Ordered a Laguna 14SUV last week and it arrived today. Man, this is one purty tool!!
Took a few hours to assemble but it was fun and easy. Heavy, though!

Interestingly enough, they state you need a 30 amp breaker for the 3 HP motor. I'm ok with that since I'm putting in a subpanel and already bought the 30A plug and receptacle. I've even read that in quite a few places - must
use 30A plug and wiring. I've also read that this unit ships with no plug, just a 6' cord. Why, then, does mine have not only a plug but it's a 20A plug? And, to make it worse, the cord is 14AWG. 14! Not 10, not even 12, but 14. And the cord from the magnetic starter to the motor is 14, as well. Oh, and another interesting spec - my PM66 3HP Baldor motor is 15 FLA but this 3HP Leeson motor is 12.8 FLA. I'm thinking the Baldor is a true
3HP and this is 3HP on a diet but it will probably still have plenty of power.
I didn't use/need the manual for assembling the saw but I did open it when I finished to check out the specs on the current draw. Sure enough, it says use 10 gauge up to 15' and 8 gauge if you're going further. It also says it ships with no plug. Obviously something has changed since that was printed.
I hope to get my subpanel finished in the next week and then I can power this bad boy up on a 30A
circuit, whether it needs it or not!
