This is my first review so please bear with me. I purchased this saw new back in Dec. and have been using it fairly extensively ever since. It was a toss up between this and the Laguna LTS 220 and I picked this as it is 2 hp compared to the 1.75 and it was $100 cheaper (that paid for the mobile base). It” a fairly high tool with a table height of 36” adding a mobile base brought it to 36 3/4”. As I’m a bit of a short a$$ it means a bit of leaning way over to see the blade. It came pre-wired for 220V. As I have a panel in the garage it wasn’t a big deal to add another outlet. The mobile base was a great investment because I have to roll it in and out every day. I found the assembly and set up a breeze. The Mrs. and my self moved it off my truck, unpackage it and put it on the stand. As for set up, it was pretty basic. No adjustment to the trunnions and just a bit to the fence and miter bar. I find the fence is ok, but If I had the extra cash I would definitely upgrade to something with more precise adjustment. Over all. I find this tool to be good value for the money. Maybe not as good a big cabinet saw, but it does what it was built for and it does it well. The 2 hp motor has power to burn. I would defiantly buy it again. I hope this review helps .
