We took our new G1023RL table saw with riving knife and made it even better by including a built-in router table that doubles as a table extension wing. The router table includes support legs and universal T-track router clamping system, and the Shop Fox® Classic Fence included for the table saw doubles as a router table fence. You'll find that using this system is actually much nicer and more convenient than using a typical router table or hand held router for those cuts where the fence is not required to be offset, especially if the table saw is set up with large outfeed tables. Another great advantage is being able to make laser straight dadoes without having to change table saw blades. Please note: this router table does not work with small trim routers.

Really like this saw 11/18/2019 4:12:08 AM

I've had this saw for almost a year and find it everything I wanted/expected from a quality product. It was a beast to move into shop and setup but finally got it on a mobile base so I can move it when I need to. Everything was setup, aligned from the start. The 5 HP motor is surely overkill for what I make but the price difference between this and the 3 HP made buying it a no-brainer. This thing cuts through thick hardwood better than my old Craftsman 1 1/2 HP through pine. No more blade burns. Fence is accurate and easy to set. Wish the on/off switch wasn't hidden so far back under the fence rail, though. I'll get around to moving it one of these days.
I spent months researching and shopping around before making my decision to go Grizzly and am happy with what I bought. I would highly recommend this saw.
BTW, I'd really suggest making a good crosscut sled ASAP, to get the precision cuts you'd like.

As good as any saw out there without any unnecessary technology. The shop fox fence should have a micro adjustment feature.

I purchased this saw, after doing a lot of research, to replace a 45 year old Sears contractor type table saw, which saw duty in my cabinet shop for years before retiring to my home shop. There is really no comparison with this new saw. Assembly was straight forward with the assistance of the "Unemployed Redneck Hillbilly Creations" Tube video and the Owner's Manual provided with the saw. I would recommend that you either provide a link to the video or produce your own video. Seeing what to do is worth a thousand words. Another suggestion is that, if you are going to use a NEMA 6 twist lock male plug, you provide the corresponding female receptacle and cover plate with the purchase. Shopping for these items was a pain. The first receptacle that I purchased was defective and would only provide one leg of the 220v power. Your technical department helped me to identify the problem. However, the problem caused a delay in my using the new saw. Also, the second box, containing the fence and rails, looked like it had been dropped from a four story building when it arrived. Even the UPS driver was concerned as we examined the box. The fence was fine except for some scratches and black marks. The packing, although destroyed, did its job. The tube lost some of its paint but was not deformed and is functioning well. The only loss was the package of nuts, bolts and washers, which apparently fell out somewhere along the way. Even though the saw and fence arrived in three days after my order, it took a week for the nuts and bolts to arrive from the mid-west. The saw is not fully set up and I've been using it for a week. I am very much enjoying it and am happy with accuracy and ease of use. Very well thought out.

Seems to be pretty good saw. My complaint is with the wings. There is a dip in the center. When you line up the front and back center is high. Line up the center and the front and back are low. Hasnt affected the quality of work that Ive put out that I can tell though.

I bought this saw coming up on a year ago. I have absolutely no gripes about the saw itself. None, the saw is perfect. My only complaint comes from the fact that the router table extension doesn't have a track for a miter or a jig. If it came with just the body of the t10222 I'd probably be a lot happier with it. I plan on ordering that soon, but until then, ive just got a hefty chunk of metal hanging out there.

Beautiful saw, very powerful! Passes the nickel test. Everything fit perfectly. Fence is extremely nice as well.

Bang for the buck. 03/18/2019 2:49:51 AM

Mine is not completely as it comes. I replaced the factory fence rails with 7 foot rails when assembling. The space left in the rails is now filled with a 2.5 maple butcher block router table.

As far as the basics.

The saw has more power than you could ever want. I can cut 29/32 dados with a 8 stack at full depth through 8/4 pine and it doesnt matter how hard you feed it it does not bog down. Big change from my contractor saw.

Out of the box the miter slot was dead buts square to the blade.

The blade that comes with it is not trash. Its not great but it has become my roughing blade.

The riving knife is great. Is adjustable and easy to install and remove.

Im not a fan of the blade guard. It is bulky, to the point the miter gauge will hit it. But it is easy to remove and install. The sides can be moved out of the way easily. Ive only tried it a couple times and have mostly given up on it as I cant get the paper protectors off the sides.

The miter gauge is nice. The stops are spot on out of the box. I just wish there was somewhere to store it on the saw.

The fence is nice. Im still playing with it to get it perfect. Once I get it straight and square it will slip when locked. But Im anal about it.

