I m in the same boat at the OP. I know I m going to get one, but now I need to figure out “where” to buy it from. There aren t any local dealers so I will have worry with the freight thing. I ve read some horror stories here on that.

Interested to see what your source for the saw is. In other words, who are you buying from?

usually Woodcraft stores are everywhere. I think you are in Mobile. There is one there. They’ll put it in your truck for you but you’ve got to offload it. I did it myself but it took some creative thinking. The delivery cost is often $250 so even if you need to rent a uhaul it’s worth it. And when they deliver it it’s often just to the curb anyway.

Here in Maine I drove to NH (no tax) and picked it up myself. The savings were about $400 over what they could have been if purchased in Maine and delivered.
