I went to Home Despot to buy the 745 for $300 but they didn't have it in the store. They had the 7480 instead for $380. It followed me home because you can use dado blades (supposedly you can't with the 745) and you can rip up to 24", which is a real plus since you can rip 4x8s. It sounds great and looks to be well made and thought out, fairly light too, at bit heavier than the 745. I haven't test ridden it yet though but I put one of my cabinet saw carbide blades in it and will find out how she runs soon enough.
