I am not certain when the patents expire but would not expect every saw to have it. It is not just the Bradbury the entire mechanism that must survive a large shock to stop the blade and lower it. Also, any company that has such a device will need expensive and thorough testing and hefty liability backing. If a brake fails to activate, there will be large lawsuits.

I have had my Sawstop for a number of years and love it.
