Topic tags/keywords: question

I just saw a youtube video put out by Delta about the new 36-725t2. I cannot find anything else about it. I noticed they said it has a 15amp motor as opposed to the 13amp in the original.

Does anyone have any other knowledge?

It’s on lowes website for $599. Looks like a cheaped out version of the 36-5000.

I can’t even find it on Delta’s own site. The 36-725 is pretty popular. I would have thought a new model would have some more fanfare.

Delta announced it on Jan 14th via their Facebook page = Brand New.

Not available for delivery or carried in of my any nearby Lowes stores either.

Vaporware seems like the word for it. I’m in the market and was about to buy the 36-725 but, now I want to know more about the T2.

Looks like she went on a diet losing some side and trim panels but still managed to pick up 15lbs in the spec sheet. All it references for dust collection is a “chute”. It’ll be interesting to see if they also release a couple variations of it and offer a fully cast iron top.

The only difference I can see from pics is they dropped some of the stamped steel trim panels in favor of more tubular supports and it has the little thin stock flip down fence. Would be nice to see options for cast iron wings or one piece rails.

yeah the saw is great as is for the money,aside from less steel sidewalls and a small fence change doesn’t appear like a whole lot of upgrades,sorta like when apple says theres a new iphone out-lol.

From what I’m gathering the differences are the motor, the fence, and the switch. What those differences are, remain to be seen.

Saw it on Youtube, and it looks good. You might want to check it out. I am also considering. Just want to make sure this new model works fine because it’s not cheap and hope there are more reviews. Oh, by the way now Lowe’s stores have it.

I read a review on the Lowe’s website stating that the T2 no longer allows you to switch it to 220v. Can anyone confirm? I’m considering buying it but I already have a 220v outlet in my shop located where this saw would be placed if purchased.

I hope we all know to take many reviews with a grain of salt… because this person is clearly salty and provided no real feedback on the saw itself.

Per the manual, yes, it can still be switched to 240V use. My assumption, with Grizzly saws as an example, it requires switching out a breaker in the switch as part of the process that must be purchased separately. With this saw being days old, I bet something similar is required here that may not yet be available.

From the manual: “The 120/240 volt, dual-voltage motor supplied with your machine was shipped prepared for 120 volt operation. It can be converted for 240 volt operation. For conversion from 120 volt to 240 volt, please call ahead to DELTA Customer Care at 1-800-223-7278.”

The manual for the 36-725 T2 on the Delta site only says 120V. The manual makes no reference to 240V that I can find. The manual for the original 36-725 does show how to switch to 240V. It does appear the new 36-725/5000 T2 is only 120V.

You are correct – I mistakenly referenced the 36-5100T2 manual in my reference, not the 36-725T2. I was quick to click on a picture rather than verify the model number.

The link I posted is funky because it takes you to the old 36-725 even though it is supposed to go to the new T2 model.
