I m looking at the same. The Stallion has some good reviews but I think I d prefer 2hp. According to Busy Bee s website the table on the CC208 is only 27” x 32”. I thought it might be a typo but it s stated in two places. That seems tiny for this kind of saw. I can t find any reviews of the Magnum but it looks exactly like the General 50-200 and on the KMS website even had the same product number. I was thinking about a Grizzly but the shipping plus customs may add a few hundred bucks compared to something I can just pick up at a store here in Calgary.

Most of these types of saws generally have a main table that’s 27” deep x 20”, plus the width of whatever extension wings are added….usually 10-12” each for an overall width of 40”- 44”. Can’t help but wonder if the 32” is a misprint. You could call the dealer and ask them to measure the overall width of the table and wings.

Also, Craftex and Grizzly are often pretty similar, but Craftex is sold directly in Canada so no customs fees.
