Fantastic bandsaw for the price 09/09/2019 12:12:46 AM

Minimal adjustment out of the box and it was ready to go. Good solid parts, dual speed is nice. Saw has shredded everything I have throw at it with ease. If I had to be picky, the fence could be better.

This tool seems to to be fine, but the user manual and the instruction videos, are totally inadequate on making adjustment on blade tensioning if you have added the riser block , or installed a different blade. I have spent at least 3 hours and several phone calls to technical support on this topic, before making this saw work properly.

Well made, works well. 07/25/2019 3:56:35 PM

Works very well and solidly built. I do have a hint for those who are setting it up without help. Build the base first. Then bolt the base to the saw while the saw is still laying flat in the box (you need to cut away the end of the box. You can then lift the whole thing up together.

A really nice addition to my capabilities 07/06/2019 1:20:16 PM

I used this saw for the first time in construction of a cedar porch swing. It was good. True and accurate cuts, with little waste compared to my table saw. I'm a retired school teacher so money and value is of paramount importance. I've found this band saw exceeds my expectations. I highly recommend it for hobbiests and woodworkers who wish to step up from the low cost brands found at the big box stores. Shipping went very smoothly. Assembly was a little complicated in that I had no help and it is a very heavy and solid machine, which is a plus in use but a minor one time inconvenience in set-up. Go ahead and purchase this one. I am completely satisfieb

Very good quality 07/04/2019 3:57:50 PM

This product is very good quality. It went on sale a few days after I purchased it. I called and was given a refund of the difference in the price. The only problem I have is that Grizzly charges extra for "lift service" on the delivery service. I have never heard of any other company doing this. Customer Service is based in the US and staffed by true Americans. They are very nice and helpful. It is obvious they work for Grizzly and care about the company unlike the customer service of most companies I have contacted.

Great Product 06/20/2019 12:27:44 PM

The band saw is great. Everything i expected. My problem was the shipper. The box arrived looking like it fell out of the truck at freeway speeds. Due to the excellent packaging on Grizzlys behalf, there was only very slight damage and they were very quick to replace the damaged parts. Very pleasant to deal with. When these parts showed up, the box was beat up with holes in it. Parts were ok.

The product was fine, but the shipping was lousy. the item was about 2 weeks late in arriving, and when it did, the box was damaged. So it was returned and a new item ordered. So, about 4 weeks total before receiving the item, and I wanted it for a special occasion much sooner than that. Not your fault, but you need to talk to your shipper about this.

Glad I Chose a Grizzley! - Great Customer Service too. 05/02/2019 8:31:53 PM

I almost bought a less expensive bandsaw and I'm so glad I didn't. The Grizzly is a solid professional machine but not overwhelming. I was also impressed with their customer service. After waiting anxiously for about a week for it to arrive, I was disappointed to find out that it had been badly damaged in shipping so I refused the delivery. Customer service could not have been better. They shipped the replacement the next day and I received it within a few days. No questions asked. Thank you!

I've now had it for several months and can't believe I lived without it for so long. Setting up the blade takes a little practice and there are some good tutorials online. The instruction sheet could definitely be improved but once properly set-up it has worked like a charm.

Highly recommended 04/12/2019 6:26:07 AM

I bought the saw about five weeks ago on sale and just now got around to putting it together. I have to say I am very pleased with the quality of this saw, building furniture as a hobby I have enough knowledge to know a good piece of equipment when I see it. I also purchased the bear crawler with it and I highly recommend that you purchase if you decide on this saw. The saw moves so easily with the crawler and stays in place when you lock it down. The staff I dealt with on the phone when deciding on what saw to purchase where great and knowledgeable about the product. Great job Grizzly, this will not be my last purchase.

Bought in January 2019 and am extremely happy with this machine. Very solid and happy I went with the G0555LX. The cast iron wheels make a difference. I had a Porta Cable 10" and would frequently break blades. I broke one blade with the LX but that was my fault. If I ever have to replace this machine It will be with another 14" or better Grizzly. When I received the LX it only had 2 eccentrics for a 1/8" blade. Called and received the other 2 in short order. One minor thing was the LX did not have a brush to clean off the lower wheel. This was easy to fabricate and install.

