Update: In the late summer of 2015 Grizzly discontinued the G0700. However this information is still valid when applied to their other 10″ sliders.
If you google “Grizzly G0700 review” you’ll get a few press releases and the saw’s page on grizzly.com. Well I took a gamble on it and got one anyway. I’m happy that I did, it’s well-made and fits into my small basement shop. The sliding concept appealed to me because the sliding table would seem to replace many of the sleds I see others using on traditional cabinet saws. We’ll see! In the meantime it’s worked just fine for me. I’m upgrading from an old Craftsman contractor saw so a 5HP machine with a fresh blade cuts like a dream.
In the meantime I did a short video showing the details that you can’t see on Grizzly’s website.
I A few things were different from the product page from my saw which was manufactured in January of 2015:
- Clear blade guard
- A scoring blade was included, whereas the product description says it doesn’t.
- Miter gauge is a thick, cast piece of metal instead of a thin stamped piece. It’s the same setup as seen on the G0623X.
- The miter fence does not have the end support for long pieces
Here are a few photos I took when I received the saw. In order to get it down into my basement I had to remove the cast iron which also afforded me a view of its guts.
The view through the motor cover hole. No the cabinet does not have a floor.
