Exact same saw, in the same or better condition and on an enclosed moble base for dust collection is listed locally in my area for an asking price of $350.. still not that great of a deal IMHO.

Cheers,
Brad

I agree Brad, that is the saw saw that was recently sold by Porter Cable, the actual manufacturer is a company called Rexon. Having had the Porter Cable 220ts which was also made by Rexon I have to doubt the design and quality of that product. Hopefully they did not put plastic plastic bevel gears in that table saw as well.

Those plastic bevel gears in the Hitachi were famous (or infamous). You could adjust the bevel about 14 times before it stripped out. Usually happened right after the return policy window was over.
IIRC, they sold new for $450ish.

Admittedly I know nothing about that saw. I do know location, location, location can make a difference it what stuff sells for. That saw is in Illinois the other saw is in Florida. So it’s really valid point. You should see what used stuff goes for in Alaska.

That is overpriced…I would pop another $75 for a Rigid 4512 (now up to $529), before I bought a no warranty Hitachi.

On any lower end TS, especially the kinds they sell in the Big Boxes, I’d want to check out the throat plate. So many of them have a sheet metal plate, and no room for a thicker one. Makes it challenging to have a ZCI, which is an important safety feature in some operations.

$600 new generally means $300 used. $450 is close to the cost of some comparable new saws with riving knives and warranty.

Nice looking but just a wee bit over priced I think.

Tennessee.…...Be careful about the R4512. I bought one last spring and played HELL getting the blade aligned with the miter slot… LOOOOONG story I have written about it many time on here. Also Had to literally TOSS the supplied miter gauge. It would clank down the motor slot. Very loose! Got a INCA and had to file on the miter slot to get it to work.

Some have said the R4512s out now don’t have those issues but god know what the one you get has issues with.

One of the worse issues with the R4512 is that the BLADE will go in and out of parralel with the miter slot when raised and lowered. MINE doesn’t seem to have that issue. THANK GOD.

BUT after all the Blood, sweat, tears and many many man hours tinkering with my R4512 its a real sweetheart!

Like I have said many time on here….

Agree with all the points made above. I bought this saw for $250 in Fla. about 2 years ago. Very challenging to make a ZCI, plastic gears, thin sheet metal on the base, hole for dust collection in bad location. Sad to say, but, this was a HUGE upgrade over what I had been using previously.
