WOOD magazine review

Job-site saw rips wide, stands firm

Review Summary

The biggest downfall of job-site/benchtop tablesaws has been the limitation of about 18–24" rip capacity. DeWalt’s new DWE7491RS 10" saw can rip a whopping 32-1/2", and without adding bulk to the unit. (Telescoping fence rails on a rack-and-pinion adjuster make this possible.) You’ll really appreciate that extra capacity when ripping sheet goods. And power was no issue when I ripped even 2"-thick oak and pressure-treated pine.
The splayed-leg stand keeps the saw stable throughout cuts, though the plastic feet scooted a bit on a dusty, polished-concrete floor. Still, I like the fold-up stand for portability; and even though the unit weighs 90 lbs, I could easily load it in my truck by myself. It breaks down easily and stores compactly against a wall (see photo). The DWE7491RS comes with a miter gauge and three-piece blade guard—which works nicely—that store onboard, along with the blade wrenches and rip fence. Despite being housed in an open base, a shroud around the blade helps channel nearly all the dust into a 2-1/2" port for a shop vacuum to suck up. —Tested by Dave Fish for WOOD Magazine
