Hi all
Just got done assembling my new 2000

My son gave me a hand, which made it a bit easier.

I don’t have power yet, because it arrived sooner then I expected, but if works half as good as it looks I’m sure it will be a joy to use.

This acqusition is the center piece of my garage shop rebuild.

Up until now I’ve been using a B&D radial that I bought about 4o years ago. I was able to make it do tricks.

I hope this old dog will have the same sucess with this new toy.

I’ll keep you all posted.

good luck with the new saw keep fingers out of the blade, no matter what use push sticks. IF not and the saw bites you will be looking at it in a whole new light. ;(

I have been trying to wear my PM2000 out for about five years now with no success! It just keeps on running smooth and true year after year.
You are going to love that saw and the blade guard system. I think that is the best in the business, at least that I have seen or used.
Congrats!

Got my new one 4 months ago – I love it. Had a minor issue with extension table and PM quickly resolved by shipping me a new one. No defects no other issues.

Have your say...
