Table Saw Comparison Table
You’ll notice that the table saw comparison table doesn’t include contractor or hybrid type saws, this is because these days the portable type table saws are more popular among people new to woodworking in particular. You can find contractor and hybrid saws in the menu above.

Types of Table Saws
When it comes to buying a table saw, you likely thought that you could jump in and buy just about any product and assume that it’ll do the job that you’re looking for. However, that couldn’t be further from the case. There’s actually a good few key types of table saw and picking the right one for you is of paramount importance.
With that in mind, whether it’s a portable saw, contractor saw, cabinet saw, or hybrid saw, we’ve put together a summary of some of the most popular table saw types.
Portable Table Saws
As you’ll be able to tell from our table saw reviews, the different types of table saw are largely targeted at different types of users. If you’re likely going to need to transport your table saw around from site to site, it’s a portable table saw that you’re going to want to opt for. It’s pretty clear that the portable variation of table saw is designed with maneuverability in mind, meaning you can just pack it up with your kit and leave.
That being said, because of their portability, you’ll find that this type of table saw tends to be less powerful than other more permanent saws. This is because they have less power and less noise muffling too, so you’ll find them to be louder. What’s more, because of that aforementioned lack of power, you might find that you’re unable to use the law to cut through certain materials. This shouldn’t put you entirely off a portable table saw though. For many users, they offer the best of both worlds and provide the complete sawing experience that they need from their table saw. Portable Table Saws
Before buying though, keep the aforementioned points in mind and make sure to pay careful attention to the table saw reviews you read.
Contractor Table Saws
If the aforementioned portable table saw is largely targeted at homeowners and those simply looking to complete the odd job, we’d definitely argue that a contractor table saw is aimed at well, contractors who need to transport their saw. You’ll find that a contractor table saw does offer some degree of portability, whilst still managing to maintain some of a complete table saw. With that in mind, some users describe this as the perfect sweet spot when it comes to table saws, offering a nice combination between power and portability.
It’s worth remembering that contractor table saws are still going to be pretty portable because they’re designed to be used by contractors. That being said, unlike portable table saws, they don’t necessarily fold up into a compact position. This is largely because contractors tend to have the facilities needed in order to transport a larger bit of kit. The extra space that they take up in comparison to a portable table saw means that contractor table saws are able to offer a greater level of power and precision. Both of these points further support the fact that contractor table saws sit in the middle ground.
Cabinet Table Saws
If you’re looking to squeeze the most possible power out of your table in terms of both strength and precision, it’s a cabinet table saw that you’re looking for. They’re what’s seen as a traditional table saw and the variety that most professional wood cutters use on a day to day basis. However, as the name suggests, this raw power and precision comes at the cost of portability. It’s pretty clear that cabinet table saws are designed to sit in one place and be used as a tool within a workshop environment.
When it comes to the type of wood that you can cut through with a cabinet table saw, you can purchase one in confidence of the fact that you’ll be able to cut just about any type of wood. That being said, as a general rule, you’ll find that the more expensive cabinet table saws offer great strength and flexibility. However, in terms of the pricing of table saws, you’ll definitely find that they can become pretty expensive. This is no surprise though really, especially when you take into consideration the fact that cabinet table saws are designed solely to be used within a professional environment.
Hybrid Table Saws
The last type of table saw that we believe is worth mentioning on this page is something of a wildcard product. That’s because it’s not as widely known about as the other three table saw types that we’ve discussed, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t be the perfect option to suit what you’re looking for. Hybrid table saws are a type of table saw designed to plug the pretty large gap in terms of power and price between the aforementioned contractor table saw and traditional cabinet table saws.
With that in mind, you can likely imagine that hybrid table saws are perfect for those looking for greater power than that offered by a contractor table saw, but don’t fancy paying anything around the price of a cabinet table saw. At the same time, whilst hybrid table saws are nowhere near as portable as some of the aforementioned options, you should still be able to find that they can be transported when necessary. When it comes to the middleman of table saws, that’s a title truly deserved by the hybrid variety. In all, if you’re looking for a bit more power than that offered by a contractor table saw but don’t fancy paying the price of a cabinet variety, this is an option well worth your looking at.
