Stationary table saws are designed for ripping large pieces of wood, including breaking down sheet plywood, with high-performance motors and premium parts to offer the greatest cut capacity, stability and support. If you have a workshop and need a table saw that can stand up to frequent and demanding use, a stationary table saw is ideal.
Job site table saws come in two models — compact or contractor. Compact models are lightweight, generally don’t include a stand or wheel base, and are great for home renovations or on-the-go jobs. They are made to be transported easily and carried around on job sites.Contractor models give you a larger range of cutting capacity, more features and often have a collapsible scissored or wheeled stand that’s attached to the saw.
A saw with dado capacity allows you to add a dado blade for different kinds of wood working, such as cabinetry.
