Looks like two cutter inserts, 14×14 x 2 and 15×15 x 2.5.
The larger with a radius edge. Both on Amazon under $30 for 10.
3 HP ranges form $2000 to $3300 basically.
Number of cutters from 48 to 72
4800 to 5200 RPM
All are two speed feed rate, 3 HP
Shop Fox, Powermatic, and Baleigh , look like the same castings.

As usual, the Laguna splits the specs. For the PM price, 108 cutters, 5 HP an inch wider. Unique cutters maybe

IF of course, I don’t just buy the DW for under a grand. Not sure what a 3 HP 15 inch would really do for me. I would be building a very heavy stand, so “portable” weight is not important. DW is roughly 2 HP.
