As the name implies, these saws combine features from both cabinet and portable saws. You get broad, cast-iron tabletops paired with 15-amp, 120-volt motors; and though the cabinets are hefty steel, the trunnions are mounted to the underside of the table. You won't be able to carry these saws, but you can easily roll them around a shop.
Good for: Experienced DIYers who want more accuracy and capacity without spending big bucks for a cabinet saw.
What to look for: Cast-iron table extensions; adjustable fence and trunnions; adjustable-height wheels; bump on/off switch; dust collection port.