Table Saw Brands
The market for table saws is one that’s incredibly varied and that’s something that you’ve likely already noticed from just one look at the different table saw types. Reading on into our table saw reviews and you’ll notice that there’s also a range of different brands offering table saw products. But which brand is best for you? With so many of them available, it’s hard to understand the difference and make a choice over the best brand for you.
Some of the key table saw brands included Dewalt, Bosch, Makita and Ryobi. You’ll notice that we’ve featured a number of these brands across our table saw reviews. You’ll also find that these different brands offer something very different in terms of their features and functionality. With that in mind, we’ve put together a comprehensive summary of those brands on this very page and you’ll find more detailed information about them across the website and also information about choosing the best brand of table saw for you.
If you’ve purchased a power tool in the past, Dewalt are a name that you’ve likely already heard of and that’s no surprise considering the standard of their products. They’ve been designing and manufacturing some of the world’s best power tools for well over 90 years, so you can likely imagine that you’re going to be in safe hands buying a table saw of any kind from Dewalt. It is worth mentioning though that Dewalt’s products are largely targeted at professional contractors and those within the building industry. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t find a product in their range that’s suited to your needs.
If you think that a Dewalt table saw sounds like the best option for you, you’ll want to take a look at the range of different Dewalt products that we’ve reviewed as part of our table saw reviews. As aforementioned, they have products designed for a number of different uses, so you should find one that works well for you.
Bosch are a German manufacturer that you may have already heard of from their kitchen and other home appliances. However, you might not be aware of the fact that they also design and manufacture a range of table saws. In fact, you’ll find that we’ve included a Bosch product in our table saw reviews because of the quality that their brand emits.
If you already own one or more power tool products in Bosch’s range, then you should find that your table saw works comfortably with that. It’s also worth mentioning that Bosch have clearly targeted their power tool products at the general audience, more so than Dewalt who as we’ve already mentioned have designed their products for professionals. Either way, you’ll find that both brands similarly and comfortably offer a good quality cutting experience through their ranges of table saws.
When it comes to Japanese engineering, Makita are known as a name to be trusted. With that in mind, you can likely imagine what the Makita names in the eastern world, but that doesn’t mean that their products aren’t well suited for use in the United States and other western countries too. The company was formed from a small shop in Nagoya, back in 1915 and since then has expanded across the globe, selling their products in over 150 countries, but still managing to maintain their ethos of good quality.
With the above taken into consideration, you can likely imagine why we’ve decided to throw Makita in as one of the best table saw brands you’ll find. Across this website, you should come across a number of reviews around Makita’s products and it’d be well worth your time reading them if you’re looking for Japanese quality engineering in your table saw.
The final brand that’s definitely worth a mention when it comes to evaluating the brands we’ll be featuring in our table saw reviews is Ryobi. They’re largely known for manufacturing components for use in the automobile, electronics and telecommunications industry. However, they’ve more recently branched out into their own range of power tools and other hardware related tools, including table saws. With that taken into consideration, from our experience of Ryobi’s products, we’d definitely say that they’re a brand well worth keeping your eye on.
At the same time, it’s also worth mentioning that Ryobi offer some of the most affordable products that we’ve seen from many table saw manufacturer. If you don’t particularly fancy shelling out some of the high prices that both Dewalt and Bosch are selling their products for, looking into the range offered by Ryobi might save you a serious amount of cash.
Table Saws – Factors to take into Consideration
When it comes to buying a table saw, it goes without saying that you’re going to want to get the best quality product possible for your money. With that in mind, before taking a look at our table saw reviews, it’s worth taking a look at some of the factors you should take into consideration when purchasing the perfect table saw.
It’s important to get it right when you’re buying a table saw, so make sure that you product that you purchase matches up with many of the features that we’ve discussed below.
