I like the added strength/rigidity of the 2×3/4” ply and oversizing the base for stability. The HTC-3000 is rated for 700#, the HTC-2000 is rated for 500#, while the 10-325 is spec’d at 250#. Is there a reason you chose the 3000 over the 2000?

Based on spec’s, I’m leaning towards the HTC-2000, as it is rated at 2X the saw’s weight. There is a $50.00 difference at WOODCRAFT, that could go a long way towards other shop essentials.

Are there other quality mobile bases that I should/could consider? (Keep in mind that I’m looking for features and low price.)
