I, too, found myself in wanting a slider for wider woods. So I sold my old DW705 and scored a DW718. Haven’t looked back. A fine saw.

My only issue with the DW718 is Dewalt’s sorry attempt at dust control. It’s pretty pathetic. But the saw does everything I have asked it to do otherwise. The saw comes with a number of presets that were spot on right out of the box. To control the dust I just put a larger dust port on the bottom of the enclosure I had made for the 705.

Sometimes the big blue box store will include the Dewalt stand for free.

Happy shopping.
