I think your assessment of sawstop owners is incorrect when you say they won’t say anything negative about the saw. I think probably all of them are equal qualities so you could say that about any owner. I am an owner of a 1 3/4hp Sawstop cabinet saw and you are correct, I don’t have much bad to say about it but I didn’t like the standard blade guard so I switched it for the upgraded one. I really can’t say anything else negative about the saw and I can tell you about one of the perceived negatives is that it takes too long to change out to a dado blade. I timed it and it took about 30 seconds to switch the cartridge so that is not accurate. I would buy this saw over again unless I was cutting a lot of wide and deep dadoes in which case I would probably opt for the 3 hp version. It is so accurate I can reset it up and reproduce parts exactly the same as the original as I am sure the other saws will do also. What convinced me to buy the Sawstop was I figured that I would never forgive myself if I didn’t buy it and seriously injured myself since I needed a new saw anyway. I know some people will tell you that that injuries are caused by the operator and that is a great reason but no matter how much people say it, accidents, wether out of the operators control or negligence keep happening, I like the peace of mind in knowing that technology is there. I do believe it is everyones choice so now you must make yours.
