We noticed a press release over on the DeWalt site a couple of days ago regarding their introduction of a new 10″ compact table saw — the DW745. For some reason, though, there’s no information about it on the site and the press release has apparently been removed.
A call to DeWalt brought the photo you see to the right, along with some basic information: The DW745 will join DeWalt’s current saw line offering contractors and other portable saw users the choice of a lighter unit than the current DW746. Apparently the DW745 will be quite light, weighing in around 45 lbs. (vs. 254 lbs. for the DW746). We remember from the original release that it’ll offer a 15-amp motor and a 16″ capacity.
You can also see from the photo that the DW745 will have a protective “roll cage” similar to those we’ve seen on other high-end portable table saws.
As we learn more, we’ll pass it on.
