Powered by a three-horsepower, one-Ph motor, the award winning Powermatic PM2000 10-Inch Cabinet Saw sets a new standard for innovation with an array of patented features and massive body design. It boasts the heaviest cast-iron base in its class to virtually eliminate table vibration, oversized cast-iron tables, and a push-button arbor lock that's conveniently accessible from above the tabletop.
The cast-iron base features a built-in, retractable, 4-wheel caster system.
Oversized, cast-iron hand wheels for quick blade adjustment. View larger.
The push-button arbor lock allows for rapid blade changes. View larger.
The built-in dust collection system ensures long motor life. View larger.
Designed with input from professional woodworkers, the PM2000 provides incredible quality, efficient functionality, and long-term durability.
Its refined heavy-duty trunnion mechanism features rigid, box-style cast-iron construction, high-end bearings, and a conical-shaped worm gear drive with an increased contact area to enhance the smooth, solid feel of the tilt and height adjustment.
A pair of oversized, eight-inch-diameter cast-iron hand wheels, each with a large spinner handle, makes blade height and bevel adjustments virtually effortless. And to prevent long-term use from loosening the hand wheels on their shafts, they are locked in place with machined grooves and keys rather than setscrews.
Precision Machined Arbor and Poly-V Drive Belt System
The full-length 5/8-inch diameter arbor is precision machined from stress-proof steel to exceptionally high tolerances for accuracy. It accepts stacked dado sets up to 13/16-inch wide, and because there is no gap between the threads and arbor shank, thin chippers won't hang out of line.
Also, the push-button arbor lock makes for rapid blade changes, while a high quality poly-V drive belt system transmits more power without slippage or excessive noise.
Generously Sized Tables and Extensions
All the high-luster, cast-iron surfaces are finely ground to ensure a smooth, mar-free work surface that provides more support for big jobs and have both a front- and rear-edge bevel for hassle-free work piece positioning.
Measuring approximately 30.5 x 22.0 inches (W x L), the primary cast-iron tabletop expands to 42 inches long when the standard cast-iron extension wings are bolted up, giving you plenty of space for even large work pieces.
Safe, Sturdy Design
The PM2000 also comes equipped with a newly designed magnetic On/Off switch for safety. To prevent accidental start-ups, there's a removable magnetic "key" that disables the switch when it's not in place. For additional protection against damage, a quick-release riving knife greatly reduces binding/kickback risk.
High-Tech Guard System
The PM2000's blade guard and riving knife system can be adjusted tool-free for the job at hand. At the same time, because the riving knife is mounted directly to the blade mechanism, the gap between it and the blade never changes during height or angle adjustments.
This maintains the safety a riving knife affords in virtually all cutting situations.
Get Accuracy and Precision
An industrial-duty 50-inch Accu-Fence System ensures accurate cuts. Adjustable angle indicators on the blade bevel scale for repeatable bevel cuts. Additionally, a heavy-duty, deluxe, micro-adjust miter gauge with a 13-inch extension fence ensures stable workpiece support and easy fine-angle adjustments.
Finally, to facilitate movement in and around the shop, the massive cast-iron base has a built-in retractable, four-wheel caster system.
Dimensions and Warranty Information
The PM2000 measures 37 x 39 x 85 inches (W x H x D), weighs 675 pounds, and is backed by a five-year warranty.

After all the reviews I read I was concerned about potential QC issues. I am happy with what I received and happy is not easy for this critical old man. First thing was to set parallelism blade to miter slot. Got my jig all set up using a digital indicator. Several measurements with the same results: .0000 or -+/-.0005 Yes that's 0 or 5/10,000 from the factory. I don't know call me crazy but that's close enough. As far a table flatness goes the extension lined up very nicely. Laid out a straight edge looks darn good to me. No I did get out the feeler gauges. This is wood working not aerospace. Runs quiet, smooth and almost non existent vibration. Nickel test, nickel did even move. I'll have to get used to how long it takes for blade to spin to a stop. Riving knife adjustment was time consuming and for some reason the riving knife and blade guard splitter don't like the same settings. Switching between the two requires adjustment. I am using thin kerf on both. Purchased separately. Factory 90 degree stop was spot on as well. Did not bother with the 45 degree stop. I like the retractable wheels. Nice to not have to compromise stability when using a mobile base. Accu-Fence is very nice. Flat on both sides not wavy in the least. Measuring indicator is easy to read. Do have few purely cosmetic things. Incredibly minor, you have to look really hard to find them. The extension legs. Folks have complained they tear out from the particle top. I lined up the bracket with the side rail and drilled through so the bracket has one bolt securing directly to the side rail front and back. The Top is an MDF with a slick top surface. The underside is a torsion box like framing of plywood. Satisfactory for purpose in every respect.
