Sorry to add more confusion. If I had it to do over, I’d buy the hydraulic base for another $100. My PCS with the $200 mobile base wouldn’t fit through doors. (For assembly purposes, it’s easier to assemble the $200 base when the saw is still on the styrofoam.)

The $300 base has 4 swivel wheels instead of 2. Every time I move the saw I think of this.

IMHO, I wouldn’t buy something with the plan to lose money. It’s easy enough to lose money without trying.

Over the course of my life I’ve also learned that a tool should absolutely delight you whenever you use it. Having a big smile on your face when you work is how it should be.
