This is one of the best saws on the market for the small or large shop. It features a 5" round and 5" x 6" rectangular capacity. But what really sets this apart from other saws of this size is the head swivel giving a maximum angle of cut of 60 degrees! Remember how much trouble it is to change a vise backing jaw only to get a 45 degree cut? Not with this guy. The easy-to-adjust head has stops in all the right places. And because the vise backing jaw is rigid on this saw, it is taller, giving it the ability to support the workpiece better. And of course, the machine comes with all the features you'd expect from Grizzly like hydraulic down feed control, easy access wheels for quick blade changes and the right blade speeds to do the job.

  • Max. capacity rectangular @ 0 degrees: 5" x 6"

Good quality, good value. Needs better manual & a video for set up/use. 1/31/2018

I was very pleased with the ease of ordering and rapid delivery (SAIA trucking was great). I called in to their technical services to get the practical information to help me choose best unit for my needs. I'm very happy with the quality and functions of this unit. It is well made and I think it is a good value. I was missing 1 of the additional 1/4" eccentric blade guides, but customer service handled that without any issues. My only concern is the set up/user manual (and the only reason to give 4 vs. 5 stars). Others may be a lot smarter than me, but I had a difficult time figuring out two aspects of this unit that are critical to proper use. 1) how to make a 60 degree cut without hitting the vice. Got my basic answer from another reviewer, but the actual moving of the vice, to my knowledge, wasn't explained in the manual or on the website. 2) I had trouble moving the swivel head from 60 degrees to the rear 45 degrees....the swivel lock handle/lever used to tighten the swivel head in place would bind up as I moved the head to towards the 45 degree mark. I finally figured out that the handle/lever had to be lifted, rotated, lowered to "ratchet" the swilvel lock to loosen or tighten....I had to loosen significantly to swivel the head to the 45 degree mark. Once I figured this all out, it works very smoothly. Others may have known all this, but it wasn't intuitive to me....unfortunately, when I called Tech Support they were unable to answer either question. I'll give them a pass as maybe I wasn't explaining it clearly enough. A design that requires having to move the vice has been mentioned elsewhere and is worth considering....also the base is hollow but there are no doors, shelves, storage. It seems this would be easy to add a shelf and/or some type of access to the hollow interior.......What I most wanted to get across is that I would strongly encourage Grizzly to add a short video to their product information page that demonstrates these and other critical use components of the unit. I'll do a bit more checking on-line and youTube but obviously I missed any demos if present on Grizzly site. Over all, I really like the Grizzly products, the service and the communication. With all the products they offer, it is probably difficult to answer every type of question, but some "how to set up/use" videos would be a great help. I also have a Grizzly Wood bandsaw and will continue to buy/use Grizzly.

A lot better than expected. 1/22/2018

A must have in every shop ! 8/29/2017

If you have any kind of shop, this is a great saw. I only wish the vise handle had a better hand wheel. But that's not a show stopper for me, accuracy and quality is very good. Shopping around this is the best in it's class, this will increase your accuracy and quality of the job and decrease production time, in my machine shop it's a work horse 😀

Great saw 6/3/2017

This is a very good product and excellent for the task

Good Product 6/3/2017

Everything arrived in good condition. Assembly and setup was quick and easy.
I have only done straight cuts so far, but they have straight and square.
Although my manual does not mention it, the saw is also usable as a vertical saw with the fabrication of a small table

This saw exceeded my expectations. Great saw for the money. I have made over 200 cuts and it performs very well. Joey in South Carolina.

Meets and exceeds expectations 2/7/2017

I bought the to build a welding cart and future metal projects. Would recommend you change the included blade for more accurate and faster cuts. The cart required cuts of 1.5 and 1 inch steel tubing along with 1/4 inch plate. All 45 and 90 degree cuts were accurate. Cut speed was not painfully slow in my opinion even with a slow down feed rate when using the saw for the first few cuts. While a chop saw will be faster, I would rather have the accuracy of the grizzly bandsaw. If I were to make a few suggestions for modifications, they would be the following.

Metal Vise Adjustment- The Allen screw for the handle that attaches to the acme screw which adjusts the distance between the metal vise. Please redesign to have the screw go through the front of the acme screw. It seemed to come loose if you had to open and close the vise jaws for multiple cuts.

Vise Jaws - Why don't you make the front and back sides of the jaws the same height. This would allow the jaws to hold for example two 1.5 inch square tubes for a 90 degree cuts at the same time.

All in all this was a very worthwhile purchase. It it a good value for the price.

I bought this a dew months back and it works quite well once you've worked out all the nuances, i.e.- squaring blade, fine tuning valves, etc. One gripe in particular is that the swivel does go from 45 degrees all the way to 60 degrees on the other side of zero but you can't cut opposite angles without moving the base clamp to the other side of the machine. That probably sounds like nonsense, but trust me, it is an issue. You can swing anywhere from 0-60 or 0-45 but you can't swing from 45 in one direction to 60 in the other direction without relocating the clamp. It would end up cutting into itself. Other than that, it works fine.

Worth every penny 12/29/2016

I already own some Grizzly wood working tools so I was pretty sure the quality was there. I purchased the G9742 about a month ago and have cut small and thick pieces and am very pleased.
Check out this cut, 1 1/4" X 5 3/4" steel completed in 18 minutes, not an industrial saw but I didn't pay an industrial saw price either. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10208642989458239&set=a.1163021521788.2023614.1415368863&type=3&theater

Great Saw For The Money!! 4/22/2016

This is a great saw for the money! To get a saw with miter cutting ability for this price is unheard of! Very well built and works great so far! I've only had the saw for a couple of weeks but I've used it a bunch and it seems very well built! So far I am very pleased! Highly recommend!

Good but needs some tweaks 11/6/2015

First thing the air/gravity thing is worthless. Upon first use the blade hits so hard it jambs and even with the feed running at crawl this happens. The fix is to add a set of springs to counter balance the arm. Once that was done the unit works just fine. I use it a lot and so far I am very pleased (after the mandatory fix)
The angle cut is very handy and fast to change and I extended the stop gauge rods to 30 inched each way so multiple cuts are accurate and easy.
As with almost all China made products they work fine but require a tweak or two to actually work.
I would buy another when the time comes and would tweak the same so it works.
