The PM1000 and SS PCS are roughly the same in size and weight (PM is ~40 pounds lighter), but the PM comes with a 52” fence, while you would need to add an extra $270 for a 52” T-glide to the SS. You also get a 5 year warranty on the PM versus a 2 year one on the SS. If you are persuaded by the fear based marketing, then pay the hot dog fee and go with the SS. If you want more versatility and less expensive long term maintenance, then go with the PM.

Of course, you could also save yourself a few thousand by just finding a nice used machine, and use the extra cash for blades, wood, and dinner out with the significant other :)
