I am going to buy a new table saw and I am looking at either the Delta 36-725 or Delta 36-5000. The first is $600 and the 5000 is $900 at Lowe’s aside from one being 13 amp to 15 amp does anyone know the big difference here? Thanks Jim

Single piece front rail. A little profit built in… ;-)

I would say the 725 all of the way due to it including the Biesemeyer fence.

The fence is the same.
The split rail is no issue at all.
I will spare you the details, but I got to upgrade for the single rails.
I almost regret the time I spent doing so.
The wings are easy to adjust for flatness, all that you need.
You really can’t go wrong. Plus check my previous posts about how to save big $$.

Thank you for the advice. Sounds like the 36-725 is the way to go. Thanks again
