DEWALT DWE7480XA Features
In terms of reasons why you should invest in this product, the DEWALT DWE7480XA offers a range of unique features that are designed to make your life easier and table wood cutting much more effective. We’ve taken a look at some of the product’s biggest features.
Compact Size – There’s no more appropriate place to start when it comes to the features of the DEWALT DWE7480XA than that aforementioned compact size of the product. You’ll find that many table saws claim to offer a compact form factor, but it’s often more the case that they’re not actually that compact.
With that taken into consideration, we can definitely confirm that this is a compact table saw. Just one look at the table saw and you can tell that it’s designed to be portable. What’s more, said portability is largely helped by the table saw’s folding stand. That stand is designed to fold away when you’re not using it and save you some space.
24” Rip Capacity – Just because this table saw is considerably more compact than other alternatives in our table saw reviews, that doesn’t mean it compromises in terms of flexibility. You should comfortably find that the included 24” of rip capacity that comes as part of this product cuts a variety of larger shelving and trim materials. That’s particularly good news if you plan on using your table saw to cut a variety of different materials and sizes of material. In all, we find that it offers tradesmen a good level of flexibility where needed.
Heavy Duty Stand – An often overlooked aspect when it comes to buying a table saw is the stand. You might not be aware of that fact, but a table saw needs a good sturdy stand to support it, if you want to use the table saw safely and effectively that is. With that in mind, you can’t go too far wrong with the heavy duty stand that’s included as part of this DEWALT table saw. Plus, just because this is a heavy duty stand, that doesn’t mean it will take up an awful lot of space, as aforementioned, it completely folds away.
DEWALT DWE7480XA pros:
- Unlike many other “compact table saws” on the market, we can safely say that this table saw definitely is compact. That’s largely supported by the minimal form factor of the product, which is coupled with folding legs for increased portability.
- Included guarding system shows pretty clearly that this is a product designed to provide safety. For beginners, table saws can be pretty complicated to use and there’s always that risk of injury. With that taken into consideration, the included safety features should give you that peace of mind you need here.
- Also available as an option without a stand, meaning if you don’t need the stand offered by the table saw, you can choose to purchase it without. This should save you some money if you already have a stand. Still, we’d recommend investing in the heavy duty stand that is available for only a small amount more.
DEWALT DWE7480XA Cons:
- If you’ve owned a DEWALT table saw in the past, you’ll likely be aware of the fact that they tend to include a number of accessories for use with your table saw. However, we found that those accessories hadn’t be included in this package.
What do other customers say about the product?
It certainly seems apparent that customers like the fact that you can purchase this particular table saw with or without that aforementioned stand. At the same time, they generally just love the overall quality of the product and the range of features and functions that it offers.
