Hello All:
After a little trip to the ER last week I intend to buy a SawStop and just need to decide between the Pro and the Industrial. My google searches have turned up several posts from when the PCS was just introduced in which people were critical of the trunnion design claiming it was designed more like a hybrid than a true cabinet saw. The guys at SawStop really encouraged me to go for the ICS saying it was easier to work on whereas the PCS was harder and mentioned the trunnion too. I’d actually prefer the 27” table depth of the PCS because I have some nice cast iron extnesion/router tables I’d like to use (of course I could make those work with a spacer of some kind).
Anyway, I’d like to hear if issues with the trunnion ever really emerged. If so, I can ante up for the ICS.
Any of you had issues with the PCS and wished you’d bought the ICS?

No problems … love my PCS-175. Fits the shop space I have, and is a well-engineered piece of equipment.
