Im not a contractor, Im a home owner that does lots of work for friends and family. Its nice to have a table saw that you can move all over, it comes in real handy. It is kind of heavy for a portable if you are a contractor you might not like that but for me it works great cause Im not moving it around as much. I have used it several times and it cuts well very smooth shood last a long time as long as I keep it sharp.\n\nI liked how fast the tool factory shiped it to me it only took four days to get. The next time I need a tool I will be looking here first.
