Buyer’s Feedback on the DEWALT and Stand
One common thing you will discover when viewing the reviews for this saw is that everyone seems to love it. It has more than 400 reviews and an average rating of 4.7-stars. Most owners say that it pushes the limits in every way and sets a higher standard for table saws. They love the mobility of it, the heavy-duty construction of it, and the overall quality of the cuts it makes. Most say that assembly is easy and that it was already aligned when they took it out of the box. The controls are easy to use and most feedback that once the fence is locked into place, it does not move at all. This helps you to make sure your cuts are always straight and it is very helpful when cutting long strips of wood. Many owners even like using the guard on this table saw; even those who have not liked using the guard on other saws that they have worked with.
However, it does have the same issue that many other table saws have; a miter gauge that some users feel is sloppy. There are people who say you are better off to get an aftermarket gauge, but luckily this does not seem to be as big of an issue with this saw as it is with some of the other available table saws. It is also a little questionable as to whether the instructions are clear or vague. There are owners who say that they are great and others who say that they were disappointed by the instructions on assembly and use. There are some reviewers who say that the rolling stand is too large for small workshop spaces.
Our Opinion of the DEWALT DWE7491RS
As you look at this table saw, one thing comes to mind; power. It has the power to get any job done that you feel needs to be done. It is ideal for daily professional carpenters, but it is also a great saw for novice woodworkers who are trying to perfect their newest hobby. It is a versatile tool that can perform very well in every way. Admittedly, it is not as compact as some saws, but considering its abilities, most people will not feel this is a bad thing. If it were smaller, it wouldn’t be able to rip the long strips that it can. The rolling stand could be an issue for small shops and it could be a little bulky if you want to store it when not in use, but overall, it is just too nice a saw for that to be a major downfall for it. It simply must be mentioned because if you have a small space, you may have issues with its size. We personally think this is a saw that lives up to the reputation that DEWALT has created for itself and therefore, worth considering if you want a table saw that can go where you want it to go.