Good saw. Some trouble with fence 03/25/2019 3:46:16 PM

Ive had this saw for a few weeks and its a great performer. Set up took a couple of hours but most parts were in alignment and worked well with minimal tuning.
One issue...Ive noticed the fence seems to slip even when locked, resulting in some inaccurate rip cuts.
Curious if others have run into this issue as well

Awesome band saw 02/20/2019 1:35:54 AM

This is the ninth Grizzly wood working machine i have bought, like all the others the set up was very easy, and the instructions are well written, this Band saw runs extremely smooth and quiet, i use it daily and have never had an issue with it, i wish i had bought it years ago,

the nice thing i like about Grizzly machines is i can still buy parts for them years down the road,
i have shown my machines to others and a couple of guys bought from Grizzly them selves.
it is my opinion, this is the only place to look for wood working machinery.

Great Bang for Buck 01/15/2019 3:10:37 AM

I purchased the G0555LX 14" after quite a lot of research. First impression on unpacking the saw was very good quality. I'm actually quite astonished that a company can deliver this much metal: cast Iron, steel and aluminum engineered and machined to very close tolerances at this price break. Let me explain, first off, I am a hobbyist, I build acoustic and electric guitars, I have also built a work bench and various jigs -all in my spare time. So my experience is intermediate. I have been slowly building a shop for myself while using a professional Luthiers shop to build my guitars, After looking at all the top manufacturers it became apparent that Grizzly made more bandsaws among other machine tools than any other company, They also had the most positive and thorough reviews than any other. I narrowed my choice and pulled the trigger. The bandsaw arrived within 5 days as promised, minor damage to the cardboard-the machine very well protected encased in styrofoam. This guy is HEAVY. You need the lift gate service and a strong friend, don't even imagine you can lift the saw onto the stand by yourself. It took me about 8 hours working at a leisurely pace to completely set up the saw including fine tuning the guide bearings, adjusting blade tension, aligning the table, and setting up the fence. Having done all that and using a 3/8" Timberwolf raker blade I'm getting perfectly smooth, square cuts, within .001" in consistency. The fence is incredibly accurate right out of the box, fine tuned I can make cuts within .005" easily just looking at the ruler. That's because of the magnifying glass built right into it. I am a professional photographer and my camera bodies and lenses are top of the line. I easily spent 10 times as much on one camera and lens set up as I did for this bandsaw. That's what I mean by the amount of metal, machining and engineering in a product at this price point. The saw is quiet and smooth, hardly any detectable vibration. I mounted it on a mobile stand taking care to move it. I highly recommend this model over the previous versions G0555 and the G0555EX. Here's why: This one comes with cast iron wheels, a rack and pinion blade guide post, and a T shaped fence which is studier. For me, I did not think I needed the extra horsepower for the wood that I cut.. This will easily handle anything up to 6" thick with the proper blade. I might order the re-saw expansion kit at one point just in case I ever decide I need more capacity. A very inexpensive option. In conclusion: Any machinist or woodworker understands the concept that a machine tool can be "sexy". It has to do with the mass of metal and the capabilities of the tool. This saw has appeal!
PROS: quality materials and build, price point-bang for buck, set up easy following owners manual, Co planar right from factory, very minor adjustments to fine tune, support help in choosing saw was good, iron wheels at this price point, rack and pinion blade guide, super fence very accurate, quiet and smooth running, just the right size for my shop, 110 volts no need to hire electrician.
CONS: Owner's manual is online only. I had to use my iPad during assembly, a little awkward. I finally printed one out, 65 pages. Had it bound at Kinkos $5 Hey Grizzly you might consider including one. 2 man set up, but that I guess would be expected with any saw of this size. I wish I had this years ago.
I would recommend this to a friend.

