Dewalt DWE7485 Table Saw for Jobsite Review [UPDATED]

the DEWALT DWE7485 8-1/4 in. table saw is renowned for accuracy and capacity. This includes but is not limited to onboard storage for blade guard assembly, non-through cut riving knife, anti-kickback pawls, blade change wrenches, miter gauge plus push stick.

The ever so powerful DEWALT 15 amp, 5800 RPM motor allows users to complete several applications in one go. The rack and pinion fence permit fast and easy adjustments and caters to 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. 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 and the size of the table. Making the table of the new model a little smaller.

The new size is thanks to the UL (Underwriters Laboratories) standards. Changes were made in late 2019. Keep in mind 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 saw’s size is not large enough. The ability to cut any large sheet may prove difficult without an assistant. 

DEWALT DWE7485 Features

8-1/4 inch blade with 5800 RPM, but don’t worry, the tool starts very smoothly. Unlike the previous versions, it doesn’t jump on start. You are guaranteed 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. Its compact size for it will enable ease in terms of transportation and storage. Let’s not forget the part about easy adjustments. 

The rack and pinion telescoping fence rails make the fence ensure that you can do adjustment 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 and 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 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.
