My Take on the DEWALT DWE7491RS
[su_tabs][su_tab title=”Basics” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]First, the saw comes with a spacious ripping capacity with the surface measuring 26″ by 22″. This work area allows you to achieve different cutting results. The saw can cut through and across strong and dense wood material. Secondly, the saw is driven by a powerful motor (15-Amp). The motor enables you to carry through thick and large wood chunks. Additionally, when it comes to cutting narrow wood materials, the flip over mechanism allows you to cut thin strips of the wood. Furthermore, the DEWALT DWE7491RS is portably designed. Its wheeled nature makes the saw an easy to push machine around the workshop. Lastly, due to its flexible design, the saw is used in a wide range of applications, such as the installation of cabinets, home remodeling, and the building of decks among other jobs.[/su_tab]
[su_tab title=”Features” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]The saw is sturdily designed. This is highlighted by a wheeled and rolled stand. In terms of stability, this saw offers fairly effective results. The fence system of the saw allows smooth and fast adjustment of the machine. You can actually make adjustments when the machine is running, without the need to switch it off. The fence system improves the accuracy of sawing as it also saves you energy and time. Again, the safety features of the saw are indicated by a push stick and blade guard. This ensures that you are protected when sawing. In addition, the saw features a dust collection system, highlighted by a 2-inch port which you can connect to your vacuum of choice. This ensures that dust does not scatter in your workshop, and you do not compromise your health (through dust inhalation) or your safety (through the slippery nature of the dust). Lastly, the saw has an installed power reset feature that allows resetting of the machine after power interruptions.[/su_tab]
[su_tab title=”Maintenance” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]The saw requires regular inspection of the parts and maintenance. As for the miter gauge, which is prone to breakage under heavy sawing, it requires replacing when broken.[/su_tab]
[su_tab title=”Accessories” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]In addition to the table saw, the DEWALT DWE7491RS pack comes with a folding stand, rip fence, blade wrenches, blade guard, carbide blade (24-tooth), and push stick. The accessories are meant to help you achieve quality cutting. They are easy to fix and flexible to use.
