About this deal

On my unit the fence was inaccurately machined such that the face of the left-hand fence sat a millimetre or so behind the face of the right-hand fence.

I have heard many complaints of users catching the webbing between their thumb and finger in the trigger lever, but I never encountered this issue and I don’t see how it is possible if you are holding the handle correctly. The DWS774LX Sliding mitre saw from Dewalt is an incredibly functional power tool that has been designed with professionals in mind and suits commercial and domestic working environments. It features dual additional carrying handles for portability that also serve as a support extensions for large materials. This 110V model is suitable for use on construction sites and locations with lower voltage requirements.The 1400-watt, 230-volt motor spins the blade at a no-load speed of 4500 RPM, producing an A-weighted sound pressure level of 93dB and a sound power level of 104dB(a). One of its standout features is the integrated XPS cross-cut positioning system, which casts a shadow line on your workpiece, ensuring precise and accurate cuts every time. The fence is somewhat adjustable via the pair of Torx bolts that secure it to the base of the saw, though its greatest weakness lies in its single-piece construction. The following are trademarks for one or more DEWALT power tools, accessories, anchors and concrete adhesives: The yellow and black color scheme; the “D”-shaped air intake grill; the array of pyramids on the handgrip; the kit box configuration; and the array of lozenge-shaped humps on the surface of the tool.

With a head lock function that allows the head to be fixed, restricting the traverse function for trim applications and ease of transportation. A 24-tooth blade is supplied which is fine for cross-cuts in wood and gives a finish that is acceptable, though better results are obtained with a blade upgrade.

In addition this also gives the user a worklight making the work surface much brighter and easier to work on. This should have been made adjustable at a right angle to be of any benefit esp if space is limited. Built with safety in mind the saw is airlock compatible and allows for the addition of a dewalt dust extraction system, providing users with a dust free work area. The right-most handle holds the Allen key and blade spanner, the latter held by a needlessly over-engineered series of clips beneath the handle. The new head lock function delivers better usability, for both restricting the traverse function for trim applications and for transportation.

The DeWalt DWS774-GB sliding mitre saw is designed to perform large material cuts at a variety of angles. Available in both 110v and 240v, this impressive, professional 216mm mitre saw with XPS is fully upgraded from the previous model the DWS773. Like most top dewalt products the DWS774 mitre saw incorporates their branded XPS shadow system for improved cutting accuracy while boasting a large cut capacity of 62 x 250mm. With fixed left and right hand fences with measuring scale for improved material support and management. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Aligning the blade to produce a square cut was impossible, as when the blade was aligned to one fence it would be mis-aligned with the other.
