  • 3612 vs the contractor model

    I am finally about ready to buy my tablesaw, went to HD yesterday and looked at them again, but this time looked at the portable contractors saw...anyone know anything about both?

    The Contractor saw is 100.00 cheaper and would be convenient to move, but the 3612 is still a "nice" saw! Comments please!

    If you have the storage space, get the 3612. The 3612 comes with the Herc-U-Lift so it too is very easy to move around your shop.

      Does the Herc-u-lift also fit the BS1400 band saw?

        Cal,

        You would need to use the Herc-U-Lift PLUS for the band saw.

          are you talking about "bench top saws" cause by definition the 3612 "is" a contractor type saw and infinatly better than a bench top saw bill

            I'm sure he meant jobsite saw. I have the 2400 and the 2424 both. I can see where the 2400 would be enough saw for some projects, especially if he's short on room. If not the 3612 is definitely the better choice, but hey, you got people building furniture on the BT-3000 and they're rabid fans of the darn thing. The top of the line benchtops like the 2400 aren't that bad....I can rip any hardwood on the thing without problems.
