DeWalt introduces the new model DWE7499GD job-site table saw with the company’s Guard Detectfeature.
This is the fourth model in DeWalt’s new line of job-site table saws. The guard on the saw must be installed in its proper position for the unit to be turned on or the user must activate an override switch to use the unit without the guard installed. When the guard is not in its proper position, an LED light flashes to warn the user of that condition, according to DeWalt.
“DeWalt developed the Guard Detect feature to further enhance our safety warnings to use the guard whenever it can be used,” product manager Jason Ducker said in a statement. “Guard Detect requires user interaction with the tool and the user’s awareness of the guard position before they perform cutting applications.”
Thesaw will retail for $749.
