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.

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.

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.

Blades come in various types and sizes. There are rip blades for cutting along the wood grains, hollow ground blades ideal for various materials, crosscut blades suitable for smooth and precise cuts, and combination blades for that double up as blades for crosscutting and ripping. Depending on what you do the most, it’s necessary to choose the right blade type and size that will get the job done with the most ease.

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.

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.

What is a fence? How important is it in a table saw? It gives you an option for horizontal or vertical adjustments. A good rip fence should be aligned to the blade at all times. Without a fence, everything will be disgusting. Ensure that it is heavy and that it can glide smoothly across the rails. Also, make sure that the locking mechanism is perfect and convenient.

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 DWE7490X is a great table saw that guarantees convenience and flexibility thanks to its scissor stand. It has been exceptionally designed with a stand that makes the job easier when setting it up. Also, it combines portability and power into one very convenient table saw. Unfortunately, some will find the 87 pounds a bit of a stretch in terms of carrying it around.

Further testing showed that the red “Stop” lever was the cause, not the power switch.  After turning on the saw, the red stop lever would drop too hard onto the stop button and turn the saw off.   After conferring with the product manager at Dewalt, it was determined that the red stop lever spring force was too high.  The units we tested was from a “manufacturing sample lot.”  MSL’s are the first time the plant does a big run of the product and Dewalt then has time to refine and make adjustments, before the tool goes to production.
