Can’t think of a table saw of any size/power that is direct drive. Also, with direct drive you want to move quickly if you jamb the saw blade and it stops turning, otherwise you will end up with a “no-drive” TS, ie. it will burn out the motor. With a belt driven saw the belt (supposedly) will slip when the blade stalls.
