With the 5Hp motor and the mobile base, that’s about $3500+, new.

I’ve had a 3Hp for about 4 years now. I expect it to keep working as perfectly as it always has for at least another 15 years.

Nothing has worn out yet, but I only use it about 5 hours a week (actually cutting wood). I try to keep it cleaned, and I have greased the gears and such – once.

Blades wear out (or, at least, dull a little). I suppose the belts will wear. Pretty good motor, so I don’t really expect my light use to wear it out.

Anything’s possible, but I think mine might outlive me.

If I wanted one, at $1600 I’d hurry up and go buy it today.
