    Feedback wanted: 2006 DW SK500

    Our group is getting ready to purchase a DW SK500. Our dealer can get us a left over 2006, would be sold as a new unit inc full warranty! So, anyone know of any issues with the 2006 model year vs current models that we should be aware of?

    Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

    BTW, we are getting the 6 way blade with it.

    If your budget is restricted to a SK 500 v. a 650, then go for it. If you can afford a 650, do that instead.

    500
    • Walk-behind
    • Gasoline (and underpowered) engine


    650
    • Stand-on & ride
    • Diesel (and good power) engine


    The 500 struggles pushing an aftermarket 6-way blade....7 Diamond blade.

    I hope this helps.

    I agree. The 500 is great and I'm glad I learned on it. But I spent two weeks standing behind the 650 and I was pretty happy that I had the foot stand. We were moving a lot of material between depots and I just don't have the feet for of that walking.

    At first I didn't think I'd like the 650 (The balance on steep grades felt awkward) but by the end of my tour it felt natural.
