They both look like phenomenal saws. How much space do you have? That router set up would be convenient, but it could also be a pain if you want to leave your saw fence set but need it to support an aux. fence on your router area. Sure would be nice to have all that table length on the #2 choice. I think you can't go wrong either way. Just curious, why are you not considering the G0690 series? They have that Leeson motor which is a fairly well thought of name in electric motors. I think some Leesons are USA built still, though I don't know about that one. Just curious. Also, I will just throw this out there. Our country isn't a manufacturing country as much as a consuming country now. That being said, one can still support the economy by buying foreign tools locally. I say this b/c it's almost impossible to find new USA iron. If you do buy locally though you'll support that store, it's employees, and your local economy over an order from out of state. Flip side is you are supporting one of Grizzly's three warehouses and its employees ordering from them too, so buy USA I think actually goes deeper, but buying new helps the little guy keep a job too.
