Look at it this way. The 1023 is the last table saw you will ever need to buy. It should serve you well for many years. Powerful, runs quiet and heavy!

If you don’t have a fork lift, you should pay for the lift gate service. That way, the driver will put it on the ground for you when it is delivered. Actually, my driver (SAIA Freight) drug it up my inclined driveway and into my garage. Me and my son in law also helped push the box also.

I also bought the mobile base but I haven’t moved the saw and don’t plan to move it unless it is deemed necessary. This saw will outlive me and probably the next owner. I bought it in Dec 2012 and never had any issues with it.

Good luck in your search.

BTW, I didn’t read through all of the replies. I don’t have time. I have sawdust to sling! :-)

My work table/bench is also the outfeed table for the saw.
