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 Makita 2705X1 was our favorite Contractor Saws. That being said, there are a few other fantastic selections when it comes to Contractor Saws. We have the best of them in this article.

SawStop is another major producer of Saws. They produce the tool next up on our rundown. SawStop's Table Saws are great as well. I was excited to try out the model CNS175TGP36 and I was not disappointed!

This Table Saw is merely $2049.00. That is a terrific deal for a high quality Saw like the CNS175TGP36 by SawStop. The SawStop CNS175TGP36 is really a solid alternative. Of you are uncertain about our number one selection, I would pick this Saw.

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.
