The removable stand is a great thing as you can detach it when you are not using the saw and keep both the stand and the saw separate to save space.

Power & Speed
The requirement of the table saw to run efficiently is 15-amp power input. These 15 amps power a direct drive brush motor with a capacity of going up to 4,800 RPM.
The motor is very powerful, but unfortunately, it is just a bit loud for its size.
That is a lot of RPM!
You will not face any kind of problem in cutting through ply and hardwood. You can any type of wood with this table saw without even it stressing the motor.
Although this is a portable and compact table saw, it does have a large cut rip capacity. With the DEWALT DWE7480XA table saw, you will get a maximum rip capacity of 24 inches. It also has an extendable fence which is really easy to use.
DEWALT DWE7480XA uses a 10-inch 24 tooth carbide blade. It is a 5/8 Arbor blade which will give you performance on par with full-size table saws.

The overall working table on this saw is 22 inches by 23 inches.
You will be able to work easily with the provided 10-inch blade, but it will not cut the wood very smoothly. At some point, you would have to replace the blade and buy something which is much better than the stock free blade which comes with the DEWALT DWE7480XA.
We would recommend you to buy this Diablo D1050X Saw Blade. This is one of the best blades out there which will fit in this table saw.
While working, you would notice a downside to this table saw. The downside is that it does not accept dado blades. The reason for that is the shaft of the saw is short and cannot accommodate a dado blade.
If you are working on an uneven surface, you can actually fine-tune the legs of the stand to keep the table flat.

You will get a stand with the portable saw. The stand is very tough and durable. When you are not using the table, you can actually fold it up so it will require minimal storage space.

The size of the table is 26.5 X 25.8 X 17.5 inches. This is really a good-sized table to make sure that the saw is properly held on it.
The surface area is big, so it can support the stability when you are working with large pieces of wood on the saw. Cutting wider sheets of wood requires the table saw to be very stable.
As with the Dewalt DWE7491RS table saw, this one also has a storage area.
The storage underneath the table is provided so that you can store all your saw and safety equipment in there. You can place things like push stick and Site-Pro parts in the storage box.
Another reason why this storing your things inside this storage bag would be a good idea is that if you are shifting from one job site to another, then you will not forget your stuff if it is kept with the table saw.
