It's only been running for a week but does the job well. A good little bandsaw!!
I have always wanted a good/great quality bandsaw for my hobbies, work, etc. I can tell people now that I have finally found a great product and one with a great price. I really like the quality of product: heavy made and precision quality. I would recommend the Grizzly to anybody needing a quality made piece of machinery. With a little setup time and you are in business and ready to produce accurate work. Thanks Team Grizzly and hope to do business in the future.
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.
Disappointed with fence. Dont like the way it sort of locks in place.
Very happy with the saw cuts hickory straight n true .can get rips of very thin hickory veneer. The blade isn't the best seems a little dull but not bad.getta good blade that rips clean n smooth. Be awesome
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.
It is a great saw. I dont have but one problem with it. The fence will not lock down at the same measurements. I have to measure both ends to make sure I am cutting a straight cut
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.
Saw works as expected. Was a little disappointed when some days later the anniversary edition dropped $100. I surely would have ordered that one: That's life. Grizzly products have worked well for me. Will continue to buy and use them.
Extremely well designed, manufactured, and documented. Great value, very glad I bought it.
I have owned a Rockwell then its followup for years. The Grizzly far out performs all previous high end band saws. I am extremely please with every facet of it. I set it up using the you-tube suggestions from the roller guide company. I love it !
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".
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.
I like the saw. It was well packaged and easy to assemble. Good documentation. I would suggest that a buyer purchase some additional blades in different widths. The blade that comes with it is probably better for re sawing wood. I have no used it very much and will have a better idea of how it works after a few months.
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.
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.
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.
this is the first band saw I have ever had so far it has been wonderful its quiet and runs well
I did have to adjust the belt on the motor as it was to loose I also installed a better blade the one they give you is crap
I gave it four stars because of the way it came the boxes were really bashed up thank god it was packed in very thick
Styrofoam so it was undamaged you need to do a better job at shipping.
Absolutely. The saw and base are great. The assembly instructions were clear and easy to follow. I would recommend this saw for anyone needing a good reliable 14" band saw.
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.
+ 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.
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.
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'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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
I purchased the saw a few months ago and finaly put it together and was pleased on how easy it was. the thing is so well built it exceeded my weight restriction so I had my grandson to lift it.
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.
I bought this with the extension block. This is a solid built unit and is very durable. All the controls are easy to access. the only problem with the design is the lower door does not open enough to remove the saw blade with the fence rail attached. I removed the rail since i change blades more than I resaw.
Got the bandsaw and the first day we made over 500 wooden toy blocks with it!
Excellent addition to my small shop. The shipping company had some issues in communication.
I'm glad I have this saw, wish I had it before .
This is the first bandsaw I've ever owned. I'm very pleased with it. It is very quiet and operates well, having no issues cutting right through anything I have fed it yet. The fence needed a little adjustment to be parallel to the blade, but you can't really expect everything to be perfect out of the box. I have not hooked dust collection up to it yet, so I can't speak on that aspect of it's performance.
I bought this a month ago and I feel good about it. The machine itself has sturdy features and enough power to cut through the aluminum I use it for. The only thing I can say bad about it is the fact there is no brake on the wheel or motor when you power off machine. Blade stays circulating for long time. Very quiet.
No feedback given
Purchased this saw in January 2018. Units construction is very well built except for both lower and upper blade doors. only held by one clamp type hinge allowing some rattling of doors. The dust collection system works poorly, better location of vacuum attachment.
Excellent product. Arrived in good shape
, runs smooth and works good. virtually little set up needed . good saw
I ordered this bandsaw on the 28th of December 2017, I got it today the 3rd of January 2018. I assembled it as soon as it got off the truck. Assembly was very easy. Went together well. I put it to work tonight. I put a 1/8th blade on and cut 2"thick maple. Cutting was smooth and effortless. I am very pleased with this saw. Makes me want to sell my older 20" bandsaw and buy another 20"..
I do woodworking as a hobby, so for each tool I buy, I need to make sure I am getting the most capability, quality, and value for my money. I am an Engineer for my day job, so I am heavily inclined to research the details of equipment I intend to purchase. I did a good bit of research on band saws by brand, size, features and options. There are a lot of great saws out there, and some not so great. I am happy to say, the Grizzly Band Saw G0555LX was the best possible choice for the money. The blend of features, specifications, the solid construction, the adjustability, EVERYTHING pointed to this saw being a great quality purchase. And now that I have had it for a few weeks, and used it several times, I am very pleased with this band saw. If you want to spend more money for a comparable band saw from another brand, go ahead. Every tool maker out there will gladly take your money. But what will you get in return? For me, I work hard for my money and I want capable tools that demonstrate quality and value, both in workmanship and performance. And I believe I have found it all with this Grizzly band saw. For my future tool needs, I'll be looking to Grizzly first, and I doubt I'll have to look any further.
