Though I really like the DEWALT DW745 10-Inch Compact Job-Site Table Saw with 20-Inch Max Rip Capacity, I am all for having a few options.
1. Bosch GTS1031 10-Inch Portable Jobsite Table Saw
Another great choice in terms of portability is this little fellow from Bosch. Made from high-quality materials (all-steel), this saw is well-known for its durability. Like the Dewalt, this saw also comes equipped with a powerful, 15 amp motor, being able to cut even through very dense hardwood.
Though a bit heavier than the Dewalt DW745, this unit is also easy to carry and depending on your physique, you could transport it with just one hand.
2. Ridgid R4516 10 in. Portable Jobsite Table Saw
Possibly the best perk about this Ridgid saw is the fact that it allows room for a dado plate. I find this a plus, especially since most contractors miss dado stacks after going from a larger saw to a portable, compact one.
The overall high-quality starting with the blade and finishing with the incorporated fence makes this Ridgid unit a pretty good option for many. Previous users attest that it’s able to handle most things you though its way.
3. Delta Power Tools 36-6020 10" Portable Table Saw with Stand
Equipped with an aluminum tabletop and some high-quality HR extensions for an increased workspace, this portable saw from Delta Power is also a good option when it comes to eliminating all fuss. Though quite a bit heavier than its counterparts (close to 88 pounds) it’s still fairly easy to carry with you to any jobsite.
The 10-inch Delta saw blade is high-quality and performs well, at least according to previous users. What I find particularly attractive about the 36-6020 model is the fact that the blades are retractable. Having them move to the space below the table will do wonders for the final clean-up process.
4. Hitachi C10RJ 10" 15-Amp Jobsite Table Saw
Like many of the better models on the market, Dewalt and Bosch, this Hitachi unit will also provide you with an on-site much-needed storage space. The 15 amp motor is quite powerful, being able to produce 4,500 rotations/ minute.
What I like most about the Hitachi C10RRJ is the fact that, unlike other models, it has a dado capacity (13/16’’). Another unique feature is the telescopic table extension that supports up to 35’’ ripping capacity to the right and 22’’ to the left.
