    The 3650 is nice, but not very portable.

    With that said, I have heard a lot of good things about the 2400 but I do not have one, I got a 3650.

    What I mostly see contractors using for the cabinets around here is a Dewalt or a Bosch portable.

    Most of the larger jobs I visit will have a saw such as the 3650 on site for the cabinets if they are going to be there a while.

      About a year ago Wood Magazine, IIRC, did a test on the Bosch, the Ridgid 3650 and the 2400, as well as a couple of others and the Ridgids performed better than most with the 2400 exceeding the Bosch. If anyone can come up with the proper reference it might help this person out.

        It sounds like portability is a key concern, which really narrows the field down to a portable jobsite saw like the 2400, Bosch, DW, or PC. It might be nice to eventually have a stationary saw back at the home shop, depending on the types of stuff you get into, but to start out portability is likely to be a big factor.