The inserts around the blade that come with it are crap. The area around the leveling screws is raised and will scratch wood. The dado insert will gauge everything.

The magnetic switch for it is great. Need to buy another for the router.

The height and tilt wheels are smooth as silk.

This saw comes will packaged and crated. It is bolted down to the crate very well. It is heavy and bulky. I used a winch to pull it on the trailer and off into my shop. Taking it off the pallet is tricky. I dont have a cherry picker or any way to pick it up safely... Ill leave it at that. Lets just say that if your going to put it on a roller stand do it now. Pay very close attention when I bagging things. Especially the crank handle/wheels the keys for them are in the bag. Took me a Long Time to find them after realizing this. They say to use wd40 to remove the coating on the cast iron. Let me tell you this. I fully believe that there is absolutely no possibility of a cast iron top rusting with this coating. Skip the wd40 and buy a falling of acetone and a can of paste wax, some plastic scrapers will help. Its on there and does not want to come off. A couple coats of paste wax stops the rust and keeps it slippery.

Im not sure if the specs have been update when the website changes but the amperage for the 3 and 5 hp saws was the same. But it is not. The manuals call for different amperage circuits. This saw will take a 30 amp circuit. I have one circuit for this, and all my other 220v equipment. I made a 25ft 10gauge extension cord for it. Works great.

Overall I dont think I could get more saw for my money. My only real complaint is I no longer have an excuse for my wife of why I havent redone the kitchen, and all her other projects.

A well designed and constructed table saw 03/02/2019 4:52:30 PM

I really love this saw. I ordered the model that comes with both the table extension and the router table extension. The saw and its components are well designed and sturdily constructed. One other thing that I want to relate is how great the folks at Grizzly are to work with. I have been a customer for a number of years now and most of my shop is comprised of their products. I have always found dealing with the company a pleasure and appreciate their customer service. I always recommend both the company and their quality products to my friends who are looking for woodworking equipment.

Don't know yet. Did not received all the parts. 10/15/2018 2:39:28 PM

Not yet sure about this product. Putting it together and get to the extension table and I have only 1 bolt, 3 washers, 1 lock washer and 4 nuts to mount the router extension table to the saw top and mount the legs to the router top. For some reason the one bolt does not get the job done. Apparently they need the SN before they can "release the parts", so make sure you have that information before calling from work and the saw is at home.

Below is the hardware I received for the hardware required in the 3 photos. And no overnighting the hardware on a Saturday, so here I wait. Disappointing. We will see what it feels like and cuts like after I receive the hardware.

I bought this last July & unfortunately my severe back injury prevented me from assembly of my shop. I bought the table saw, bandsaw & Steele planer which was a exchange because grizzly's helical planer was out of stock. It is now July of w018, I had help with setup of tablesaw, looks awesome and the detail of craftsmanship is ISO 9000 !
Can't wait to get making shavings !

I'd buy again! 07/22/2018 8:38:23 PM

I went back and forth for 2 years about whether a Grizzly or SawStop and decided that I wanted a worry-free electronic saw 40+ years from now and not have to worry about all the electronics in the SawStop. I'm very impressed with quality of build and power. The only thing I have yet to figure out is braking system (if any). When I stop the saw, the blade continues to spin for a long time. If you know how to fix this, I'd love to hear your response!

Solid Machine 06/07/2018 12:27:06 AM

Love this table saw! I was waiting for the 3 horse to come back in stock, but gave up and got the 5. I am so glad I did. Re-sawing and ripping smooth like butter. Miter gauge had a little bit of clearance issue in the slots, but a little sanding on it got it moving smoothly. Only thing I had to tune was when installing the fence system which is expected. All other adjustments are set very close to perfect, probably better than I could get it. Only noticeable thing out of plane was the router extension table has a slight gradual rise toward the center of a few thousandths, but well within tolerance of most woodworking. Extension wings otherwise needed no shimming. Great quality overall. My next table saw will be a Grizzly.

Workhorse of the carpentry shop 04/04/2018 1:42:05 PM

This saw has been a great upgrade to the shop, runs great and is much quieter than the cheap contractor grade portable table saw we had before. After installation, I ended up getting a dust collector from Grizzly since this saw is such a beast it produces a lot of sawdust in a short amount of time. I also ordered some table coat oil, and blade coat oil after the saw arrived. The only drawback is I wish I would have gone with the 12" saw, and with the quality craftsmanship of this saw, I don't think I'll be replacing it in my lifetime. Overall, this is an excellent saw!

