You did not say if is cordless or corded. I’ll pass on B and D- I’m waiting for Makita’s for it will cut it into managable boards. Festoll’s will kiln dry it.

Cordless – uses a Sears DieHard Marine Battery, or size 27M equivalent.
FYI, Festool’s unit only comes in a package with a 2800 CFM proprietary HEPA dust collection system, that also includes a very nice (relabeled small-sized PODS) systainer.

The rotating cutter string looks a bit long. Do you still have your legs?

Or, lets ask a little higher, but below the waist… And if this is a “nut” bearing tree… What falls first the nuts or the tree…. Maybe Saw Stop will come out with “quick” stop, when the rotating cutter makes contact with men, in that area.

This just might have to be my first “power tool” purchase! I will however wait to see if Harbor Freight comes up with a version for $29.99.

I wonder if the SawStop demos would only involve hotdogs, or if Stephen Gass would lay it all on the line to prove his confidence.
