SawStop burst onto the scene with their patented table saw safety technology. Quickly redefining what safety means in the woodworking industry.

Instead of licensing out their technology to competitors, they chose to create a complete lineup of table saws ranging from the mobile jobsite saw with 1.5 horsepower to the 7.5 horsepower industrial cabinet saw with a 52″ fence and router table attachment.

SawStop Table Saw Reviews & Options

SawStop saws are available in several sized to fit both the cabinet manufacturing facility and the contractor on the go who want to keep all of their fingers intact.

Some of the factors that you should take into account when looking at the SawStop saws are:

  • Do you need a router table
  • How much rip capacity do you need
  • Dust removal compatability
  • How much power do you need
  • Do you need your saw to move from jobsite to jobsite with you

 

The larger three models are available in different horsepower and rip capacity options. You could also look at adding accessories such as dust removal, an outfeed or infeed table and a crosscut table to any of the larger saw options.

 

SawStop Pros

The most obvious benefit SawStop has over their competitors is their impressive, patented safety features.

If you have been in the woodworking industry for any amount of time, you are not doubt familiar with SawStops locking mechanism and can see how it may save you and your colleagues your fingers.

If you represent a high school, woodworking school or other DIY facility, paying a bit more for the SawStop saw is highly recommended as the safety features are much more likely to save someone’s hands and save you a lawsuit. 

SawStop Cons

While the products are exceptional, they are also expensive. This cost is no doubt warranted based on the safety features alone. While the price point may be daunting to the newcomer, you may just be saving yourself a serious injury and a sizable hospital bill.

In addition to the substantial cost, the SawStop team can be a bit rigid and difficult to deal with according to some reports.

What's The Verdict?