Best one yet 03/30/2018 12:52:33 PM

Great saw...my third Grizzly 1023 series saw since becoming a Grizzly customer. Set up is easy and saw was extremely true and accurate out of the box. Dust collection and cabinet are both much improved. Overall I'm completely satisfied although some parts were missing from box 2 of 2 due to some rough handling in shipment. Box 1 of 2 was completely wrapped with stretch film to hold the various parts boxes together. I was disappointed to see what terrible condition the packing pallet and boxes were in, but glad it wasn't damaged. The customer service was great in sending me replacement parts that I received in 3 days. Best value for a 5 hp unit by far.

Great Product. I bought a dust collector 110V with this and my dust output into the workshop is 5%. 03/29/2018 6:25:09 PM

I bought this a month ago. Heavy to load into the workshop at over 400 lbs. I love the fence and the smooth starting and stopping of the 5HP 220V motor.
I haven't hooked up the router yet but plan to this weekend. I expect to be just as excited about that feature. I would buy two more of these, but I think this one is going to last a long long time! I will try to use it up though, no doubt there.

Outstanding saw and excellent value! 03/17/2018 5:42:33 PM

I purchased this saw a few weeks ago and only wish I purchased it a few years ago! I was blown away with the quality of craftsmanship and care taken in making each and every component of this saw. Every single piece of this saw is quality. Set up was easy and trouble free. I was very impressed with how accurate everything was right out of the box. There was no need to adjust any component of this machine to get it perfect...just assemble it and start making sawdust!

I have a small shop that makes custom furniture and this saw was the perfect addition to my collection of high quality tools! For years I have struggled to cut through slabs of hardwood with less powerful saws...not anymore! This saw's 5hp motor cuts through even the hardest of hardwoods with ease. I honestly don't know how I have gotten by with out it. Before buying my Grizzly I did a ton of research, both on other Grizzly saws and saws made by the other high end manufactures out there. Needless to say, the Grizzly came out on top in every one of my comparisons. The Grizzly G1023RLWX completely satisfied my need for a high quality, beautifully machined and thoughtfully engineered saw and came in at a price that is absolutely unmatched in the industry! Trust me, purchase this saw and don't look back!

Amazing saw and fence combo. I am not impressed with the safety guard that is advertised as quick release. It is not remotely quick or easy. Something with set screws would be much easier. The location of the release lever is almost impossible to adjust to a safe, secure amount of pressure, and just plain frustrating to try to use. I am sad to say I have felt it more dangerous to use because I can't adjust it to a secure enough level, and don't want it to come loose during operation and get sucked into the blade. The riving knife was able to be adjusted properly so I use that regularly.

Fantastic Saw! Hands Down, Best Value on the Market! 02/07/2018 9:10:16 PM

I'm not going to hide the fact that I love this saw. But to give an honest review, I'll start with the negative.

1. Be aware of the height of this saw. I don't know if there is an industry standard, but I built my outfeed table and work bench based on the height of my previous table saw. The Grizzly was over 2 inches shorter, and that was with the mobile base. I had to make spacers for placement under the saw to get it to the height I needed.

2. The male 220v plug did not fit my receptacle. Yes, it was the same twist lock pattern, but it was a little off. My receptacle was purchased at the big Orange home store, so I can only assume the receptacle was industry standard.

3. Not unique to Grizzly, but a removable plug for the slot in the front of the cabinet (when the blade is at 0 degrees) would improve the dust collection on a saw that is already good in that regard.

4. Also not unique to Grizzly, the window on the fence has a magnifying glass so the measuring tape can be seen clearly. It does that fine, but the reference line is too far away from the tape itself. Moving your head slightly has an exaggerated effect on the reading you get through the magnifying glass. Moving your head one inch can change the reading by a 1/16.

Now the positive:

1. Easy to put together. I've heard complaints about the manual being hard to follow, but I wouldn't know - this saw was so easy to put together, i didnt look at the manual. Not quick, but easy.

2. Dust collection is really good. This model in particular has a shroud around the blade that does a good job of focusing the suction of the dust collector.

3. Dead on out of the crate. The blade was off .001 of an inch from the miter slots. I challenge any manufacturer to do better than that. The "0" and "45" stops were perfect.

4. Fit and finish is excellent. The cast iron was beautifully polished and as flat as you could ever need. The paint on the cabinet was perfect.

5. The fence is excellent. Other than what I mentioned above about the magnified sight window, no upgrades needed on this fence. Super easy to adjust, and locks down solidly.

