NEW Job-Site Table Saws from DEWALTDWE7480

This compact table saw, despite it's small footprint and ultra light weight of 48-pounds, is armed with a 15-amp motor to melt through hardwood and pressure treated lumber. The saw is protected by it's roll cage base and the rear feet on the saw were designed to be able to adjust to accommodate uneven work stations.

Additionally, the small DWE7480 has a large 2-1/4 inch dust collection port to easily attach a shop vac to control dust when using this stair friendly saw in a 2nd or 3rd story room indoors.
Specifications Amps: 15.0Amps No Load Speed: 4800rpm Blade Diameter: 10″ Arbor Size: 5/8″ Dust Port Diameter: 2-1/2″ Depth of Cut at 90°: 3-1/8″ Depth of Cut at 45°: 2-1/4″ Max Rip To Right Of Blade: 24″ Max Rip To Left Of Blade: 12″ Max Width of Dado: N/A" Tool Weight: 48lbs Shipping Weight: 57lbs

This saw is light and fast, but still has the power you need to quickly get your work done. I'd recommend this tool for trim carpenters who work in tall residential buildings where climbing 2 or 3 flights can get old fast or flooring guys who work close to the ground, don't need large rip capabilities, and need to move their saw frequently during work.

Nipping at the heels of the current release of their 12V MAX power tool line, Dewalt is introducing another platform of remastered and structured cordless power tools. Launching this September, the 20V MAX line is expected to make a significant splash (for factors both great and, maybe, not so good) with the tool neighborhood.

Presenting 7 innovated power tools and a worklight, Dewalt's 20V MAX line is total, detailed and concentrated on operator convenience and benefit. This is where the line is expected to make a favorable splash. The tools are lightweight, completely ergonomic, and boast a total outstanding battery life. The redesign of the tools' bodies, much like that of the 12V MAX line, is completely structured and with the addition of a couple of more LED's, operation stays precise and precise regardless of less than ideal working conditions. The tool's are well balanced, basic to utilize, and with some small speed and power upgrades, the tools are nothing to shake a stick at.

The 20V MAX line, however, deviating from Dewalt's previous focus on in reverse compatibility, is not compatible with their previous 18V platform. This relocation, despite the re-badging of the brand-new line as 20 volts, has put more than a handful of users in a funk. They feel a little forsaken, a little lost in the shuffle, and although Dewalt insists they will keep the previous 18V platform and continue improving it (within the limitations of its stem-style battery style), many Dewalt 18V users don't feel as enthusiastic about the 20V platform.

Additionally, and as formerly suggested, the 20V MAX line does not in fact produce 20V of working power. In fact, its power output is no various from Dewalt's previous 18V line. The platform is tagged with 20V (rather than 18V) only to avoid compatibility confusion.

Now, after those technicalities are in the open, lets talk a little bit more about exactly what, specifically, occurs with these tools.

The DRILL-DRIVER:
Starting with certainly the most popular kind of power tool, Dewalt's 20V drill-driver can be found in two a little different versions. The DCD780C2 compact drill-driver package (with a 1.5-Ah battery) and the DCD980L2 premium drill-driver package (with a 3.0-Ah battery, slightly larger than the 1.5). In addition, the hammerdrill-driver and effect driver likewise can be found in these a little unique versions, but, I (type of) digress.

The tool weighs simply a measly 3.4-lbs however in spite of that compact design, the tool's a high-speed, 2-speed transmission (0-600/ 0-2,000 RPM) ensures the drill-driver still loads a significant punch. The thing has 15 clutch settings and the package consists of two 20V MAX lithium ion batteries, a 30-minute fast charger, belt hook, on-board bit holder, a package box, and a 3-year limited warranty (on the tool only).

On another hand, the DCD980L2 premium drill-driver package weighs 5.2-lbs however still produces an unexpected amount of power from a sleek and comfortable plan. The 3.0-Ah battery life is impressive and the batteries themselves add to the general well balance of the tool (of course, the exact same holds true of the other tools in this line-up). The tool's 3-speed all-metal transmission in addition boosts those long run-times and, through matching the tool's output to each application, the basic high-performance of the tool as well. With three integrated LED lights, the tool eliminates shadows while working and because the drill has a heavy-duty ratcheting chuck (with carbide inserts for enhanced gripping strength) and a high-efficiency motor, the driver's power and efficiency are always reliable. Max RPM is 0-575/ 0-1,350/ 0-2,000 and the clutch has 22 private settings. The package consists of a one-hour charger, 2 20V MAX batteries, a 360-degree side handle, set box, a 90-day money back assurance, a 1-year free service agreement, and a 3-year limited guarantee (on both the battery and the tool).


Presenting 7 innovated power tools and a worklight, Dewalt's 20V MAX line is total, extensive and focused on operator convenience and benefit. The tool's are well balanced, simple to use, and with some small speed and power upgrades, the tools are absolutely nothing to shake a stick at.

The 3.0-Ah battery life is outstanding and the batteries themselves contribute to the overall well balance of the tool (of course, the exact same is real of the other tools in this line-up). The tool's 3-speed all-metal transmission in addition boosts those long run-times and, through matching the tool's output to each application, the basic high-performance of the tool.
