another positive experience with 113 saws, here. i have two. a c-man with a t2 fence and a ridgid 2412 with a 1036 fence (36” rip capacity). love them both and sold a unisaw i refurbished in order to keep the 113 style saws.

the linked CL saw is not 3hp, but probably more like 1 hp, maybe 1.5 but certainly no more than that. my c-man w/ a t2 is a 1hp that rip 8/4 hardwoods without incident. it needs a splitter and blade guard which are available from several sources. if you can find a herc-u-lift, it’ll bolt right to that base and it’s thenbest open stand mobile base ever made (currently out of production, but they pop up on CL/ ebay every so often). replacing those stamped wings with CI wings will help dampen vibration and smooth out the saw’s performance.

EEngineer…..sorry to disagree. IMHO, the best contractor saw ever built was the ridgid 3612, which was built by emerson for ridgid. the 3650/60 was, i believe, built under the ridgid brand by one world technologies, which also builds for ryobi and other brands.
