Amazon.com Review
Tired of transporting a bulky miter saw stand from one job site to the next? The DeWalt DW723 may be the answer. Lightweight and rugged, the all-aluminum stand measures a mere 5-1/2 feet out of the box and weighs in at just 38 pounds. However, when fully assembled, it can support boards up to 16 feet long and a full 400 pounds of weight. The key to its strength lies in the stand's retractable legs, which lock securely in place then tuck away when not in use, as well as its sliding cam-lock extensions, which provide a full 16 feet of length when assembled. A carrying handle makes the stand easy to transport when fully retracted. Just throw it in the back of your pickup and it's good to go. Assembly is quick and easy, too. We had ours up and running in a matter of seconds. Mounting brackets adjust to fit most miter saws, making this the ideal workspace for the professional or do-it-yourselfer on the go. --Carl Thress

Some Good Some Bad, March 27, 2003
Reviewer: Richard D Auman
This is a good product with some flaws.
The Good:
Very portable and fast and easy to set up.
It is stable (much more stable than it looks).
Long adjustable supports.
Flip stops are handy for repetitive cuts.
The price - quite reasonable when you look at the competition (or even the previous version of this stand).
The Bad:
The biggest problem is that the supports are just too small. Yes you can position the support 12' from the blade but there is no support in between. This is a problem when squaring the ends of 16' mdf moldings - they really sag. Cutting mdf moldings upright is even worse - a slight bend in this scenario results in the molding falling of the front or back of the support.
The supports adjust easily to match the height of your saw. The problem? Plan on adjusting them constantly because they will not stay put. Also the beams that the supports sit on have some wiggle room to allow them to slide in and out. At full extension the beam can be move as much as 3/4" up or down

My review is somewhat negative because I wanted potential buyers see both sides - all the glowing reviews hide some flaws. However, I still really love this stand. You can not beat the portability of this stand. The problems I have found have been solved in some other stands but those things are just huge beasts. The portability is far more important to me. Also the stiffer your material the better. The stand really shines for rough carpentry - where small variances with the stops don't matter, the height of the supports can be off a bit, and the material is straight enough to not fall off the support or sag in between. I have often cut 4 x 12's for headers (as long as 14') and the stand held the up perfectly.
Most of my grievances only arrise when using MDF moldings. The fact that I do so regularly is probably the biggest factor in my 3 star rating.
In case you were wondering - I'm a contractor and I have used this stand almost every day for about 18 months.

good things just get better, November 4, 2001
Reviewer: R. Hayes
How do you take a good product and make it better? Go back to the drawing board and that is what Dewalt has done. No longer do you have to buy accessories to get the stand to 16 feet and the tape system that was not that great has been erased off the new model. Unlike the first model where it cost more than the compound miter saw the new model is price in check. The price is alittle high at over two hundred dollars but when you get it and use it you will say that it was money well spent. Dewalt will no longer be making the old model but there is a company that makes a knock off and they sell it at Lowes and two hundred even. I tried to call this company but could never get a responce and they don't have a web site and didn't see any accessories to go with it so for 30 dollars more give me the new Dewalt improved model at Amazo.com where they have a web site and people to help if you need. Try this stand and you will be happy and it has a garrantee also.

Great stand for moving around, March 15, 2006
Reviewer: A. Lee

It's fast and easy to set up right out of the box, lightweight but solid and sturdy, and takes up little space when collapsed. I'm really impressed with the length that it extends out to, but just like many other reviews noted you lose support for the work piece when the arms are extended. It comes with two support arms that could be placed on one side of the saw, but that only works if you're just cutting a little off the end. After I purchased the stand, I decided to go back and order another 2 DW7232 support arms. If you only work with stiff material, you wouldn't need it, but if you're working with trim it helps to have the extra support.

Top Miter Saw Stand hands down!, March 15, 2006
Reviewer: J. S. Carr "family man" (Jersey Shore) - See all my reviews

This is the best miter saw stand on the market under $200, and better than some costing more! It can handle a 12" slide saw no problem, it's very stable. The overall length when the arms are extended is almost 16 feet! The arms can handle some weight, so you can use this stand for decking no problem. Sets up and breaks down very easily, and the handle makes for great portability. You won't find a more stable stand, so don't waste your money on anything less.

Great tool, March 15, 2006
Reviewer: Jeffrey R. Stifter "stify"

This stand is extremely well built along with being easy to use.
It is easy to setup, store and carry. Where my miterbox goes my stand now goes too. Highly recommended for anyone that does repitition cutting or cutting of long peices. Top quality...

     I worked in construction for 38  years installing Linoleum Floors, Formica Counter Tops, Ceramic Tile and lots and lots of Carpenter Work.  Now that I have put in my time at the trades I am selling tools because I believe after all the years using them, I am qualified to guide you in finding the right tool for the job.  -  Just for fun here's a picture of a couple of my trucks from my Floor Covering business, also a picture of my garage and my little dog called Marbles.  -  I will post notes here and there throughout the web site on tools and things that I think are important and/or solve problems, based on my experience.  -  When I was young it seemed impossible to finish a job successfully because there would be a part that just couldn't be done.  Later I discovered that when you have all the tools for the job the most difficult project goes smoothly.  -  Also lets face it, having a good set of tools is one of life's greatest pleasures.  Not only that but it is a great boost to your ego when you receive complements a job you have done.
