While Rockwell made a few models of contractor saw, the Unisaw was a cabinet saw. Better understanding will be made by knowing the differences. Besides Cabinet, Contractor, they have added Hybrid in the past few years, and Jobsite.

This will help sort them out for you.

Buying used is a good way to save money starting out. The look of what you are checking out will tell you much about overall care the saw has gotten, but the big question is does it run, and when running does it sound like a table saw, or a large grinding mass of bolts.

I think it’s better to let a few pretty good buys slip by, while you are finding info, than to rush to buy, and find you haven’t spent wisely.

Best of luck.
