Yes, this table saw is certainly quality. However, if it’s a good fit for you, that’s still to be answered. You’ll get to know the answer to this question after reading the entire review.
So, read on to know more.
Dewalt DWE7491RS Review
The table saw comes from a renowned brand like Dewalt is a fact good enough to excite you. Regarding its features, this one comes with a 15-amp motor. The motor is of good quality and is pretty powerful as well.
The cutting depth of the table saw is 3.125 inches, which is good. When it comes to construction of the body, this one is rated highly, as very high-quality materials have been used in it.
The fence of the table saw is pretty accurate, and you can put your trust in it blindly. However, the plastic miter gauge it comes with doesn't generate that much trust, and should only be used when you don’t have a miter saw.
Thanks to the wheels on its body, this thing is extremely portable. However, if you use a truck to carry it, its weight might be an issue.
The price is not very high and should be affordable.
When it comes to performance, this one excels. As you can see in the product description, the maximum cut depth of this thing is 3.125 inches. That means even if you are working with a thick hardwood, this machine won’t have much difficulties going through it.
What about light-duty tasks?
Well, when it comes to working with light-duty tasks such as board ripping, this one is up to the task. You’ll have a great time as this thing operates with both accuracy and efficiency.
However, if you intend to work with deck boards that are really long, you’d better purchase a rolling stand. The stand will help you to stabilize the deck boards.
The machine comes with a 15-amp motor. I’d say that the motor is quite powerful. At least, no project of yours will face any kind of difficulties due to a lack of sufficient power. As it is able to generate the necessary power, the speed of the device is, 4800 RPM, there can be no complaint with the motor.
Construction of the Machine:
When you purchase this one, you’ll have a lot of bucks. So, it’s better to ensure before investing that the machine is worth those bucks that you earned with your hard work and sweat.
Now, when you look at this thing, you’ll instantly realize that this one is now an ordinary table saw. This thing looks sturdy and is sturdy.
You’ll see that all the parts exude quality, and you won’t even have to touch them to realize how well-made they are.
And as a unit, they are great as well. So, even if you use the table saw pretty regularly, you won’t face many issues with it.
I’d say the maintenance effort will be very minimum since this beast is unlikely to bother you with petty issues.
Overall, the design of the table saw is user-friendly. You’ll see that there’s a rack that’s already built into the machine. There will also be a fence system which is top-notch. It can guide boards extremely accurately. So, you can trust the fence for your projects easily.
There’s also a plastic miter gauge in the unit. However, if you’ve ever used the table saw before, you’ll know it very well that when it comes to accuracy, plastic miter gauge is no match to the fence.
So, if you intend to use this table saw for the tasks meant for the miter saw, I’d suggest you get a different product. That’s because this plastic miter gauge won’t do the job well.
Though I never care much about the portability of a table saw, but this one had me surprised. It comes with wheels on the stand, which makes it incredibly easy to move.
So, if you are working outside the house, and there’s sudden rain, you can take this inside at once.
Another thing that I like is the fact that the fence can be retracted, allowing you to save space.
But keep in mind that this thing weighs no less than 90 pounds. So, if you take this to the workplace every day with your truck, and you have to do the unloading by yourself, that can be really tough for you.
The table saw also comes with a manual to teach you how to use the machine properly.
However, I’m not very pleased with the manual.
Some instructions I found vague and will have you look back and forth at the pages.
Also, they didn’t mention the fact that a dead blow hammer will be required to mate different sections of the stand together.
Dust Collection Port:
There’s a collection port that you can easily hook up with a vacuum. That way, your workplace will remain clean and dust-free.
And that’s an important thing as unclean workplace reduces productivity significantly.
Table saws are expensive. You can’t change the fact. However, when compared to other table saws on the market, this one doesn’t seem very expensive. This table saw should be within your budget.
So, I think the price of the product is alright.