I would suggest that you tell customers who buy the band saw that to start the machine you need to push the on button quite firmly before it engages. I called to complain I could not get it to turn on. Fortunately, I have a woodworking neighbor who came over and pushed the on button and It started with no problem. Thats when he showed me how I needed to push to the
Point of resistance, then push a bit more firmly. A very simple piece of information.
With limited use so far, I am very pleased with the solid feel of th machine and th smooth, straight cuts.

A winner of a bandsaw!! 12/07/2018 9:50:02 PM

I have recently purchased and set up my bandsaw, but have not had the chance to use it as I am planning on having a master woodworker (expert on bandsaws) help me tune it and get some insights on how to best use it. The saw itself is outstanding in terms of its quality and straightforwardness in putting it together. It definitely helps to have an extra pair of hands to help place the saw on the stand. I can't wait to really get into the nuances of this great tool.

Very Happy Customer 11/30/2018 10:12:03 PM

I've had my new bandsaw for about a month and my work prevents me from using it as much as I would like, but I'm very happy with it so far. Upon delivery, I noticed that the table had been dropped on a sharp edge and it had a crack. I called Grizzly and they were very committed to making it right. They sent me a replacement table immediately. Also, because I've never owned a bandsaw, I had some confusion during the setup. I called and they gave me the very help I needed. I definitely plan to do business with them again.

Nice bandsaw. Ordered it and received it a week later. Received it and had the driver place it on top of my garden wagon, (rated for 1,000 lbs). Had to pay the extra money to have it taken off the semi. Two boxes - one smaller and lighter. The big box weighed about 200 lbs. Put it together quickly and had my wife and daughter-in-law help lift it on the stand. Put casters on the bottom holes of the stand. Works well, I am satisfied so far. Nice looking saw.

Bought this a few weeks ago and have been using it regularly. Absolutely no issues or complaints. I think the directions could be slightly more thorough, in that they left out a couple steps, but since I have half a brain I figured it out. I'm new at using a bandsaw so wasn't familiar with releasing the tension on the blade when not in use. Discovered that from another publication -- nothing in the Grizzly manual about that. I'm not particularly impressed with how sharp the blade is (don't think it's me) as it really struggles to cut anything thicker than 3".

Anonymous Reviewer
First Grizzly product. 10/06/2018 4:02:27 PM

Impressed so far for its price point. I made a video review (and some helpful assembly tips) but the file size is too big for this website space. Email me and I will send to you: jkwright 60 AT GeeMale. I ordered the T28000 rolling stand and found I had to hacksaw off 3 inches on each of the width square tubes to that the wheeled cart fit snugly to the bandsaw base. Otherwise, with all that extra "slop" the say might have been less stable. No big deal though. The documentation and instructions are excellent, an often overlooked component of machines. I ordered some Timber Wolf blades in place of the standard ones. I lifted the saw itself up onto the base using a comealong attached to the main rafters in my garage workshop. It worked very well in raising the saw up to the base top. The shipping cartoons for both the saw and rolling cart were badly ripped and punctured but neither seem to have been damaged. All parts and components appear to be present. Leveling the table square to the blade was a cinch. Squaring the table slot to the blade did require a bit of adjustment but seems fine. The fence was square to that mitre slot out of the box. Blade tensioning is a simple matter. Adjustment of the bearings was a non event. My test cut against the fences was outstanding . . . smooth edge and straight with no blade wandering. This bandsaw purchase was an addition to the 20-inch European $3,500 bandsay I already own. I will devote mostly to resawing and the bigger stuff. Frankly, I see using this Grizzly bandsaw far more than my big one. One more thing: I suggest using kerosene to clean the cosmoline off the cast iron table. It took me no more than 15 minutes to clean it well followed by a couple coats of Johnson Paste Wax which I have used for more than ten years on my heavy duty large equipment cast iron surfaces.

After a very intuitive setup process, this saw cuts extremely true. Went through some 16/4 ash product wth 4 inch radius curves very accurately, with hardly any cleanup. This will not be the last Grizzly product I own, its opened the door for more, mainly because of the real quality I see.

