Not sure how many people have been waiting for this machine or watching the news on it, but it’s finally here. SawStop is finally releasing its brand new 10” Professional Cabinet Saw to dealers and woodworkers around the nation. This saw is a go-between model between their current industrial cabinet saw and contractor saw and provides a great piece of equipment for hobbyists and professionals a like.

SawStop Professional Cabinet Saw

The saw comes available in two models: a 36” fence/rails model and a 52” fence/rails model. It also comes with a tool-free quick change insert and blade guard system. This SawStop proprietary system makes it very easy to switch between the blade guard and riving knife. The new professional cabinet saw also comes with an improved dust collection system. This system collections up to 99.5% of particulates keeping dust of our the user’s lungs. Plus, of course, the saw comes with SawStop’s patented safety contact detection and braking system that will prevent serious blade-related injuries.

I’ve posted some of the specs below for those who are curious.

Table Dimensions: 27” x 44”
Weight: 515-540 lbs
Max Depth of Cut (0 deg): 3-1/8”
Max Rip Left of Blade: 12.5”
Insert: zero clearance, phenolic core
Power: 220V 15A circuit
Motor: 3 HP
Main Bearing Size: 62mm
Max Depth of Cut (45 deg): 2-1/4”
Max Rip Right of Blade: 52.5” or 36.5”
Elevation and Tilt: 7” cast iron w/ chrome

You can also great some great options with this including two mobile base options and an optional outfeed table.

SawStop is accepting pre-orders beginning May 4th and is offering a free titanium blade with each pre-order. If you’ve been keeping a close eye on this saw, get your name in for a pre-order because it is on a first come, first serve basis and these will go quick.

Anybody have any special thoughts on this product or excited now that it’s finally here? How do you think this will compare with the current professional table saw market going up against saws like the Powermatic PM2000? Please post your thoughts below. Hope you guys enjoy the new info!

I have the 52” fence and cast wings on the contractor model and it is very nice. I wonder what price point this saw will hit.

For pre-orders, the 36” fence model runs at $2,899 and the 52” fence model runs at $2,999. Definately not a bad price for all you get with the saw. Not to mention the quality and piece of mind you receive as well.

Had this been available when I was shopping for a saw I’d have gotten it, that being said I’m still very happy with my JET.

this price does seem much more intouch with the rest of the industry compared to their cabinet saw, and their highly priced contractor saw (very close to this one). I wonder what is the sacrifice? what did they have to cut down on in order to get this market price.

I seem to recall, in the last few days of my reveiw search for a new saw, that they are coming out with a contractor series with a three horse motor a few months from now.

Perhaps this was what was mentioned, not sure. Haven’t heard anything yet on a new model of the contractor saw – but you never know what SawStop will come up with next.

After I thought about it, wondering where I heard/read this. I remember now that it was at a Woodcraft store, the salesman told me that next year they were releasing a 3hp contractor saw. He was trying to convince me to buy one (A sawstop) I told him as much as I wanted one, I just couldn’t afford a new sawstop cabinet saw, and the contractor saw was not powerful enough. That was when he told me “Next year”

Isn’t that the way it works sometimes you send off an order and the next day they come out with something you really wanted . That’s why I own two Bosch jig saws ,a little different price range.

It fares comparably with the PM2000. It still has some very minor issues to be worked out but it is a top quality saw.

It’s probably a Hybrid.
