    Still $299 At HD. Please don’t use the miter gage with a piece against the fence. It is an accident waiting to happen.

  6. JP1970 on April 24, 2023 at 9:52 am

    Excellent video–I just bought one of these to replace an old Delta portable saw that was old and in need of replacement. Thank you. New sub!

    Great saw??? Try aligning the riving knife, garbage.

    Good review, Brother.

  11. Olga Mitsionis on April 24, 2023 at 9:56 am

    Best explanation 👍👍👍👍👍

  12. Mar K on April 24, 2023 at 9:57 am

    At $800 Australian ($1AU=$.7US) we are paying +$500US for this unit while you are paying $300-$399 (going by comments). As a result it is considered to be (here) at the top end of the DIY or job site line up over here with models such as Makita priced well below it. Regardless this is the one I purchased after watching many reviews like this. It did not disappoint. Mine came with a stand free but that stand lasted a week before I built a flip top bench and chucked it away. Low and unsteady it was dangerous. I’m very happy with this saw, it is accurate and a joy to use. Coupled with the Dewalt Airlock Y splitter hoses (another $149 spent) it barely leaves any mess after use.

  13. George Higgins on April 24, 2023 at 9:57 am

    Excellent pros and cons

  14. Cesar Salazar on April 24, 2023 at 9:57 am

    I just got the dcs7485 8 1/4 inch with the dw7440rs stand 😎

  15. John Roberts on April 24, 2023 at 9:59 am

    Just bought one,
    Lovely little table saw.
    The throat fence isn’t as stable as I’d liked and there’s no lock on the rise and fall but the guide fence parallel adjustment and locking system is excellent.
    So overall a well thought out
    Versatile saw.

  16. brian murray on April 24, 2023 at 10:00 am

    Nice review! However, your demonstration on sawdust emitting was downplayed by your ‘handling’ of cut stock.

  17. pecosROB on April 24, 2023 at 10:00 am

    Got the same table saw and the rolling stand for $359 total! 😂 Man I got a deal 😁

  18. Shawn McDonald on April 24, 2023 at 10:01 am

    I loved mine. Until I bought a $100 dado stack to find out that the 7485 can’t take a dado stack. GRRRRR!

  19. Dave Scarcliff on April 24, 2023 at 10:01 am

    Can you change the shaft to accommodate dado blades?

  20. brian kearns on April 24, 2023 at 10:06 am

    "You have no reason not to use the push stick"
    You just said that.Way to go.

  21. oeyo13o on April 24, 2023 at 10:07 am

    Just bought it online from Home Depot when they had a special buy on it for 329$ with the stand or without the stand for the same price. Obviously got the one with the stand, and next day delivery for free. The special buys online at Home Depot go on a rotating cycle, just be patient and get a great deal.

  22. hulk man on April 24, 2023 at 10:07 am

    softstart no

  23. Cory Moore on April 24, 2023 at 10:07 am

    Since you changed the blade should you change the riving knife?

  24. bob thebuilder on April 24, 2023 at 10:08 am

    These are £580 in the UK with is $804 that’s ridiculous it’s the exact same saw

  25. Steven S on April 24, 2023 at 10:09 am

    Appreciate the quick runthrough; just picked the 7480 and everything is pretty much the same One weird thing I encountered w it – and maybe I’m just a moron that doesn’t know how to seat the saw on the stand, but I ordered separately the Dewalt rolling stand and the mounting holes to the rails aren’t far enough apart to catch the front and rear slots! wth? It’s a dewalt stand for a dewalt saw??? So before I even used it, I had to fashion some sort of base that etended the reach to the slots. I settled on a tx4 of some hardwood – walnut? – made the hole measurements, then bolted the saw to the wood strips. Once the strips were in place, I bolted the saw to the metal arms and it’s as sturdy as a brick outhouse. One final thing about that rolling stand – and I apologize for focusing more on the stand than the saw, but although the stand is a great height for me, tilting the stand to vertical to roll and store w the saw attached feels sketchy as heck w those the aluminum legs and the snap lock system they use because you have to tilt it back on two legs as basically a fulcrum. it’s doable, but I think over time this is going to start some slop in the legs, which will be serious a problem. Not sure Dewalt thought this through very well, but overall, for my use it’s the most important tool in the shop…well, maybe tied w the router! Thanks so much for the tutorial brother, I’m ready to rip, no pun intended!

  26. Angel Lugo on April 24, 2023 at 10:10 am

    That crap machine is expensive!

  27. Donald Cone on April 24, 2023 at 10:13 am

    Why do peoplel use the fence for crosscuts?

  28. Joe P on April 24, 2023 at 10:13 am

    Thanks for the review and comments
    Just bought the saw and that was extremely helpful

  29. Thai Mai Shua on April 24, 2023 at 10:17 am

    Just picked one of at my local Rona store. Love it. The cut is very clean even with the come with 24T blade, and plenty of power.

  30. River on April 24, 2023 at 10:18 am

    hey, thanks for the video. If you do a cross cut, what is the maximum width the board can be?