Best bandsaw I've ever owned. 08/11/2018 5:11:06 PM

I bought the Grizzly G0555LX 14" Bandsaw with the 6" Riser Block. This bandsaw is the quietest, smoothest, bandsaw I've ever used or owned. I've been a Finish Carpenter since 1994 and mainly have worked with Stain Grade materials. I've been a Cabinetmaker since 1998 and the last 15+ years I've mainly concentrated my skills on refurbishing Solid Wood Furniture, and making Custom, (One of a kind), Tables, Beds, and Furniture Pieces of every sort. This bandsaw is a True Game Changer for my shop. My last bandsaw finally died and after buying this Bandsaw from Grizzly, I had no idea what I was missing. Never have I worked on a bandsaw this quiet, and certainly able to resaw Eastern White Oak at 12" wide. I was a bit worried with the 1 horsepower motor not having enough muscle to cut thru the Harder woods I use and with a 1/2" 3TPI Timberwolf blade I purchased, the Bandsaw cuts through my lumber like a hot knife through butter. The feed rate is quick and precise, even resawing to a 1/4", the blade has no drift. I love it. Thank you Grizzly for making such a wonderful product.

Nice affordable saw 08/03/2018 1:56:46 PM

The saw is well built and well worth the price. I think it is a really good looking saw as well. The blade runs true and the roller guides do an excellent job. Plenty of power for 2 inch boards. One issue is the plastic blade protector on the riser. The plastic is flexible and rubs the blade. I note the riser extension has a metal protector which is what works best. I also would like to see a tire brush for the bottom wheel. Maybe as an accessory in the future.

Outstanding Bandsaw for the Money 06/20/2018 5:26:17 PM

I received the G0555LX bandsaw and got it set up about a month ago. The wheels came pretty dead-on parallel and planar to one another, with great out of the box blade tracking. In addition to the expected adjustment and tuning of the cutting guides (which is necessary on ANY saw during setup/blade change), a very minor table adjustment was required to translate/shift the table top about 1/16 of an inch to better align with the center of the table insert (took about 1 minute). All-in-all, a very good value machine for the money, well made and easy to use. I appreciate the detailed instructions with pictures (let's be honest, we all love pictures when we read). The adjustment of the cutting guides was intuitive and easy (unlike some cheaper band saws I have had to set up in the past) and the blade tensioning process was straight forward and fast. The height adjustment of the blade guard feels VERY robust/well made and provides good protection of the cutting blade for small/close work. I was even impressed with the quality of miter gauge included, as I have received cheap feeling/largely plastic miter gauges before (which are essentially worthless). The included fence is pretty good, obviously not a $100+ aftermarket fence (which no one should expect on this level machine), but very solid feeling and easy to install/adjust. My only criticism is that the fence retention mechanism does not slide smoothly along the front aluminum fence mounting rail and gouges a horizontal stripe along the front of the fence mount. After seeing this during my adjustment of the fence after installation, I tried to smooth/relieve the sharp edge of the plate that clamps against the fence mount, but it still gouges the mount if moved to the left. I will pull it off in the future to try to better smooth this side, but it works for now. This is possibly just an unlucky manufacturing defect specific to my fence and is purely cosmetic. Even with this issue, this would NOT stop me from buying another Grizzly product, but it would have been nice to have a properly fitted/finished fence engagement mechanism to prevent damage to the mount.

Pros:
+ Great value/power for the money
+ Solid feeling operation and well made (over looking the minor issue described above with the fence mount)
+ Easy adjustment/maintenance

Cons: (all are minor issues, but included for completeness)
- Would be nice to have a wider table (although this table is just as wide as any other bandsaw I considered in this price range)
- Cosmetic damage to fence mount due to fit/finish issue of the fence retention mechanism (described in detail above, would not prevent me from buying again)
- Can take some time for the blade to stop due to lack of brake, but should be expected for this level of machinery.

Overall Impression: I am very happy I chose this saw. It has worked very well for my needs, is well designed/thought out, and is well made.

Very Nice Saw 06/20/2018 2:16:28 PM

I bought this saw after a lot of research. It had all the features I wanted. It's a good piece of equipment. You'll need to have someone to help you assemble it due to the weight and somewhat cumbersome nature of the pieces. It took me less than an hour and half to assemble and fine tune the adjustments. I've only cut a few test pieces with it, but it performs flawlessly. Shipping was prompt and it was well packaged. All around a good purchase.

