When it comes to comfortably using a miter saw, having a proper, dedicated stand is a must. Even though there are many manufacturers that offer such stands, without a doubt, the stands made by DeWalt are some of the best ones on the market.
A Quick Look at the Three DeWalt Miter Saw Stands
Before comparing the three stands, let’s take a brief look at each of the three models to see what their specifications are and so on.
DeWalt DWX723 Miter Saw Stand Review
The DeWalt DWX723 miter saw stand can hold up to 400 pounds of material.
This miter saw stand is robust and sturdy. Its heavy-duty construction makes it strong enough for most jobs. The four legs it stands on are tapered outwards to maximize support.
Even with the robustness, it can still be easily folded up and stored. It’s also worth noting that its aluminum construction makes it really light so it can be carried around the shop. The stand includes two mounting brackets that can be used as supports or stops.
All that said, the price is a little higher than you might expect.
DeWalt DWX724 Miter Saw Stand Review
The DeWalt DWX724 miter saw stand can hold up to 500 pounds of material – slightly more than the previous model on the list. The DWX724 model is also made of lightweight aluminum, with sturdy legs that can fold up. It can be easily maneuvered and stored.
The stand has extension lock levers which makes sure the stand has maximum support while you use it. It also features mounting brackets that can be used as material stops or supports.
This stand also boasts non-marring feet. This will keep your floors scratch and scuff-free while you move it. It sets up really quickly and breaks down just as quickly.
This stand tends to be a bit more expensive than similarly sized competing products. That said, it offers excellent quality.
DeWalt DWX726 Miter Saw Review
DeWalt’s DWX726 miter saw stand can hold up to 300 pounds of material. It is trading better rigidity of the frame and more maneuverability in exchange for lower weight capacity.
The DWX726 is the smallest model in this lineup. It is the only one on this list to have rolling wheels on the bottom. This makes moving and setting up your job even easier. It is also foldable with lock levers.
This stand is also expensive compared to other similar ones. Because of its advanced features – and in spite of its lowest capacity – it is generally the most expensive product on this list.
DWX723 vs. DWX724 vs. DWX726: Similarities
All three saw stands are made to be easily moved and transported. They are all foldable and have lock levers to make sure everything is in place before you start cutting. They also all provide a good design that can be used with all miter saws. This is an important detail. They aren’t specific to just one brand or model.
All three stands are more expensive than their competitors. But that’s because of the features and stability you get with each stand.
All three are constructed from lightweight aluminum. They feature adjustable rails that optimize the stand for your saw.
Of course, each of the three stands is easy to use, highly portable, durable, and very stable.
DWX723 vs. DWX724 vs. DWX726: Differences
The most noticeable difference between these three saw stands is their weight capacity. DWX723 can hold up to 400 pounds, DWX724 can handle 500 pounds, DWX726 caps out at 300 pounds.
The next big difference is their pillar length and length of material the stand can accommodate. DWX723 has a 60-inch pillar and allows for a 16-foot piece of material. DWX724 has a 40-inch pillar and accommodates 10-foot long pieces. Finally, DWX726 has a 32-inch pillar and can hold up to an 8-foot long piece of material.
The other difference is their size when folded. The 726 folds down to 17 x 59 inches. The 723 folds down to 6 x 70 inches. The 724 folds down to 8 x 44 inches. DWX723 weighs about 29 pounds, DWX724 weighs about 30 pounds, and DWX726 tips the scales at 67 pounds due to its more sturdy construction.
Which of the DeWalt Miter Saw Stands Should You Get?
There are a few key differences between the three miter saw stands on this list. Every one of these stands is a good pick and can be used with any miter saw. However, there are some things you can look at to make your decision-making process easier.
The first is the overall size of the material each stand can handle. If you are looking to maximize the length of the piece you can put on your new stand, you need to get the DWX723 model. As mentioned earlier, it allows for up to a 16-foot piece of material to be loaded.
Next consideration is how much weight you’ll be putting on the stand. In this lineup, the DWX724 stand wins in this category. It is rated to handle up to 500 pounds, more than the other two on this list.
Another thing that will help you make your decision is how easily the stand can move. Of course, all three stands can be folded up and carried, but what about moving them on the floor within your shop? The DWX726 has wheels that allow the user to move the stand around with very little effort. For that reason, it is the go-to for maneuverability.
If cost is the main factor, you want to avoid the DWX726. It is the most expensive stand on this list. The other two stands have a pretty comparable price, so either of those stands would be good.
Now let’s look at how easily each stand can be stored. All three stands fold up to make them easier to be stored, but the 723 model takes up the least amount of space, occupying a 6 x 70-inch envelope when folded. That means the DWX 723 is the easiest to store.
Another big consideration for these stands is how heavy they are. They’re all made of aluminum, so their weight shouldn’t be an issue. But even with that, there’s a 38-pound discrepancy between the lightest and heaviest table. The lightest table is DWX723, which weighs around 29 pounds.
With DeWalt being one of the leading power tool brands in the world, you can’t go wrong with either of the three stands. That’s regardless of whether you are using a saw made by the DeWalt or by one of the other brands.
Whether you choose the DWX723, DWX724, DWX726, or even one of the other – less popular – models will depend on a couple of things. Mainly, it will depend on the weight capacity you need for your work, as well as the length of the boards that you plan to work with.
