What is the difference between the 780 and the 779?

Asked by JJ January 31, 2016
10
Answers

Lots of incomplete answers here. The most obvious difference between the 779 and 780 is the XPS shadow light which, as others note, you can add after the fact AS OF THIS WRITING. Dewalt has a habit of updating individual parts of a saw (you will see references to Type 1, Type 2, etc.), and from one sub-version to the next you could lose or gain features...it is even possible that one subtype might be upgradable and another is not. Case in point, the older non-sliding 12" dual bevel DW716 is upgradable and can have the XPS shadow light added to it....the latest DW716 cannot. Beyond, the XPS light, rumor has it the latest version of the DWS779 does NOT have the in between bevel stops (22 degrees, etc.), while the earlier version did. I don't know if it has the "holes" so that you could add them. IT would be REALLY disappointing if you could not add those stops. On the Dewalt website, there are some part number deltas between the DWS780 and the DWS779 which suggests there could be other "under the hood" differences as well. Finally, the blade that comes with the DWS779 is a 32 tooth blade which is barely even suitable for a miter saw - as compared to the much more versatile 60 tooth blade that comes with the DWS780. In short, for the DWS 779 you cold be looking at adding the light kit for $70 or so and a decent $50-$60 blade to bring it in line with the DWS780. It is still "worth it" to get the DWS779 IMO when compared to the full price DWS780, but when the DWS780 is on sale, that delta is a lot smaller...

How is the accuracy of this saw?

Perfectly accurate. If you line up the side of the blade with your line, that's where it cuts.

Can the sliding function be locked so it doesn't retract if hitting a know? That is, I don't wan...

Asked by Bruce January 9, 2021

Answers

Yes. There used to be a hook that locked it in a standard non-sliding miter position. The hook is gone in the latest model (Type 22), however, there's a small black knurled knob on the top of the chassis, just short of the slide rails, which will lock the saw anywhere along the length of the rails.

Does the stand come with the saw

Dose it come with any blades?

Mine arrived with a 32 tooth blade, I contacted Dewalt and they sent me a 80 tooth crosscut blade free of charge.

Can an 80-year-old woman operate this machine ?

Asked by PollyAnne July 6, 2020

Answers

Yes but with the highest caution and must follow all safety requirements. This sliding miter saw is very heavy for a young muscular adult to be honest, so you should have some body to help you to attach it to a pre-built saw horse or a saw table stationarily.

Great saw but has some flaws
Had a 12" Dewalt sliding compound miter saw for 25 yrs. Electrical safety brake doesn't work right anymore. Takes 3 seconds to stop, even after trying to fix it, and thats unacceptable with certain cuts. The cost for me selling the old and getting a new one would be only about $120, so it sounded great. Anyhow, I am looking to return the new one because of 2 major issues. The first is that many more of the components are not the same quality as the old. The old parts are of thicker gauge and mostly metal, whereas, many of the new saw components are thinner and plastic. For instance, the stainless steel miter guide with detents is thinner and I'm not sure how well it will hold accuracy after years of use and wear. The old miter gauge was thicker and even had a bend in the outside curve that beefs the detent up quite a bit. But the major problem I have with the saw is with the rear fences that slide toward and away from the blade, allowing for angled cuts and such. Though the left adjustable fence is milled well, and is in plane with the permanent rear vertical support, the right fence is not. The right fence is more than 1/64" out of alignment with the rest of the vertical supports. And the rear fence also seats at a vertical tilt when it is locked in place. So the right rear fence may help support the piece, but when you finish a cut, you like will get a bind on the saw blade as the waste part moves. Who wants a bed or rear support that isn't square or flat? I really like the other parts of the saw, and it seemed promising, but I'm not sure I can live with these defects of the saw. I thought this might be a defective saw fence, but I examined the display model in HD, and discovered that they are milled the same, and that all will likely have this defect. Its a shame, because the old saw has been a beast and owes me nothing, but I think I will likely stick with the old one. If one buys this saw for general cutting, I don't think you will find a better saw at this price point. But for those who want dead-on accuracy for precision work, this may not fit the bill.

DeWALT....DWS779 15 Amp Corded 12in Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw. I bought this saw to Upgrade from my DW716 Non Slider and I'm so glad I did it has more than met my expectations. The cutting capacity of this saw is great (14 inches wide) and the one thing that surprised me the most is how much quieter it is than my old one. this saw is light weight and can be moved around fairly easy. the 3800 RPM 15 Amp motor has lots of power. This saw does everything I need it to do and it will serve me well for many years. This is a great tool.

After one year of using this saw
I have had the saw for little over a year and now I am doing something that I really should have never need to do I am replacing bearings in the saw just after a year of use I now wish I would have purchased the Ridgid saw with its life time warranty. It is looking like Dewalt is now cutting corners there tools. I used a Dewalt saw for installing cabinets 15 years ago and never a problem hundreds of cabinets a year. No bearing replacement on that saw even after 4 years.
