I wouldn’t call it a heavy duty saw by any measure …...but depending on price would likely be better than any new smaller saw that i know of.

Seller is asking $900.00. I’m not sure how old it is.
The other choice is Powermatic PWBS-14 CS new list price is approx. $1,100.00
Not sure what to buy. I just want a reliable saw!

I have a Delta 18” and find it to be a great saw. The only drawback is that for some reason it is one of the only models that Carter doesn’t make after market guides for.

So how much would you pay for a modern 14-inch B’saw, such as the Grizzly, Rikon, Laguna offerings? It would help understand your comment, if we knew what you’d set as your price limit for a saw with 12+ inches of resew capacity, and 1-3/4 or more hp?
