I’d shy away from direct drive aluminum table saws unless you absolutely have to stow the table saw away after use. I have to stow mine away and have a top of the line Dewalt (DWE7491). I’m surprised that the machine is relatively stable in operation (and the soft-start helps).

If you can manage a semi-permanent placement, as CharlesA mentioned look for a contractor style saw with cast iron, used if you are open to restoring. For new, the Ridgid R4512 (buyer beware…lots of elevation issues reported) and Delta 36-725 (seems promising) are your cheapest options.