  31. Miguel Hernández on April 24, 2023 at 10:20 am

    Just got mine today for $299 at Home Depot, priced matched from Lowe’s. My local Lowe’s didn’t have it in stock. My current zipcode 95677 showed it for $399 but my hometown zipcode 93906 showed it for $299, I’m in NorCal. Instead of getting it delivered from Lowe’s, I hit up HD just to see if they would price match it and after a lot of scepticism I got it dropped to the $299. They wanted to argue about the difference in locations but I called BS and they eventually gave in.

  32. Garviel Loken on April 24, 2023 at 10:21 am

    Dude! Excellent comprehensive view! Subbed

  33. Dave Daniels on April 24, 2023 at 10:22 am

    Best price in UK now is £400.

  34. C. Abrams on April 24, 2023 at 10:24 am

    I have a small job now that requires a table saw. Just discovered that this saw is on sale at HD for $300. I’m sold on Diablo blades…they last me years. Nice review.

    12:08 "I don’t use the plastic piece overhead because I frankly don’t have any use for it." Translated = I don’t value having fingers.

  36. limpet9 on April 24, 2023 at 10:26 am

    As usual the same story for us in the UK. This saw at the moment costs between £450 and £500 over here, that`s between $600 to $670. Would anyone in the U.S. still buy it at that price? I truly wonder about that.

  37. Bancroft Parker on April 24, 2023 at 10:27 am

    Good info but is he saying SAWL?

  38. badtolz2122 on April 24, 2023 at 10:27 am

    $299 at my Lowes right now. Worth buying? Other comparable options?

  39. Yussuf Mberwa on April 24, 2023 at 10:31 am

    I have enjoyed watching this tutorial and learning something new before buying my own table saw. Thanks, bro for the demo.

  40. The Liberian Perspective (TLP) on April 24, 2023 at 10:32 am

    I was waiting for the negatives, but only got mostly positives, so my wife did a great Job on this Christmas gift. Thanks for the video.

  41. Travis Klein on April 24, 2023 at 10:33 am

    good god I hope noone does it like this idiot and runs his hand so close to a non protected blade, DO NOT DO THAT, EVER

  42. A-Z Music Haven on April 24, 2023 at 10:34 am

    My wife surprised me with this very table saw today for Christmas… I am very pleased🤘🏻

  43. palle farligsen on April 24, 2023 at 10:35 am

    11:18 please dont cut things that are wider than they are long. A square maximum. it can rotate and fly backwards with extremly high speed. And never use 2 fences. More about "Kickback " here.

  44. Steven C Jones on April 24, 2023 at 10:36 am

    Well… Amazon delivered my new saw & Diablo blade today! I’d like to brag that the saw was perfectly aligned right out of box, but no such luck!
    1) Saw blade found to be parallel to miter slots and perpendicular to front and back table edges (thankfully)
    2) Removal and replacement of riving blade found to be easy / straightforward (Thanks DeWalt). Removed it while making alignment tweaks
    3) Table insert NOT level with table top… all four screws had to be adjusted to achieve planarity
    4) Saw blade NOT 90 deg to table top, and found that adjustment of stop to be a bit tricky… but finally tweaked it in OK
    5) Fence in both position 1 and 2 was NOT parallel with saw blade (nor perpendicular to table edges). Was able to tweak alignment per manual directions
    6) Removal / replacement of saw blade using supplied wrenches proved easy / straightforward
    7) Sample cut of short 1×6 board showed cut to be square in both directions… Viola!
    Think I’m really going to enjoy using this saw. Your review helped me gain confidence in the purchase, so thanks again!

  45. Jacob Forehand on April 24, 2023 at 10:38 am

    Table saw newbie here, and this video gave me the confidence to take my new Dewalt out the box and crank it up! Thanks for the guidance.

  46. Luis Odriozola on April 24, 2023 at 10:41 am

    How about using an 8" Freud thin kerf combination blade in it? doable or crazy dangerous?

  47. havlicekeys on April 24, 2023 at 10:43 am

    A pretty good rundown on the saw. As mentioned below, using the fence AND the miter gauge together is a major no-no. Some other things, I believe the miter gauge slot on the table is the standard width and depth. While the miter gauge seems like an after thought, replacing it would be easy enough. I also believe this saw uses the same 15 amp motor as the 10" saw, which is a very good thing since the DeWalt motor has been one of it’s strong suits. Makita is oddly way behind DeWalt in the jobsite table-saw category. After all these years, that one is a real head-scratcher. There isn’t a great selection out there for 8 1/4" thin kerf ATB blades, but there are some. In short, this is an even more affordable and compact version of DeWalt’s excellent jobsite table saws, that can still do a sheet of plywood in a pinch with it’s 24.5 inch capacity. personally speaking, I use a track saw for sheet goods, rather than a small table saw…easier, safer and more accurate.

  48. Sam Peat on April 24, 2023 at 10:43 am

    What model number stand is that one?

  49. Barrett Hamilton on April 24, 2023 at 10:44 am

    Great review. What is the size of the miter slot? 5/8 or 3/4?

  50. James Purdie on April 24, 2023 at 10:46 am

    Semper Fi, thanks for the review I just picked this up through work award points. Can’t wait to use it.
