I have around 1200 to spend. Im really in the market for a new one due to not wanting to have to deal with a used. I am considering the the grizzly hybrid. Any other recommendations?

120 or 220V power?

I think Laguna and Jet have some saws in that price range. The Grizzly 690 or 1023 can be had for close to that sometimes.

Save a couple more buck and get a cabinet saw with a better fence.

120 or 220 are both fine. Just started building a 30×40 building that will have a fairly large wood shop in it.

If you have 220v, and can save a couple hundred more, the Grizzly G1023RL or G0690 are distinct step up from any of the hybrids….much beefier under the hoods. Both are a lot of saw for the money.

The Jet Proshop is arguably the best of the $1200 hybrids….cabinet mounted trunnions, cast arbor carriage, nice fence, well proven, etc. The Laguna Fusion has similar guts under the hood, but it uses a two-piece aluminum fence rail vs steel on the Jet. Either of the Grizzly hybrids are a good bang for the buck too.

p.s.: If you’re wiring a new shop, definitely install 220v (aka 240v). ...it’ll allow you to run bigger motors, and the wire may cost a bit less.

No… It’s 240V,. wrongly called 220V. :-)
