I can see it now...my $1300 portable saw stop in the hands of a day laborer who decides to use it to cut his Italian sub sandwich in half and POW! I am out...(what? $200, $300???) to rebuild my saw.
Does that sort of thing happen. Yep.
More seriously, I have never seen a piece of treated lumber from a big box store that wasn't dripping moisture and in need of about 2 months drying time. Won't that trip the brake?
