TS3660 vs TS3650

Can anyone tell me the difference(s) with the Ridgid TS3660 and TS3650? I saw an add on CL last night for a TS3650 new in the never open box for $300.00. So of course I'm meeting the guy this evening to buy it from him. I know it's a great saw but I was just wondering if there's any diference in the two? He's also throwing in a new in the box Frued dado set. This stuff was his dads and he passed away in may so thats the reasoning for the cheap prices.

There are two basic differences between those two models, the first is that the 3660 has been beefed up a little in the leg area of the stand and the second is in the way the saw is packaged. The 3650 used to come in two boxes and the 3660 only comes in one. Other than those two differences they are the same saw. That's a great price for a new in box 3650, just make sure you get both boxes as box 2 of 2 contains the fence and rail system.

So other than some beefier legs and different packaging I can expect pretty much the same saw as the TS3660? Does anyone happen to know when they quit manufacturing the TS3650?

I believe they quit making the 3650 a few months ago. Maybe February ish?
