Wow. Call me Dirtbag.  In 19 years I've only cleaned out my slab saw four times: each time I needed to move it. I find the oil gets dirty, but if it sits for a couple weeks without use, all the sediment settles and stays down.  When I move the saw, I drain the oil and scrape a couple inches of nearly-solid mud out of the bottom. I simply don't see a reason to clean it out more often. The sediment causes no problems in the operation of the saw. It slowly fills up the "bathtub" but the thing is so deep anyway that it causes no trouble. It saves me having to top off the oil so often to keep the level above the blade.
