I have the 14” 10-325 Deluxe with a 1 1/2hp motor. Since I resaw all of my lumber, I would have a hard time justifying having only a 1hp motor as the 10-321 has. I have rarely stalled mine, usually on a very sappy pine >10in resaw cut, but overall I am very happy with the 10-325 Deluxe.

That said, I have considered a larger 2hp motor for mine, and do occasionally wish for a larger 18-20in BS. I suggest that you DO NOT short change yourself when buying a BS. It is cheaper in the long run to go bigger than your current needs are, than to be forced to upgrade after buying “too small.” Just my 2-cents…
