It's basically just another Taiwanese (Mao Shan) contractor's saw that
got a big buzz a few years ago when it was picked as "best of" in a few
magaine tests. It has a left tilt blade and a good Biesemeyer style
fence, which are the features that pushed it to the top in the mags. In
terms of quality of machining, motor, etc., it's pretty much the same
as the Powermatic, Bridgewood, and other (maybe Grizzly as well) saws
that come off the same assembly line.
