Took me 5 times longer than suggested. Granted I had a SawStop 744 before so not a fair comparison. This is my second SawStop table saw and I'm a happy customer. Cast iron table is very nice and heavy and solid. Loud and dusty, sure, but that is expected.

The truth is that the Makita 2705X1 was the Contractor Saws that we ranked at the top. That being said, there were a handful of other very premium Contractor Saws worth showcasing here that barely fell short.

The next in our tool break down is manufactured by SawStop which is a very highly regarded tool brand. SawStop's Table Saws are one of their top offerings. It was terrific to check out the CNS175TGP36. I was very happy using this tool!

This Table Saw is just $2049.00. That is a great deal for a premium Saw like the CNS175TGP36 by SawStop. If you uncertain about our number one choice, I'd check out the SawStop CNS175TGP36 next. It's a premium quality tool at a great price.

Besides the selections we covered already, I would evaluate the SawStop CNS175-SFA30 and the 36-5052 by Delta. Both these tool manufactures are considered some of the top makers of high quality Saws. Each of these two options enjoy very good buyer reviews as well. The SawStop advertises a score of 2.8/5 as contrasted against the 3.8/5 star rating received by the 36-5052 by Delta.

The CNS175-SFA30 by SawStop provides several very choice features such as Item may ship in more than one box and may arrive separately. The Delta 36-5052 by comparison, is tough to beat featuring N/A plus Item may ship in more than one box and may arrive separately.

It rips completely effortlessly, dados like butter. Speaking of tracks, the width of mine vary by. Ok, now for a slightly more in depth review. It doesn't slow down under very heavy loads. I've been happy with it since the purchase.

Does Everything with ease and consistent accuracy. It's durable plastic, but still plastic. So with such a glowing review why only four stars. The major problem I had was assembling the saw on the stand. The quality of all of the components is excellent.

It rips completely effortlessly, dados like butter. So far I love this little tyke of a saw. I also purchased the Rikon dado insert. Adjustments were easy and this saw works extremely well. Oak, maple, even had to cut some soaking wet Ponderosa pine.
