Made my first cuts on my new 4hp 52 inch table. Absolute perfect cuts with the factory blade. The saw is a beast. Can't wait to use it all summer.
Fit-n-finish and attention to detail top to bottom. Packaging is above and beyond allowing me to receive my table saw without a scratch on it.
Absolutely industrial quality where it's needed and then some. When I ripped 2 inch thick piece of red oak the saw easily cut through, no noticeable change in rpm. After completely setting up the saw, about 4 hours in all, I performed a 5 sided cut using a 24"×24"×.75" piece of plywood to check accuracy. On the 5th and final cut, I cut off a 1" strip and measured with a micrometer for equal thickness end to end. It stayed within. 001" thickness throughout. I would buy again.
Over all, this is truly a fine saw. Solid as a rock and powerful. Two issues that have risen. There is no place on the saw to store the wonderful crosscut tool. It is large and very well made but I am going to have to make a storage rack for it on my wall. Additionally, the attachment with the line to establish rip width won't lock and keeps moving. I am sure this can be replaced by the company although I haven't called them yet. So far their customer service has been excellent so I expect this will be solved rapidly with minimal stress.
The table is flat. The action is smooth. The instructions were intuitive enough - although they don't cover every detail. Everything feels top quality. The only reason I wouldn't give it a full 5 stars is due to the blade guard. For the most part, it's designed really well. But it's missing one critical design feature that can make it bothersome to use: it doesn't pivot out of the way when not in use. If you're only making measured rips and cuts this isn't an issue. But if you're lining up any rips or cuts using the blade as your reference - something I do often - you'll have to remove the entire blade guard first because you won't have any access to it otherwise. I may alter the existing blade guard so that it will pivot up when installed for this purpose. Then lock back down with a pin other mechanism to keep it securely down during the cut. In the past, I've always removed the blade guard from my previous table saws, but I like most of the design elements of this one and really want over-the-blade dust collection. All of that being said, this is a great saw and the value makes it better than the leading table saw in this category, in my opinion.
