Overview

G0605X1 12" 5 HP Extreme Table Saw

Designed to handle the largest of panels.

The G0605X1 12" 5 HP Extreme Table Saw with side and outfeed table extensions is designed to handle the largest of panels, providing ample workpiece support before, during and after the cut. The precision-ground cast-iron table with right extension measures 69-1/2" x 78-3/4". Both side and outfeed extensions have built-in storage shelves below the tables.

The 5 HP, 220V, single-phase motor powers the 12" circular saw blade through natural and man-made wood products, laminate covered wood products and some plastics. The machine runs smoothly and quietly thanks to the poly-V serpentine belt drive system.

A digital readout for the blade angle allows you to set and cut precise bevels every time with consistent results. The sloped cabinet floor efficiently directs saw dust into the 4" dust port.

Choose between using either the clear plastic guard with steel splitter or the interchangeable riving knife to help prevent binding and kickback.

Like all Grizzly table saws, the G0605X1 comes with a 1-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)

The G0605X1 manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The complete and easy to read manual makes it easier to assemble and maintain your saw.

The Grizzly Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based. Parts and accessories for the table saw are available on-line and shipped from the Grizzly parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.

Good Table saw for the price 07/02/2020 5:47:11 AM

First off I am not a professional wood worker, I'm a software engineer (20 years). So I am comparing this saw to a small 10 inch Dewalt Table saw. The capacity of the saw is really nice because it actually has an out feed table and a large side table. Yes, I could have built those for my Dewalt, However the other 10 inch Table saw needs to remain portable for jobsite work.
1. It came well packed, no parts missing, everything fit.
2. On my first cut, I just set the fence to 28" and made a cut. It was Spot on.
3. It's quieter than my smaller table saw.
4. The out feed table is a mind-bender to figure out how to attach, would have been nice to see a picture of that. No big deal.
5. I made no adjustments to the saw, other than using a machinist square to set the blade to vertical. The digital readout was reading was off a tiny bit, so pretty easy to get that perfect. The new blade with 5 HP cuts 1.25 inch flooring like cutting paper.
6. I bought the 12 inch saw so I could re-saw 2x4s and make trim, again sharp blade and 5HP mows through a 2x4 like nothing, can't do this on a 10" saw without making to passes.

If you don't own a 12 inch table saw, you will be super impressed after making big cuts. The nice thing about big tables is you feel really safe because your hands are a mile away from the blade.

Solid Machine 06/29/2020 5:18:48 PM

Good solid machine. Packing was reasonable, but the screws securing one of the side rails of the Out-feed Table were stripped, probably when that carton was dropped somewhere along the line. There was no visible damage to the carton and nothing was detected until the items were unpacked. It was repaired with a little "Wood Hardener" to stabilize the particle board so the screws could be re-installed. Since this was not a "load bearing component", there is no stress on the rail or the screws. As mentioned in other reviews, the Dust Collection leaves a little to be desired, but it is adequate. Manually cleaning the Motor Compartment occasionally solves the problem.
One bad issue: The nine M8-1.25 x 12 Flange Bolts that mount the 91-3/8" Fence Tube to the 91-3/8" Front Rail are TOO SHORT. With the "Flanges" on the bolts, they will only engage the Tube a little over 1 thread, and will strip out if any torque is applied. They MUST be replaced with nine M8-1.25 x 18 Flange Bolts (or bolts with washers).

Great Product! 03/31/2020 12:48:43 AM

Product arrived and is better than I expected. The 5 hp motor is strong as it should be. I did upgrade the provided blade to a Forrest blade.
For the price, I find this saw to be well worth the money.

very nice machine 01/13/2020 4:36:20 AM

so far I love this saw. the out feed table is too small. I replaced the top with larger top using the same steel lags and frame.
this is a very nice saw meet the expectations for a shop this size.

Another good tool 01/01/2020 2:04:00 PM

Just uncrated the saw and set it up. This tool is heavy duty and worth the cost. I have had a Grizzly 10 Left tilt saw for 16 years (which was still
working great) and needed to upgrade for my business needs. The tool came packaged well and the instructions were pretty good. There were a few
places where they could have been clearer but I figured it out. The blade provided is mediocre and will be replaced with a high quality blade shortly.
The extension tables are solid and easy to assemble. You can feel the stability and that is what I wanted. The digital read out is a very nice feature.
The hand wheels work very smoothly for such a large internal assembly. Easier than my 10".

