[Lowe's] Kobalt Table Saw 15-Amp 10-in blade 5000rpm with folding stand & 3 year warranty $249.99

Yet another portable table saw to throw into the mix but this time for $30 less than the Bosch or Dewalt and you get the stand which is a massive help. Same warranty as the Dewalt. Dont forget the $10 off next purchase with email signup before buying

good luck

I bought the Dewalt for $300 which would definitely be a better saw but for the couple times a year I use it I might prefer to spend $50 less and have a stand.

The Kobalt stuff always seems like a great deal, and gets good reviews, but I thought Lowes was replacing the Kobalt brand name with Craftsman, the brand name bought from Sears? Are they still selling Kobalt branded tools in parallel, or is this a clearout of existing stock?

This is a pretty good deal. Fence design isn't the best compared to dewalt. So maybe need to adjust before use. However with this stand. Your saving like an extra $100-$150 for a stand.

I thought Kobalt was being discontinued so not sure about warranty.

I have the previous model the kt1015. Apparently they fixed the fence system but i'm a bit suspect on that. This unit is lighter which makes me think they cheaped out and replaced some steel parts with plastic. Overall it's a decent portable saw with plenty of power for the DIY'er... I would not run 4 inch oak or maple through it but it can take 3/4 hardwood material through fine with a decent blade (I have an irwin marples in it). I got my unit for about $200 around 4yrs ago and has served me extremely well... made some modifications and it's pretty decent now.

FYI, making a zero clearance insert slot is kinda a pain in rear because the arbor mount goes so damn high.
