It looks like it’s a compact saw, not a full size contractor saw. If that’s the case, it’ll be only 22” deep vs 27” deep, and will have a direct drive universal motor (with a cog belt) vs a v-belt driven induction motor. $200 is no deal if that’s a compact saw like a 36-600 (my first saw), 34-670, TS300, etc.

Here’s what a 36-600 type saw looks like under the hood:

This one is not a stellar example, but it’s a step in the right direction if you need a saw soon.

This one is nice, but is overpriced IMO…..$300 would be closer to reasonable.
