This table saw cuts with ease. Being able to rip up to 24.5 inches has already come in very helpful in the first week of using it. Cutting plywood is easy even by yourself. Accurate cuts everytime once the gaurd is set up.
Excellent portable table saw. This thing is easy to raise, tilt, and lower blade. I utilize it on jobsites daily and in my home workshop. It's definitely not very heavy. I have hauled it back and forth 100 feet from my worksite to the truck numerous times. I like the sturdy stand. It's collapses easily and is lightweight.
Fence design is awesome, all you have to do is scroll to the correct width and the dual track eliminates any unlevelness that you might get with other fences. The blade guard snaps on and off by flipping a simple lever, which makes it easy to remove for certain cuts and then replace for other cuts. It's as easy (and fast) as flipping a light switch. A very handy feature!
Negative Customer Reviews
Questionable manufacturing quality: The fence and rack-and-pinion mechanism on the first saw were not even close to being adjusted correctly.
I have owned this saw for 3 years and I have constantly had to make adjustments to the rack and pinion "pillow blocks" that hold the rod, they are nothing but plastic in thin sheet metal and are prone to bending to the point where the fence will be 1/8" off from one end to another.
