Aside from the heavy lifting, you’re gonna love that saw.
I have the 0555LX.
Get good blades, and read the set up instructions carefully.
I use 1/4” 8tpi, 3/8” 6tpi, and 1/2” 3tpi. Those will do most everything ya need.
Be aware that the saw will be kinda “tippy” on a mobile base. Putting a riser on it will make it even more so. Once you’re used to that, you’re good to go.
Almost forgot. Use Loctite on all the frame bolts just for insurance.
