It was really nice as well and hard to say which is better. This saw is heavy and having a helper or two is nice. Very well machined parts very well made. If you're off a little, it's off a little. The table has the capability to adjust to a level position.

DEWALT DW745 Final Thoughts
"It made a big difference."
The customer support at DEWALT was great. Worm drives are about torque but are not light. It is however, very practical for a small shop like mine. I will be installing that when I install the cast wings. The quality of all of the components is excellent.
