Rated 5 out of 5Â by Brian Absolute necessity if you have to move your miter saw around a lot!
I bought this stand as a combo with the DWS780 miter saw and am very glad I did! I don't have a large shop so any time I need to do some work I have to lug my tools out and set them up, which can be tiring and time consuming. Miter saws are especially heavy and bulky, but it's usually the first tool I get out and the last one I put away. This stand will make me and my back much happier!
It was fairly straight forward to assemble as the instructions were pretty good. Usually, when I get anything that is beyond just a couple obvious parts, I will read the instructions and do exactly what they say just to see how "Dummy Proof" they are and these were pretty good. The only thing that I felt could have been clarified further was the axle assembly. If you've assembled these kind of axles before it is very straightforward and you won't bother with the instructions anyway, but if you haven't it could have been more helpful. The instructions basically said insert axle, mount wheel, tighten nut. Well, there are also 2 washers and a spacer that have to go on that aren't mentioned. Assembly order is axle, washer, spacer, wheel, washer, nut. As for the washers, there are 2 sides, one is slightly rough/flat and the other is rounded and smooth. When assembling the wheels, make sure the rounded/smooth sides are facing the wheels. If the other side is facing the wheels they will dig into the plastic and you'll get yellow shavings on the floor. I highly doubt it will do any real permanent damage to the wheels, but it's a simple thing to flip a washer and never think about it again.
As for usability, can't beat it! It collapses and raises up without any fear of it slamming down to the ground if you accidentally let go. It is very sturdy once up and the outriggers work great. There are 2 heights that it will stop at, but I really have no use for the shortest one as I am usually standing up while I'm working and it's just too short. It does still take a little strength to get it all the way up with a 60lbs miter saw on top, but it's nothing like dead lifting the saw by itself off the ground.
I would highly recommend this no matter what brand miter saw you've got! As adjustable as the mounts are on the stand, the base of your saw would have to be incredibly large to not fit. I've got the DWS780 on it and still had 3" more front to back as well as around 8" of side to side space left.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MRJEG A MUST HAVE
This stand is a must have for a miter saw. If you are like me I need all the space in my garage so portability is a must. It allows me to store miter saw easily then take out of garage easily when working on a project. Assembly was took longer than should have because of the instructions provided. The quality of the stand is awesome. Wheels have rubber and are not like cheap plastic. The stand comes with a shock to ease lifting and folding down.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by RJRR Excellent stand despite a few minor issues
Picked up the DWX726 to hold my new DWS780 slider. The stand is sturdy and overall well built. The ease to lift and lower is exactly what I was looking for. The portability is great, the support/feed rollers adjust perfectly and easily hold 8' long 2x4 and 4x4's with no sagging.
The only negatives were that two of the screw holes were very easily stripped during assembly. One of the M6 attaching the wheel supports and the small M6 on the handle. I simply retapped the leg hole to a 3/8-24 and drilled out the handle home and put a 1.5" 1/4-20 bolt with lock nut in it's place. I would be better if DeWalt had used through holes with bolts/nuts vs. the poor self tapped holes.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Grant Well worth the cost
I compared this stand to several other models. This was the only one that had actual rollers. It was only a few dollars more than the models that did not have true feed rollers, and it was well worth the extra few dollars. When using the stand with a planer the true feed rollers work excellent and make planing longer lengths of board much easier. If I had to do it all over again, I would purchase this unit again and again. Incredibly sturdy when used for either a planer or a miter saw.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RonJ Space Saving Miter Saw Stand that Rolls!
I bought this for a new Hitachi 12" Slider; it is a great match-up. I picked the Stand up at my local HD, and started putting it together. I had read numerous comments about the problems, and I thank everyone for the forwarnings - it saves a lot of time. It is one solid piece of work, and the pump to raise and lower- that is priceless. I would recommend when you go to assemble, look in the end of the table area, there you will find the hex wrench to handle the bolts. I can't say enough about the ingenious idea to collapse it, with the saw onboard, and store it like a dolly - really space saving and always ready to go. It is heavy, but the idea that I don't have to take the saw off the stand, move the stand to another location, and then reinstall the saw - thank you Dewalt. I strongly recommend the extra few dollars for this - it will pay dividends down the road.
