You don’t know what you’re getting in terms of parts support. At various times European machines from many makers have been imported to the states with middling success. Americans are kind of brand fixated imo. In any case, I have not heard of the saw brand but I’ve seen pictures of similar off-brand saws over the years on catalog sites.

Can’t tell much from the pictures. The sheet metal appears on the flimsy side. Have to wait a while so other owners can chime in.

Interesting… the manual linked on the product page includes illustrations that show “HAMMER” printed on the side of the cabinet. This is NOT a Hammer sliding table saw (at that price!) Any company that is cheap enough to steal illustrations from other manufacturers for their own manuals is not trustworthy. Beware.

It is made in China. I don’t know if Hammer sliding table saws are/were made in China, but my 2020 model year Hammer A3-41 combo jointer/planer is made in Austria (and is an EXCELLENT machine!)

All warranty claims are handled by a third party: YUUTOOL, which is an online marketplace for service providers. Each provider charges their own rates. Beware.

Per the Q&A, it does not accept dado blades, and the “rip capacity” is “0-45 degrees”

The price is too good to be true. Beware.

Sliders are notoriously hard to manufacture well too.

I’ve said that when Sawstop makes a format saw I’ll be impressed. I’m still waiting. I think they’ll license the tech before attempting to make a real slider.

Suggest you search LJ for ‘Toolots’, so you can find the exact same question asked 3 months ago:

Best Luck.

Question for the OP;

What is your interest in this particular company when there are many, more well known companies to choose from.

Better Business Bureau doesn’t rate their CS very high.

That being said I don’t know how high the BBB rates.
