I have had the Rikon 10-325 for several years now. I did not add any after market parts to it – all stock parts, and it still performs just as well as it did when I got it. for smaller parts it is my go to saw (more so than that table saw).

I got this saw because I wanted something with a high capacity resaw since I have some logs and other thick material that I like to cut down per project requirement for maximizing material. if you don’t need this then you can look at any of the other saws with the smaller resaw capacity, but I personally like the euro steel frame construction compared to the american cast-iron design (a matter of personal taste you could say).

FWIW, 800 for a used rikon seems a bit high. I would price mine with additional blades, and mobile base at 650-700 max if it would be for sale.
