Editor's Review: 6 Great Miter-Saw Stands
review date: September 1, 2007
The Ridgid AC 9941 is a great stand for a low price. The biggest improvement in this newly redesigned stand is the quick-release saw mount, which improves versatility and also helps when loading saw and stand into a truck. Work supports also have been improved. Rollers that support the stock slide along the extension arms instead of being fixed to the ends. These come in 12-in. and 14-in. sizes, handy for siding and exterior-trim work. The extension arms reach out to almost 10 ft. overall.
To keep the extensions from flexing under a heavy load, support legs are tucked inside the extension arms. Pressing the buttons to work the system is a little tricky, and the legs are not durable. The large-diameter wheels make it easy to pull the saw over rough terrain and up stairs. But they are narrow and sink into soft earth and lawns.
Opening and closing the system is a multistep process requiring the operator to walk to each end of the stand in sequence, extending the hinged legs at one end, then lifting the table and rolling out the wheels at the other.
