Although I have had this machine for only about a month, it appears to be a quality product and functions as advertised. It was damaged during shipment and I worked through that issue with very helpful staff at Grizzly. The 3 spindle handles were bent and they are being replaced by Grizzly. Also, instructions state that no oil is shipped in the machine. Do not believe that even though no oil shows in the sight gage because if you remove the drain plug before "filling" with oil you may be surprised to find a flood of oil draining from the head.
