I was approached by a friend of a friend who has a SawStop Professional Series table saw for sale and I’m looking at how much it is worth. Its a 110v, 1.75 hp motor, table extensions, mobile base and is less than 2 years old. He has all the manuals, tools, etc. It appears to be in good shape, no rust, dings or heavy scratches. I think he paid around $3100 total. Not very many used SawStops to compare prices to. Any guidance will be most helpful.

Thanks
Quailguy

These questions are always so hard to respond to. At least you are looking at a new enough saw that there should not be any real issues with the machine itself.

A major component of the considerations is location, and the state of the local market supply and demand for a high quality table saw. The second question is how devoted is the buyer to saving a few hundred dollars? And of course the seller’s level of eagerness to sell is an important factor.

If it was really the saw I wanted and was looking for, and it was in great condition, then I’d be thinking I would pay up to 75% of new, maybe 80% in a stretch.

just my two cents. I’d say anything under $2500 is a good deal. You might could get it for less if u wanna haggle. I long ago stopped haggling with friends since it can damage a friendship but since it’s a friend of a friend and we are all different you can offer whatever you want. To me it’s always better to hav the seller make the first price. If he says he wants 3000 for a saw that was 3100 that’s not a great deal and u should probably pass and just let him set on it. Som folks don’t mind loosing money tho so he could always offer it up for a grand to to clear up the space.

Anywhere from 50-70% of the new cost, depending on condition and extras. Not more than 70% for me. The warranty may or may not be transferable, and I believe SawStops have a three year warranty anyway.

I wouldn’t pay more than ~$1800 for it, personally.

Sawstop warranty’s are 1 year, when I bought mine 3 hp PCs, it was 2 year, But changes that you will need warranty work is slim, they are an excellent saw even if you take out the safety feature, RJ

Sawstop’s warranty is 2 years… (for comparison, Delta and Powermatic is 5).

Base price for a new 1.75hp PCS with warranty is $2299 before you add anything else (mobile base, upgraded fence, extra cartridges, etc..). For any other saw, 50% of new would be typical if in good condition.

Cheers,

Thanks everyone!
Seems the saw is going to a relative of his and no longer on the market. I hoped that I could get it for around 2 grand, but such is life. I truly appreciate everyone’s experience.