Table Saw Safety Measures
Table saws are pretty complicated pieces of kit and because of that, you can likely imagine that they’re also pretty dangerous at the same time. This is especially the case if you’re using a table saw for the first time. With that in mind, you’ll want to make sure that your table saw features appropriate safety features when buying. There’s nothing worse than falling victim to one of the many accidents that happen every single year as a result of using a table saw.
In terms of the safety features that you’re going to want to look for in your table saw, one of the most prominent includes a flesh sensor. This is basically designed so that the table saw will immediately stop operating after 0.01 seconds of coming into contact with flesh. This means that if the worst should happen and you come into danger as a result of using a table saw, the damage will be kept to a minimal. As you can likely imagine, this particular safety feature will push up the price of the table saw by a small amount, but it’s definitely a feature that’s worth happening if you value your safety whilst using power tools.
Table Saw Horsepower
When it comes to actually using your table saw, you’re going to want it to pack some serious punch in order to saw through materials. The power of most table saws is measured using the horsepower scale. With that in mind, you can likely imagine that products on the market vary in terms of their horsepower measurement. Undeniably, you can imagine that this horsepower will vary depending on the type of table saw that you opt with, how much you’re spending on the table saw and you might also find it to be the case that different brands have a different horsepower that they opt for in their products.
If you’re looking for one of the most powerful products on the market, you’ll find those such options within the 3-5 horsepower range. As you can likely imagine, these are products largely targeted at professionals looking to use their table saw on a day to day basis. If you’re a hobbyist or occasional contractor who doesn’t necessarily want to shell out a fortune on a table saw, you should find that between 1-2 horsepower does the job.
Table Saw Blade Sizes
Continuing our discussion into the power of table saws, there’s another key contributing factor to that power and that’s the blade size. You should find that this blade size determines what you’re able to cut through using your table saw and the thickness of the materials that you’re able to cut through. In all, if you’re looking for a good all round blade size that just works comfortably, you’ll find anything within the 12 inch range to do the job. In fact, most table saws that we’ve seen for commercial sale feature this blade size.
If wood cutting is something that you’re going to be doing every day and you plan on needing a tool that can provide heavy duty results, your best option might be to look up the scale at table saws with a blade size of well over 12 inches. In all though, we’ve found that day to day use with a 12 inch blade is pretty easy and it won’t break the bank either. Just as with the power of the table saw, you’ll need to carefully consider the blade size before picking the right option for you. With so much variation between the products on the market, it’s important to choose the blade size that’s right for you.
This next factor to take into consideration when it comes to buying a table saw is more of a safety feature but one that you’ll want to look for in every table saw. It’s basically an automatic switch that turns of the table saw when you walk away. It’s often the case with some cheaper table saws that when you’ve finished using the table saw and forget to flick the power switch, the unit will remain on. This leaves anyone who goes near the table saw open to a considerable amount of danger.
Table saws with an automatic switch basically have a magnet that turns the saw off when you walk away from it. This means that you have to actually flick the switch to turn the saw back on before you can start using it again. This might sound like something of an inconvenience at first, but you’ll quickly find that it could just save your life when you’re using your table saw. If you’re keeping the saw in the family home where children may be able to access, it goes without saying that an automatic switch is a must.
Table Saw Dust Collection
Whether you’re using your table saw on the go or in the workshop at the back of your house, the last thing you want is for dust to get everywhere when you’re using it. With that in mind, you’re going to want to look for a product that features appropriate dust collection functionality. This might sound like a pretty basic ask out of your table saw, but you’d be amazed to see just how much dust they can generate.
For some table saws, a dust collection system is just a bag that collects the dust generated from your table saw. This might do the job perfectly well for many novice table saw users, whilst others might benefit from a more sophisticated dust collection system. Either way, it’s of paramount importance to make sure that you pick up any dust generated by your table saw, as it could be dangerous in the long term to both you and your family.
Ease of Use
The final key factor that you’ll want to take into consideration when picking the right table saw is just how easy that table saw is to use. Obviously for experienced table saw users, ease of use might not be something that is so much of a big deal, but if this is going to be your first table saw, it’s definitely something that you’ll want to look out for. The last thing you want is to purchase a brand new table saw and find that you can’t use it.
