SawStop Contractor Saw
A Safer Saw
The SawStop 36" Contractor Saw gives you the reliability and versatility to complete any project. Whether you're building a deck in your backyard or overhauling your kitchen cabinets, the Contractor Saw will get the job done. It delivers better-than-hybrid performance in the shop with the peace of mind only SawStop's patented safety system can provide.
According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, there is a table saw injury every 9 minutes, and 10 amputations every day in the United States. Even the most safety-conscious woodworkers are at risk of an accident. And when that accident happens, the consequences are life-changing: extreme pain and trauma, loss of income-earning abilities, and loss of the ability to pursue hobbies. It's time to protect yourself. SawStop saws have saved thousands of fingers.
Professional T-Glide Fence
The Professional T-Glide Fence System is constructed of the highest quality thick gauge steel. It provides smooth operation, an expansive work surface, precision measurement and sure lockdown without deflection.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has classified sawdust as a cancer-causing carcinogen. SawStop addresses this safety hazard with the most complete solution available. Under-table shrouding, combined with the optional Dust Collection Blade Guard (TSG-DC) and Dust Collection Port Adapter (CNS-DCP), captures the majority of dust created.
Available Accessory: Overarm Dust Collection. (TSA-ODC)
Upgrade your Contractor Saw with two Cast Iron Wings (CNS-CIWA) for a smooth and beautiful fit and finish. The wings align perfectly with the table, rails and extension table, and add 70 more pounds to the saw. This means added stability and reduced vibration for the most precise and accurate results every time.
Easily move your saw around the shop with the Contractor Saw Integrated Mobile Base (MB-CNS-000). Fully-welded 1/4" rigid steel construction, two fixed wheels, two 360 deg. casters, and ergonomic one-foot operation that mechanically lifts the saw in a single motion allowing for easy positioning. The Contractor Saw Mobile Cart (MC-CNS) is like an All-Terrain Vehicle for your saw that can be easily rolled up a ramp and over uneven surfaces. It is constructed of sturdy steel, hefty 10" rubber tires and full ball bearing wheels.
How It Works
The blade carries a small electrical signal.
When skin contacts the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive.
The change to the signal activates the safety system.
An aluminum brake springs into the path of the blade.
The blade comes to a complete stop and power to the motor is shut off.
After the blade comes to a stop, the blade's angular momentum drives it beneath the table, removing the risk of subsequent contact.
All of this happens in less than 5 milliseconds.
Resetting the saw yourself is easy. Simply inspect the blade for damage and replace the brake cartridge, and your saw is operational.
This entire process takes 90 seconds and you're back to work.

Offering versatility and safety in the shop and stability and mobility on the job site, the SawStop Contractor Saw (model CNS175-TGP36) delivers the performance you need with the peace of mind only SawStop's patented safety system can provide. The safety system detects when someone accidentally contacts the spinning saw blade, and then stops the blade in milliseconds — resulting in just a nick on a SawStop saw instead of the devastating injury. This model comes with a 36-inch T-Glide fence system for added strength and increased precision as well as rails and extension table.
Maximizing Practicality, Precision, and Mobility
The SawStop 1.75 horsepower Contractor Saw is a synergy of mobility and precision. First, its heavy duty trunnion and cast iron table top ensure a steady and true cut, no matter the configuration. And with over 100 different potential configurations for the Contractor Saw, you can make this saw fit your needs.
The Contractor Saw features a well shrouded blade to improve dust collection and reduce airborne particulates. The shroud tapers to a 4-inch port for direct connection to a dust collection system. The zero clearance insert supports the wood throughout the cut and reduces tear-out and chip-out.
A Safer Saw
What if you could stop a saw blade and prevent a serious injury? That sounds like a really good idea.Today, that idea is protecting woodworkers in tens of thousands of SawStop table saws in North America and around the globe.
The SawStop safety system includes an electronic detection system that detects when a person contacts the blade. The system induces an electrical signal onto the blade and then monitors that signal for changes. It can tell the difference between a finger and a piece of wood as the human body has a relatively large inherent electrical capacitance and conductivity, which will cause the signal to drop when a person contacts the blade.
