Summary: These two saws are also well compared at Tools of the Trade and at ThisIsCarpentry.com. Single-product reviews at Fine Homebuilding and The Journal of Light Construction cover the DW745 in 2007, before it was redesigned with a riving knife, but still add useful comments. We also found helpful ratings and comments from owners at Amazon.com, HomeDepot.com, Lowes.com and DeWalt.com.
Pros: Light (45 lbs.), Easy adjustments, Plenty of power, Small footprint
Cons: Lacks soft-start motor, No dado capacity, Miter gauge a weak point, A few reports of quality control issues
