I just looked, and Carbatec got the terminology a bit different, its rip capacity of its smaller saw is certainly smaller than that of the big Sherwood. The 18 Sherwood can cut 470 mm wide boards, and 14" Carbatec 345 mm. The Sherwood can cut 305 mm thick boards, while Carbatec - 200 mm. Sherwood also got a fair bit more power - the saws are really in different classes, so it is not fair to compare.
