Agree on the 5HP

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I have a 1.5 HP on my Delta Unisaw and have never seen any need for a larger motor. I work almost entirely hardwood lumber. Short of production ripping of thick hardwood I can't imagine a reason to put a 5 HP motor on a table saw. If anyone is slowing a 3 HP motor ripping 8/4 hardwood they are using the wrong blade or a dull one.
