I’m in the same boat and so far what I’ve found in that price range for a cabinet saw with 3hp is the Grizzly you listed or the Harvey (they also have a 2hp model with a larger table). There are several posts floating around on here about the Harvey’s so just do a search. If you want the safety of the Sawstop you can get their contractor saw with 1-3/4 hp motor in that price range. Powermatic has a nice contractor saw in that price range too.

You can always look for an older cabinet saw on Craigslist and Ebay and there are a few other online sites that you can get used machinery from. They will be lacking some of the safety features the new saws have, so if that is important to you then you can always look at some of the aftermarket devices that are available.

If you are like me you will research the heck out of it until you go cross-eyed and then you still won’t know which one to get. Lucky for me I don’t have the funds yet so I am still just in the dreaming stage. Good Luck.
