I was skeptical of the 4 wheel vs. 3 wheel tripod layout. The 3 wheel
layout does not rock regardless of how uneven the surface is. Although
the SawStop hydraulic base is heavily built it seems to still have all 4
wheels on the floor with 700#'s resting on top, regardless of where it
place it in a 3 car garage. Having said that if there had been a tripod
style base available for the industrial version of the SawStop I
probably would have opted for that style again 2 years ago. The
location of the dust port on this particular model saw was problematic
as far as extension tables and mobile bases were concerned. Fortunately
Sawstop offered this base and HTC, "just in time" changed their out feed
roller extension to work around the dust port. ;~)
