Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good saw, value comes from accessories I have LOTS of experiences with ALL the major brands of track saws. Here is what I've found... If you want the very best, (and can afford it) get Maffel. If you want the next best, (almost same quality) get Festool. But if you only want the advantages of a track saw without the ridiculous high price, get this DeWalt or the Makita SP6000. The only difference between the Makita SP6000 and this (or all the other expensive saws) is that the Makita SP6000 does NOT have a riving knife. A riving knife is only necessary when cutting raw timber that has internal stresses which can grab the blade and cause kickback. Since these saws are primarily used for sheet goods, the missing riving knife is usually a trivial feature. The big advantage with Makita is the LOW PRICE, but then you have to pay WAY too much for the track and other accessories which are sometimes difficult to find at all. The great advantage with this DeWalt model is, the tracks, angle-guide, friction strips, zero-clearance strips are MUCH less expensive. So when you add it all up, you will spend the same or slightly LESS with this saw, especially if you need the LONG track for cutting full-sheets of plywood lengthwise. In brief: ALL the major brands of track-saws are good. The main difference is price and accessories. Makita does not have a riving knife, and the accessories are expensive, but it cuts great and costs less up front. The two German big boys (Maffel and Festool) are both great, but you have to pay a LOT. Unless you are a pro who can take depreciation and other deductions, they are hard to justify. The DeWalt track is different than all the others; It has TWO guide-rails instead of ONE, and it is reversible. That means you have TWO sides to cut on, and do not need to immediately replace the zero-clearance strips if one gets damaged. You can keep working until the new strips arrive. This DeWalt has all the high end features (including the riving knife) AND a good selection of accessories that cost less than the competition. The only unique feature is the TWO SIDED track, which is potentially valuable for pros. Do the research and verify these conclusions for yourself. Look at the base prices but be sure to include the cost of all the accessories you need or want. For the record, and to prove I am not a shill, I bought the Makita SP6000 because it fit my budget and I do not need a long track or other accessories. So I am NOT working for DeWalt. But do your homework; add up the cost vs benefits and include the cost of accessories. If you need several tracks of different lengths, or just want all the accessories, this is the best bargain overall. June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase if you have limited space My wife & I do a woodworking projects, including furniture building, but we don't have the space for the table saw we want. The DeWalt Track Saw is a great alternative if you have limited space. Its low profile and thin track (we have the 4' & 8' tracks) let you see exactly what line you're cutting to. It's easy to make long, straight cuts in plywood & hardwoods. Great for precision cutting! The only draw back, when you compare it to a table saw, is that a table saw fence will allow you to make consistently square cuts without remeasuring. With the track saw, you have to measure & remeasure to ensure you lined up the track properly. May 29, 2014
