I think it is a decent deal. I love our PM66 saws. I have in the past run 2 table saws that were 3 phase 3 hp Unisaws with a static converter and technically speaking there is some power loss but to the end user it is not noticeable. I still could not slow or stall out my blade during feed rate. Technically I only had 2 hp based on using a static converter on a 3 hp motor but I can honestly say that running that saw in that set up felt as if it were nearly twice as powerful as the 1 1/2 hp contractor saws I used to use when first starting out. So don’t be afraid of using a static converter, it will work great.
