Grizzly G0690 Cabinet Table Saw Review

If you only need to do some light, home improvement wood working, a contractor table saw is really all you need to invest in. However, if you actually are a contractor and you often need to prep a lot of wood for interior decorating or other such activities, you will need to invest in something a little bit more expensive, which is a cabinet table saw. You could go with a hybrid table saw, but really, the price difference is not that big and the Grizzly G0690 Cabinet Table Saw comes actually quite close, in terms of price to a hybrid. However, it does have all the advantages of a serious table saw and we are going to talk about those after we clear up a few details.

Advantages of a Cabinet Table Saw

The most important thing to understand about a cabinet table saw is that it is not something you can take from job site to job site. It is not impossible, and, if you are going to spend a week on a site, and you do have a pickup, it would be a good idea to bring it along, but for short projects it is really not worth the effort. The biggest advantage of a cabinet table saw is the fact that it has a huge dust port, an excellent vacuum system and the cabinet below to collect that dust. The reason why that cabinet is so big is because it is also meant to provide a lot of support to the table saw, and it really is a more stable structure than any contractor table saw.

Technical Features

Now that we have explained all that, let’s point out the fact that the Grizzly G0690 Cabinet Table Saw fulfills all those expectations. It has a 4 inch dust port and a huge cabinet that has been powdered coated. That is another excellent point to be made about the Grizzly G0690 Cabinet Table Saw, as opposed to almost every other hybrid or contractor table saw: it is powdered coated and not just painted, so its paint job will last for a lot longer and protect the metal underneath a lot better.

Another point to highlight is the fact that the Grizzly G0690 Cabinet Table Saw actually uses a 3 horse power motor and that is really difficult to convert into Amps, which is what contractor table saws motors are measured in. But the thing to understand is that you really do not need to compare them because the simple truth is that contractor table saws are so much stronger and use materials that are so sturdier that they are in an entirely different class.

The other great thing about the Grizzly G0690 Cabinet Table Saw, when you compare it to contractor table saws, and sometimes even to other cabinet tables saws, is that it is able to use both a regular blade and a DADO blade with a maximum width of 13/16 inches. The maximum size of the working surface, with extensions is 27” by 40”, and that is another great thing reason why professionals use cabinet table saws rather than the contractor version.
