DeWalt DW744X 10-Inch Table Saw Review Roundup – 24-1/2″ Max Rip Capacity & Folding Stand


DeWalt DW744xThe DeWalt DW744X may well have been succeeded by its older brother the Dewalt DW744XRS, but this does not necessarily mean that you should instantly skip over it. While the DW744X may have a few less features than its older brother, it can also now be found at a much lower price and if you shop around you can find some seriously good-value deals on the Dewalt DW744X jobsite saw.

Most of you will know that Dewalt is a name that can be trusted in as far as power tools are concerned. They are among the most popular with tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts alike thanks to their overall reliability, precision and durability. We take a look below to see if the DEWALT DW744X saw continues with those attributes by looking at customer reviews.

DEWALT DW744X

There had been a total of 18 user reviews for the DEWALT DW744X when this roundup was written and the saw was awarded a total of 3.7 from 5 star rating by those people. This is the lowest rating for any table saw we have reviewed so far and much lower than the DEWALT DW744XRS which scored 4.4 from 5.

The review rating breakdown is as follows:

5 stars: 5
4 stars: 5
3 stars: 6
2 stars: 1
1 star: 1

This gives the DW744X an overall satisfaction rating of only 55% – again the lowest for any table saw we have seen so far.

So why exactly did the reviewers rate the DW744X so low? We see below why people were not so impressed:

“The rip fence on the first saw I received would not align parallel to the blade. Out of the box, the rip fence was more than 1/2″ out of alignment…”

The person above also had questions about the saws overall quality, however they admitted they had not actually used the saw at the time of writing this:

“Questionable manufacturing quality… Questionable documentation quality… Questionable engineering quality…”

That customer was not alone however with their opinion, with comments like these from other users…

“Great potential saw with a lot of adjustment…”

“I have had one of these for years and the only complaint I have is that the fence will not stay even with the blade. I swapped it out for a new one and it has the same problem…”

Could it be that Dewalt have produced a product out of line with their usual high standards?

“Poor quality control. I believe once I get beyond these poor factory quality issues I might have a good saw…”

“Poor rack and pinion design…”

The answer to that could be ‘yes’, however some people did rate the DEWALT DW744X so it could still be a decent option for the cost-conscious right? Maybe…

“I respect what the other reviewers have said (hey, if you’ve had a bad experience, you’ve had a bad experience) but mine has been nothing but positive…”

“This saw cuts with ease. The ability to rip up to 24.5 inches has already come in handy in the first week of using it. It makes it easy to cut plywood by yourself and the guard once set up makes consistent accurate cuts every time…”

Also this person actually likes the fence design on the DW744X!

“Fence design is beautiful, you just scroll to the right width and the dual track eliminates the unevenness you get from other fences…”

Though there are positive comments to be had from the reviewers of the DEWALT DW744X, we would find it hard recommending this jobsite table saw to anyone but those looking for a real bargain. The old saying “You get what you pay for” certainly seems to ring true here and while the DW744X can be found at a good price, it does not seem to live up to Dewalt’s usual high standards.

Have Dewalt missed the cut with the DW744X?

For most people we would recommend looking at the Dewalt DW744XRS over the DEWALT DW744X as judging by the overall feeling towards this saw from its users, there seems to be design and quality issues overall.

3.7 out of 5 starsSee the latest rating, user reviews and discount here…
