WOOD magazine review

Contractor saw packs surprising punch

Review Summary

Because I’m used to a 3-hp cabinet saw, I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised at the performance of Delta’s new contractor-style saw. In fact, I could not bog down its 1-3/4-hp motor, even when ripping 8/4 white oak. And despite having stamped-steel wings instead of cast iron, the 36-5000 showed no discernible vibration.
(You can buy this saw with solid cast-iron wings, model 36-5100, for $300 more.) The T-square rip fence needed only a minor adjustment, but then locked solidly without moving or deflecting during ripcuts. And the 30" rip capacity lets you cut well beyond the center of a 4'-wide sheet of plywood. The miter gauge works well, with nine adjustable stops at the most commonly used angles. After I upgraded to a premium-quality blade, the 36-5000 produced excellent cuts with little to no scoring. I like this saw’s split blade guard and multiposition riving knife for keeping the kerf open behind the blade—preventing kickback—and keeping my hands safe. And despite having just a 2-1/2" dust port, dust collection proved exemplary when I hooked it up to a shop vacuum. —Tested by Randy Zimmerman
