This looks good! I was eyeing the Rigid one at home depot that comes with a stand for $100 more but this one might be the better buy. Can anyone with either chime in with their experience?

I purchased the Ridgid table saw for a company I used to work at and it was great. A bit of assembly required on the stand but nothing complicated. Lifetime service agreement is a huge bonus. Bosch is high quality but I would recommend the Ridgid based on the pro's, especially if it's just for home DIY type stuff.

I'm a very new table saw user. A few months ago I went back and forth on whether to buy this or the Dewalt DW745. I ended up getting the Dewalt due to their rack and pinion system, knowing that it can't take a dado stack. I have used it a number of times now and I can say that it has worked AWESOME! So no regrets here.

Damn OP, I'm trying to assemble a woodshop and this saw would be great for cutting a boatload of french cleats.... I just need to figure out if this would be a good addition now, or down the road as I already have bandsaw, mitre saw, circular saw......

This is a common sale price for this saw and similar models from other brands.

Would this be better than a mitre saw? Looking to grab something for Dad for father's day... he highlighted the one that was on sale at CANTIRE but they were out of stock.

Better isn't really the right word as they serve different purposes, but a mitre saw is more commonly used and versatile.

It's for a different purpose. Mitre saws are great for cutting precise angles at the ends of boards etc.

Table saws let you do straight long cuts, moving your material against the saw blade with the rip fence as a guide, among other things.

If your building a fence or deck a mitre saw will do most of the work very well.

I just picked up the Dewalt 7480 for $299 at some Can Tire stores with it as clearance otherwise this might've been the one I get. For those interested in the difference, research shows the Dewalt has larger rip capacity (18 vs 24"), the rack and pinion fence which is easier to micro adjust, and more power.

The Bosch can also take dado stack, the dewalt cannot. It's basically rack and pinion vs dados. It's very common for people to compare these two jobsite saws and that is basically what it comes down to when making the decision, which is more important for them to have.