In all, just make sure you choose a table saw that’s not overly complicated and features a nice easy to read manual that will help you get started. Crucially, make sure that the table saw doesn’t require any specialist knowledge to set up and is generally easy to do so.
Table Saw Buying Advice
Table Saw Reviews
As aforementioned, across this website, you’ll find a number of table saw reviews designed to assist you in choosing the right table saw. If you’re looking to find a quick rundown of the best table saws on the market, you’ll find that in the individual table saw reviews on this page.
The first of those products is the DEWALT DW745 10-Inch Compact Job-Site Table Saw; Amazon’s number one best seller in table saws. That’s no surprise considering the fantastic range of features that you’re going to be getting your hands on here.
15 Amp Motor – If there’s one thing that you’ll learn from this website’s table saw reviews, it’s than I order to for a table saw to be effective, it needs to be pretty powerful. With an included 15 amp motor, we can quite comfortably say that this particular product meets that specification. In fact, you should find that the motor is able to easily rip through hardwoods and just about any other type of wood.
Whilst it may not be the case that you actually need the pure power offered by the DEWALT DW745, it certainly couldn’t hurt to have the option there.
Easy Fence Adjustment – One of the most common uses of the average table saw is to make quick adjustments to wooden items like fences. If you’re planning on using this particular table saw to make such adjustments to your fencing, you’ll be pleased to hear that the rack and pinion fence rails of the DEWALT DW745 allow for quick and easy adjustment of just about any wooden fence. In all, it goes without saying that you’re going to want your table saw to be as quick and effective as possible in what it does and we can comfortably say that this product meets that spec here.
Adjustable Blades – It goes without saying that you’re going to want to use your table saw to cut a variety of different types of wood and materials. However, it also goes without saying that each of these materials won’t be exactly the same.
With that in mind, you’ll be pleased to hear that the DEWALT DW745 offers completely adjustable blades. This means that you change the blades between 0 and 45 degrees in order to properly apply bevels. In the long term, you’ll definitely find that this strong level of adjustment comes in incredibly handy.
DEWALT DW745 Pros:
- The bestselling product in Amazon’s range of table saws, which tells you something about the quality of product you’re going to be getting with the DEWALT DW745.
- The compact, job-site design of the table saw, means that you’ll be able to comfortably transport the table saw between jobs that you’re working on.

- Built and designed within the United States, meaning you can trust that this is a table saw designed to be used by the US market and also ensuring good quality.
- Weighing in at only 45lbs, this is definitely one of the lightest table saws that we’ve come across, which will be especially useful if you plan on carrying this saw with you.
DEWALT DW745 Cons:
- Compact size of the table saw leaves little space for proper insulation. Because of this, you might find the product to be considerably louder when in use than some of the larger table saws available.
- Built and designed exclusively for the US market, which means international customers may not find it works with their specifications.
DEWALT Table Saw. DW745. Awesome Machine! Video
Just one look at this next of our table saw reviews and a product from Bosch and you’ll notice that this is quite clearly a product that’s designed to be portable. This is pretty clear from the fact that the table saw is built with Bosch’s innovative gravity-rise stand, which offers the perfect space for both using and moving your table saw.
If you’re looking to find out more about Bosch’s signature table saw, you’ll definitely want to read on into this review, where we’ll take a look at its features, pros and cons.
Innovative Gravity Rise Sand – When it comes to the features of Bosch’s 4100-09 table saw, there’s clearly only one place to start and that’s with the Gravity Rise Stand that comes as part of the package here. This is basically a stand that can be intelligently adjusted to your liking and then wheeled away when you’re finished using the table saw. It’s a pretty innovative idea from Bosch and definitely one of the best stands that we’ve seen included with any table saw that we’ve reviewed or on the market.
