It's a very good saw. If it's in good condition, that's a good price.
For a SCMS, it's a monster. Quite big, heavy and well built. The million dollar question is whether you have enough space to set it up or space to store it. I bought mine virtually unused fro a guy renovating an old 3 storey terraced house from a basement workshop. It was too big for him. I have a single garage workshop and it's a challenge for me too. I can't use it inside.
I fitted mine to a Dewalt DE7400 rolling tablesaw stand with the slides aligned parallel to the stand, not across it. This makes it quite practical to pull out onto the drive for use, but I wouldn't want to load it in and out of a vehicle. The saw's fastened to a ply board to adapt it to the brackets. That said, there's a good top handle and a younger, stronger guy than me could pass on the stand and lift it into a van and out to a jobsite as long as he didn't have to carry it far or too often.
Take a very serious look at the dimensions - especially full forward to full back - before you decide. For home use, if you have a double garage and crosscut enough stuff, yes. I like it far too much to sell it but as a single garage guy it's really too big for me. If you want that motor I don't think there any other options out there ...
The pluses :
That induction motor is a rare feature and excellent. So much smoother and quieter than a brush motor. Personally I love it.
Cut quality is great with a sharp blade.
I like it far more than the big 10" Makita that I use regularly.
Dust extraction is very good for a SCMS. It's better designed than most out there. Theres a big difference between using with and without a vacuum.
What are your alternatives ? The Bosch axial glide saw - smaller, smooth action, no induction motor. Kapex, much smaller footprint. no induction motor. Anything comparable will be 2-3x the price of the Metabo if not more...
