I can’t find a review on the PM1000 except what seems like are advertising.
Are these so new, that nobody has one? There are tons of reviews on this site and others about the 1023RWL and most seem to like it.
Just looking for ideas. Will probably be ready in about a month from now.

The G1023RLW is 3hp, and is very well proven. The PM1000 is 1.75hp, and is new….I’m sure its a fine saw, but I wouldn’t consider giving up the HP without gaining something else of significance. I’m also not sure if the PM1000 has cabinet mounted trunnions or table mounted…if they’re cabinet mounted, they’re not the massive yoke style industrial brackets used by the PM2000 and 1023RL. The PM’s arbor is also on a swing arm vs a vertical threaded elevation mechanism with dovetail ways.

As a comparison, the PM1000 guts look more similar to the Griz G0715P hybrid:

Have your say...
