How much do y’all think this PM 66 is worth? I am told the motor runs but the saw needs new belts and to be “cleaned up” so I can not test it. The top is also removed and sitting next the saw. It’s a 1997 with a 5hp single phase motor.

Can you plug it in and see if the motor runs? I’d offer $250 if you can’t plug it in to see if the motor works, if you can and it does, then offer $350.

Not sure if I can plug it in yet. It’s a “package deal” and I don’t want the package only the saw. Trying to talk guy into selling me just the saw.

I have a grizzly r1023, with a broken front trunnion (just discovered) so I’m not desperate. I’ve just always wanted a PM66.

Chad, if you can’t test the motor walk away. I once priced a 3 HP motor which is proprietary to PM and it was close to $900 IIRC. If the motor works, I would be willing to go up to $500 if you are mechanically inclined. HTH

A running 5hp single phase motor is almost worth 300. The Fence alone is worth over 500

I have a 1967 PM66 with a OLD 3hp (which I have never slowed down) I got mine for $700 and thought I was lucky as heck, and that wasn’t even with a fence that nice.
