In spite of the many features present in this table saw from DeWalt, there are quite a few features that are not present. While they may not be a problem, some users may miss them. There is a storage space available in the DW744X table saw where you can keep your blades and spinners. However, a dedicated space for storing cord wrap and other similar items is absent. This can be a problem.

The motor, while powerful, is prone to overheat occasionally. This is generally due to the accumulation of the sawdust inside the aluminum shield. You can use the rubber extension that used as a cover for the blade on the bottom side. This can be used for attaching a shop so that the excess of sawdust is eliminated.
