My guess would be for someone who wants to spend less than the cabinet saw, and wants more sturdiness than the job site saw? Or they want to buy one saw to fill both needs. Or maybe they rip a lot...

On my Hilti I can scroll through 32nd's, 16th's, 8th's etc. I would have thought all would have the option to get the resolution to whatever is appropriate for the task.

s there any reason you want a 12" dado stack? I haven't cut a dado or groove deeper than 1-1/4" to 1-1/2". I could do that with an 8" or even 6".
