A miter saw stand will greatly improve both the usability and the capability of your saw. The Ryobi Miter Saw stand, pithily dubbed the Quickstand (Model #A18MS01), is one of the more inexpensive and yet functional products you’ll find on the market. The miter saw stand has 400 lbs. of holding capacity, so it’s equipped to not only hold a large miter saws, it can support the saw while also provided enough strength of nearly any type of material you’re likely to cut. The stand is made of steel, and it folds up and down so you can tuck it away when not in use, plus this makes taking it to the jobsite all the more easy.

One caveat we found is that while the miter saw stand will fit most miter saws up to 12″, it is not intended for 12″ sliding or larger sliding miter saws. This is likely due to a potential problem with stability caused by the back-heavy nature of those types of saws.
The Ryobi Miter Saw stand has adjustable length extension arms that have smooth rollers for facilitating multiple cuts across a single piece of material. There are also positive stops for repetitive cutting. Quick release mounting saw brackets mean that you can quickly release your miter saw and fold up the stand for ease of portability. And when it folds up, it really folds up – the collapsible legs and retracted extension arms make this a truly portable solution.
As for adjustability, the material supports have tool-less height controls and we found that the system worked well with non-Ryobi branded saws. This is a solid product, and if you can find it, it’s around $125 or less, making it a great deal.