And if Grizzly is reading this, let me say that I appreciate the way your company does business. This is the 4th Grizzly tool I've owned, 3 of which I bought new. Because you don't do much advertising, because you don't do all the woodworking shows, and because you don't have brick and mortar stores all over the country, you save me money. And not only that, I can be confident I'm getting the product I expect to get. The only surprise I've ever had with a Grizzly tool is that the quality is better than expected. Don't change a thing!

Incredible saw and virtually instant accuracy! Packaged extremely well and arrived with no issues. Had my electrician beef up the power to my garage - and what a differeence. Was using one of the big box orange saws - but needed something bigger and better. My garage is full of Grizzly tools and this one makes itself right at home! This is the best saw I've ever used and it cut through 3" of solid maple without even breathing hard! THANK YOU GRIZZLY!

I have had the go715p hybrid table saw for years and really love it but i needed more cutting width and power so i upgraded to the g1023rlwx and got the long rails to go with it. I love this saw, tons of power and very quiet to. My only complaint is that they dont offer this saw with the long rails already on it. I love all my grizzly tools, i have never had a bad tool from them, and would highly recommend grizzly tools to everyone, you cant go wrong with grizzly.

Great saw 01/17/2018 9:52:05 PM

I bought this saw to replace a Craftsman contractors three quarter horsepower table saw that just couldn't do the job anymore the ordering online was quick and easy and UPS Freight arrived shortly after the delivery was quick and painless and they delivered right into my garage and set it right where I needed it. everything was intact nicely and nothing was damaged in transit the set up took a few hours. I think the hardest part was taking the damn shipping grease off of the table top but other than that it went together nicely and the mobile base was also easy to install I had to modify the cord because it would not fit my outlet and it was just too short but a quick trip to Home Depot fix that with no problem I do have to say this 5 horsepower motor is a beast and cuts through all of my hardwood like butter with no issues I have not tried to use the router extension table yet and I am not sure if I plan to but it is nice having that as an option if I were to give one critique of the entire machine is that the inside gears are utterly Kate with grease that is a huge magnet for sawdust and quickly created a paste around the gears that slowed the working of the mechanisms I recommend removing all of that grease and spraying it with a dry grease spray and that has seemed to fix the problem other than that it's a great machine and for the price I am very happy with it

One year old and I still love it! 10/30/2017 2:06:34 PM

This saw replaced an older Craftsman contractor saw which had served me well but I needed more accuracy and power. This saw provides all of that and more. Assembly was a piece of cake. Squaring the miter slot to the blade with the Craftsman required the loosening of six bolts, two of which were only accessible while laying on the floor and getting a face full of sawdust. On the Grizzly I loosened three bolts...tap...tap...tap...and the table was square. Took about two minutes. The fence adjustment is just as easy. Speaking of the fence, this is a real, rock-solid fence. With this fence and the rail mounted tape and magnifier, you can make accurate adjustments within 1/32" or even better.. Last week I cut a 4" wide rail too short and did not notice the error until I had already moved the fence. I simply reset the fence to a 4" cut. When I compared the new 4" rail to the other they were a perfect match. Repeatable precision is a real benefit. Love it. I had a router mounted on my old saw and this was the clincher in my decision to buy the G1023RLWX. If you have never used a router in a table of this size, find a friend with a saw mounted router and try it. You will buy the Grizzly. I did not use the clamps that came with the saw but drilled the table to accommodate the router and my Router Raizer. With my added outfeed table, I have a router table with over sixteen square feet of working area. I have used it to route an edge profile on a 32" diameter table top. No problem! My G1023RLWX is also much quieter than my older saw though I still wear hearing protection. I had been using my shop vac for dust collection but have recently upgraded to a 2hp system with a 1 micron bag and my dust is now under control. Did I mention power? This saw has all the power I will ever need and then some. In summary, this is all the saw I had hoped it would be and it has upgraded my work by several degrees. Now even my mistakes are made with precision. Thank you Grizzly for a great product at a great price.

As an addendum: Just the other day I was making some V-groove boards for the back of a hutch. I had set the blade at a 22 1/2 degree angle using the angle gauge on the cabinet. I did not use my Wixey angle gauge as the tape on the cabinet would be "close enough." After cutting the boards and in preparation to setting the blade back to 90 degrees I did put the Wixey gauge on the blade. It read 22.5 degrees! Again, thank you, Grizzly.

Like the table saw 10/12/2017 11:41:57 AM

No complaints with function of the table it has plenty of power to do the job. The only thing I am a little disappointed with is the amount of sawdust produced. When you use the plate that allows the blade guard attachment it leaves a wide gap around the saw blade which throws sawdust on the floor. I do have it attached to a dust collection system.

