The 5 Best Portable Table Saw Reviews

A portable table saw is one of the most important tools that a carpenter has so choosing the right one is important. For working on the job site you are going to want one that is not only easy to transport but which also can handle the job.

The following are the five best job site table saws that I have come across. They are not only ideal for contractors to take to work with them but also for home users who have a small shop and don't have the space for or are not willing to commit to the cost of a large stand table saw.

Best Portable Table Saws Compared

1. DEWALT DW745 10-Inch Compact Job-Site Table Saw

The Dewalt DW745 is probably the most popular of the job site table saws mainly because it is so easy to move around. It is very light so you will not have to wear yourself out lugging it around.

The down side to this is that it does have a bit of a cheap and flimsy feel to it. This is most obvious in the miter gauge which is really not up to the job of cutting thick pieces.

While being lightweight the DW745 does make accurate cuts and can handle most pieces that you are likely to encounter on the job site. It has proved to be fairly durable so there are no issues there.​

One issue that we did have was that the saw is not capable of holding a Dado blade which can be limiting for some users.

The Dewalt DW745 is a quality portable table saw that is available at a reasonable price. If you are willing to spend considerably more you will get a better saw but for most users this one is an ideal compromise between quality, cost and portability which is why it is so popular.

2. Bosch 4100-09 10-Inch Worksite Table Saw

The Bosch 4100 like all tools that the company makes has plenty of power and it can rip through almost anything with ease. The cuts are quite accurate, at least as accurate as you are likely to get from a portable table saw.

In order to make a saw that is powerful, accurate and durable they ended up with one that is quite heavy which can be an issue when you are trying to move it. This is why the gravity stand and wheels are so useful. The wheels in particular make it easy to roll around any surface so the only time you will have to lift the 4100 is to get it into and out of your truck.

Overall the Bosch 4100 is a very good job site table saw that be easily moved and can handle almost any job that is thrown at it, I highly recommend it for any contractor who is in need of a new table saw.

3. Makita 2705X1 10-Inch Contractor Table Saw

The best thing about the Makita 2705X1 is that it has the largest cutting capacity of any portable table saw that I have seen by a pretty good margin. It can handle much larger pieces than most other job site saws. It also has the largest table that I have seen which is very helpful.

The saw has plenty of power so it can go through anything without a problem, it is well built so it should last for many years. The biggest issue that I had with the Makita was the rip fence.

While it was easy to adjust it would not stay in place when ripping long pieces. It worked fine for shorter pieces but long ones kept nudging it out of alignment.

I really liked the Makita 2705X1 and would recommend it to anybody who has to regularly cut large pieces on a job site. That being said if you need a saw that is easy to move around you may want to consider other options.

4. DEWALT DW744XRS 10-inch Job Site Table Saw

The Dewalt DW744XRS is portable table saw that I really liked using, the cuts were accurate and the power more than adequate for most jobs. Everything on the saw is easy to adjust which really saves time when making cuts.

This is particularly true of the rip fence which Dewalt really advertise the heck out of in their promotional materials but it does work great.

The biggest issue that I had with this saw is actually the rolling stand which is very heavy. This is a little odd because the actual saw is not all that heavy and can be carried around without too much difficulty. The stand however really adds to the weight.

One other concern I have is the durability, like most Dewalt saws in order to keep the weight down they use a lot of plastic so the saw has a bit of a flimsy feel to it.

Overall I am quite happy with the Dewalt DW744XRS however that may change in a few years if my durability concerns come to pass. I would say this saw is probably better suited to a home user who needs a quality table saw rather than a contractor.

5. Bosch GTS1031 10-Inch Portable Jobsite Table Saw

The Bosch GTS1031 is great for anybody who needs a table saw but does not have a lot of space. It is a very compact design so that it can be easily stored in the smallest of spaces. The downside to this is that it means the table is quite small which can be an issue if you are cutting larger pieces.

The GTS1031 is a little on the heavy side but transporting it is not all that difficult because of the carrying handle. That being said you aren’t going to want to have to walk long distances.

Like all Bosch saws this one has plenty of power, although it is a bit on the noisy side. The cuts are accurate and easy to make.

The Bosch GTS1031 is a great option for people who need a small saw that will not take up a lot of space. It is ideal not only for contractors but for people who have a small workshop at home as well. It is highly recommended.
