Editor's Review: Testing the Best Portable Tablesaws

review date: July 1, 2005

This model was our pick for best overall portable tablesaw. Soft start reduces circuit-breaker trips, and the electronic brake is a first-rate safety feature. The fence and side-extension support are smooth and solid. The stand is solid and ingeniously designed, requiring only one motion to fold and unfold. Slipping the saw into the back of an empty pickup is easy, but you'll need help lifting it up onto a pile of plywood. Also, while going up and down stairs, the stand can ride on the stair treads, possibly damaging finished treads if you're not careful. This saw has the best blade guard of any of the saws we tested. It is sturdy, rides up and down with the blade, flips back out of the way for blade changes or measurements, and doesn't interfere when cutting long miters.
