While the features of this saw closely mirror that of the 10in hybrid saw there are three main areas of improvement this saw has that creates a positive real-world performance improvement -
Unlike most other saws that have been on the market for years without modification or improvement, this saw's development has only been completed in late 2016 and uses the latest in table saw design thinking. The carriage has been developed from the ground up with mass and directional force stresses in mind to reduce vibration both running at 90ª through to the full 45ª range of left-hand tilt. The carriage has also been load-tested in deep rip applications with maximum power transfer in mind to reduce the load on the motor and improve cutting speed and performance.
- The fit and finish of the saw is unsurpassed at this price point. From using German manufactured UHMW glide strips on the fence through to multiple CNC grinds on the precision-machined and polished table tops and run-out calibration checked and signed off on each unit prior to shipping, straight out of the box the quality of manufacturing is palpable in ease of assembly and fitment of all accessories.
- The fence is upgraded from the aluminium fence arm to a full steel tubular welded T-square fence with thick 19mm glide strips finished square and slippery for gliding saw cuts.
