    Its more comparable to the Ridgid 2400, but without the folding stand and LSA. The reason the motor is enclosed is because it is direct drive. It might make a fine contractors saw, other than moving it around would be a PITA. As far as Im concerned nothing (in the less than $700 range) beats the Ridgid 3650. Im not even really biased because I still havent bought one yet. (maybe a little biased, but not too much)
    I think you've got the wrong Hitachi TS...the OP is asking about the C10FL full size contractor/hybrid saw. The motor is an induction belt drive 15 amp motor that's enclosed...their literature claims 3hp, but the motor plate claims 1-1/2hp (wonder which is correct! )

              Not sure about you guys, but, that 2 piece rail seems like a turn-off for me and the Hitachi isn't the only saw I've seen with a 2 piece rail either.
              How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
