Who is the DEWALT DWE7480 for?

The DWE7480 saw is designed for a variety of woodworking jobs, but is mainly used for ripping large sheets of wood. As a compact job site table saw, the DWE7480 is ideal for woodworkers who want a portable table saw that delivers a professional performance.

DEWALT DWE7480 features

Power – Like with most DEWALT table saws, the DWE7480 carries an impressive 15-amp motor. The table saw also features a no load spinning speed of 4,800 RPM, allowing it to rip through wood with ease.

Blade – To saw through tough woods, the DWE7480 is fitted with a 10 inch diameter blade. This blade is constructed from an extremely hard substance, known as carbide.

Portability – Overall the unit weighs 56lbs, which is relatively light when it comes to this tool. Portability of this unit is increased further with small dimensions of 26.5 x 25.8 x 17.5 inches. We would prefer if the unit came with wheels to make transportation even easier, but the DWE7480 is still easy enough to move from job to job.

RIP capacity – Compared to other saws, the DWE7480 has a relatively low RIP capacity. However, at a little under 24.5 inches, the saw will prove more than enough for the majority of applications. In fact, even large pieces of wood-based material can be sawed through with ease. Furthermore, the table saw features a bevel degree ranging from 0 to 45 and a blade arbor measuring 5/8 inches.

Precision – What do we all want from our table saw? Yes, precise cuts! The DWE7480 features a neat rack and pinion telescopic fence which is easily locked, allowing for maximum stability and minimal accidents. The unit table is coated with a low-friction coating that allows everything to run smoothly and ensure consistent cuts.

Build – With a stand crafted from steel tubes, the unit is sturdy and holds its position well. Should you require portability, simply fold the stand and move the unit to the next location. The unit also features feet at the rear of the stand to allow users to work on uneven surfaces. Finally, no one likes a messy worktop – that’s why this unit comes with a 2.5 inch dust collection port, which should be attached to a vacuum.

Safety – Safety is paramount. Luckily, the DWE7480 comes with DEWALT’s Site-Pro Modular Guarding System. This innovative system allows users to easily adjust the guarding components of the saw without the need for any additional tools.

Included:

  • DWE7480 10-inch table saw
  • 10-inch, 24 tooth carbide blade
  • Miter gauge
  • Push stick
  • Blade guard

Conclusion

Looking for a portable but powerful table saw? Then the DEWALT DWE7480 may be the correct unit for you. I hope this DWE7480 saw review has proved useful to you, and you now have a better understanding of the product.

To sum up, this table saw is a winner in a number of ways. Firstly, the rack and pinion fence system allows for precision accuracy. The direct-drive motor has supreme power that allows most taks to be carried out with ease. Finally, the unit has a solid build, but can be easily moved from job to job.
