I've had an S45 for about 15 years now, and I can tell you it's not a
cheapseats saw. It doesn't have the resaw capacity of the MM saws, but
it's a rugged smooth running saw with more than enough power for
resawing 10" stock.
It has cast iron wheels and as strong of frame as the MM saws...
Call it what you want, it is still several hundred dollars CHEAPER
than the MM branded saw. I call that the cheapseats version, you can
call it whatever you like

As far as I know, this was the original "Mini Max" bandsaw. When I
bought mine in 1989, there were no other SCM bandsaws branded as
MiniMax. IIRC, I paid about $1200 for mine.
