I have the 3HP PCS – it’s my first cabinet saw, but I couldn’t imagine needing more power myself. It cuts through 8/4 purpleheart without blinking an eye. $1000 more seems like a lot for the “industrial” build quality. The Professional model I have is about 450 pounds. Not sure what sort if operation I’d need to be doing to have that much saw wobble – but it scares me to think about it.

I could see getting the industrial saw if you needed more HP (it comes in 5 and 7.5 I believe), or (as posted above) you were running the saw nonstop.
