Hi All

Do you think this saw is worth the asking price? If not what do you think is reasonable?

I think $225(CDN$) is way too high for that table saw,I’ve seen them for $125 to $ 150, have not heard anything negative about the saw except the webbed extension is probably what people mostly complain about .
I would offer $140 and pay $150 Max.
Here’s one near me,I have the same saw but with a better fence:

That’s about 3 times what a similar saw would be advertised for in my area.

Agree.. too much… and what exactly is a “push guard”?

Cheers,

Yep that’s pretty high. I spent months watching CL before I bought my table saw. That’s a $100-150 saw depending on the condition of the top, motor, bearings and fence. Keep an eye out and you’ll find a good contractor saw in the 1.5-2 hp range for that price or less.
