There's hardly any plastic anywhere. The blade never really bogs down. This is my second SawStop table saw and I'm a happy customer. They are not made to go on and back off again for storage. The table is perfectly flat and fence square.

SawStop PCS31230TGP252 Final Thoughts
"Its a great tool."
I also cut some 1/4in birch plywood and it worked great. The fit and finish of this saw is also top notch. I resorted to removing the plastic feet. Packaging was immaculate and intelligently designed. Easy to transport from place to place.
