I have to agree that the dust collection that comes with the Sawstop is not reason enough to buy the saw. The collection system on the Sawstop does work well but trim cuts, as you are describing, still will generate fugitive dust. The real value of the saw is in its quality construction and safety features.

And yes you are correct about the sled. Any saw is going to have dust emissions with a sled. However the blade shroud that the Sawstop has inside the cabinet of the saw for dust collection handles dust inside the cabinet pretty well, even when using a sled.
