Even with the upgraded fence, it seems high to me. As far as I can tell from the pics, it’s older technology that has the disadvantages of an outboard motor, an old style splitter vs a true riving knife, and it carries no warranty. When new, the version with the Xacta fence and solid wings would have gone in the $800-$850 range with dealer support and warranty….upgrading the fence later costs more, but he at least had the stock fence he could resell to offset costs. He enjoyed the warranty and support….you won’t, so don’t pay for that. It looks to be in nice shape, and the cast iron wings and mobile base are nice touches, but I’m thinking $400-$450 tops. Considering that you have a $200 gift card and are within driving distance, I’d head to Grizzly and look at the G0661/G0713, or G0715P.
