The DEWALT DWX723 Heavy Duty Miter Saw Stand is an improvement over the earlier table saw model from Dewalt, DW723. It is a lightweight miter saw which can handle a lot of abuse. Even though this stand weighs in at 35 pounds, it is very easy to carry around when folded. It feels solid in operation and doesn’t wobble when you operate miter saw on this stand. One of most impressive things about this miter saw stand is that the table extensions work well. These extensions remain completely straight even when you extend them to the end. Also, this stand can support up to 500 pounds of weight, and it can handle up to 16 feet length of material.
During our review of this miter saw stand, we wanted to test the weight carrying capacity, operational stability, table extensions and ease of use. We found that even though this table is made of extruded aluminum, it has a sturdy build. It did not bend and was able to handle up to 450 pounds of lumber easily. The extensions worked perfectly and kept the lumber completely straight. Another thing we like about this stand is that it can work with any brand of the miter saw and is not restricted to be used with some particular brands. We were also able to carry this single-handedly from our truck to the workshop and back. Based on all of these features, we rate this versatile miter saw stand at 4.9 out of five stars.
The first thing you notice when you get your hands on this miter saw is the solid build quality. The legs stretch out perfectly well, and the stand remains perfectly balanced on the legs even when working with very long pieces.
DEWALT-DWX723-Heavy-Duty-Miter-Saw-StandOne of the biggest drawbacks of many other miter stands is that the table extensions do not lock as they should and do not remain level. However, this is not the case with this particular Dewalt DWX723 miter saw stand. The table extensions lock into the place perfectly and remain completely level. Some buyers who have used this saw stand mentioned that the best thing about this stand is that the table extensions work perfectly well even after a few years of abuse.
When you take a look at the size of this saw stand, it is very difficult to imagine carrying it in a single hand especially when there are no wheels attached to this stand. But the design and low weight of this stand make it extremely portable.
It is very easy to set this up as the legs lock into the respective places with ball latches and you can easily adjust the length of arms. This stand comes with two miters saw mounting brackets and extension stops. Therefore, you can quickly set up your miter saw on the stand. Once your work is done, take off the miter saw, fold the legs and just lift the stand with the help of underside handle.
This miter saw stand extremely versatile and it can work with any brand of the miter saw. The brackets that come with this stand have a quick release feature which allows you to place the saw at any point on the rail. Also, if you want, you can have multiple saws on the stand at the same time.
The material support can be adjusted easily along the rail as well as up and down. Also, in addition to the miter saw, you can use this with other power tools in your woodworking shop.
