Consider that PCS 1.75 option. When I was looking for a new saw (SS) I checked a few used ones. I could have bought a three phase ICS and converted it to single phase with a new motor from SS ($300 for the 5HP motor, and another $100 for a new contactor, plus shipping). I passed for some different reasons. But I also talked to them about replacing the 1.75HP motor on a PCS, also possible. It might be even cheaper to buy the smaller motor and upsize. Going from a 3HP to a 5HP ICS was a $400 upcharge, the motor alone is $300. These are all 1 1/2 yea old numbers, but you get the idea.
