The PM1000 is really built more like one of the better hybrid saws….a little beefier, but more along the lines of the Jet Proshop and Laguna Fusion. It does have cabinet mounted trunnions, but they mount to the center strut of the cabinet as opposed to the corners, and are much smaller and lighter duty than those on the PM2000. Same fence, and is still a nice saw, but not as robust overall. There’s about 194# difference between the two. It’s good to clarify what you get and what you don’t get because they look so similar from a glance.

The best way to grasp the difference is to pull the tops of both and take a look under the hood. Since that’s not feasible for most of us, a pic is the next best thing. Unfortunately, it’s proven difficult to find a good pic of the guts of the PM1000, so the third option is to look at the parts diagram of the trunnion assembly and compare the two…the scale is skewed, but will give you some idea.



For comparison, here’s a pic of the guts of the Jet Proshop, which are nearly identical to those of the Laguna Fusion:
