I’m a proud owner of a Sawstop and love the saw for it’s quality of cut and of course the safety feature. A comparable Delta saw is about the same cost, I know this because I researched before I bought. I really don’t know why people think it cost a LOT more than other brands with the same features. I also know that Sawstop’s customer service is as good as it gets. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried contacting other tool manufacturers but I have and I’ve had zero success with Delta, Dewalt, Makita, etc.

I’ve used the Sawstop for nearly 2 years now and it’s never tripped. I’m as cautious with my Sawstop as I was with my Dewalt jobsite saw that I had prior. The fact is, the Sawstop is no safer than any other quality tablesaw. I’m as likely to get a kickback with the SS as I am with any other equivalent saw. There are a lot of people that think Sawstop owners are less cautious with the saw and that couldn’t be any further from the truth. Keeping the saw tuned up is still a necessity for quality cuts and safety.

I highly recommend the Sawstop (cabinet or even contractor). If you decide to buy a SS I’m betting you’ll be in awe the second you open the first box. I mentioned these guys are top notch in their customer service; this will show when you open the first box. They’ve color coded everything and putting the saw together couldn’t be simpler. The Sawstop is the only saw for me.

BTW – I have both the standard blade brake and the dado brake and changing blades only takes a couple of minutes longer on the SS than it does on other saws.
