DeWalt DWE7480XA Table Saw. Yet another DeWalt Triumph!

DeWalt are probably the most widely used manufacturer when people think about table saws. For years they have produced quality and reliable tools and they have certainly lived up to the proud name they boast when it comes to the DeWalt DWE7480XA table saw.

Finding the correct saw that suits the application you are using it for can seem like a tedious task. Scrolling through website after website to get the simplest of information. I found a dedicated website the sharp cut, they have a specific review for this saw.

Design

As you would expect from DeWalt, the main colours are yellow and black. The DeWalt DWE7480XA table saw is well built and although some of the casing is made of plastic, this is pretty common place within today’s market. The switches and safety gear is strategically placed. They have designed this product with the user in mind.

Good Vs. Bad

The Good:

This table saw is very good value for money, it is in the mid-range for price but performs much better than some of the more expensive saws I have experienced in the past.

All of the safety features are simple and easy to adapt to your own personal preference, obviously very important when using any kind of saw.

The DeWalt DWE7480XA table saw is very easy to move from site to site due to its light, relatively small size which comes in handy of you need to use it in different locations. The fact the saw is small it makes storing it anywhere doesn’t take up too much room.

The Bad:

The saw kicks out a lot of dust but doesn’t collect where a normal saw would, it seems to spray a fair distance however by simply attaching a household style hoover to the dedicated port on the dust tray the problem is sorted. Another small problem I found is that the DeWalt DWE7480XA table saw seems to be very noisy but not excessive enough to cause anyone a problem.

Changing the position of the “riving knife” for non-through cuts can be a bit of an arduous task, although with practise this exercise soon becomes a normal routine.

Overview

This a well-priced, high quality tool that surpasses my expectations. Seems to cut through all types of timber with no problems. If it is a heavy duty saw that you require this probably wouldn’t live up to the job. On the other hand, if you are looking for a mid-range, portable yet powerful saw then this would be a good choice
