I have the 3hp with the Industrial mobile base. Having the extra power for working with solid wood is something that am glad I have. Your woodworking interests may change in the future and having the extra power when needed is of high value to me.
Either way, you won t go wrong with SS PCS and the mobile base really works great!

The only thing I can think of right now that I’d want the extra power for is batching out things like cutting boards out of 8/4 stock, but that’s something I haven’t done because it would be a pain… I actually have some 8/4 hard maple and purple heart lying around that I meant to do this with.

I’m really leaning towards getting the 3 hp now, but I’m going to have to sell it to my wife that I want to spend $3100 on a saw and base we didn’t budget for when I convinced her she didn’t really need that handbag she wanted…

At least the saw probably has better/easier resale value?
