I'm in the market for my first table saw and I've been looking around on the List, but haven't found exactly what I'm looking for so I went to the blue box store and the new Delta 36-725 caught my eye. I also like anything Bosch, so the 4100-09 is also a contender. They are two different type saws, but I can't really decide which one! They are the same price and the fact that one is portable doesn't really matter. I just think Bosch makes really good tools. I'm afraid the Delta is TOO new and the kinks aren't worked out yet. I've heard customer service is terrible and the issue with the throat plate bothers me (sheet metal and non zero clearance). So help me guys…. Which one?

If the saw is for a home shop with a dc a job site saw like the Bosch you mentioned will simply not cut it for dust collection. It's a job site saw used for just that.

I have owned a job site saw and a contractor/hybrid saw and the dust collection on a real contractor/hybrid saw is night and day over a job site table saw. There is no good way to make a job site saw dc friendly without cutting it up and mounting it to a stand rendering it no longer a job site saw and spending more money in the long run for a inferior motor and fence.

I went through what you are going through. For the cost of my job site saw and stand plus my contractor saw I could be in a used delta unisaw or pm 66+ by now.
