34” as per the owner’s manual and confirmed with my tape measure.

Note that is for the saw without any base or the PCS mobile base that allows the saw to sit directly on the floor. I do not have the ICS base that can be adapted to fit the PCS saw, but I believe that it may add a little height.

Thank you Kazooman. I wasn’t sure if the height was accurate per the website. I have a Delta and the website says 35” but it is actually 37. Go figure.

I recently assembled my PCS with the ICS base. I’ll tray to remember to measure it when I get home…unless someone beats me to it.

Glad to help. I used to swear by Delta machines and then I learned to swear at them. Once they sold out I got burned several times on the lack of replacement parts.

I just went from a delta 36-725 to a sawstop pcs with ics base. It definitely sits a couple inches lower than my delta did, but not noticeable. I just know that my outfeed table no longer works, which isn’t a big deal. I will build a new or cut the legs down.

Funny you say that because that is the EXACT reason I asked this question. My outfeed is set up for the Delta so I will have to figure something out. The problem is that my outfeed is a Paulk style workbench, so it’s heavy. What are your feelings on going from the Delta to the SS?

You can always assemble the Sawstop on a platform (a couple of pieces of plywood, really) if you need it higher.

I was thinking along those lines as well, but then there is the problem of moving the saw when needed. If the desired additional height is not too great, I can imagine using the ICS base with appropriate spacers to bring the saw up to the desired height. Probably already been discussed on the forum.

I don’t know what the base of the Sawstop measures at, but it might fit perfectly on the Delta mobile base. It isn’t as nice as the PCS/ICS mobile bases, but it’s perfectly usable.

You and me both! Same old saw, same new saw and base. The Delta gave me 3½ years of faithful service. Now, it belongs to one my coworkers who came over to help me unload the Sawstoop.

We should create a Delta 36-725—> SawStop PCS club. lol. I did the same thing recently. The SawStop PCS with ICS Base is 34-3/8” tall. Definitely lower than my workbench now, so I had to move it altogether. I couldn’t cut enough of the base to make this a viable solution. I have to build a new outfeed eventually.

There is absolutely no comparison. The delta was ok at best. I made a lot of money with it, but it was very underpowered. I bought high dollar saw blade after another to try to make it cut better…. I no longer worry. This sawstop is a beast

Can’t say sucker as it was a great workhorse. Great value for the money at the time and it seems we all bought it around the same time and moved on around the same time. lol. Now we’re all facing the same issues. haha.

I agree. I loved the delta when I got it… but I didn’t realize how little power it actually had until I got a 3hp

I went from the delta 36-725 to an old 1984 restored Unisaw I never had a problem wit power on mine, and really hated to see it go. I will buy a saw stop sooner or later because of my age. I’m getting less Mobile every day seems like, and I’ve got a grandson that’s beginning to get involved. Ive been thinking about the safety factor ever since I ran my finger into the blade, while cutting a thin piece of trim about 3 months ago. I knew the blade was there, it was spinning and it would cut my finger but I did it anyway. DUMB,DUMB,DUMB!

I saw it this way, “Buy Once, Cry Once”. Safety features really worth it and if you’re savvy enough / patient enough, you can find the accessories “Used” on amazon from time to time, which makes it less painful on the pocket. That’s what I did and am glad I went that route. (Items bought “Used”: ICS Mobile base, Overarm Dust collection, ZCI throat plate / ZCI Dado Throat plate).
