The alignment issues that plagued the early G0715P, also plagued the R4512 and Cman 21833….AFAIK, those issues have all been resolved. With good setup and good blade selection, all can be good performers for you. The G0715P has a better fence, full enclosure, and solid cast wings. All have table mounted trunnions….alignment is more difficult, but once done, it should stay done.

Hybrids and hybrid style contractor saws with cabinet mounted trunnions are the Steel City models, the Craftsman 22116 (made by Steel City/Orion), the General International 50-200R, 50-220R, and 50-240GT, and the Porter Cable PCB270TS. Some have the yoke style cab mounted trunnions that span the corners of the cabinet, others are supported in the middle by the strut.

These are both cabinet mounted trunnions on a hybrid saw:

Steel City 35925/Cman 22116
