The reason I say that is, when the saw arrived it was totally misaligned and even though it is bolted to concrete floor, the table top shook vigorously. I did all the alignments, had to get 2 new wheels from customer support (which btw has no knowledge, just runs of scripts) plus ordered new aftermarket poly tires. After that, you cannot only balance a nickel on the top, now you can balance a penny. Consider some time for adjustment and eventually parts when setting it up. I wouldn't expect it to be ready for work right outa the box.
Beside the initial issues, the saw has a great design, which is equivalent to a Powermatic but at half the cost. With the 3hp motor it handles anything one might through at it without bogging down (with a quality blade of course). I use it mainly for resawing 2/32" thick veneer, 12" tall boards of Mahogany or other Hardwoods.
Before I bought this saw, I actually considered to get a Rikon, because I used to have a 14"...
I am a fairly serious semi-pro woodworker, and I finally decided to purchase a large band saw for re-sawing large quantities of Oak and Cherry. I have owned a 16" Grizzly for years, and it works great, but not so great for re-sawing (even with a re-saw blade) so I bought this thing. It arrived exactly on time, well packaged in a wooden frame. It only cleared by garage doors (9 foot ceiling) by 3 inches while on the shipping pallet. Assembly extremely easy. Now for my first and only complaint... It ships with a sissy 3/4" blade that looks like a hack saw blade. The teeth are so close together that the standard blade truly useless. Sooo I order the 1 1/4" re-saw blade and put it on. Changing blades is moderately convenient. It took about 1/2 hour, but it should be much quicker next time. Well, I turned on the Beast and fed it 3/4 in Oak about 8" wide, hoping to end up with 3 pieces about 3/16 thick. I still can't believe how this thing cuts. Awesome! I ran the pieces...
When the saw arrived the wheels were co-planner so there was no reason to use the cool easy adjustment knobs. The motor was trivial to wire up and took only a couple of minutes. The assembly instructions were easy to follow and well written. The mobile base was the right one and makes moving the machine easy. Blade changing is easy, the motor starts quickly and is quiet. The dust collection works well after using it all day I checked the saw and there was no dust in the machine and no noticeable dust above the table during the cuts. Checked if there was excessive vibration and there was none. Table was flat and the miter gauge is true. Great saw and I expect to get many years of service out of it.