I bought this bandsaw a month ago and when I unboxed it the blade tensioner was damaged, I called them sent them pictures and within a few days I had a new part. Set up was easy and machine is running smooth and true. As far as the broken part the experience was wonderful.
I received this item and the box was a bit dinged up but due to the good packaging on the inside, ie. foam and other packing materials, the item was completely undamaged. Assembly of the unit was pretty straight forward with not real catches that I ran into. I do highly suggest getting some help or using mechanical assistance to get the saw itself lifted up onto the stand. Unit was well calibrated out of the box and required only a minor adjustment of the guide wheels. All the cuts I have performed at this time have been square and I have had very little to no blade drift at all.
Overall I am very please with this purchase.
I bought the 14" bandsaw about a month ago. It took a few hours to setup and it runs great. I use my saw primarily for resaw work and it does the job. The only complaint I have is with shipping, the saw left the grizzly warehouse as scheduled and a day or two later I got a call from ups to setup delivery. Ups gave me a time window and a day and I confirmed liftgate service that I payed extra for. They missed the time by hours and the driver wouldn't come down my street after dark. The dispatcher ask me to meet him at a nearby school to pick up the saw, so much for liftgate service.
WOW!!! This thing is great!!! There was a bit of confusion with the order but Grizzly really made it great!
Saw set up with almost no modifications right out of the box. Love the cast iron wheels. Just had to do a few modifications; First I had to use a die grinder to the id of the hole for the throat plate so I could use the delta zero clearance inserts (5x for $10). Then I added two layers of blue painters tape to get the insert flush with the table. The stock plate was not flush either. Second, I added a wheel brush to keep the wheel clean and free of dust. Next I will be adding the urethane band saw tires. I have owned a Jet, Delta, and a Powermatic band saw and I would take this one over them hands down. I also had to do them mods to the other band saws I have owned. Don't hesitate to get this saw, you will NOT be disappointed.
For the average wood worker this is a great saw.
Easy to assemble following the well illustrated instructions.
Well engineered with good machine tolerances.
Factory preassembly of major components was well done, requiring very little preliminary adjustments.
Finished final assembly and made the first cut today. I like the results and this is before final tuning. Thanks for a fine product.
Turns out my G0555LX banndsaw was my second choice. I waited too long before submitting my original order for the Aniversary edition bandsaw. Turns out this second choice was serendipity at its best. I love this machine! So smooth, so quiet, so solid! Don't hesitate! Buy!
I needed to resaw Spanish Cedar for my Humidor business. Checked used and less expensive bandsaws from box stores and kept thinking "why am I going cheap on something this important to my business?" (I had been making humidors for 6 years but bought sliced cedar from someone else who decided to go out of business). I am so glad I got this saw, it is absolutely everything it says it is. Worth every cent! I bought the lift block kit also and after buying another resaw fence, I learned the hard way not to be cheap! Returned it and bought the Grizzly resaw fence and now I am slicing 5/16" Spanish cedar like slicing bread!
My wife purchased this bandsaw for me for Christmas. There were some delivery glitches which Grizzly promptly and efficiently resolved, The product itself appears to be well made. The packaging was great and setup went smoothly (take Grizzly's advice though and make sure you have a helper) I tested the saw but my son was the first one to use it on a project and he was very pleased with the results
I bought this as a Christmas gift for myself and it has been wonderful so far I was worried it might not have enough power but Ive been cutting up 12 round and 6 high bowl blanks all week with no issues I also bought the riser block and that is a game changer
Easy assembly and very easy to use. Happy with my purchase.
Our park wood shop purchased this saw as a replacement for an older Craftsman saw. Once we got it put together and set up it is a very good saw.
As I was the "lead assembler", I do have one complaint. The fasteners for the base were a combination of SAE, Metric, and type some type of "almost" both, but actually neither. This lead to a very long FRUSTRATING assembly.
Make all these fasteners either one standard or the other, but definately get rid of the crappy fasteners!.
This is the main reason I gave the saw a lower rating.
Also, there were two different size allen wrenches required for set up, bot only one was included in the package.
