Tablesaw horsepower question (contractor vs cabinet)

mayoutze's picture

Hi,

 

I've own a bosch 4100 contractor tablesaw for 5 years. I am now looking into upgrading to a laguna fusion. I am hobbyist with a small shop and regularly work with 6/4 rough boards. 

 

I read taht my bosch saw has 4 horsepower/15amps and that the laguna has 1.75hp/15amps. I am concerned about such a  difference especially given that if I want 4hp in a cabinet saw or even a hybrid, cost would go up exponentially!

 

Thank you for your feedback (btw. my budget is $1500 max.)
