Works well - Ear muffs needed!

Purchased from Bunnings Kirrawee approx 2015. Is handy size for a table saw. Accurate and easy to operate. Cons - Is very loud, extraction vacuum a must if working inside, ruler seems to go out of calibration easy for a workshop tool? Show details

The parallel fence is outstanding help !!!

O.K. many table saw's are good. The BIG DIFFERENCE is the fence running on rack and pinion. This is the best !! ...and some more interesting fixtures... It saves so much time. I'm building wooden models and toys..... Absolutely the BEST !!!! Setting the saw first, cutting a small piece of 12mm for example, next piece needed is 19mm, just turn the wheel to 19mm on the scale and it is done !!! Never seen before on any table saw.

Very Happy

Terrific table saw. Very compact, versatile and accurate - so nice to set the gauge to a required size and actually get an accurate result! With these types of tools you only get what you pay for so it's worth paying a little more for good Dewalt quality. It's quite noisy in operation but most saws are very noisy. Can't fault anything else - very happy chappy.

Thing of beauty

What an awesome machine. Had it for almost a year and have used it on several home projects. Cut a 2.4 metre board with only half a mm variance from end to end.... im uncoordinated so trust me that's quite an achievement and it's thanks to this machine. It's pretty loud so if you have neighbours probably best to use it during the day. Would recommended to any home enthusiast - spend the money and buy quality rather than fluffing around with brands that'll never cut straight

Questions & Answers

Why would anyone here complain that it "makes a ton of dust". Really, and other saws somehow cut without producing sawdust? Amazing and, I want one!
Another bloke here reckons the slots aren't parallel. These are factory made tops and mate, you need to learn how to use a table saw. I built a cross cut guide and used the better option of nylon for the runners; it works like a dream; slippery as.
Another says with a straight face I suppose, the saw is noisy. Yeah you get that with table saws, go figure.
I bought mine used (so can't review here) but it is a beautiful saw to use and cuts dead accurate using imo one of t-h-e best blades out there, a Frued. I bought a quality metal mitre and put the Dewalt one in the cupboard.
Remember all who read here. These are pricey saws for a reason. So use a quality blade, set it up PROPERLY and you will never look back. Buy a saw then take it back so you can give it a bad review? That wouldn't happen, would it?

My slots are definitely not parallel, and they are cheap jobsite saws, not pricey saws lol. You posted a review in the question section. How you expect anyone to take your rant seriously, I don't know.

If a saw wasn't making a ton of dust then I'd be concerned, because that indicates the blade isn't cutting properly, these are powerfull power saws and dust is part of the process,end of story

Na mate, can't use dado blades. As far as I'm aware most Aus table saws don't have the funcunailty or recommend using them

The larger dewalts can take a dado but this one, the arbor is too short.