Cuts wood like butter. 06/18/2018 4:09:57 AM

While bought for smaller projects (Derby Cars)i have testing it with larger cuts and even with 4X4 can cut very fine layers. Loving it.

I love this bandsaw! 06/17/2018 1:38:10 PM

I've only done a few projects so far but this has proven to be everything I needed for getting into woodworking. I know it's early still but I haven't found anything it hasn't been able to tackle yet!

I bought this recently and it was freight shipped to my house. The driver from the 3rd party freight company dropped it off and bailed before I could get there to receive it (despite discussing a time on the phone with him -- he was literally speeding away from my house as I pulled up), and there was damage to the boxes... but it was packaged well enough that there was no damage. Assembly was fairly easy and really required only very minor tuning to get everything working correctly. I'm a little sad that the vertical cutting height is so short, but the cut width is pretty great. The worktop and a few components had some nasty sticky residue (likely to keep parts from oxidizing) and it won't come off with any solvent I tried, so I've just been hoping it will wear off with use. It is otherwise working fantastic, and I have no buyer's remorse.

Great saw 05/27/2018 3:56:20 AM

Solid construction. Heavy duty saw. When pared with a timberwolf brand blade. Awesome. Take your time setting up and follow all instructions to dial in the saw. When this is done you won't be disappointed. Thanks grizzly. Your loyal customer. Steve L

Just put it together yesterday and I am more than pleased with it. The instructions were great and it took most of a day with interruptions to put it together and get all the setting right. Fired it up and cut some hardwood to test it. No issues and this band saw is just excellent, well built and solid. Everyone that works with wood in some fashion should have one of these at this price.

Great product 05/10/2018 11:40:07 AM

Shipping was handled very well, the UPS driver went beyond just delivering the product, even assisting to move the heavy box from his van into my wood shop. Set up was smooth and everything worked as it should. The band saw purchase begins a complete updating and replacement of my shops power equipment, looking forward to the next Grizzly purchase.

I bought this bandsaw to replace a Craftsman 10" bandsaw that had been damaged. I was satisfied with the Craftsman saw for the limited capability that I needed. The Grizzly G0555LX bandsaw is in another class entirely. It's a seriously capable piece of machinery. I am very pleased with it.

I'm not sure how to enter my opinion on 'overall' and 'recommend' shown above, but I can just go with those.

SO, yes it is a really high quality saw. It has a stronger overall appearance of durability than others. I have not used it more than an hour or so, but it works perfectly. Glad I bought.

Excellent saw, very well made and robust in its construction. It is extremely quiet 05/03/2018 12:21:43 PM

When setting it up and dialing it in, it just seems like everything wanted to fall right into place, I didnt have to fight anything. That was the first indication that this is a quality made piece. Using it so nice it is actually fun to use. I have plans for more Grizzley pieces in my shop

GREAT SAW 04/16/2018 11:26:31 AM

When I went looking for a new bandsaw last year Grizzly was my first choice, but then this year when I decided to buy it you guys hiked the price up one hundred dollors. So I went looking else were for a saw. But really couldn't find one that I like, so ibought the GOO555LX 14" bandsaw. This saw is AMAZING. A few items where missing but I called tech, by the way very nice conversation, and took care of me right away.
Good job Grizzly.

Solid build! 04/04/2018 3:52:49 PM

This bandsaw is an amazing value! Assembly is straight forward. The boxes are heavy. Get the extra delivery service to have it removed from the truck. Assembly is possible for one stubborn guy but better done by two. I cut a 54 circle table top on day one. It was 6/4 old growth Douglas fir. It cut smooth and as fast as Id ever hope for.

Exceeded my expectations in every way especially for a bandsaw in this price range. Powerful, precise and quality details in the design. Worth the investment!

very good bandsaw 03/13/2018 1:43:10 PM

I am very pleased with my band saw. It takes two people to set up, but it was easy to do. The instructions were easy to follow.
