A sawbench, also known as a table saw, consists of a single circular blade which is mounted on to an arbor and driven by motor (via a belt, gears or directly).
Nowadays, the blade can usually be moved up and down, and the higher it protrudes from the table, the deeper the resultant cut. In older models, the blade was fixed and the table raised or lowered to adjust the depth of the cut.
Similarly, with newer models, the angle of the cut is adjusted by moving the blade itself, whereas with older benches the table itself was angled.
Benchtop table saws are light enough to be carried by one person and are usually placed on top of a bench or table while being used. They are usually powered directly by a universal motor and are suitable for many smaller jobs but can't deal with wider stock and may not cut as straight as is required due to the inherent vibration.

Contractor saws are larger and heavier than tabletop ones and come attached to a base or stand which is usually fitted with wheels. They can be driven either by one or two belts in conjunction with an induction motor, or by direct drive.
Cabinet benchsaws are the largest in the range, and they're usually made of steel and cast iron, which makes them very heavy. Because of this extra weight, cabinet saws experience very little vibration, so they are able to cut very precisely. Within the closed cabinet surrounding the saw there is usually an induction motor which will generate around three to five horsepower. This motor drives the blade via three parallel belts. Cabinet saws range in size and capability but can all manage much larger stock than benchtop or contractor saws.
Because cabinet benchsaws are so heavy, they tend to last longer than other less expensive and lighter types, because they don't vibrate as much. Because they are designed for industrial and agricultural use, there is a much greater emphasis on efficiency, and the blade height and angle can be adjusted much more easily. They also collect up dust as they run due to the closed cabinet, which makes the working environment much more pleasant.
At Plantlocator we stock a wide range of cabinet sawbenches made by a number of manufacturers such as John Deere, Major and Trakkasaw. Used benches tend to work pretty much as well as brand new ones, providing they have been maintained well and serviced as and when they should be.
