Impressive must have upgrade for a miter saw
on June 24, 2013
I picked up this Genesis Miter saw stand as a upgrade for my Ryobi Miter saw stand. For the nice look and price I couldn't turn it down. It has everything my old stand doesn't - easy mobility, strength and stability, as well as quick and easy adjustments to manipulate the stand to accommodate all of my needs. The saw was in sturdy packaging and was very easy to assemble. It even has various bolt sizes in case I upgrade from my miter saw later on. It was very easy to assemble with directions that the normal user can understand. I like the stability and the tightness of the stand, no wobble, no loose parts including the extension arms(The extension arms were a little tight when extending, but it was nice to have no wobble when using the stand). The adjustable leg comes in handy if you need to move to a grass or gravel surface to make cuts and keeps the stand stable as well as balanced. The quick release saw mounting brackets worked nicely with my current miter saw and kept the saw locked snug to the stand. After use breaking down the miter saw stand was great, the legs have quick release pins that break down fast and your ready to move. My old stand had bulky legs that were a little difficult to break down, and when I say break down I mean the miter saw has to come off, then you have to take the legs down and carry the stand separate from the saw. This new Genesis stand has wheels, the option to take down the stand with the saw still attached, and can be rolled to the vehicle or trailer to go to storage. It is also compact and uses hardly any room. I would recommend this Genesis Miter Saw Stand to any user DIY, Weekend warrior, or construction worker. After seeing the quality of this stand I plan to purchase the Genesis 12" Miter Saw Stand to accompany it! Love the Genesis Products!
