Actually it has the cast extension wings and the 50 inch, so its worth a bit more. If the condition was good I could justify $600. Do you need it to be portable. Contractor saws are in this awkward category where they aren't robust enough to be a cabinet saw, but are generally too heavy to be portable, but they do roll around on a mobile base easily. For around $900 you can get a new Grizzly Hybrid Saw:
True 2HP and much more stable, so that's why I would have an issue with $800 for this saw. While the 50 inch seems nice, its rarely used, I recently cut my 50 down to 32 on my PM66, the shop space was more valuable now that I have a tracksaw for cross cuts.
Aaron, That 64A is a damn good saw. It is one of the best contractor saws ever produced. Full cast iron wings, wider rails, mobile base and a rock solid rip dence. There are already $250.00 worth of accessories built into the saw. If the motor still runs good and the arbor run-out is within specs, I would jump on it. I don't care what anyone says..... you aint gonna find a brand new Grizzly at 1/2 that price. The bottom line Grizzly G0732 goes for $650.00 before shipping with short rails, cheap rip fence, no mobile base, and sheetmetal wings. You wont find any brand new saw for 8 bills with the same quality as this one. I would haggle with the guy anyways because thats what guys do.
