Given that you are only moving the saw around the garage area, I d look for a quality contractor saw, not a jobsite one. You ll be much happier with that type of saw, and on the used market they don t cost a lot more than good new jobsite saws.

Look for a Rigid 3650 or a Craftsman saw of similar vintage (5-15 years old). You shouldn t have to pay more than ~$300 and you ll get a quality saw that is very movable on the mobile base.

I have a Ridgid 3650 with a router table wing that works great. I have to move it a lot and it has a built in lift that makes it easy.
