Looks like a good option for someone who absolutely has to have 120V. But if you can afford $2299 for a saw, and have access to 220V, it would seem to make more sense to go ahead and spend $600 more for way more power.

Rich, as to your comment, I would say it all depends on your perspective. I upgraded from a Ryobi bench top saw to a Ridgid 1.5 hp contractor saw, and it’s like driving a Cadillac from my point of view. I’m sure if I had a chance to work on a 3 hp saw for a while, though, I’d find my 1.5 rather weak.
