I’ve finally realized the limitations of my R4512. I want to sell it while the used market is still good. I can easily sell it in my area with the ZCI’s and sleds I have for about 450. Unfortunately after being ripped off to the tune of about $40,000 in the past 18 months by my mother-in-law, our savings took a massive hit. There is still a little room in the budget for a saw upgrade, but I have a HARD limit of ~ 1400.00 out the door (including shipping and a mobile base) I have to buy a house in the next 3 months. It will have a garage, not sure if I will have 220v. I don’t have it now and will not be adding it, however I realize it would be stupid to overlook some 3hp saws. My requirements are pretty simple
1.75 hp is fine. I’ve never wished my R4512 had more HP, and I commonly work with 8/4 stock. I understand I am working it pretty hard though, so longevity can be an issue
Saws I am looking at
JET JPS 10TS (I can get this brand new for 1,100 out the door)
Grizzly G1023RL (This could be sitting in a box for a few months if the house we buy as a detached garage and no 220v available)
What am I missing?
