Very good first impression
Have not had a lot of opportunity to use it, but it appears to be all that was advertised. It came practically fully assembled. Instructions were great. Little or no adjustments were necessary as everything was properly aligned. Southeastern Freightlines brought shipping crate into my garage and placed it where I wanted. Driver was very professional and helpful. All in all a very good experience.
All set up and ready to go. Laguna couldn’t have made it any easier.

Maybe this second model suffers from cost cutting?
This review is based on first impressions after a couple weeks of use on the new F2. I think this saw deserves 3.5 stars but I'll go four given the alternative.

Bottom line: This is a very smooth saw from start-up through to shut-down - almost no vibration and no shudder at all but dust collection is a joke and I don't love the fence.

Shipping was straight-forward and timely. The crate arrived in good condition and no issues with lift-gate, etc.

Unboxing went well and I was thrilled that the cast-iron wings were already attached and everything in the crate travelled well. I had to make some small adjustments to the wings but that was easy.

Setup was very clear and pretty minimal. It seems Laguna had a goal to get you up and working quickly - this is as close as you can get to plug-and-play in this category of saw. The fence was easy to install and everything seemed aligned well from the factory.

As I was looking over the saw, I noticed that the 4 inch dust port was actually just a 4 inch connection to a 2.5 inch hose inside the saw. The remaining surface of the port is solid steel - the only entrance into the cabinet being the hose that goes up to the trunnion dust shroud. There is nothing to catch the dust that the trunnion shroud doesn't capture. In fact... there is no bottom to the cabinet at all - it's entirely open. The dust simply falls to the shop floor. It's kind of like Laguna just decided that it wasn't worth it to even try for decent dust collection on the saw so they just threw in the towel and expect you to shop vac your floor and move the saw to clean the pile underneath. I have to admit, this is a real disappointment and I'm deducting a full star for that alone. I know dust collection is hard on table saws but for a hybrid at this price point, the cabinet should at least have a bottom.

The only other thing I don't love is the fence. If your point of reference is a portable or contractor saw, then this fence is probably fantastic. If you've ever used a Biesemeyer or other solid T style fence, you'll find this fence a bit lacking. It doesn't slide as smoothly as other fence systems and doesn't feel as solid or easy to work with for sacrificial fences, etc. I'm not deducting a star for this because I love the 36" capacity and I think it's probably inline with the price point. I also don't find the scale to be very trustworth and it does move very slightly when you lock down the fence. I guess it does the job but it's definitely short of awesome compared to my previous Biesemeyer. Worth noting that the 36" rip capacity is awesome and much appreciated already - I can't imagine having less now.

I am getting some burning on my cuts with a high-end Freud blade so I need to investigate that but it's not consistent.

So, in summary - it is a very smooth saw with a great setup experience, high-quality table and machining, decent fence and terrible (non-existent) dust collection. As for value, I would say it's fair but not great. I'm going to have to put some extra money and time in to address the open bottom cabinet and corresponding dust issue. Between that and possibly upgrading the fence, my total cost will be up in the range of some true 3hp cabinet saws and I'm left wondering if I should have just gone that route.

Mostly very nice
The packaging was very nicely done. Putting it together wasn’t bad, the online videos are helpful. Take your time and check everything. Things like the top being square to the blade are said to be set from the factory, but mine was way off. I also found that the wings didn’t seem to fit perfectly to the top, but by starting at one end, getting it perfect, tightening the bolt, then snugging the next bolt and tapping with a deadblow until it’s perfect, then again for the last I got it close to perfect. Everything works smooth and very well. It is slightly underpowered, but that’s to be expected when buying a 1 3/4 hp saw. It’s great for most cuts and if you just take your time it’ll cut the 8/4 oak nicely. I was kind of confused on the riving knife and if I could use a thin kerf blade or not. I emailed laguna and they said it is not designed for a thin kerf blade. I did put a old one on to try it, and it seemed to work just fine, but ended up buying a full kerf frued fusion and it cuts very nice. I added a couple short pieces of angle iron and a short table extension. The wheels and levelers worked but I wasn’t a fan of picking the saw up and wheelbarrowing it around by the fence guide, so I got a mobile base. My only real complaint is the dust collection. It is terrible. I ripped a couple dozen strips just to try it out and there was sawdust coming out all around the bottom of the cabinet. I pulled the throat plate off and looked in to see about a inch of sawdust in the bottom of the cabinet. I mean does the factory dust collection do anything at all? My solution was to put a piece of plexiglass angled toward the right side of the cabinet and cut a opening and attach another port. Then Y off to the factory port. Kind of rigged, and it sucks to hack up a new saw, but it works 10 times better now. No sawdust at all.

Great engineering but build quality issues.
I've been using this saw for over a month and overall am happy with its performance. The trunnion is very well designed and they achieved their goal of "buttery smooth" adjustments. The arbor has minimal runout and stays parallel to the miter slots once the table is adjusted.
Cut quality with a new blade is excellent. The blade that comes with it is a throwaway. The motor is plenty powerful and runs very quietly.
The riving knife works perfectly with a thin kerf blade and the throat plate does not have the same support issues that the old fusion saw seemed to have.
Unfortunately there are some manufacturing quality issues that may be due to this being a brand new product. One of my cast iron wings is badly twisted and the rip fence is not straight or flat and not welded square to its T-bracket. Laguna has said that they will be replacing both for me, but I've been waiting for a month with no parts arriving yet.
Dust collection is also pretty terrible. Expect to see a large pile of sawdust accumulate at the bottom of your cabinet even if you have a full size dust collector like I do.

Is the table top cast iron?
Allen on Dec 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes
Can it be put on wheels for mobility?
red cypress on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It comes with wheels on 2 corners of the base so that you can roll it around by tilting it. I see nothing that would prevent it from working on an aftermarket wheeled base also. It does not have tabs that would make it easy to bolt it to a separate base.
How well does This saw cut 2" hardwood ?
Gary P on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've used it to cut 2" maple with no problems using a thin kerf blade. A full kerf blade may require a slower feed rate.