Super Saw! 09/30/2017 10:41:31 PM

I've had this saw for three months now. I'll never have to buy another. Power to spare even when cutting 12/4 hard maple. Assembly was straightforward, alignment was smooth. Haven't tried the blade that came with it, but my Tenryu Gold Medal takes full advantage of that awesome power. I've found this saw to be extremely accurate with predictable repeatability when duplicating cuts. The OEM fence is dead on and I've learned to trust it when setting up a repeat cut after changing settings and coming back to cut another duplicate board. I'm a hobbyist furniture builder and I must say, this saw makes me look like a pro. My projects are coming out tight and square with a whole lot less finish work to achieve great results. Thank you Grizzly, for pricing industrial tools competitive enough for average people to afford.

They delivered this with a lift gate semi truck. Packaging was intact. We rolled it onto my pickup truck and I took it down to the shop. I took apart the packaging piece by piece until the only thing left to get off the truck was the core of the machine on the pallet. It was still pretty heavy. It took four of us to lift it off the pickup. Assembly was very straight forward. It helped to watch other's YouTube reviews on assembly. Great machine.

The quality of the cast iron is high with no pitting as far as I can tell and the table is very flat. The Powder coat finish is also very good. Assembly went fairly well with only one issue. Be sure to relocate the paddle switch before installing the front fence rail as that step seems to be out of order in the manual. All in all I'm very pleased with my purchase. I contemplated other brands but in the end went with Grizzly because of the value delivered.

Has not been a good saw for me. My son took it to set it up while I was on vacation and won't give it back. This saw is useless to me. He loves it!

This is a terrific saw for the money. It easily cuts through 2" lumber without hesitation. It is rugged and well made. Assembly was straight forward. Previous experience in assembling and adjusting previous table saws is helpful but probably not essential. I would definitely recommend 10-2 wire from you circuit breaker panel to the outlet. It is one heavy saw, so make sure your mobile base is up to the load.
I'm glad I opted for 240V and 5 HP. It is aGREAT product.

Initial Review - Great Table Saw 07/31/2017 9:16:37 PM

Easy set up direction very clear, I would recommend getting a friend to assist with the set up, and extra set of hands would have been very useful. I purchased this saw before getting my power run in my shop, so it was killing me having it sitting there waiting for the electrician. Now that I have the power run I have done the fine tuning on the fence. I cant tell you what a pleasure it is to have a saw that is spot on you don't have to breakout the tape measure for every cut... and the power is amazing... I ran a couple of reclaimed red oak boards through 2" thick... was like I was cutting balsa wood... I am extremely pleased
I also purchased the extended rails which are on back order (I received a post card 2 months out saying that Grizzly could not tell me when they would be in stock) a little frustrating since I can't rearrange the shop for the new saw until the extended rails come in. Overall an outstanding product for the money...

Great Saw & Outstanding Customer Service 07/29/2017 3:59:02 AM

I've owned the saw for a few months now. Saw was delivered without any issues. Assembly was easy and everything fit like a glove. Router table is ok, but had I paid attention when ordering I don't think I would've bought this saw. Router table has no tracks for jigs or other attachments you may want to use. You use your table saw fence as your router fence. Saw itself is everything I can ask for and then some. Plenty of power!!!

I just recently had my first warranty issue. My knob on my fence came off and won't go back on. I emailed Grizzly and informed them what happened. I received an email back within a couple hours giving me instructions as to what I needed to do. The next day I emailed the info that was required and within a few hours I received an email stating my items had already shipped. This is outstanding customer service!!! Grizzly has earned a customer for life with me. I've got a few machines I'm getting ready to purchase. I assure you now they will be Grizzly machines.

Thank You Grizzly!!!

Shipped excellently, installation took longer than normal but I am a little crazy about getting it Exact. I do have to say that after the adjustment it was a very true saw. Tables are flat and the whole thing is constructed well. I would buy another but I don't think I will ever need one!

Excellent machine 06/02/2017 1:33:33 AM

This is my second machine. I had an older version. But this newer model is by far the best outhere for the money and quality. Everything works perfectly out of the box. Don't be fouled with higher priced brand name. This machine will beat them straight out. This a professional industrial grade machine for the serious woodworking guys.
I installed the sliding table attachment, and I love this machine.

Love this SAW!!! 06/02/2017 1:12:07 AM

I bought the saw about a month ago. I have been using it to cut small oak trim to full size Walnut door that are 1.75 thick. It cuts like butter! I did have some fine tuning to do on the fence, setting saw stops for 45. It was easy to do, the direction were well written, thank you Grizzly for doing a great job and for a awesome product!!

