    I also just purchased a new 10" saw (contractor) with the mobility wheels hercules on it. Even though I love this saw there are a few drawbacks.
    1.the table extensions open concept. laminants catch etc. I do prefer solid so as a solution I am looking into the process of having a local tool co. fill it level with plastic.
    2. the dust collection system which you purchase extra needs some major improving.Presently boxing in my own with plexi and a hindged door to clean out any large pieces that get trapped.
    3.The way the fence connects at the rear of the machine makes it impossible to get close to the outfeed table.
    these are all minor problems to deal with but could be looked at to improve the saw in the future.