I own many different pieces of Grizzly equipment and have used them for years. I have been a custom carpentry contractor for 24 years and have been very satisfied. The 15" planer, 12" jointer, 19" bandsaw, spindle sander, drill press, lathe--all have been serving my business and customers well.

Would recommend this saw to any wood worker. Just make sure you need what this saw provides. If you work with small pieces and make bird houses--this is way too much saw. A smaller saw will serve your needs. If you have to cut 3/4" sheet goods, thick maple, oak, make mantles, beams, etc., then you will be glad to have the heft of the 5hp motor (my previous 3hp barely kept up). I just ran almost 4000 LF of poplar with dadoes and wish I had this beast to run it. Looking forward to years of good service from this piece.

What a fantastic saw 05/29/2019 12:31:22 PM

A real game changer in my shop. I have depended on the extreme duty series and this saw has not let me down. It powers through by thickest hardwood with precision. It sure makes me look good. It is keeping the tuned adjustments that I made really well. So far so good.

Dust collection is great under the cabinet. I get a lot of dust on top.

Great Saw Pull the Trigger before prices go up 07/23/2018 3:44:22 PM

I have used other 12 and 14 inch saws in the past but in large commercial shop areas. In my little 1500 sq ft wood shop this thing is a BEAST. Its Awesome for large slabs as I use it for. Buy a Better Miter Guage and don't forget the base to move it with. This will take care of anything you wish to do for the rest of your life. You can't beat the price, extra HP with saw cut ability a 12 inch saw give you. Only thing I didn't care for is the non-laminated MDF table tops but that was taken care of when it arrived home in my shop the first day.

Great saw 04/05/2018 11:26:58 PM

This saw is powerful and its been a great addition to my shop. If you are looking to buy this saw you will not regret it. You want find a saw that cuts smoother.

This saw is a dream to operate. I am very pleased that my other saw I purchased burned up on me within the first two weeks after my purchasing it. That issue made me step up to the big dog. I absolutely love this machine and its performance. Thank you Grizzly for offering the average consumer top notch equipment.

Wow....what a step up! 08/28/2017 12:36:00 AM

Every once in a while I get it right. This purchase was the best move I have made since I began woodworking. I have a small business on the side and this saw was the perfect match for my requirements. Powerful, quiet and smooth controls are a welcome change to my previous saw. My wish list is now full of wanted tools!!

What a beautiful machine! It cuts so smooth that I have a hard time telling if I already ran it through the jointer!

12'' Extreme Table Saw 10/06/2016 9:15:06 PM

I had an older model of this saw and has been a work horse and this one is even better with added items. One thing I don't like is the out feed table is worthless for panel cutting its way too small and wont support wide panels when ripping. I would rather pay less for it and put the money into a proper sized bench to catch the work pieces. Over all its a great saw.

Q & A

Common Questions and Answers about the G0605X1:

Q: What is the difference between G0605X1 and G0606X1?

A:The G0605X1 has a 5 HP motor and is wired for a single-phase, 220V, 30A power supply circuit. The G0606X1 has a 7.5 HP motor and is prewired for a 3-phase, 220V, 30A power supply circuit, and can also be rewired for use on a 440V, 15A power supply circuit. Aside from these differences, the two models are identical.

Q: What is the difference between G0651-52 and G0605X1-06X1?

A:These four machines have the same overall design, but the G0651 and G0652 are designed for a 10" blade and the G0605X1 and G0606X are designed for a 12" blade. The 12" models have a bigger cabinet, cast-iron table, arbors, trunnions, and other internal components, giving them a slightly larger overall size. With the addition of the larger blade, the 12" saws have the ability to cut workpieces up to 4" thick--whereas the 10" models have a maximum cutting depth of 3-3/16". The fence rails, fence, and extension tables are the same size on all four models, giving the 10" saws the same maximum rip capacity (to the right of the blade) as the 12" saws. That said, the larger castings, arbor spindle, motor size, and cutting depth of the 12" saws make them a better choice in an industrial setting, because the added heft and power allow them to better withstand the rigors that a busy production shop can demand day-in and day-out.

Q: Aside from the extension tables and longer fence rails, are there any other differences between the G0605X1/G0606X1 and the G0696X/G0697X 12" table saws?

A:No, if you take away the extension tables and fence rails, these saws are identical.

FAQ

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.