Unfortunately, the first example of this sent to me suffered some kind of serious mishap in shipping. After a commendably short waiting time, it arrived in three crates: the largest and heaviest (about 500 lbs.) held the saw base, top, and (detached) iron wings. Another held the wooden extension table, and the last held the fence, fence rails, miter gauge and other miscellaneous parts. After removing the corrugated cardboard that provided shipping protection on top and all four sides and was stapled down to the wooden shipping pallet, I noticed the lag screws holding the heavy base and top had stripped their holes in the pallet, Since the thing seemed otherwise OK at first look-over, I muscled it off the pallet, having no one else available to help me and no hoist.
Only after that did I notice the saw's iron top had suffered an impact on its rear edge hard enough to crack the heavy iron and cause about 1/8" of displacement along a miter gauge slot. After giving the saw the thorough examination I should have done first, I found no other damage, photographed the damage with a digital camera, and sent the picture to Amazon customer service. Since the beast has a total shipping weight of about 700 pounds and I didn't want to have to get it back up onto the pallet (alone, remember), I suggested they could just send me a replacement for that damaged top and I'd replace it myself.
But, no, Amazon insisted on sending me an entirely new complete saw.at no cost to me, and having the trucker that delivered the second one also take away the first one. OK, I guess that was reasonable--we didn't know if some other damage might be discovered later, though it was a bit of inconvenience for me. So, with some careful applied physics, I managed to muscle it back onto the pallet, took it upon myself to re-secure it with through bolts instead of the stripped lag screws, and did the exchange with the trucker when the replacement arrived in reasonable time. No damage on the second unit, so I assembled it and adjusted it, and have been quite happy with it ever since.
I find design fault in only two areas, both related to the tablesaw's mobility. First, as someone else's review has noted, the extension table's support legs have short screws that go into particleboard and pull out very easily if you move the saw without first raising the legs' levelers. That happened to me and I have made modifications for a more secure leg attachment, and added to the legs a floating caster arrangement to let me move the saw without overstressing the extension legs again. The second problem is that the built-in retracting casters, while a great idea, have a maximum extension of only about 1/8 inch. If the concrete floor is not completely in plane--and mine isn't--the cast-iron apron around the saw's base catches on otherwise-invisible irregularities in the floor.
Though not an issue to me, one other thing that some of you may need to be aware of is that the wheels of these same retracting casters are steel and quite small, perhaps only an inch or a bit more in diameter. With the weight of this saw and its minimal clearance when casters are extended, wooden floors may flex enough, or the casters may sink enough into vinyl or linoleum floorings, to also cause the saw to catch on the floor. Though my concrete floor is unfinished, I suspect the metal casters may also scratch up even epoxy-coated concrete floors.
One minor quibble is that the saw didn't come with a second, low-profile, riving knife for non-through cuts. I had to buy that separately, in a later order. One should have been included, as everyone needs to make such cuts and it's not expensive to make, being just a flat piece of stamped heavy-gauge sheet metal.
These minor things cause me to dock one star from a maximum five stars. Otherwise, there's absolutely no comparison between this Powermatic 2000 and any contractor-style saw. Its sheer mass and very low mechanical vibration means it easily passes the standing-a-nickel-on-edge test anywhere on its top. It's also far safer than my old Craftsman, and not just because of its riving knife. With twice the horsepower, it simply powers right through cuts that my old saw would instead have tended to bog down on, grab, and kick back. While not the easiest and quickest ever to remove and replace, I actually use the blade guard on this saw since it is easy and quick enough to not be a hassle. I also love the built-in spindle lock that holds the arbor still without having to have the blade bite into a block of wood while you use the massive, automotive-type combination wrench that is included, though I'd like to see the lock stay in place when activated rather than being spring-loaded. Properly adjusted, this saw has all the accuracy you need, and holds the accuracy well; I only readjust every three or four years, and it's not always needed either.
Though my shop is hobbyist, not production, my Powermatic 2000 appears to have the durability needed for a production-type woodworking shop. Recommended highly.
