David, my 2 cents: If you are going to spend the money (and if you have the money to spend!) get a cabinet saw, not the contractor saw. With the cabinet saw you are getting a solid, heavier machine with solid cast iron wings which is smooth and vibration free; personally I wouldn’t want to go through the hassle of building a base etc. for the contractor saw. I have the 1.75hp SS model; it is a well built machine that is a pleasure to use. That said, there have been a few times I’ve wished it was 3hp, I definitely have to go slow with 8/4 material, and getting through 8/4 maple was a fight!