When contact is detected, a fast-acting brake stops the blade, with a heavy-duty spring pushing a block of aluminum (called a brake pawl) into the teeth of the blade to stop the blade from spinning. The teeth cut into the aluminum and bind, thereby stopping the blade in about 3 to 5 milliseconds — or 1/200th of a second.

I had been hemming & hawing about getting one based on the cost as I went to Woodworker's Emporium and really checked one out. The quality of the saw was excellent with safety fetchers beyond the saw stopping with human contact that surpassed my expectations. Blade guard & riving knife (minimize those kickbacks!), zero-clearance inserts, diagnostic self-check system, hands-free shutoff, blade tilts away from fence, etc. I sold my Delta and I decided to bite the bullet on this saw. The second I made the purchase the calming of my peace-of-mind was incredible. I have not received my saw yet and had a chance to use it but I sure feel great just knowing it's on the way.
I never batted an eye at the cost in making this purchase as I asked myself, "what's my well-being, peace-of-mind, and fingers worth?" It didn't take long to figure . . . WAY more than the price of a SawStop.
-------- I've now owned the saw for 3 months and can give a review --------
Receiving the Saw - I ordered the Saw on Amazon on a Friday. On Tuesday the delivery company contacted me by phone (as stated by Amazon) to set up a date and time. You could chose a morning time from 8-12 or an afternoon time from 12-4. I chose Wednesday (the following day) and picked the 12-4. The saw arrived at my house at 1:15. Two nice men used a pallet jack and rolled 4 boxes on one pallet right into the middle of my shop. The boxes looked to be in good shape. My rating here is A+.
Assembling the Saw - This was an absolute pleasure! The directions come on big, clearly written, color-coded flow charts and all nuts & bolts are individually packaged and color-coded to match. This process of assemble took about 4 hours and I really felt I was taking my time. This process included my addition of an optional cast-iron wing & a Bench Dog router table extension with a JessEm router lift. Well everything was going smooth as can be. The final piece to install prior to the fence is the extension table on the right side. As I unboxed the table I was saddened to see a crack on the corner of the table where it may have been dropped. Needless to say I was not happy. I called SawStop and explained the situation. The gentleman I was speaking to showed a genuine concern regarding this and said he would ship a new one out right away. This is where it gets good again. He one-dayed the table top and I had it in about 18 hours. Nice right? But here is where the SawStop company blew me away . . .They never told me it was coming and sent a free saw blade! Now THIS is customer service at its finest. I give this assembly rating an A grade and they made the Dean's List top of the class with their customer service.
Using the saw - WOW! What a fine piece of equipment. After it quickly runs through the system check you pull the start lever and the motor is smooth on start up and quiet. The fence glides very nicely all the way across the table. The mobile base works very well and the saw moves freely. It has hooks on the left side of the saw for storing the riving knife (more on that in the "safety" section), the blade changing wrenches, the miter gauge (that does not feel cheap at all) and was dead nuts square to the table right out of the box. In fact I had to do very little calibrating on this baby. I really enjoy the mechanics of using this saw. Grade: A
Safety Features - I spoke of the safety check and we know of its blade stopping abilities. The table is very stable and if you didn't look underneath you'd feel you were using a cabinet saw based on how smooth it truly is.
In concluding, This entire process from ordering, receiving, assembling, and using the Sawstop was truly a hassle-free experience. The one snag with the cracked corner was remedied above and beyond my expectations. Also, using this saw is an absolute pleasure. And now I can say (as the title of this posting states) That this saw is of excellent quality that helps reduce my own (personal) anxiety and is worth every penny spent. Thank you Sawstop . . . your product is awesome.
1) The main table is not flat on the rear edge. It is low in the middle and high on the sides. The front edge is flat. As the primary reference surface for this incredibly important tool, this is unacceptable. I contacted SawStop support using the inquiry form on their website and they have not yet gotten back to me, 8 days later.
