I found a G1023RLW sale used (new in 2011) that was rarely used. It has the mobile base too. Is $950 a good price for this saw? Based on today’s prices, it seems like it.

400 pounds. Hope you have the means to get it loaded/unloaded. That was one reason I bought my saw new. The freight truck driver put it in my garage! :-)

I have a trailer with a nice gate on the back. The saw is already on a mobile base. So loading it shouldn’t be terrible. Getting down the ramp, well we will see. Does the price seem reasonable?

It’s only 2 years old. New price for saw and base would be 1420, that’s without shipping. 950 would be about 33% off. That seems pretty good for an almost new saw.

That was my thinking too. Thanks!

Including a mobile base and shipping, it’d be in the $1600 range new. $950 is ~ 60% of that, which isn’t bad considering the age and class of the saw. If there’s a decent blade with it, and everything is intact, I’d give the full $950….if not, I’d offer proportionately less. Hope you post some pics of your new saw soon!

Go for it. Total cost for my 1023RLW was over $1670.

Thanks everyone. I ended up picking up the saw. There was a little rust on the table top and there are a few nuts and bolts missing for some reason. I’ve got the tables on and flat, and the cabinet vacuumed and cleaned. I’m getting all the missing pieces sorted out so I can finish installing the fence.

That thing looks like a beast, I secretly wish I had one instead of my PM2000.

How was the moving process for the saw? I found the same saw 3 years old for $1,000 an hour away.

Trailer recommended or can couple ramps and a dolly get it into a truck bed?

bevel the motor to 45° to get the center of gravity within th ecabinet. remove th efence rails and extension wings. trailer it or tilt it into a van (rear of top into the van first) and then flip it up onto it’s top. slow and easy drive home unless the unit is secured within the vehicle.

I ended up renting the small utility trailer from uhaul and an appliance dolly. The trailer has a nice long gate. Going up and down with the saw (wings and fence rails removed) was almost too easy thanks to the appliance dolly.
