I won’t argue any further after this post on the G0690 or 1023RL vs the G0899. It seems you guys have made up your minds on your purchase decision and are just looking for validation. I get it that you are trying to stay within a budget and you want it now. I doubt anything more I have to say will sway your decision but here goes…

The big difference in weight is probably the most important part of the saw, the trunions and the 3 HP motor. Taking the lower priced G1023RL vs the G0899 there is no comparison in the trunions. Whether they are table or cabinet mounted the G0899s trunions are a light duty contractor style mechanism in a cabinet. Buy the G0899 and chances are, if you remain a serious woodworker, you will want to upgrade to a true Cabinet saw sometime in the future. If you get the G1023RL cabinet saw now you cry once and buy once over $220. Your likely only upgrade is a longer 52” fence and table to expand your cutting capacity and maybe a an overarm dust collection device
