A rolling stand is the perfect accessory for your miter saw. With one, you’ll never have to clear off a workbench to get to work. Plus, the stand makes it simple to move the saw to a new location. Let’s take a look at two of the top miter saw stands on the market to see which one will be the best for you.
Bosch T4B Gravity-Rise Miter Saw Stand
Professional contractors have nothing but praise for Bosch’s heavy-duty T4B miter saw stand. Sure, its steel frame is heavy at 76.7 pounds—but it has wheels. That beats hefting and carrying your miter saw from place to place. It’s also very quick to set up and take down.
The T4B is compatible with a wide range of miter saws because it has universal mounts. It doesn’t matter if you have a Bosch saw, a Makita, or the black and yellow. There are adjustable rapid release brackets with a movable clamp to secure the saw in place. Once it’s mounted, you can use the stand to roll it where it needs to go.
Another very useful feature is Bosch’s Gravity Rise System. It makes it effortless to raise the frame and saw for setup and takedown. The T4B stand has a maximum height of 48.42 inches with a maximum length of 103.15 inches. At this size, you can rip materials up to 16 feet long.
If you’re working at a site where the ground isn’t even, that’s no problem for this miter saw stand. It has adjustable leveling feet that telescope out and lock into place. And when you need to transport the stand, the 8-inch tall pneumatic tires can handle rough terrain.
More features of the BOSCH T4B miter saw stand:
- Covered by warranty—register within 8 weeks after purchase
- Measures 27.75-inches wide
- Adjustable height out feed up to 1 foot in size
DEWALT DWX726 Rolling Miter Saw Stand
Bosch isn’t the only tool company selling a top quality miter saw stand. DEWALT’s DWX726 is popular among the pros, too. But there are a few differences between it and the Bosch T4B.
The first feature that sets the DEWALT stand apart from the Bosch is its high weight capacity. Its tubular steel frame can support up to 300 pounds. That includes the weight of the miter saw plus the material you’re cutting.
Unfortunately, the size of the material it can support is only half that of the Bosch stand. The DEWALT DWX726 can only manage up to 8 feet. And if you’re working on uneven ground, the DEWALT doesn’t have levelers like the Bosch does.
Like the Bosch T4B, the mounting rails on the DEWALT stand are compatible with a wide range of miter saws. You’re not limited to using only DEWALT saws. But the bolts for securing the DWX726 saw are not quick-release clamps like the Bosch has.
But the DEWALT stand is almost ten pounds lighter in weight, a bit easier to lift into the back of a truck. Like the Bosch, it has pneumatic assist for raising and lowering, and that makes setup and teardown almost effortless.
When the DEWALT DWX726 is extended, it measures 98 inches in length. Its maximum height is 32.5 inches. Those dimensions might be easier to manage than the Bosch if you have a small workspace. When the stand is folded up, it’s only 17 inches wide, very compact for storage.
More features of the DEWALT DWX726 miter saw stand:
- Covered by a 3-year limited warranty
- Solid rubber tires
- Can also support some planers as well as miter saws, but not table saws
If you typically rip large materials, the Bosch T4B rolling stand may be a better choice for you. It can support pieces up to 16 feet long. It also has two telescoping legs for use on uneven ground. Plus, it has quick-release clamps for quick mounting and removal of almost any brand of miter saw. The Bosch stand would be ideal for pros who travel to various places with challenging on-site conditions.
While the DEWALT DWX726 is lightweight and has pneumatic assist for setup and takedown, it is a little limited compared to the Bosch stand. It can only support up to 8 feet of material for cutting. It doesn’t have levelers for coping with uneven ground. This miter saw stand would be better suited for workshop use.
