What cog belt on a direct drive saw? Direct drive means no belt.

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, 34-670, TS300, etc.

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