versus

DeWALT DW744RS Table Saw With Rolling Stand


Which Is The Best Table Saw?  You Decide!

After doing an analysis of the various 10″ table saws with stands that are readily available to consumers, two table saws/stands stood out:  The Bosch 4100-09 & Stand and the DeWALT DW744XRS & Stand.  Both of these table saws/stands are very popular and highly thought of by individuals who have purchased them.  Not surprisingly, many of their features are the same or very similar.  However, there are a few differences.  I have compiled below the similarities and the differences in these two table saws & stands to help you make an informed and reasoned decision as to which table saw is better for your needs and purposes.


The Similarities

Both are 10″ table saws with 15 amp motors which provide 3,650 RPMs.  Their arbors are 5/8″, and their rip capacities are very similar (DeWALT – 24 1/2″ and BOSCH – 25″).  Both can cut dados up to 13/16″ wide,  and both provide a maximum cut depth of 3 1/8″ at 90 degrees.  Both saws have padlock insertion holes on the off/on switch, and come with miter gauges, rip fences, and push sticks.  Both have on-site storage for their safety guarding systems and push sticks.  Additionally, both table saw stands set up easily, are wheeled, have handles, and fold up to provide a more compact size for transportation and storage purposes.

Special Features That Stand Out

DeWALT – Rack and Pinion Rip Fence (really nice)

BOSCH – Smart Guard System (3-position riving knife, anti-kickback pawls, and blade guard)

DeWALT – 2 1/4″ Dust Collection Port (can connect to vacuum for efficient dust extraction)

BOSCH – Squarelock Rip Fence (best in class)

BOSCH – Gravity-Rise Stand (very, very easy to set up and take down)

DeWALT – Telescoping Fence Rail (expands the size of the DeWALT table surface)

BOSCH – A Digital Measuring Display accessory that can be purchased separately and attached to the Squarelock Rip Fence.


My Recommendation

Both of these are great table saws with well designed stands.   You could not go wrong choosing either one of these.  If I were replacing my own table saw today, I would probably opt for the Bosch 4100-09 table saw with the TS3000 Gravity-Rise Stand (because I really like the Smart Guard System and Gravity-Rise Stand) – – – although I was very impressed with the DeWALT rack and pinion rip fence.


Where Can I Purchase Either of these Great Table Saws/Stands?
