lever as was the case with older models.  The power switch also has a flip over safety cover that can be secured with a pad lock. The padlock hole diameter requires a ¼” maximum diameter padlock

There’s not doubt that many are finding issues with these saws. However, a bit of perspective is likely in order. These are not stationary saws, never will be as no one wants to move around a 500lb beast from job to job. There are thousands and thousands of these on job sites and guys are making a living with them. If we need really precise cuts in the field we either use a track saw or we bring the piece back to the shop. I’m with you…it would be great to have precision in the field…but it’s all a trade off…money and weight. We’ve had great luck from these saws and we use them daily.

Let me start by saying thank you for all of the in depth reviews you provide all of us. I find them extremely useful when making new purchases. Regarding the power adapter issue with the 60v table saw, I own the Dewalt DCV581H 18v/20V MAX Cordless/Corded Wet-Dry Vacuum and it does not require a special adapter that costs over $100, like the FlexVolt Miter Saws. Seems like the 60v tablesaw or the 120v miter saw could simply come with a cord, just like the vacuum.

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.
