There was nothing wrong with that saw and I had spent the time to calibrate it so it made very accurate and repeatable cuts.
The only reason for me to replace that saw was to get the SawStop safety feature.
In January 2019 I decided to go ahead and make the purchase.
I figured if I was going to spend this much on a saw I should go ahead and get the 3hp motor as well as the ICS base.
The saw came very well calibrated, the blade / table are parallel / square with less than 0.001" error as measured with a dial indicator and jigs.
I really didn't expect the user experience to be any different than using the Delta saw but I am very pleasantly surprised.
Everything about the SawStop is more substantial, smoother, heavier, .... it's just a better machine.
I also didn't know if I would notice the extra horse power but even cutting 1" hardwoods the extra power is quite noticeable.
I don't think about the blade brake feature much at all, but the riving knife is always right there and having it really does give me greater confidence that kickback will not happen.
I know all modern saws have the riving knife but this is my first experience with one and SawStop really got it right.
It's heavy duty, does not interfere with any of the cuts or the Grrripper push pads, and it's very easy to put on / take off.
The brake cartridge is also easy to swap out for the dado stack.
I don't have anything negative to say about this machine.
If you're on the fence about getting one of these I encourage you to go ahead and do it.
Sawstop put a lot of energy into the user experience of receiving and assembling this saw. The hardware is color coded and individually blister packed and the manual is spiral bound, and contains many pictures and simple, easy-to-follow instructions. The setup was a breeze.
Right out of the gate, the tolerances are impressive. Any saw will require some degree of fine-tuning after assembly, but those adjustments have been minimal.
The only noteworthy downsides are that I had a little difficultly in implementing the Industrial-series components with the Professional Series saw (But these were eventually solved) and the safety system means that one has to be more careful and deliberate about evaluating the work-piece for any characteristics that can trip the brake. I inadvertently tripped the brake on day #2 - which destroyed the brand new blade that came with the saw and the cartridge.
Live and learn.
With the aforementioned component issues (I had trouble getting the collapsible outfeed table to work well with the Industrial Series mobile base on the Professional series saw) - Sawstop's Customer Service was excellent, kind and patient.
Using the saw is an enjoyable experience on every cut.
The 3HP motor provides plenty of power for ripping or crosscutting thick stock.
The dust collection is beyond excellent (I added the Floating dust collection assembly, but have run the saw without it, and either way the dust collection is highly effective and efficient.)
I really cannot say enough good things. The fit and finish rival that of Powermatic, but at a much lower price point, and of course if I ever DO make a mistake and put a finger into the running blade, it is comforting to know that the damage will be minimal.
This is my first cabinet saw (only ever had contractor saws until now). The 3hp is a major difference from the contractor saws I am used to.
Hope to never use the safety feature of this saw, but glad to know its there!

My only minor complaint is that some of the paint is starting to wear on the fence rail after only 2 years of moderate use.

YOU WANT THE MOBILE BASE. This machine is over 500# assembled. With the base, you can move it like it was floating on air. This turns out to be very helpful during assembly as well as in a smaller shop, where a little bit of shuffling has to happen for handling big stock from time to time.
Only one tiny complaint - my fence binds a tiny bit when I try to slide it, but I'm sure it will loosen up with some use.

First, you need a metric wrench set to put this together. For me, this was an issue and I had to hit up a neighbor for a set. So, plan ahead for this.
Second, there is nothing in the description on this page that says it needs a 230V 60Hz outlet. This is NOT your standard outlet and you may need an electrician to install one, adding to the overall cost of putting the machine in your shop.
Third, take your time putting this together. It helps if you clamp two straight edges or levels to the top and bottom cast iron wings when assembling. This was a very accurate and quick method to make sure the wings matched the table top exactly.
Once it was together, the only minor adjustment I had to make to the fence was loosening the screws to set the bubble indicator for the ruler. The fence is square to the table top, perpendicular to the table edge, and perfectly parallel to the blade out of the box.

Thank you for your question. I don't know of anyone who has done this, as the blade is a left tilting blade and the rails are designed to hold the 12" cast iron wing to the left of the blade. That being the case, there isn't enough room to the left to attach the Bench Dog. I am not sure if you know, but our standard t-glide extension table was designed to be used with a router. The table provides an area that can be cut for a router plate; the bracing underneath leaves a well-centered opening for this.
