Dewalt just announced several new jobsite work stands and miter saw stands that, quite frankly, look absolutely amazing. These new work and tool supports are designed with portability in mind, not to mention their lightweight and durable construction.
Four separate models are included in the launch, with all featuring screw-attached non-marring feet that won’t damage delicate floors, and locking legs for easier setup and break-down.
DWX723 Heavy Duty Miter Saw Stand
This new miter stand weighs 35 pounds and has a maximum load capacity of 500 lbs. It features a 5-1/2 ft beam with adjustable extensions that span 150-inches to support work pieces up to 16 ft long.
The heavy duty stand features quick-release universal miter saw mounting brackets that can attach anywhere along the stand’s rail. Additionally, this means that multiple saws can be supported by a single rail, probably with the purchase of additional mounting brackets. Material supports feature height adjustment and flip-up cut stops.
DWX724 Compact Miter Saw Stand
Featuring the same 500 lb load capacity as the heavy-duty stand, the compact version folds down to less than 4 ft long, and weighs in at 30 lbs. This version features the same quick-release mounting brackets and adjustable workpiece supports. The extensions can span 100-inches to support up to 10 foot long workpieces.
DWX725 and DWX725B Heavy Duty Work Stands
These heavy duty work stands feature steel and aluminum construction and a 36-inch long support surface with a 1/2-ton maximum load capacity. The stands fold down easily into a compact package for transport or storage, and are extremely portable at just 15 pounds. The “B” version includes universal mounting saw brackets.
MSRP: $89 and $119 for the “B” version
Dewalt is also releasing a line of accessories to complement the new miter saw and work stands. This includes miter saw mounting brackets, material supports, extension arm supports, a carrying strap, roller work support, and a wide material work support with cut stop.
The accessories are all expected to be available in April 2011. The work stands and accessories are covered by Dewalt’s 3-year limited warranty, 1-year free service, and 90-day money-back guarantee.

We might give one of these a try – we have the older Dewalt Miter Stands almost exclusively being used to support Bosch and Makita saws – and like the stands even though we never bought a Dewalt Saw
I went to a builder show yesterday (friday) and asked the dewalt rep about the saw horses. He said, “Miter horses”. Then he had to ask his partner about em. They didn’t even know about them yet.
That is pretty amusing, but not too surprising. It’s reasonable to assume that sales reps aren’t usually made aware of newly developed products until they’re actually available for sale.
If you have any specific questions about the work stands, I can relay them to Dewalt for you if I can’t answer them myself.
I own and use old DW723 Heavy Duty Miter Saw Stand for years with my Makita 1013 sliding saw and I’m very happy with it. Because I work alone I installed wheels on two legs so is easy to move it without removing saw from stand and I can avoid scratching installed hardwood, laminate – pushing it around.
Actually I don’t see real improvement in new model DWX723 Heavy Duty Miter Saw Stand.
Screw-attached non-marring feet is a good idea because on my older model was easy to lost it, so I glued it to stay in place. Legs locking mechanism change from push buttons to levers? I had no problem with push to open buttons, besides plastic levers can be broken easy as happen to one lever on arm of my saw support. Also don’t see much of improvement replacing extension locking knobs with levers. Only difference is faster locking I believe.
Any way I recommend new and old stand to any one if you have enough room for it in your vehicle. If not New DWX724 Compact Miter Saw Stand is perfect addition.
Those stands are so good that as I can see Bosch almost copy it.

– who wants to pay $90 – $120 for pair of work horses? I don’t.
Sorry for mistake I made in my previous review:
“DWX725 and DWX725B Heavy Duty Work Stands”
$90 – $120 is for one not a pair. No extension, no material support – seems price to step for me.
FYI. DWX725B sells at Home Depot now at $59
I’m still seeing a $90 price. Is the sale only available in stores?
