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.

The DEWALT DWE7491RS is a very good job site table saw. I’d even go so far as to say I think it’s the best overall job site + mobile stand option out there. This is a pretty bold statement considering I’ve been a huge fan of the Bosch saws for years. My assessment is based on the combination of power, quality build, cut capacity, and an effective mobile solution.
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.

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).

A solid, safe table saw is the cornerstone to any efficient job-site or worksite. Dewalt wants to close the gap on a cordless job site by introducing several cordless tools including a brand new table saw. We tested the Dewalt Flexvolt   8-1/4” table saw on our job site and in our shop and were impressed with its portability, versatility, performance and power.

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.
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.

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.

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 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 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.
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.

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.

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.