Designed to be Portable – In case you hadn’t already gathered from the above section, this is a table saw from Bosch that is clearly designed to be portable. If you’re going to need a table saw that can be moved on and off of a worksite with little effort, you’ll definitely find that to be the case with the Bosch 4100-09 and it’s included Gravity Rise Stand.
With that taken into consideration, you’d likely imagine that this table saw falls under the category of a portable saw and it does. However, we wouldn’t say that the power of the table saw exactly matches that spec, as you’ll find below.
3,650 Rotations Per Minute – As you’ll find above in this page, portable table saws tend to be a little less powerful than well, their less portable counterparts. However, the 3,650 rotations per minute offered by this 10-inch table saw allow for both high precision and incredibly powerful cutting. Plus, with a rotations per minute of 3,650, you’ll find the product to be considerably faster at cutting just about anything. If you care about how portable your table saw is, but don’t fancy compromising on speed and power, you wouldn’t be mistaken for thinking that the Bosch 4100-09 truly has it all.
Bosch 4100-09 Pros:
- Nice to see the table saw actually includes a stand that can be used to hold the saw and transport it when not in use. Not only that, but the gravity rise technology makes this one of the most effective table saw stands that we’ve seen.
- Offering 3,650 rotations per minute, it’s pretty clear that whilst this is a table saw designed to be portable and flexible, it doesn’t compromise on speed or power. Sounds like the perfect all round option when it comes to table saws, does it not?
- Includes Bosch’s comprehensive 1 year warranty, which vows to repair or replace your product if something goes wrong within the 1 year period. That should definitely give you a good deal of peace of mind when using the table saw.
Bosch 4100-09 Cons:
- The high price of this Bosch table saw signifies that you’re going to be paying for that aforementioned gravity rise stand. That might be perfectly fine if you can see yourself using the stand, but for anyone else it’s going to be a waste of money. We’d recommend considering whether you need that stand or not before buying here.
Both of the products that we’ve featured so far in our top table saw reviews have clearly been targeted at the higher end of the market and that’s signified by their high price point. With that in mind, we think it’s worth including a cheaper table saw that’s clearly targeted at not so much professional contractors and more just hobbyists. That’s where this product from Ryobi comes in. Whilst it doesn’t offer much of the same power and flexibility as the options from Bosch and Dewalt, it might just do the job.
Affordable Price Point – The price of the product is something that you’ll want to carefully consider when it comes to buying a table saw. This is largely because different people have different budgets to work with. Coming in at well under $100, you can likely imagine that this table saw from Ryobi comes in at the lower end of the market and for that low price point, you are going to have to make some compromises in terms of power and speed. However, occasional hobbyists should find that this table saw still gets the job done well.
Lightweight Design – Because this is a table saw that’s clearly targeted at the hobbyist market and those without a lot of money to spend, you can imagine that it’s also designed to be easily transported. One of the key factors contributing towards that easy transportation is the lightweight design of the product.
Weighing in at just under 60 pounds, this is definitely one of the lightest table saws that we’ve come across and it’s clear that Ryobi have achieved this by using a serious of cheaper and for the most part, plastic based materials.
Included Steel Stand – When you take into consideration the price of this table saw, you likely didn’t imagine that Ryobi would have includes a stand as part of the package. However, you’d be wrong to think that. Included with the Ryobi ZRRTS10G is a full steel stand that is designed specifically for use with this table saw.
If you don’t fancy shelling out a fortune for a stand to go with your table saw, you’ll find a good option here. What’s more, the stand is designed with heavy duty steel for added durability. Despite its low price, this is still clearly a product that’s designed to last.
Ryobi ZRRTS10G Pros:
- Undeniably one of the most affordable table saws that we’ve taken a look at on our website or on the market in general. Those looking for a table saw that they can use occasionally will definitely find a valid option in Ryobi’s table saw.
- Because this is a table saw that’s targeted at hobbyists and those looking to casually cut wood, you can likely imagine that this is a pretty portable option. That’s helped largely by the lightweight design that features heavily on the Ryobi.
