I, for one, hate jockeying 4×8 sheets of plywood over a table saw. When I shut down my cabinet business and shrank back to my garage shop, I set up my saw for a 36” wide max cut. For sheet goods I use a guided rail system like Festool which is as accurate as needed. And its much easier to plop a sheet of plywood on a couple of shop made sawhorses than trying to raise the ply and push over the saw. Especially with MDF. So I don’t think the extra 12” width is worth the space and cost when working in tight quarters where space is at a super premium.
