I might consider this one first for half the price. Especially if this is moving around a job site, the steel wings are a bit lighter.

The tools don't make the craftsman....

Im not sure who exactly thinks 200+ lbs is 'easy to move around the job site'. If you want a job site saw than buy a job site saw. My Dewalt weighs 40lbs and will cut just as good as either of those two saws.

And I personally would never pay 1200 bucks for a contractor style saw.

I agree that you should not buy this for a jobsite saw.

This saw is for shops that do not rely heavily on a table saw, but need something that is stable enough to have 1 guy run a sheet of plywoood over it easily, or to do some dado work. Essentially, this saw is for someone who needs more weight/stability than a jobsite saw, but doesn't need the extra weight/stability and cost of a cabinet saw.

It's not the right saw that would cover your needs.

I agree with those that feel the Woodtek saw is too heavy to be practical as a job site saw but not heavy enough to be a good shop saw. I also think its overpriced. I also like the Dewalt as a job site saw and for less than $1200 you should be able to find something like a Grizzly G01023 for the shop. Rule of thumb for shop saw is "heavier is better" subject to quality and condition.