- Whilst most cheap table saws don’t tend to include their own stand, you’ll be both surprised and pleased to hear that this one does. Not only that, but the included stand is actually made with steel and of generally really good quality.
Ryobi ZRRTS10G Cons:
- As you’d likely expect, the cheap price point of this table saw does of course mean that you’re not going to be getting an incredibly powerful product here. However, it’s worth remembering that occasional and hobbyist users might not actually need this power and would benefit from the savings instead.
- This clearly isn’t a product designed for precision work and generally isn’t very accurate in terms of cutting.
For the next of our table saw reviews, we’re yet again returning to an offering from DEWALT. However, this DWE7491RS model comes in at a slightly higher price point than DEWALT’s options and because of that, you can likely imagine that this is a table saw largely targeted at professional contractors and regular users.
For that price though, you’re going to be getting one of the most feature intensive pieces of kit on the market and you should find that it comfortably meets all of your cutting needs.
Large Cutting Capacity – When you’re working as a professional, it goes without saying that you’re generally going to need to cut a number of different sizes of wood. From look at this product, it’s pretty clear that DEWALT definitely understand this. The table saw features a 32.5 rip capacity, which is designed to easily cut through a variety of different shelving and trim materials, whether they be large or small. It might not be the case that you instantly need the ability to cut larger materials, but it definitely couldn’t hurt to have the option.
15 Amp Motor – You’ve likely noticed that the power of motor used by DEWALT in their table saws sits at a pretty consistent 15 amp. That’s no surprise though really, when you take into consideration exactly what a 15 amp motor is able to achieve. In all, we’d say that it provides pretty much as much power you’re going to need. What’s more, this power coupled with high precision allows the table saw to easily rip through just about any hardwood. You’d struggle to find a table saw that pumps out quite as much power.
Dust Collection Port – Using any table saw is guaranteed to generate an awful lot of dust and anyone who suffers from asthma will know this to be a big problem. With that in mind, it’s nice to see that DEWALT have taken precautions to allow you to properly extract dust when using your table saw. This is through the product’s 2-1/2-inch dust extraction port that allows you to quickly and easily connect a vacuum for efficient dust extraction. If you’re going to be regularly using your table saw, you’ll definitely notice the advantage of having dust automatically extracted out of the environment for you.
DEWALT DWE7491RS Pros:
- 15 amp motor definitely makes this one of the most powerful table saws that we’ve reviewed or just on the market. This is coupled with high precision cutting blades to make for one of the most effective table saws that you’ll come across.
- Not only is this table saw powerful when it comes to cutting but it also allows you to cut large pieces of material. This is helped by the table’s 32.5 rip capacity, which means that you should be able to comfortably cut just about any hardwood.
- If you’re asthmatic or just worried about breathing in dust whilst using your table saw, you’ll definitely want to take advantage of the product’s dust collection port, which allows for efficient dust extraction.
- Features a rolling stand that provides a place for the table saw to sit in and at the same time can be rolled away when the table isn’t in use.
DEWALT DWE7491RS Cons:
- It’s pretty apparent that you’re paying for the DEWALT name here. We’ve seen other products with similar specifications from other manufacturers that cost considerably less. With that in mind, you’ll want to decide whether or not you fancy paying a high price for what is essentially just a name.
We’ve approaching the end of the table saw reviews on this page and we’ve selected the GTS1031 10-Inch Portable Jobsite Table Saw from Bosch to conclude those reviews. Our reasoning behind choosing this particular saw is largely because it offers a good all round selection of functionality. As you’ll find over the course of this review, this is a table saw that provides portability, flexibility, power and more. It may not excel in all of those areas but if you’re stuck for choice when it comes to a table saw, this’ll get the job done.
One Handed Portability – As we’ve already mentioned in the opening section of this review, Bosch have been sure to include a good level of portability with this table saw. That’s so much the case with this product that it actually offers one handed portability. That’s right, the unit is so compact that it can actually be carried with one hand.
We’ve seen some pretty portable table saws during our time reviewing products in this range, but Bosch have definitely taken it one step further here. If you’re looking for ultimate portability in your table saw, there’s no need to look any further.
