With a carbide blade and the ability to shrink down small for storage, the DEWALT Compact Job Site Table Saw is popular with the DIY crowd.

The durable 15 Amp 4800 rpm motor quickly rips through hardwoods with ease.

This table saw features on-board storage that provides easy access to the Site-Pro Guarding components and push stick when not in use and since the unit only weighs 45 pounds, the DWE7480 can easily be moved on and off the job.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Lightweight and reasonably priced. Made by a reputable manufacturer.
The saw impressed me with it’s power when ripping difficult materials from framing to hardwood trim.
The blade responsible for doing all the sawing is 10 inches in diameter, and is made out of carbide which is an extremely hard substance.
DeWalt have done a amazing job with the DWE7480. It has really tried to learn from feedback on its predecessor and this is evident with the upgraded motor and the ability to rip full size sheet materials.

What reviewers didn't like

No stand included. (Stand is available at an additional cost.)
My one minor issue with regard to durability is the fence connection clamps that are made of plastic.
