Buying used mk101 - 1.5 hp vs 2 hp model?

What kind of difference are we talking in cut quality?

Right now the 2 HP model is $450, and the 1.5 model I've got talked down to $300. Which one would be the best bet?

I was looking at the dewalt 36000 new, but I think at the price of the used MK I may have to settle for now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. It will be my first tile saw purchase

I think the 2 hp one is the MK Pro. Mine was 2 hp MK 101 Pro 24. Had it almost ten years (was stolen) without any problems whatsoever. Probably still going strong.....

Edit: Looks like the 101 Pros have 1.5 hp, the rail saws have 2 hp. My old boss has one of the MK rail saws, been going strong since '04-05........
