New Rolling Stand Available in Combo Kit with 10" Compact Table Saw

April 2008 - DeWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, announced the launch of its new heavy-duty rolling table saw stand (DW7440RS), providing professional contractors with a lightweight stand for improved portability and ease of use. Available in May 2008, the stand will also be available in a combo kit with the DW744X 10" compact tablesaw (DW744XRS). The combo kit provides end users with the lightest portable table saw/stand in it's class - with a combined weight of 90lbs. This lightweight table saw is equipped with a 15A, 2,600 MWO motor designed to cut hardwood materials and has a patented Rack & PinionĀ® fence system, which maintains blade to fence parallelism within 1/64".

The DW7440RS is equipped with large rubber wheels and a heavy-duty kick stand that allows the unit to balance upright for easy mobility and storage. The stand is the only one of its kind to offer a wide base and offset rear legs that provides increased stability and support for improved material feed control. The folding legs of the unit are designed with quick release levers that allow users to easily tuck the legs under the stand for easy transport.

For improved versatility, easily detachable brackets allow for quick disconnect of the table saw for loading and unloading. The DW7440RS stand also has a retractable soft grip handle that slides out, allowing users to pull the saw behind them comfortably with the weight of the saw near the ground.

Ideal for general contractors, framers, remodelers, custom carpenters, cabinet installers, and window and door installers, the DW7440RS is designed to carry all DEWALT portable table saws and allows users to experience easy, lightweight transportation on the jobsite.
