I keep a 5 horsepower Unisaw in my shop, but I am in the field doing installs 70 percent of the time. So when I had the opportunity to review the DeWalt DWE7480 10-inch Compact Jobsite Table Saw, I shook off the sawdust and ran right over.
At just 40 pounds, this thing is light. Unpacking and assembly was a breeze: snap on the fence, install the guard, and you're ready to go. The only tool you need is the blade wrench.
For pros looking for a portable table saw, the word “compact” can indicate too much loss of function. Not so with the DeWalt. The 15-amp motor is pretty much the standard on this class of saw, and you still get a full 24 inches of rip capacity. The rear feet are adjustable, which is helpful if you’re working on a slightly uneven surface. There’s also a standard 2½-inch port for a dust extractor connection.
