WOOD magazine review

Plenty of power and precision

Review Summary

This saw, the DW744, sells with the stand as shown, or without it for about $125 less. We like the saw for its power (electronic feedback maintains blade speed during cuts), precision, and ruggedness. The rack-and-pinion rip fence gives you 24-1/2" rip capacity and lets you fine-tune it with ease; the lock holds the fence solidly in place without deflecting. Its blade guard system proves easy to use and remove/install as needed.
Everything stores on-board when not in use, protected from incidental bumps and blows. Dust collection is good when you hook up a shop vacuum to the 2-1/2" dust port, thanks largely to a blade shroud that channels the dust from the blade to the port. The base is stable when unfolded because the wheels don't touch the ground, but that also makes it more difficult to move by yourself because you either have to scoot it or pick it up. The tabletop is smallest among the four high-end job-site saws we tested, and its standard 3/8x3/4" miter slot lacks a T-slot shape—as a result you can't crosscut boards as wide as you can with the other saws without using an auxiliary sled.

Model 744

Review Summary

I purchased my model 744 seven years ago. I have a small shop in a single car garage so space is limited. The projects built using it are many. From Shop storage, jigs and furniture. I am only limited by my ability to find time for my projects.

Great Saw, it can do a lot more then you think!

Review Summary

I have a small shop area, a single garage. I need tools that can be put away when I am finished for the day. I have had my DeWalt 744 for about three years. Did a lot of research before I bought a new table saw. It has done everything I want from a saw and more. At the time it was the only saw in its class that could handle a full sheet of plywood, cutting it at 24". It has the power to handle hard and soft woods, which is important to me.
The fence has been very relible, giving me a good repeatable cut.
