Better overall safety built into the unit (blade guard, on/off switch).
So far all cuts have been good.
Like the bay to catch dust and opening to use Shop Vac for capture.
There is a small gap between the fence and the table, which doesnt allow thin material to stay square on the fence when cutting. Need to add a board to the fence when cutting thin material (1/4 inch thick or less).
Damaged shipment required a new back rail to be shipped.
The wheels are a bit cheap. And they really dont lock well when tightening the wheel lock. They busted trying to initially raise the blade (the shaft was stuck). Called tech support. Had to take a pair of pliers, and a little WD-40, to loosen the shaft. Grizzly did ship me new wheels.
The guides were off. They were stretched on install. For example, 2 inches was correct. But as the numbers got bigger, the guide was off. When it reached 20 inches, it was really 20 1/8 inches. And so on. And the guide was all one unit / strip, not two (left guide and right guide) as listed in the parts list. Its as if the incorrect guide was also installed. Grizzly shipped new guides. One says scale label left, the other scale label right. But they are both the same (a strip with scale on left and right)! Ok, now I have two. Took off the old, applied a new one. You cannot help but stretch the guide when applying. So, of course, it was off again. I tried the other, same result. I cannot accurately cut anything over 10 inches when using the guide. I could try again but the guides are already stretched. Now I know why the original shipment was off. Cheap material. Grizzly couldn't design it the old way with a built in guide?
The install instructions were a bit difficult to follow and not always accurate. For example, would be better if the bolts package was labeled.
The fence doesnt have a wheel (like my old Grizzly) for easy fine tuning on guide rail.
Didnt care for the new miter fence. Using the old Grizzly one I have.
