New 10” Jobsite Table Saw with Guard Detect™ from DEWALT®
DEWALT introduces the new DWE7499GD jobsite table saw with the Guard Detect feature. The guard must be installed in its proper position for the unit to be turned on, or the user must activate an override switch to use the unit without the guard installed. It also includes a no-volt switch, which aims to maintain the unit in the off position, when power is lost, until the user activates the switch. This table saw also includes a 15-Amp motor, said to be capable of the cutting performance that professional users need and demand. The DWE7499GD weighs approximately 90 lbs. with the stand, and it comes standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money-back guarantee. www.dewalt.com
