This seems like a great deal to me so I am posting.

When you buy the saw, they throw in the 32-1/2 in. x 60 in. Rolling Miter Saw Stand for free...
Model # DWX726

This is the stand..

They are calling it the "DeWalt PBF Promo"

QA note: Link to purchase combo online [homedepot.com]


To sweeten the pot, they give you $25 off if you sign up for the Home Depot card. (Which I suppose you can get for anything in this price range)

And to sweeten the pot a little further, because I signed up for the card, the cashier was able to knock another $25 off. I have no idea how she did it...and I was not going to argue.

This brings the Saw and the Rolling stand down to $349 + tax.

But..since the last $50 seems to hinge on the card, I left it out of the Title.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

The motors are different and the 780 is 5 lbs heavier. Specs on what they can do are the same, but the writer thinks that there is something more to it. It's about $80 to add the light. I'm going to wait another 8 days for the 780 with the free 723 stand for $109 more.
Thanks repped. Was skimming thru while getting kids to bed. Lowes usually has the 780 combo with stand every year around thanksgiving.

This guys says that the 779 and the 780 are not the same saw inside. Just an FYI.
Personally, I'm holding out for the 780 even though it's way overkill for me.

Thank you for sharing that comparison. For anyone debating between the 779 and 780, I'd recommend reading the WHOLE article to avoid misinformation. It's not long.

I thought about trying to exchange mine, but those at the store had the same issue and I was told that these should really be considered as construction saws and not for fine work. Congratulations on using yours daily, maybe the amount of slop you have just doesn't bother you, but I have other saws to use when I need to make an accurate cut.

Unless I also missed something the author calls out that there is nothing substantiating the claims that it has different internals. Until someone dies a teardown of each we won't know. Even then a newer version of either might have a slightly different set up. I have this same and stand am very happy with it as a homeowner that doesn't have to lug it around.

Regarding this review: https://www.tooltally.com/dewalt-...vs-dws780/


Do They Use Different Motors?
At first glance, the motors are both 15 amp motors with 3,800 RPMs. But when you shop replacement motors, a discrepancy pops up: the two motors are not interchangeable. This has created several online forum discussion about the difference in motor quality, with assumptions made that the 779 uses lower-quality windings and bearings inside the motor.
There is nothing that I can find to substantiate those claims. The Dewalt DWS780 seems to use a slightly different mount and an added adapter for connecting it to the XPS light. Based on my research these motors seem to be very similar and of the same quality.

But I've Seen Different Specifications Online!

There are some small differences in the specifications online. For example, the weight seems to be listed as different, with the DWS779 typically listed as having a 5 pound or more weight difference.
From what I can tell, these seem to be more related to either the weight of the packaging or simply a staff error when inputting the specifications.


Yeah, the only difference between the two saws is the XPS light.... There's multiple other review sites that say the same thing...

He's actually saying they are the same saw. The only real difference being the kerf light which you can buy a OEM kit from mmtool for roughly $65 to add it to the 779. He also mentioned that the motor has a different part number but the specs are the same and there is no evidence that they are different with the exception of the mounting brackets on the motors.

Just did the same thing since there's a 90-day free return policy if you don't open it. Slickdeals - buy first, think later. Also, don't forget 5% cashback if you pay through PayPal using Chase Freedom. 🙃

I have this combo, and as others said the slider is very heavy almost requiring this sort of stand. Unfortunately this set up never makes it into the truck due to its size.. Always end up grabbing the 12 or 10 compound and a 4ft foldout table.
For those mentioning accuracy, the 12" blade has flex, and the slider mechanism has a tiny amount of give. Cutting through soft or thin material will most likely be accurate, but thicker plies or hardwood might cause it to deviate ever so slightly. Same reason I use a 10" blade on my 12" tablesaw.
If I could only buy one saw, this with the xps shadow system would be at the top of the list.

I originally disagreed on the 1/8 slop. I have the same saw, mounted to my bench and adjusted for square. When attempting to cut 16" strips of 3/4" bamboo ply, I get up to 1/8 inch deviation at full extension. Blade flex accounts for roughly half. At the same time, it doesnt get all that much harder then 3/4" finished bamboo ply. Cuts through softwood at a quick pace, almost 100% accurate. If I had to pick only one saw, this would be it. (+ shadow kit).