2) The stamped extension wing tables are garbage. They cannot be made flat with the main table surface because they are slightly bowed. I had to adjust them to be slightly lower than the main table and leave it at that. They flex around like crazy under even moderate weight and pressure. It's embarrassing to have such poor quality wings on this table. You HAVE to buy the stainless wings. I intend to as soon as I save for them (I'm considerably tapped out after buying this table).
3) My throatplate was chipped up on arrival. The gap that had been cut out had all kinds of tearout on both sides and Quality Control let it through. Not a huge deal but it does ruin the aappearance of the saw. Everyone I've shown it to has asked "ooh did you have an accident there?"
4) There's a spacing adjustment that controls the gap between the blade and the brake cartridge. You need to adjust this gap to be just the right size or risk either mistaken contact with the blade or too slow a brake action. My problem? I have to adjust this screw ALL the way in one direction to use the blade that shipped with the saw. And I have to adjust it ALL the way in the other direction to use the Freud 8" dado set I bought. I can JUST BARELY get the adjustment right for both of these. So either the tool is out of whack or the adjustment doesn't give enough range of control.
5) Similarly, the leg levelers did not QUITE give me enough adjustment to get the saw to sit level on my garage floor. It's not a perfect surface but it has no major cracks or slope that I've never noticed. Still, the screws that you adjust to make the foot pads stick out less/more just don't have enough length to get me all legs flat on the floor with the saw level. I had to settle for it being off level.
In a couple of weeks of usage, those are my complaints. Some of them are serious, some less so. Others in the woodworking community are encouraging me to return the saw, and not to settle for manufacturing imperfections on a $2000 purchase. I'm definitely not happy with the radio silence from SawStop support. I don't have a lot of time during business hours to call by phone and it's frustrating that they won't answer the inquiry I took the time to write out - including pictures of the issue. All of this is especially disappointing because all the reviews etc led me to believe that SawStop offers top-of-class fit and finish. Not so.
Another thing I wanted to do in this review was help you understand how this "contractor" model differs from the professional cabinet saws. Here are the differences I have been able to deduce, and what I think about them:
1) The pro cabinet saw comes more fully assembled. The contractor saw requires you to build the table legs, and then lift a 110-pound saw & table unit out of the styrofoam, flip it over, and place it onto the legs. This requires two people for sure and is pretty difficult. From what I've seen the pro cabinet saw ships in one big piece, and you then attach the wings and extension table.
2) The pro cabinet saw has a fuller enclosure around the saw and motor for superior dust collection. The contractor saw has a molded shroud around the blade area which has an integrated dust collection port. But a lot of fine dust winds up on the legs and floor.
3) Better quality controls: more metal and less plastic. I admit that the plastic depth adjustment wheel on this contractor saw feels cheap, but it works just the same.
Sizes of the two styles also differ, and motor size, but the specs will tell you that. I'm not sure what else is different between the two, probably a few more things. But in general I think the contractor saw form factor has a lot to offer. The cabinet saw was just out of my budget, but I have few regrets about that. The only thing bugging me at this point is the quality gripes, and SawStop's lack of response.
Amazing. Every part was labeled well, the instructions came in a huge laminated sheet so there wasn't a need to flip through a manual, and the hardware came packaging like you might find pills or something in. Just push the hardware through the cardboard backing when that step came up, so there was no need to sort out long bolts from short bolts. Simply amazing. The only difficult thing was to lift the main assembly out of the box and onto the base. Quite heavy. I also installed the movable base at this time.
2. The main unit is really great, but I have an issue on the support table. They can easily be bent when moving the table around, and also, the portable base doesn't life the saw very high. I ended up adjusting the rubber feet a bit so that they do not extend down as much. However, the support legs for the extension table are somewhat dissappointing.
3. I feel the saw should have come with the dust collection panel. It is a $50 part but would help with the dust a lot and probably wouldn't have cost the maker much to include it with the saw.
4. I'm not an experienced user of table saws, but this one is leagues above the cheapo dewault I used a while back with its crooked fence. Everything moves very smoothly and is really great to use. The brake feature can be disabled easily but does not seem easily triggered by fairly wet wood.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with it other than a few quibbles.
