After much research, I finally pulled the trigger on a new saw (got some "projects" at the new house). I got a Milwaukee M18 battery powered saw. Let me tell you, this thing is the bugs nuts! It runs on an 18 V lithium battery and has tons of power. The cuts are clean and the adjustments precise. I would never have imagined that battery power would be sufficient for such an endeavor.

This thread is worthless without pics. How many batteries to get a full days work in? or is this something for an occasional rip of a piece of flooring, or a craft project ?

Integrated Tool Tracking, available through ONE-KEY™, provides full visibility to how and where tools are being used across your network of jobs and users. The app will track all ONE-KEY™ compatible devices within 100 ft range of your phone.

They make up to 12.0 AH batteries in the M18 line now. Not cheap, but they have a long life and long run time.

I have the dewalt battery table saw and my honest opinion is the saw is good for extremely small jobs. I only use it when we have to work in condos. You can't cut all day or even half the day for that matter. We also have the battery powered milwaukee sliding chop saw, I'd give it a nod. It cut's all day on one battery and then some. Only downside is it's 8 1/4 blade. Wish it was bigger so we could cut larger sized crown molding.

I looked at those before buying my last saw. I needed 1 0" blade cutting depth, or I would have one also. Nice portable saw, what stand did you get?

Is it just the extreme convenience of not having to use cords or are there situations where you regularly use a table saw where there is no power?

I ask because you can get a pretty nice little corded portable table saw for $150 from Home Depot.

We have a DeWalt saw in Ontario. It's corded, with a shape blade, I think it will do all but dado work.

We use a corded saw for 90% of our jobs. It's just nice to have a battery one sometimes when you have no power easily available, like condos. Sometimes we have to go upstairs to the residence and measure then go down to the parking area to make cuts. It's a real pain when you have to run two or three cords together to get power to a saw then all the residents bitch and whine about cords in the parking areas.

I'm a fan of the Milwaukee M18 line of stuff. I've got a 1/4" impact driver, 1/2" drill, a finish nailer, 1/2" impact driver and a circular hand saw. Love m all. But a table saw? Crazy. But these batteries keep getting better and better so why not I guess. I've got an old Delta plug in portable table saw that I pretty much hate its good and beat and its tried to do me in a couple times through the years but I don't seem to need a table saw much so I suffer with it.. I guess if I do upgrade this Milwaukee would be worth a look. Enjoy your new saw RicG!

The capabilities of the new battery stuff is amazing.
That said, they're really not that great yet at running something that gets turned on and runs over a minute at a time with high torque loads. It would be great for a small job, and maybe lighter then a 120v. table saw.
There's a place for each depending on your job needs.

There is a place for the battery powered tools. I've got several of the Ryobi ones. For our kitchen renovation they are working extremely well. I got the trim nailer and it works great. The little 6 1/2" circular saw has done everything I need. When I rebuild my deck, I'll pull out the corded saw. But for little things here and there. Just grabbing the battery powered one does the job and saves time.

unless you use it all the time the battery will be gone in no time.
I wouldn't even consider a battery powered tablesaw. if the battery is tough enogh it will cost a fortune to replace it.

The image posted above by wabigoon is correct. I have been working this little guy for three straight days. It has done very well for my jobs (trim through cuts, rabbet cuts, miters, long rips (10 foot 1x4's), 2x4 and 2x6 crosscuts, etc. It's easy to carry (41 lbs with a carry handle) and set -up. The battery is still on the original charge. So far, my only gripe is with the T-groove miter gauge... it's a POS plastic turd.

I've got the 60v Dewalt.

It's a very good saw and completely portable. Handy.
