Shop Fox W1824 Hybrid Table Saw with Extension Table
I picked this saw from Shop Fox over the others because of its combination of table size and motor size. It comes with a 2 HP electric motor, making it one of only two I've found in this category which have that size motor. The rest have 1.75 HP. That little bit of extra power can make a huge difference when cutting through heavy materials. Smaller motors might end up with some chatter, which will show up as cutting marks.
A poly-V serpentine belt and pulley system keeps vibration down while providing positive power transfer. The table on this saw is 55 inches wide, with the extension. The main part of the table is precision ground cast-iron, while the extension is a low-friction composite.
The fence on this saw is extremely nice, with a camlock for security and knurled knobs for fine adjustment. The T side of the fence is nice and wide, ensuring stability while faces are covered with HDPE for low friction. Rails are shipped separate from the saw, so that they can be manufactured as one solid piece for better accuracy so I'd say that makes it worth taking the time to set them up. The cutting capacity of this saw is stated at 27-inches, but I'm pretty sure that's without the extension. The miter gauge has a T-slot for security as well.
