Going to look at one tomorrow from Craigslist and was wondering if anyone has used this particular one. It's 18 inch with a 2hp motor, guy wants $200 for it, good buy?

I just looked for it and its a discontinued model. Most modern saws of that size are welded construction to deal with the stresses of the tension for the larger and longer blades. This one is a cast construction more similar to the Delta 14" and all its clones. Im thinking theres gonna be some frame flex on that one but Im really not sure. For the price, it might be a deal. Hopefully someone that actually knows this saw sees your post.:thumbsup:

Yea, I've been looking for awhile on craigslist and nothing ever decent really shows up, table top ones for $75 or like 10" craftsman for $125. Have always seen people saying grizzly is a good brand and figured for $200 and it being decent size, seemed like a good deal. Hopefully i don't get there tomorrow and he say he already sold it, i called 30 minutes after the ad was posted so was probably the first to call.
