Product Description

Amazon.com

The first thing we look for in a table saw--portable or otherwise--is an accurate, smooth-working fence, and the telescoping fence on DeWalt's 10-inch portable table saw impressed us immediately. Fully extended, the fence delivers a 24-1/2-inch rip capacity, letting you cut to the center of a 4-by-8-foot sheet, while the rack-and-pinion design lets you make microadjustments fast and accurately. We also liked how the fence rides on both the front and back rails so that it's parallel to the blade at all times. The telescoping rails retract, too--when the job's done, the saw is easy and safe to transport.

Like most 10-inch portable saws, DeWalt's has a 3-1/8-inch depth capacity at 90 degrees and a 2-1/4-inch capacity at 45. The 15 amp motor cranks plenty of torque and doesn't lag when cutting hardwood or pressure-treated stock. Performance aside, DeWalt clearly also kept safety in mind when designing this saw. Its oversize on/off switch is positioned so you can easily bump it off with your knee if you get into trouble making a cut. The arbor on Dewalt's saw also has the capacity for a full dado stack. Add to that the saw's dust-collection hookup and sturdy steel stand, and you've got a portable table saw that can hold its own in the shop. --Jon Groebner

From the Manufacturer

The DW744S offers the capacity of a stationary unit with the convenience of a portable saw. Accuracy is achieved through the telescoping rack-and-pinion fence design, which ensures the fence stays parallel to the blade at all times. The fence extends to a full 24-1/2-inch rip capacity, enough to rip 4-by-8 sheet goods. A 15 amp high-torque motor provides the power to cut pressure-treated lumber and hardwoods. The saw includes a 10-inch carbide blade that delivers 3-1/8-inch depth of cut at 90 degrees and 2-1/4 inches at 45 degrees. The saw features a dust shroud that can be attached to a shop vacuum or dust-collection system. In addition, the tabletop has a smooth surface with a durable coating that won't scratch materials such as melamine or laminate, while the large 26-1/2-by-19-1/4-inch surface provides ample material support. Includes DW7440 table saw stand.

I also got the folding stand with it and it too works very well.
"hawkpilot"
That rack and pinion fence is perfect for even some of my more inexperienced helpers...easy to set and always extrememly accurate without adjustment.
Curt Welch
Also when I first unscrewed the nut on the arbor I had to use the wrench to get it off when it got to the end of the threads.

If you're buying a table saw for the first time, consider carefully whether you intend to use the saw for woodworking or for construction.

As a construction saw, this is a terrific saw.

This is a powerful and accurate machines that'll make you very productive. I particularly love the rack-and-pinion fence on the 744. It's a cinch to use -- just slide the fence, fine tune the position with the dial, and then snap the locking lever. The fence is perfectly parallel every time.

The telescoping fence has a clever supporting arm that allows you to rip up to 24.5" to the right of the blade. You can also move the fence to get 15.5" of ripping capacity to the left of the blade. (I think everyone pretty much agrees that it's a great fence.)

Although I'm pretty happy with my purchase, I have to agree with other reviewers about the shortcomings of this saw.

1. The table top is a bit small. In particular, there's not enough room between the fron!t of the table to the blade. This makes it hard to work with larger pieces.

2. The mitre gauge is so-so. As others have mentioned, the angle-stop tab sometimes gets pinched as you're sliding the mitre back. Also, I wish they made a mounting hole/slot on the mitre so that I can easily attach a jig.

3. The blade guard is a hassle to remove and to reinstall. It takes too much time and effort to remove the guard whenever I want to dado or use my cross-cutting jig (sled). This is the one place where I wish DeWalt could have borrowed from Sears Craftsman saws.

4. The universal motor is noisy and has a big start-up kick. There's also a bit of vibration even after the motor has spun up.

Good - This saw has as accurate a fence as they make. The rack and pinion mechanism starts and stays dead on. I have made furniture with very fine joinery tolerances. Everything always comes out square a straight. The motor works surprisingly well for 13 amp. Set up was as simple as unpacking the box.
Not so good - The mitre gauge is pretty flimsy and the 90 degree stop tends to catch on the table top when you start it beyond the edge. I replaced the mitre gauge to get rid of the headache. DeWalt, as they always seem to do, included a cheap blade with the saw. Easy enough to fix but why not throw in a nicer blade?
Good value for the money and I would buy it again.

I bought this saw a year ago and am pleased with it's power. The motor has ample torque through full sheets of plywood and solid hardwood.There is no loss of power with a dado blade and makes smooth cuts. But the accuracy is somewhat in doubt. The rack and pinion rails are accurate unless you push the fence by hand all the way to the right to th maximim rip capacity , one of the racks skip a gear tooth or two throwing the fence out of square. A double check with a tape measure fixes this.I have tried to adjust this without any success. I do however have to show every body how to adjust the fence for the first time. If you are careful this is not to major. The mitre slots and mitre gauge are a bit sloppy making for inaccurate and uneven cuts. I emailed Dewalt support 11 months ago and have had no response. The folding saw stand is sturdy and easy to store. The optional side and outfeed are great attachments that make handling bigger pieces a breeze.Overall you will be stisfied with this saw.

Im a carpenter with 15 years experience - speaking of portable table saws - Ive used the Bosch 4000, a few Delta's, the Ryobi's, the Makita 8 and 10" table saws, over the years.... I gave this product a poor review overall because of its poorly designed rack and pinion system which is easily compromised in the course of ordinary use.
The good:
1. solid table top
2. not too heavy for the average man to lift
3. stand is also not to heavy or bulky to load
4. Easy to eject debris from the chute if you happen to have any
The Weird:
a. no built in cord storage or wraparound. If you need to make a coupla quick cuts and dont need to bother setting up the stand, you will find no way to sit the saw on the floor without it crimping the AC power cord. Ugh !
b. if you need to carry the saw around much you may easily find the miter tool falling straight out of it's 'holder' (eg a slot in the plastic housing of the unit).
The Ugly:
I. The saw's rack and pinion system absolutely is a mess. In the course of ordinary cuts by multiple ordinary carpenters on one job, our saw's fence was consistently needing to be readjusted. Some carpenters figured out the flaw and were able to overcome it - but some were not. The secret lies in the way the rack and pinion gears are layed out - the rack gear moves back and forth, from left to right, as you would expect, but the pinion gear (which you would think would remain stationary) -can move up and down, enough to allow the two gears to become unbinded. UGH! Once this unbinding occurs, the fence *will* be out of parallel to the saw blade. Then you are left hoping to 'rebind' the gears after guessing which teeth need to 'mate'. Oh joy !
We found thru use that even moving the saw from room to room, or from truck to jobsite, was enough to cause the gears to unbind.
Eventually, you discover that the Bosch 4000 is the saw to buy if you've got a $500 budget and need portability.
