Questions & Answers

What is the difference between the 780 and the 779?

Asked by: JJ
I bought the DWS779 last year and added the light myself. The parts cost me about $65. It works great! I highly recommend adding the light. The part numbers and installation instructions can befound on YouTube. I love my 779. It is a beast. Mine came with a 32 tooth Dewalt blade which I have used successfully for trim work but I will likely buy a 100 tooth for the smoothest finish.

I have mostly Ryobi tools, which are great ,but when it came to a miter saw I wanted the best I could afford. This Dewalt was perfect. It was ready to go right out of the box. Strong motor, careful when you hit the switch, it will jump a little,it's so strong. Its heavy. 1st project was a sturdy table to put it on. Cut thru 4x4 legs no problem. I like the saw .

I bought the DWS779 last year along with the Ridgid folding stand that is similar to the Dewalt stand inculed in this promotion. The Ridgid does not include the gas assisted raising and lowering but it's very easy to do. This Black Friday package is a fantastic deal! I paid way more than that for my saw and stand and got them both on sale. I love and highly recommend this saw and the portability of the stand. It's so nice to just fold it up and roll it out of the way for storage. I added the DWS780 light to my DWS779 and highly rcommend it. It's an accurate shadow line as opposed to a laser line that might not show the exact cut line. With the shadow line, you can line up cuts with the edge of the blade teeth and not just with the side of the blade. Instructions and part numbers for the light can be found on YouTube.

Pretty much comes right out of the box ready to go. Seems to have a lot of torque and cuts effortlessly. Needed the larger saw for cutting 2x8’s for a table I am building that my older saw would not cut. Cut the boards with ease. So far very happy and for the price range of $350 I couldn’t seem to beat it.

Saw is powerful and seems 90deg to fence and 90 vertical out of the box. I've ordered digital angle gauge to check bevels. If you make a cut with slider and push blade as far down as possible it will hit metal bracket in bottom of saw and ruin your blade. Hard to believe for a saw that has been made the same way for awhile. Work around is to set the depth gauge every time you open it. If you want to close and push in pin to lock blade down you have to disengage the depth gauge. I wonder how long it will be before I forget and ruin blade. Stand is stable and I needed to be able to roll saw out on drive or patio for projects. The release mechanism is flaky and the lift assist is lacking as you get the saw up to full height. It is very difficult to get up to full height because it fails to lock onto the top level most of the time. The pullout supports don't have the rollers for some reason. I've seen YouTube videos of this stand raising and lowering with ease. Also the handle feels like it will shear of the two small screws that hold it on. Perhaps the ones that fail inspection are handed over to Home Depot for Black Friday sales.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Mitre Saw I purchased this Dewalt DWS779 from Home Depot Moncton, NB after messing up (2) 2X8 rectangular box with my el cheapo 9 in with about the same features. I had in mind to return it if it is as dumb as I am when it comes to cut and join 45 degree corners. So I followed all the instructions and 1/2 hour later I knew just enough to run a trial job: I used a 2X4 and cut four lenghts of 22" assembled them and as per the picture it is as perfect as I wanted it. When the length is as small as this one, any defects would be amplified; the longer the piece the less likely will you notice the defects. I also googled " how to cut perfect 45 degree with a mitre saw" and now I can do anything I set my mind to do. I am 68 years old and believe me when I say that when it comes to tools, spend a little more by purchasing top brands such as Dewalt and the results will surprise you. In fact I purchased this one while it was on sale. It does not have a laser line and to my point of view it is what it is... a gadget. Oh, by the way, I am keeping this gorgeous beast., worth the money and the 5 stars.
