DeWalt track saw
Love this saw. The one thing I can’t get over is the speed of delivery and ease of ordering. When I went to order this saw no one had it in stock, except CPO. I was hesitant to order but am very very happy I did! I ordered on Thursday eve and it showed up on Saturday!
Can’t say enough, awesome service. Will order again in a heartbeat

Good saw but tracks are hit and miss
Good saw and overall system. Both tracks were not 100% true. While the 59" had less than a 1/32 bow at the worst point (about mid point) the 108" track had a 1/16 deflection at about 57" from one end. The crated box it came in was dropped hard; one corner was missing the mdf altogether (about a 1"X1" triangle).
Dewalt customer service is shipping me replacements, but it takes them 14 days to get them to my door.

Long Track Problems
The saw does not ride properly on the long track. It is as if the middle rail were higher the ne slot in the saw and , consequently, the saw wobbles. I have used the saw once with the short rai, but can't use it with the long rail. I took the rail to the service center and the were going to get me a new one. Now, apparently, they cannot get them. They must be having a problem with them-why else would they be out of stock? This has been going on for three weeks and still no results. Based on my present situation, I could not recommend this product. I have had occasions to use a Festool track saw. Their tracks and overall quality are far superior.

Works Great
The saw and tracks came promptly and well-packaged and were easy to setup. I did not worry about cutting the last 2 " or so of rubber on the tracks as it is not really needed anyhow. I agree with others that a center guide would be helpful. However, the tracks are long enough for 48" material while keeping both guides on the track. I have not used the longer one yet, but do not foresee any problems cutting 8' material. This is much quicker for cutting sheets than the old way of measuring for the straight edge position and then scoring the plywood along the cut line and finally making the cut. With the track saw simply position the edge on the cut line and make the cut as there is very minimal tear out.

Nice saw
i really like this saw. I somewhat limited shop space so this was a great alternative to cutting sheet goods on a table saw. Comfortable to use. Very clean edges. For the money it was worth it. The 102 inch track came packaged nicely, though it is a bit of a pain to store. Blades are pretty spendy.

Cutting like a champ!
Great saw and much less than the Festool. It is really quiet and accurate with a powerful motor so I can move quickly. It comes with a box but that was unclear in the item description so I was surprised. The clamps are a must but also worth the money.

Plunge Me
Very well packaged, the tracks came in hardboard boxes. All arrived in great order, saw case could have had a better foam block inside to hold saw in place. Great instruction card inside case. The blade cut very true and no splinters. I put down a 1" sheet of house foam, set the depth to a hair over 1/2" and put 1/2" ply down on foam. This saw screams plunge me. Very well designed. This is very portable, and no more lugging big sheets of ply up to table saw.. Great.

My best purchase to date
I've been looking at track saws for some time now and finally decided on the Dewalt and got both track lengths as well as the clamps. I'm glad I got the clamps as I had some 4' x 8' x 1/4" lauan plywood to cut both along the 8' length as well as the 4' and the clamps really helped with such floppy wood. The clamps helped keep the wood from bowing and allowed me to make perfectly straight cuts. When working alone this is an especially useful wood cutting tool. I should have bought this sooner but it will get a bunch of use now.

How does this compare to the Festool track saw?
chuck on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a DeWalt track saw and before I purchased it I had looked at Festool's track saw. If you are making a living doing carpentry maybe the Festool saw is for you. The DeWalt is a cheaper alternative and I have no complaints about it's accuracy or performance. I have built a houseful of cabinets with better accuracy than using a table saw.
How do. You secure the track? When cutting plywood
Thomas 1790 on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The track doesn't slip around, so often people will put light pressure and cut without clamping it down. Alternatively, there are clamps that can be purchased to work with the track. They slip into a channel on the underside of the track and hold it firmly to what you are cutting. They do work great and I recommend purchasing a pair when you invest in the track saw.
Will the saw be able to rip 2 inch wood
Frank on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I just ripped hard maple that was
2". I think the cutting depth at 90* is 2 1/4"-2 1/8".

Does this include an integrated riving knife?
Gregory on Dec 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this tool comes with an integrated riving knife.
Can the saw/track be calibrated for a perfect 90 degree edge?
chuck on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, the Dewalt track saw will max out at a 47 degree bevel.
Right & left handed saws ?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The track accommodates the Dewalt track saw which has the blade on the right side of the saw and track. Right or left handed user would make no difference in operation. This is my second Dewalt track saw and it is a great tool, especially if you buy the Dewalt router and track adapter.
Can this saw be used to cut granite?
