Question new saw but concerned

Hey all, today I got a new job site table saw I guess is what they call it, its working perfect but i am worried about the collapsible "Legs", Is it ok to leave it set up like in the picture 24/7 or is it best to fold it down? in my mind keeping it tilted on its side would be bad for it? not sure on that either I mean if its fine to keep it both ways then cool but I just dont want it to end up all twisted out of flat by storing it one way or the other.

Thanks all in advance for your answers.

Paul...

thats a job site saw...pretty much made to be setup like that. I can't foresee any problem at all leaving it that way. Maybe fold it up once in a blue moon and take it for a walk around the block, just so the joints dont' stiffen up on ya *S*

lol, thank you bill, puts my mind at ease, I don't have much cash these days so purchases like this need to last me until I cant chip the barnacles off it anymore lol so I try to baby them as much as possible,

my old delta was made in the early 90's I believe got it used so not sure this is first saw I have had from brand new It sure is nice to have a riving knife/anti kick paws/blade guard my old one didnt and everytime I read about a kick back or heard about one it would be one of those go out and hold my breath until I finished the cut lol
