The jobsite saws have much less working area in front of the blade…..

Knotscott, could you please tell us what the advantage of having a longer landing zone in front of the blade is? What does this do for you? Thanks for any info!!!!!

In addition to keeping your hands farther away from the blade, it gives you a lot more area to get the board settled and flush with the table before the board contacts the blade. Getting the board registered against the table and fence should give you better opportunity for ripping accurately. There’s also greater crosscut capacity.
