According to the specs, the Ridgid AC9945 Miter Saw Utility Vehicle weighs just 57 pounds and extends to an overall length of about 9 1/2 feet.
This station is designed to pair with the Kapex saw that many high-end finish carpenters like to use. The two extension wings give continuous support and provide extra work surface that is ideal for trim work, and simple flip stops allow repetitive cuts.
Made of aluminum, the 35-pound DWX723 folds into a slender, 6-foot-long package that totes easily and doesn’t crowd a pickup bed. Setup is a simple matter of squeezing release levers and swinging out the legs before securing the saw.
This stand won a Editors’ Choice Award from Tools of the Trade magazine in 2002 because it unfolded in a minute to become a long and sturdy 18-inch-wide stand, and it had an adjustable deck height to accommodate almost any saw.
In a recent JLC Tools & Equipment forum, several contributors, including Connecticut remodeler Phil Herzegovitch, said they liked Ryobi’s A18MS01 miter-saw stand. Herzegovitch has now been using two of these stands for more than five years.
