I just bought a Steel City 35990g “contractor” saw. I got mine for $500 from my local warehouse that was selling their floor models. utterguys.com sells them for the retail price and far less that the true cabinet saws.

It takes much more work to seal the cabinet for dust collection but so far I’m happy with it. 32” rip to the right and 24” to the left. It passes the nickle test and cuts 4/4 maple without slowing at all.

Can view it by clicking it in my profile and workshop.

It gas a granite top not cast iron, so far I’m in love with the granite. The only downside to granite is you can’t tap into it for future fence upgrades. That said every single Steel City table saw fence on every single saw they make. I can bolt their 50” fence on to my granite top if I choose to upgrade in the future.

After sealing the “contractor” saw I have dust collection is fantastic! it weights about 400lbs. I call it my contractor cabinet saw.
