DEWALT DWX725B Heavy Duty Miter Saw Stand Review
DEWALT DWX725B Heavy Duty Work Stand with Miter Saw Mounting Brackets
Easy to Carry Compact and Lightweight
Flawlessly constructed with thoughtfully helpful features, this is heavy duty and genuinely gives you that awesome-for-the-money feeling.
So, what makes this thing so irresistible?
Okay, first up, the built is madly strong. They don’t call this a “heavy duty” stand for nothing!
I actually mounted DEWALT’s DWS780 compound saw on this and I expected it to wobble quite a bit. This is after all a 55-pound mini monster of a saw.
To my amazement, it did not wobble. Sure, there was a little shake for about maybe a second or two, then it took all that weight while remaining steady as a rock—very impressive indeed.
What I found most impressive at first was the fact that it weighs only fifteen and half pounds, due to the lightweight aluminum construction. But then I realized that according to the user manual, the primary center beam is capable of withstanding a weight load of up to 1000 pounds.
That’s simply genius engineering work right there!
One thing to remember, however, is that the DWX725B is not made exclusively for handling miter saws. It just doesn’t have the capacity to enable your saw to cut wood pieces that are no longer than, say, 6 or 7 feet.
But if you plan on using it to cut short wood pieces with your miter saw, then it’s a great buy. This heavy duty work stand can of course be used to hold other types of tools like a bench grinder for instance.
It’s always a huge hassle to bring out the miter saw and get it properly set up in your work shop, but thanks to the DWX725B, the whole process becomes near effortless. The levers allow for fast and easy set up.
You only have to fold the legs down, engage the leg lock levers, mount your saw to the miter saw mounting brackets, and you’re all set for some wood cutting action. The brackets won’t slide away because there are two locking tables at the top rail that make them stay in place.
Once you’ve completed your work, simply remove your saw, by engaging the hand release brakes, fold the legs up, and you can put it away. It doesn’t take more than a minute to pack it all up.
When folded its compact design requires minimal space and its lightweight aluminum construction allows for easy transport along with its transport latch and carrying handle.
Does it only support DEWALT brand miter saws?
Fortunately, no! This work stand fits most saws on the market. If you check out the miter saw mounting brackets, you’ll see a slot and most miter saw units should be able to slot in comfortably.
A good buddy of mine has a 12-inch compound miter saw by Hitachi, and he’s able to use it on the DWX725B without any problems. And another friend is currently using it for his PORTER-CABLE miter saw and again, it works absolutely fine. The mounting brackets appear to be versatile.
As far as I’m concerned, when it comes to this work stand, there really are no disadvantages other than it doesn't handle longer pieces of wood very well and I wish the price was a bit lower though. However, it is built with superior support and folds for easy set up and easy transport so it is worth the price tag.