Heavy, rugged and super powerful! 05/20/2017 2:51:58 AM

This is my 8th grizzly machine. I've had no troubles with this saw for the one year I've owned it. I cut 8/4 maple, oak, Walnut and hard maple with no trouble at all. The extended wing for the router gives the saw extra mass to dampen vibration. I use a 40 tooth Woodworker ll blade. I also have the blade stabilizer on it. When I added the stabilizer the noise level went down considerably. I do change the blade to a 24 tooth ripping blade when I have a lot of ripping to do. It makes a big difference when you're ripping 8/4 maple 8 feet long. The Saw will take an 8 foot plank of maple no trouble at all. The motor hardly even changes tone.
When moving the saw into my shop I had to take the table off because it was too heavy for me to move by myself. When I put the base in its spot I looked inside to check out the belt and the motor and how it was designed. For some reason I thought I'd put my fingers on the bolts that hold the mechanism to the base and no word of a lie every visible bolt was loose! Finger loose! I could turn every one of them with my bare fingers! If I had not removed the table these loose bolts would have gone unnoticed. I shutter to think what would've happened if I operated the saw in that condition? I do not hold this against Grizzly quality because I assume it was just an oversight by a quality control inspector. I tightened all the bolts and had no trouble with the Saw.
I also use an Incra fence system with my saw. It fit no trouble at all and works great in conjunction with the 1023.
The hose for the blade dust collection does get clogged from time to time. This is just a nuisance and takes a little time to rectify.
I am very happy with my Grizzly 1023 Saw. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a high powered tablesaw. This thing is a beast! I don't think there's anything you can't run through it.

Have no complaint. Nice to have a powerful precision machine. Guide Rail is wonderful. Out feed table is even better.

Slight dis-colorization in areas of the machined surface on top after cleaning, but that's a minor issue. Its not meant to be a dinning room table.

G1023RLWX Review 01/26/2017 5:55:16 PM

I recently replaced my right-tilting contractor's saw with the 5 HP Grizzly G1023RLWX left-tilting cabinet saw. I picked it up from the UPS Freight Terminal since my rural location would not have been readily accessible for tractor-trailer delivery. The palletized unit was loaded into the back of my pickup. Once home, I improvised a ramp to unload it.

Setup was straightforward and well documented. I mounted a router base underneath the table top with the hardware provided and added a switch for controlling the router. I mounted a pair of Board Buddy wheels on the rip fence using the 12" aluminum track. If I had to do it again, I would have bought the 24" track. I ended up cutting the 12" track in half in order to position the wheels where I wanted them.

I used the saw to rip and cross-cut 4/4 walnut lumber. The Shop Fox fence required no realignment, working so well that I cross-cut a wide table top without using my cutoff box.

I'm glad that I opted for the 5 HP motor, though I had to add a 30 amp circuit in order to do so. I look forward to many years of good service from this well-designed saw.

Great Price for a Quality Product 01/26/2017 8:17:34 AM

I've waited many years to buy such a high quality cabinet saw, and when I saw the price for this saw that had a built-in router wing, I had to buy it. This saw's precision fence, with the stability and work area of the table, makes it perfect for shaping all sizes of work-pieces with my new router! The fence will provide a solid guide for crisp dados or for using bits without guide bearings. And the saw's power cuts through oak like it was butter. Now I'm looking at all of the other equipment Grizzly offers in their catalogue.

Best Decision 01/26/2017 2:07:02 AM

I recently moved and as a consequence had to sell my Delta Unisaw, which I had for about 20-years, due to cost to transport and storage costs while my new home was being built. When I settled in my new home I went about replacing my large woodworking tools, including the table saw. I first looked at the tried-and-true, i.e. the Delta Unisaw but experienced sticker shock. Saws comparable to the one I left behind (Delta, Jet, Powermatic) were between $2,400 and $3,200, well above the price I was willing to pay. So I started looking at Craigslist for a used saw but my remote location made delivery difficult and good cabinet saws were few and far between. I even considered downgrading to a contractor or hybrid say. Then I found this 5-hp Grizzly. It seemed too good to be true and so I thought it was. I checked reviews until they were coming out of my ears, virtually all of them positive, about the saw and about Grizzly in general. I even called Grizzly to ask specific questions about how and why this saw was over $1,000 less than the nearest comparable (and at that only 3-hp). With some reservation, prompted only by the adage that if it seems to good to be true it probably isn't, I went ahead and pulled the trigger. Best decision I've ever made. The saw is great! I can see no flaws in performance or precision. I married the saw with an Incra fence and it is the perfect combination of power and precision. And even with the cost of the incra fence (which I have long wanted) it was still hundreds less than the nearest competitor. On several occasions I have returned to the house and remarked to my wife how much I enjoy that saw and how glad I am I made that choice. In fact, I was so pleased that I went ahead and purchased a jointer and bandsaw from Grizzly and so far, I am pleased with all of them.

