A ruggedly made all-steel saw with a 2mm thick galvanized table, for use either in the workshop or out on site. Wheels and handles make for easy manoeuvring around the workshop and the legs fold up for transport in a van or estate car. Although saws of this type are usually used for ripping, accurate crosscutting, either straight or angled, can be carried out using the bearing guided sliding table (supplied as standard). Other features of this excellent site saw are the braked induction motor, rear feed-off table, dust extraction from both above and below the blade and an optional right hand extension table. The JTS-315 S is available in both 230V (16 amp supply maybe required) and 110V (requires 5kVA transformer with 32 amp socket) for site use. Supplied as standard with rear feed off table, 36T TCT blade, rip fence, sliding table, dust extraction interconnecting hose, and service tools.

Slightly dissappointedI bought this saw really as an experiment when putting together my home workshop, rather than buying a more expensive saw and discovering it didn't fit and couldn't be used effectively. It is of course a site saw and not really intended as a workshop saw, so my review may be skewed in this sense. Putting together was pretty simple and didn't take too long. Adjustment is limited and simply not easy to achieve accuracy, riving knife adjustment isn't there. I also found it difficult to get the extension tables flat in reference to main table, and even when I did, they soon moved again. Extraction isn't great and the dust cover extraction is a waste of time. The fence is fairly flexible and will move enough to cause inaccuracy or blemish in cuts, the side table extension wasn't the best fit and location with main table slightly tortured. The wheeled slider (left hand side) tends to get blocked up with dust and become more difficult to move. This saw will cut to a reasonable depth but it does slow down and if you get twist can stop. The frame isn't that robust and you have to lift quite high in order to get the wheels onto the floor, Its difficult to imagine moving far, I just moved a few feet just to get out of the way in workshop. Having said all this, I did use this saw a lot, I probably pushed its limits a bit (my son is in Forestry so we do get some big wood to deal with) and I learnt from using it. I have subsequently purchased a much higher spec saw but for a lot more money. Ultimately it works, and like anything, you get better results if you maintain it well and operate within limits and take time.

Exellent sawI've had this saw for nearly two years now, and have had only a small problem with having to upgrade to a 20 amp trip (because my dust extractor comes on automatically ) if you set the saw up properly, it will cut properly. I am a cabinetmaker and this saw is accurate. Its a good size for a small shop and if needed it can be easily moved around.
