Used Sawstop price?

I am a hobbyist, working out of my garage. I have been using an old Sears contractor saw for years, dreaming of a good table saw. I really like the idea of a Sawstop, particularly because my son has taken an interest, and I would hate to see anything happen to him.

So, I saw a used Sawstop CB73230 on CL. It is 7.5hp 220 3ph; since I only have 220 1 phase, I would need an inverter or swap out the motor. I emailed Sawstop, and they recommended swapping motors...to a 3hp or a 5hp

My question:
What is the value?
I know this is an impossible question...machine is 5 years old, looks to be in good shape, has dado insert and 2 replacement cartridges and most/all of the original pieces. Would need a mobile base. Asking $2900, but I was thinking worth more like $2000

Any thoughts?

Paul

I would check the price of a new motor. A person told me a new motor for his Jet saw would be around $600. Saw Stop, might be more.
If the saw was single phase, and in great shape, I would offer 50% - 75% of what it would cost new.

I have a saw stop it is a great machine. My is 7 years old,220 1phase, with a 5 horse motor. I paid new $3400.00 with shipping. 2900.00 sounds a little high but I think $2000.00 is to low. The saw is definitely worth the money.

Westend,
I suspect that you are right, the correct price is somewhere in between. But then, I have to put $300+ into it for a new motor. Do yo have any trouble running the 5hp motor? I am not sure how many amps my 220 circuit is rated, but it looks like the 5hp motor is rated 20.5 amps

I suspect as a hobbyist that a 5 hp SawStop while nice is way overboard. I have the 3 hp SawStop and it is more power then what you will likely need. Cost new was $3000.

I also think the 5 Hp amp draw will also cause electrical upgrade issues. So my opinion is if you can get it and the new motor for $2500 then great. If not Buy a new one. Either way I would get the 3 Hp motor which requires a 20 Amp 220 circuit.

Used Sawstop

I bought a used CB 5hp 1 ph a couple of months ago. Paid $ 2000. Great saw. I agree, I'll never need the 5hp but sure is great to have. Have had so electrical problems.

I have no problems with the 5 horse motor. But I also think for a you the 3 horse would be fine.

Considering you, or anyone else outside of a commercial shop would need to convert the machine to single phase, I wouldn't offer a penny over 2 grand. At that price you can get into the saw with a 5HP motor with everything else included for around $2400.00 after shipping and all... $2900 as it sits is WAY too high...

If you are already tip toeing into the neighborhood of $3,000.00 you might as well wait for a promotion at Woodcraft and pick up a 3 HP SawStop PCS brand new with a warranty...

I agree with Richard in regards to power. As a hobbyist myself, even 3HP would be overkill for me.
