Best Cabinet Table Saw 2017

There are only 2 reasons why you would not prefer a cabinet table saw over all the other table saw models on the market: money and size. A cabinet table saw is not something that you can take with you on jobs, so if you own a small contractor business, you will wish to be able to buy a cabinet table saw but you will not be able because you will not be able to carry it with you to job locations. However, if you own a medium to large size business, than you are going to love just how much more accurate, fast and powerful a cabinet table saw really is. There is basically no large scale wood working job that does not desperately need the benefits of a table saw. We are actually going to point out as we go through the following cabinet table saw reviews, what are the advantages of a cabinet table saw. First, though, we are going to start with a table where we highlight the most interesting features of each product.

In the world of cabinet table saws there are really just 2 names that stand out from the crowd, Grizzly and SawStop. We are going to start with the Grizzly G0691 because it offers the best quality to price ratio of all of the cabinet table saws available on the market in 2014. It has a 3 horse power motor that can spin the blade at 4,800 rotations per minute or RPM. The fact that the power of the motor is measured in HP and not Amps is the first difference between a cabinet table saw and a regular contractor table saw. It basically means that the motor is anywhere between 3 and 6 times more powerful than that of a regular table saw.

The second feature that you are going to find only on cabinet table saws is the extendable table, cast iron body and powder coated paint. All of these features add up to create a table saw that will last several generations if it is treated with care. So, even though initially you end up paying approximately 4 times the price of a contractor table saw, you will get to enjoy the Grizzly G0691 for a lot longer. And that extendable table, coupled with the heavy cast iron body also means you can extend the length of the fence to 50 inches and still get an impeccable level of precision.

Finally, there are two more features that make all the difference between a cabinet table saw and a contractor one. The first and most important by far, is that the Grizzly G0691 can use both a regular rip blade and a dado blade. And the dust from all that cutting gets automatically vacuumed in that huge base that a cabinet table saw can afford to have. The Grizzly G0691 actually has a 4 inch dust port. So, considering all of these features, and the relatively low price, we can confidently say that the Grizzly G091 is the best cabinet table saw on the market in 2014.

Of course, the best cabinet table saw is not one that you dream about, but the one you can afford and, as far as money is concerned, the Steel City Tool Works 35950 is the most affordable cabinet table saw on the market. We loved its cast design and the precision of the 30 inch fence. It is exactly what you would expect from a cabinet table saw and that is why we decided to feature it here. However, there are a couple of reasons why the Steel City Tool Works 35950 cost less than half of most of the other cabinet table saws on the market. For one, it does not have support for a dado blade so that almost puts it in the hybrid table saw category. The motor, too, only has 1.75 HP. However, it does use a dual capacitor, which is like having a dual core processor, and there is basically no type of grained or pressed wood that has any chance in front of that blade. Ultimately though, it was its precision and its dust port, coupled with the affordable price range that convinced us to award the Steel City Tool Works 35950 a slot among our cabinet table saw reviews.

If you are going to look into the cabinet table saw market, you are going to find that there is just one name that comes up over and over again, and that is SawStop. They have the broadest range of cabinet table saws, and they deliver that ultimate level of quality that you look for when building up a wood working business. However, even their more affordable models are almost 3 times as expensive as the Steel City Tool Works cabinet table saw we talked about earlier. The good news is that, if you can afford them,  you will understand why their products are so expensive.

On top of providing the highest level of reliability and precision, they also have a line of table saws that will make your jaw drop the first moment you see them. The body is painted a matt black and the table top looks like its brushed aluminum. The performance level of any SawStop cabinet table saw is outstanding, but with the SawStop PCS31230-TGP236 you get so much more. You have a 3 HP motor, powering either a 10 inch regular blade or an 8 inch Dado blade. And the fence swings out to 36 inches with a precision that you will not find on any contractor style table saw.

Conclusion

For most business the Grizzly G0691 offers everything you would need at a reasonable price, which is why we consider it is the best cabinet table saw. However, if you want that little bit extra, and the image of your company is something you are concerned with, then the SawStop PCS31230-TGP236 is a better choice. Finally, if you need a cabinet table saw but cannot afford the Grizzly, the Steel City Tool Works 35950 will do until you can grow your business a little bit and can afford a better cabinet table saw.
