Dewalt DWE7485 Table Saw for Jobsite Review

Introducing the DEWALT DWE7485 8-1/4 in. table saw. Exploited extremely for accuracy as well as capacity, this includes but not limited to onboard storage for blade guard assembly, non-through cut riving knife, anti-kickback pawls, blade change wrenches, mitre gauge plus push stick.

The ever so powerful DEWALT 15 amp, 5800 RPM motor gives users the opportunity to complete a number of applications at one go. The rack and pinion fence permit for fast as well as easy adjustments and caters for the capacity to rip 4×8 sheet goods. The beauty of learning is that you discover new things every day. I recently bumped into a bit of information that I strongly believe will benefit everyone in the long run.

The blade and table

This magnificent tool has an 8 and ¼ inch blade in size. The actual size of the blade is a little smaller than most of the previous models. It seems like DeWalt decided to shrink the size of the blade as well as the size of the table. Making the table of the new model a little smaller.

The new size is all thanks to the UL (Underwriters Laboratories) standards. Changes were made in late 2019. Keep in mind though that the older models of the Dewalt saw might become unavailable as the company will push and ensure that the newer updated models will then meet all the new regulations. For some, they may feel that the size of the saw it’s not large enough. The ability to cut any large sheet may prove difficult without an assistant. 


8-1/4 inch blade with 5800 RPM, but don’t worry the tool starts out very smoothly. Unlike the previous versions, it doesn’t jump on start. You are guaranteed of a very smooth start and the saw reaches the top speed very fast so no need to wait. It allows for making cleaner cuts. The machine is very portable. The compact size for it allows ease in terms of transportation as well as storage. Let’s not forget the part about easy adjustments. 

The rack and pinion telescoping fence rails make the fence ensure that adjustment can be done at a fast, smooth and accurate rate. Then comes the issue of a variety of cuts. The machine offers 24.5 inches of rip capacity when it comes to ripping as well as 4×8 plywood or OSB sheets. Power, that word means a lot in the industry. 

The machine offers up to 15 Amp, 5800 rpm motor which is a lot. For those concerned about storage, the machine’s onboard storage which also caters for easy access to the site pro not forgetting guarding components and push stick whenever it’s not in use. Last but not least guaranteed tough which is a metal roll cage that will ensure job site durability, therefore, meaning less stress.

The machine is very affordable and you order it online. I strongly recommend you buy this machine as it is worth it.