G1023RLWX 12/22/2016 5:33:51 PM

I bought this saw about 2 years ago. I was leery about buying a Grizzly after working with Powermatics and Deltas for 14 years. The saw works just as well as the other high-end brands. Boards come off square and true and the fence does not bind. My biggest gripe is the undermount system that holds the router in place. The edges of the handles are rounding off and the clips are removing paint and making gouges in my router. The saw also did not come with arbor wrenches to change the blade. I wish I could give it a higher rating, as this machine has single handedly changed my opinion on Grizzly machinery.

Excellent Saw 12/03/2016 1:24:26 AM

This is a great machine. I was worried about the delivery as I live in a small town residential neighborhood. Got the lift gate service and the delivery was a breeze. The boxes were in great shape when they arrived, the driver put the saw at the curb and I broke everything down and carried the saw into my basement with my hand truck. The cosmoline was easy to get off with WD 40. The saw went together as described in the manual. I put the thing together by myself with no real issues. This was so easy I would never hesitate to get another piece of equipment from Grizzly. As for the saw it is just plain outstanding, powerful, no vibration, great price, the fence is super. Very happy ! I would definitely recommend this saw and Grizzly.

This thing is a Hoss. A heavy industrial grade tool. 11/01/2015 11:54:51 PM

I have owned my saw for a few years now and haven't been able to run anything through it that would bog it down.

Q & A

Common Questions and Answers about the G1023RLWX:

Q: What are the main differences between the G1023RL-Series and the G0690-Series table saws?

A:Aside from color and outward appearances, there are 6 primary differences between these series of machines: the drive system, dust extraction components, switch lock-ability, blade guard spreader/riving knife release mechanism, the fence, and the country of origin.

Q: What is the difference between the G1023RL-Series and G0690-Series belt-drive systems?

A:The G1023RL-series features a poly-V "Serpentine" belt-drive system, which is quieter and transfers power more efficiently than a standard single V-belt drive system. The G0690-series features a triple V-belt drive system, which does a better job of maintaining a consistent transfer of power when under load than a standard single V-belt drive system.

Q: What is the difference between the G1023RL-Series and G0690-Series dust extraction systems?

A:The G1023RL-series encapsulates the underside of the blade with a dust hood that is connected directly to the dust port via an internal dust hose. This allows a dust collector to remove the majority of dust that falls through the table, and it helps keep the other components inside the cabinet clean. This system requires less cleaning and maintenance than that of saws where the dust falls straight through to the bottom of the cabinet. The G0690-series has a fully-enclosed cabinet with a sloped bottom that allows gravity to direct incoming dust toward the dust port.

Q: What is the difference between the G1023RL-Series and G0690-Series mag switches?

A:The G1023RL-series features a lockable mag switch with an included key-lock padlock. The G0690-series features a mag switch that can also be disabled from accidental use with a special pin, but it does not accommodate a padlock, so it can't be completely locked.

Q: What is the difference between the G1023RL-Series and G0690-Series blade guard spreader/riving knife release mechanism?

A:The G1023RL-series is equipped with a quick-release lever to unlock/lock the spreader/riving knife when changing between blade guards. The G0690-series is equipped with an easily-accessible knurled knob that unlocks/locks the spreader/riving knife with a quick rotation.


FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):

Q: How do I know which size of motor I'll need for my table saw?

A:Assuming the correct blade is installed for any specific type of cut, the answer primarily depends on these three factors: (1) your average stock thickness, (2) your typical wood type or variety, and (3) your anticipated cutting frequency or overall demands placed on the saw. First, it is important to note that with a slow enough feed rate, any of our table saws can cut through a piece of hardwood up to that saw's maximum cutting height. Unfortunately, using too slow of a feed rate can result in burn marks in your workpiece, and using a feed rate that is so aggressive that it causes a motor to bog down will quickly increase the motor's internal temperature to a state of thermal breakdown. Once a motor reaches this state, continued operation (without allowing sufficient cool-down time between cuts) will result in the motor becoming so hot that its winding insulation will completely fail and the motor will die. A larger motor, however, could easily perform the exact same type of work without ever reaching a state of thermal breakdown. With that in mind, your goal should be to select a motor size that will handle the majority of what you'll be cutting on a regular basis, without bogging the motor down. To translate this into a more practical perspective, generally speaking, a 1.5 HP motor used with an aggressive feed rate can repeatedly cut 6/4 (1.5") soft woods and 4/4 (1") hardwoods without bogging down. A 3 HP motor, on the other hand, can repeatedly cut the same type of stock with the same type of feed rate at approximately twice that size without bogging down.

