I will say that the dust collection/guidance off the SS’s blade guard (without a vacuum attached) is very good indeed. I’ve noticed that with more recent tools (eg Bosch GCM12SD gliding miter saw) that the designers have started to put more thought into this aspect. As I understand it, the kinetic energy of the chips themselves is used to good effect and the dust is channeled to the DC port. I can’t wait to get the cyclone attached.

One area where the Unisaw scores well is the dual front elevation/bevel controls. I would much prefer that to the side arrangement of the SS. In fact that is the reason I didn’t buy the SS ICS. The dust door is on the right on the ICS, and it would get in the way of the cabinet I want to build there. The PCS has the bevel control there, but is much less space-consuming than the ICS’s dust door.