Durable Steel Design – With this being such a portable product from Bosch, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s pretty flimsy when it comes to design. However, that couldn’t be further from the case with the Bosch GTS1031’s durable and unique all-steel base. This is a design that’s clearly built to take on abuse. That’s definitely peace of mind that you’ll want to have when it comes to using this table saw in a working environment. Not that you shouldn’t be careful where possible when it comes to using your new table saw.
Self-Aligning Accuracy – As well as power in your table saw, you’re also going to want it to be as accurate as possible. We can comfortably say that this table saw from Bosch achieves that formidably with its self-aligning accuracy. This basically means that the square lock rip fence aligns itself for accurate performance. If you’re going to be using your table saw regularly and know that you need to get the job done correctly, this will provide it.
The best bit is, the price of this table saw doesn’t exactly go up when you factor in the point that it includes self-aligning accuracy.
Bosch GTS1031 Pros:
- This table saw does the best job at bringing together the best of all worlds, including power, accuracy and portability. With that in mind, this is going to be the best all round table saw that you can get your hands on.
- Whilst the product offers a range of fantastic features, it still manages to come in at a price point that’s less than Bosch’s other table saws.
Bosch GTS1031 Cons:
The incredibly portable design of the table saw doesn’t allow for much insulation or sound muffling. With that in mind, you’re going to find this to be a pretty loud table saw and may wish to invest in some earplugs or ear protectors.
These are only a few of the products that you’ll find we’ve reviewed across the website. If you still haven’t found your perfect table saw, we can guarantee that you’ll find a product that works for you by exploring our table saw reviews. We know that everybody’s needs are different when it comes to table saws, which is why we’ve reviewed a range of products.
There’s a lot more to picking a good table saw than you might think, so it’s important to make sure that you choose a product with appropriate features for you.

Different Types of Table Saw
Table saws that can be found on the market are designed for different uses. There are four types that these table saws can be listed under. There are Portable saws, contractor saws, hybrid and cabinet saws. When exploring the possibility of a new saw you will need to understand what each of these mean and how each saw performs in their perspective class.
Portable Table Saw
Portable table saws are made to easily transport, making them a perfect utility saw for carpenters. Portable saws function exactly the way a big table saw works. The difference is the portable table saw does not have the huge motor as the types of saws. Because they use the smaller motor, they are not as powerful and are also loud. They are less durable and are not as stable as the larger saws. One good suggestion for a portable table saw is the Ryobi Table Saw.
Contractor Table Saw
The first contractor saws were made to be portable so they could be taken to job sites. These are also lightweight and priced low enough that the handy homeowner can use them. When purchasing the contractor saw there, you will have to make a few concessions. The table is not made of the cast iron top and the extensions are usually made of stamped medal. It is not made as burly as more costly saws. The motor also hangs off the back, which makes it easier to remove when moving the saw to another job site. Bosch table saws are reported to be one of the best budget saws available.
Cabinet Table Saw
A cabinet table saw is so named because it has an enclosed style base. This saw is the opposite of the contractor saw. Cabinet table saws are designed to be functional and lasting to meet the qualifications that are required by people who work with wood for a living. They are constructed to be more durable than contractor saws. Makita table saw offers many popular options at a very affordable price.
Hybrid Table Saw
In 1999, a Dewalt table saw came out that was considered one of the first hybrid saws. They are made with strong motor parts and the drive system is more advanced. The substantial trunnions in most hybrid saws are attached to the bottom of the saw to make the blade and the miter slit meet exactly and easier. These are much smaller than the cabinet saws.
When considering the type of saw you need for your projects, think about the type of work you want it to do, how much time will be used, the amount of money you want to spend and how much room you will have in your shop for it. If you are only a weekend woodworker and only work an hour or so each time you use it while doing small craft projects the cabinet saw may be a perfect option for you. However, if you own a small woodworking shop and will be working many hours every day with the saw the hybrid would probably be more suited.