Q: What are the differences between contractor, hybrid, and cabinet saws?

A:A "Contractor" table saw is generally a light-duty saw with an open-stand and is usually equipped with a 1.5 HP to 2 HP motor that can be operated on a common 120V power supply, making it portable and convenient enough to take from jobsite to jobsite for carpentry work, trim work, and small cabinetry or furniture work. To keep the weight down, contractor saws often use sheet-metal wings instead of cast-iron wings, and their trunnions and other internal components use less cast iron or steel, making them much less beefy than those same components used in cabinet saws. A few other typical hallmarks of contractor saws are non-enclosed motors (making them slightly louder and sometimes resulting in a lack of dust collection) and trunnions mounted to the bottom of the table instead of the cabinet (making them slightly more difficult to align the blade to the miter slot or fence). The lighter-duty components used in their construction typically means that contractor saws also cost less than other saw types. The low cost, high portability, and convenience of operating on a 120V power supply, combined with included fence systems that often rival those used on cabinet saws, has historically made the contractor saw a favorite option for the hobbyist or beginning woodworker. A "Cabinet" table saw is a heavy-duty saw with an enclosed cabinet-style stand and usually a 3 HP or larger motor that operates on a 240V power supply, making it the top choice for professional woodworkers, serious amateurs, or production shops that require day-in and day-out reliability and the ability to regularly cut thick hardwoods. Unlike contractor saws, cabinet saws have much thicker castings for the trunnions and arbor assembly, which attach to the cabinet instead of the table (making blade alignment adjustments easier), and they usually have full cast-iron wings, which combined with the beefier trunnions and heavy cabinet stand, give them a lot more vibration-dampening weight. Additionally, the enclosed cabinet stands result in quieter operation and usually have much better dust collection. A "Hybrid" table saw is a newer category of saw that is considered to be a cross between a contractor saw and a cabinet saw. Like cabinet saws, hybrid saws typically have cabinets or stands with enclosed motors (providing quieter operation and easier dust collection) and trunnions that mount to the stand (making blade alignment adjustments easier). Like contractor saws, hybrids are generally constructed with lighter-duty components and materials (keeping costs and overall weight down), and they are usually equipped with 1.5 HP to 2 HP motors (allowing them to operate on a common 120V power supply). Because hybrid saws are often priced near contractor saws and they offer many of the additional benefits that cabinet saws provide over contractor saws, they are quickly becoming the saw of choice for the serious hobbyist or the professional woodworker on a budget.

Q: How do I know what type of blade I should buy?

A:Blade choice is determined by the type and purpose of cut, hardness and thickness of stock, and desired trade-offs between cutting speed versus cut quality. Generally speaking, a blade with fewer teeth cuts faster but makes a lower quality cut, and a blade with more teeth cuts slower but makes a higher quality cut. We offer a wide variety of blades from a handful of different manufacturers. All of our blades are clearly designated by either blade function, cut type, or material type.

Q: What is the purpose of the riving knife?

A:The riving knife is used for non-through cuts. It is a metal plate positioned in alignment behind the blade to prevent the newly-cut workpiece sides from pinching on or pushing against the backside of the blade and causing kickback. The riving knife also acts as a barrier behind the blade to reduce the risk of hands being pulled into the blade if they are positioned incorrectly when kickback occurs.

Q: Can I still use my table saw without connecting it to a dust collector?

A:Yes, but we don't recommend it. Without using a dust collector, the dust will quickly pile up inside and around your machine, resulting in additional cleaning time later. Besides making a mess, fine dust can be harmful to your respiratory system. A better choice is to connect your table saw to a properly-designed dust collection system that at least pulls the recommended minimum CFM for your saw's dust port.

Q: Can I cut metal or other non-wood materials with your table saws?

A:Although our table saws will physically cut many different types of materials, they are only designed to cut natural wood or wood-based materials (plywood, MDF, OSB, etc.). Cutting materials not intended to be cut on a woodworking table saw can result in serious injury to the operator or bystanders, and it could decrease the life of the saw and void the warranty.
