My SawStop (ICS31230) arrived last weekend and is now up and running in the shop. It was shipped with the upgraded blade guard/dust collection and lockdown throat plate (the red version). Anyway, I will do my best to give a review after I have had some time to enjoy the beast. I have included some photos of the big day.

Unloading: It only took six guys to lift it!

...onto the mobile base…

...rolling it up the driveway…

...and home at last!

Thanks for looking, review to follow.

Congrats! It makes me feel better to see how much of a fiasco it can be for other folks to get these machines home.

I only had a crew of my wife and a friend to unload my new PCS from our auto (an SUV). It certainly wasn’t pretty, but in the end we got it done without injury to anyone or the saw and that’s all that matters!

I’m looking forward to hearing how you like the beast.

Hey live4ever,

I am glad to hear that you finally got your SawStop. I read your thread about the unusual experience you had at your local Woodcraft. Congratulations on the new saw.
