If you are shopping for a miter saw stand, you will find dozens of options. Miter Saw Stand– How do you choose the right one for your use? In this article, I’ll go over a few things to think about in order to choose the right miter saw stand to use.
First, let me explain what a miter saw is. There are many names that you can call them, such as a miter saw, miter saw, or even hacksaw. They are basically one and the same, just different names for the same type of saw.
The type of stand you want will depend more on how and where you use your saw than the exact type of saw you use.
Some people use their miter saw in their garage and want it to fold up when not in use. Many stands have folding legs so that they can be folded down to a small size and removed by a saw for storage. You do not need large wheels as you are not moving the saw a great distance. You can also see some of the stands that have little hard rubber wheels that are more suitable for rolling on hard surfaces. Continue reading more information about this.
Some people bring their work to the job site and are more concerned with the portability of the miter saw stand. If this is you, you may want to see models that have large pneumatic wheels that can roll on rough surfaces.

Some of these models even carry the saw. It’s like rolling around with a hand truck that folds up to be the workbench when you arrive at your job site.
Another important factor in choosing the right miter saw stand is the length of the material you want to cut. Some stands support the miter saw and the material is supported solely by the saw.
This is useful if you plan to cut small pieces 6 feet or less. If you plan to cut longer material, then you will want to adapt the miter saw mount to suit your needs. They can range in size from models that support 10 feet to 18 feet of material and loads of up to 1000 pounds. If you want to cut even longer material, you can combine some models and use them to support the saw, while the second is used as a trestle to support the material.
You can buy additional support brackets as needed
This brings up the other part of the portability factor … the weight. The miter saw stand can weigh as low as 15 pounds or up to 100 pounds and that’s before adding the weight of the miter saw. So even if it has big wheels and can roll on just about any surface, how are you going to unload it when you get there? Do you have a helper or will you have ramps to lower it? Now I know some of you are saying that you can get rid of it without any help, I’m just saying that as I get older, in the long run I have to think ahead about these issues.

So you can see that choosing the correct miter saw holder really depends on how and where you are going to use it. By matching the saw stand to the requirements of your job, you will get much more from your miter saw and stand over years of use. I recommend that you spend a little time reading real customer reviews to help you figure out which Booth will work best for you. There are a couple of models that I wouldn’t buy after reading customer reviews.
