It’s a matter of preference. There are those who swear by the safety feature of the SS and there are those who don’t see a need for those safety features. Neither is right or wrong. Both saws are good, but personally, my only gripe with the SS is the cost and inconvenience of a brake trip. When I’m looking at a saw or any other machine, I’m concerned in precision first and quality of build. I’m not terribly concerned with “convenience” as that is different for different people. I find I can work around an “inconvenience” just as you can with an inconvenient item on your car; you just learn to live with it.
A thought about the Delta 10”, 5-hp; I don’t feel you need 5-hp on a 10” saw; for 12”, yes, but not for 10”. 3-hp is perfectly adequate for a 10” saw. Personally, I would go with the Delta, but with 3-hp. Why pay for all that extra power you really don’t need.
