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 so impressive about this was the fact that it weighs only fifteen and half pounds. 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.

Pick any pieces that are lengthier than 7 feet and it will be too annoying to work with, which means you’ll be better off buying a dedicated saw stand such as the DEWALT DWX723 or DWX724.

But if you plan on using it to cut short wood pieces with your miter saw, then it’s a great buy. It 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.

You only have to fold the legs down, mount your saw to the stand’s 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, 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 it requires minimal space and it’s easily transported because for one, it’s already pretty light, and two, it even comes with a carrying handle. In addition, saw removal is a snap as all you have to do is engage the hand release brakes.

Does it only support DEWALT brand miter saws?

Fortunately, no! I’m sure it fits most saws on the market. If you check out the bracket, 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 miter saw by Hitachi (if I’m not mistaken), and he’s able to use it on the DWX725B without any problems. Yet another friend is currently using it for his PORTER-CABLE miter saw and again, it works absolutely fine.
