Dewalt DWS774 Mitre saw opinions?
« on: July 24, 2016, 05:50 AM »
Has anyone used the Dewalt DWS774?

I have a Bosch 12" Glide on gravity rise stand for first fix and I'm looking for something small and light for second fix applications, as the Bosch is 30KG + stand and overkill to man handle into second fix jobs and a nightmare up stairs.

The DWS774 is only 11KG has a decent cutting capacity of 62x250mm cross cut which is more than adequate for 95% of second fix that I do and has a similar rail design to the Kapex and Bosch Glide where the rails don't protrude from the back of the saw. I'm guessing it'll be pretty accurate and not suffer from much deflection owing to its small blade size and short compact rails.

Sorry, a bit late to the party, I have used the dw777 which I'm guessing is the DWS774 predecessor and I didn't like it. I found it uncomfortable to pull out the saw because you are pulling it up before dropping it down and then pushing it through, whereas a normal saw just slides on horizontal rails. I would say try before you buy.
