$150 won’t buy anything electrical these days. Maybe the upgrade cost for an empty panel. Does the power company give you the meter socket free? Being an IBEW electrician for over 40 years, the prices do not seem possible. Remember if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. For a big shop, yes. For a one car garage, forget it. Remember, most places the rate for a service without a house is commercial, usually much higher. 3 phase (4 wire) cord, plugs and receptacles, breakers, pricey. Conduit a must, as the white wire in Romex can NOT be used for a hot wire. Marking is not approved. Plenty of good single phase table saw out there.
