I bought this saw after trying to decide between it and the Ridgid 4512. Let me tell you, I've used both and the Craftex and it's ten times the saw!! Full cast iron top AND cast iron wings unlike the Ridgid which has metal wings. I am in the process of building a full kitchen's worth of cabinets with this saw and couldn't be happier with the accuracy, reliability and most importantly the price.

very well made and accurate cast iron top is as smooth as glass fence adjusts smoothly and is easy to remove and is dead on accurate easy to read scale very sturdy stand. motor has plenty of power to handle any job I can throw at it, runs smooth no vibrations. at $499.99 this saw is a great price and compared to other saws in the market that I looked at this saw has them beat I have been building furniture ect. for 45 years and overall I am very pleased with the purchase of this saw I would highly recommend this saw

This is a great saw. If you take the time when setting it up you will be rewarded with very accurate cuts. I had to grind my arbor washer and nut but after they were truly flat I had less than 0.001" run out on my "Avanti" blade. The fence is sturdy and stable but the marking lines and scale do not line up properly. This does not bother me because I usually work in mm and the scale is only inches. This is my first table saw so I can't compare it to other saws but so far I don't foresee any need to upgrade.

I bought this saw 4 months ago and could not be happier. I build furniture and this saw has made my life in the shop a whole lot easier. powerful, clean cuts and is very accurate with the fence provided. unless i upgrade in the future i will not need another table saw.

Bought this saw 3 months ago and am very happy with it. The 2.5" dust port is a little small for my tastes and it clots up if you have long thin off-cuts fall into it, but i removed the shroud and put a piece of plywood on the bottom with a 4" port right under the blade.
Only other issue I have is the insert opening is a little big. I was cutting with the blade at 45 degrees to litre an edge. The offcut got trapped between the blade and the insert. The piece shot across the shop like a bullet with a sound like a shotgun. I now use my own 0 clearence insert.
But despite the above, I love this saw. I doubt you could beat the price and still get this level of quality!

Had this saw for just over a year now and I had to write a review. Bang fo ryou buck, this is the best saw you can buy. Every since the granite table tops came out prices have really jumped, but this saw has always remained around the $599 mark which is excellent value. From what I remember, everything was great out of the box and this has truly become my go to saw for just about anything in the shop. Would really recommend this anyone looking at a contractor saw.

I'm used to big 550v 7+hp saw, so for me when I first start using it guest what, blew the breaker off, but when you get the hang of the feed rate (which by
the way is reasonable even for a professional) the saw has met all my needs.
Overall, YOU CANNOT FIND A BETTER SAW FOR THE MONEY, do not look this is it!

I was considering buying a cabinet saw until I saw this one. I was extremely impressed with the meticulous care taken with the finish and the packaging. Everything fit perfectly during assembly, and the bubble pack fasteners made it a breeze to find the right pieces. I mounted the saw on a D2057A base with a 3/4" plywood insert, with everything bolted together, so it sits rock solid. There is very little adjustment to do after assembly, as everything is factory built to be square and true.
When you look at what kind of saw you can get for $500 at a big box store, this is great value!

I've had this saw for a while and love it. I wired it for 220 and its never had a hard time going through anything I've put through it. The fence is awesome and very accurate, couldn't ask for a better saw.
