MrUnix. The color is a bit off. It is really a dark green, but under the garage lights it looks a little gold. I agree, even the documentation looks very similar to the Makitia 2040.

I ended up paying 295 for it. Other than dust, it is in excellent condition. The down side is that the documentation says the motor is rated for 1400 Watts or 1.9 Hp. I may need to upgrade to a 3 or 5 hp motor later on.

I have been very lucky with CraigsList over the past year. I picked up an 8” jointer that needed some TLC (I need to put that project up here soon), picked up a brand new shop fox dust collector for cheap, and now this. I am invested about $500 and I have over $2000 worth of machinery. Pretty awesome.