Love the bandsaw. Was pretty straight forward in assembly. I attached a mobile base to it during set up which I like. Has done everything I've needed so far. Made a cool bandsaw box the other day - went well. Only negative was the shipping. It took a long time to get here - the estimated time of delivery was off over a week.
I received the bandsaw and a 6" riser kit about 6 months ago. Assembly was pretty straight forward, even managed to install the riser by myself...took a little balancing and preparation, but I managed. Setting everything up and dialing it in took the longest, but this is the first bandsaw I've ever owned and hadn't used one since HS (31 yrs ago). I would strongly suggest watching Alex Snodgrass's YouTube video for a proper set-up and adjustments....the manual and his suggestions somewhat vary in a few areas, but after setting mine up using his technique, I am very pleased with the performance of the bandsaw. I haven't tried resawing anything yet, but plan to in the near future. Overall, I feel this is the best bang for your buck--hands down !!!!!
It took a while to get there was a back order but was worth the wait very easy to put together and runs great.
As a hobbyist, this saw is perfect. The unit is a solid piece of machinery - very few plastic or weak parts. Very smooth and quiet operation. It is more than enough for my needs and I'm very happy with the purchase. I would recommend this unit to any serious hobbyist who is looking for a solid bandsaw for their shop.
I received my G0555LX 14 " bandsaw a few weeks ago and I am very pleased with the quality, operation and the design of the machine. I ordered this machine the middle of June and it was backordered because of the sale that was on. I received it the first week in October. I was very anxious to get the saw but was going to wait for what ever time it took to get it. I have 3 other Grizzly machines, 20" planer, 8" jointer and a 10" 3 HP table saw that I am pleased with. Thank you for building good quality machines. Jerry Cardwell
Just received the bandsaw. Great heavy machine can't wait to use it.
My son loves this Bandsaw!! He has expressed many times over what an amazing machine this is!
Thank you Grizzly for making such great quality machinery.
Very pleased One weld on a foot broke so I remover all of the adjustable legs as I put the saw on a mobile base. You don't need to pay for lift gate service. 2 people can easily slide the saw of the truck. I should be getting a refund on this fee, as the delivery truck didn't have a lift gate. Overall, I would recommend this saw and I will shop Grizzly in the future.
the best move I have made in a long time.very pleased with my new14" G0555LX deluxe bandsaw.would like to say thanks for fast an promt delivery.
I bought this a while ago. Easy to set and tune. Instructions were good. Delivery was a little disappointing. Had to pay $35 just have them lower it to the road with their lift gate, then had to dolly it 180 ft up my driveway. Still it was a good investment and I enjoy using it.
i have bought other machines from GRIZZLY and this saw has the same quality as the others . great saw ! for a price you cant beat.
Looked at many options and almost went for a cheaper bandsaw. Actually my co-worker purchased a 1/2 hp Wen and immediately regretted it after using my Grizzly.
Good power, heavy duty, easy blade change are 3 reason I would recommend this bandsaw to anyone.
I do not have dust collection outside of a shop vac so I had to rig a reducing coupler on the back but that was cheap enough.
Overall great machine. Next on my list spindle and disc sander.
I am very glad that I bought this product I'm constantly finding new and useful ways to use it.. I had no problems setting up awesome quality
I bought this bandsaw about 2 months ago with the Shop Fox mobile base and the 6 inch riser block. It took about 3 hours to assemble and tune the saw, and only 20 minutes of that was for adjustments! I think that because I installed the riser block the blade adjustments needed extra attention. I have resawed, sawed some apple wood into boards, and made a bunch of bandsaw boxes,and I am very pleased with the performance of this bandsaw.
I was somewhat apprehensive about replacing my 12" Jet bandsaw with this saw, but I've had the 14" Grizzly Deluxe Bandsaw for a few months now and could not be more pleased with it. I'm impressed with how solid it is, the smooth finish on the table, and the value represented by the inclusion of a high quality rip fence, miter gauge, and roller guides. The only addition that would make it better is a tire brush. I've added one from Carter and it works well. Thank you for the great addition to my shop.
very satisfied with the machine.It is a huge improvement over what i had.I only wish i got the GO555X instead but im perfectly satisfied with the GL555XL Looking foward to my next grizzly machine
I have had this saw for 3 months or so, and am still learning the ins and outs as it is the first bandsaw that I have ever owned. Seems to have plenty of power and does what I have asked it to do.
My only complaint so far is that the housing for the lower right guide bearing cracked in the first 2 days - effectively making that particular bearing useless. If the blade contacts that bearing, it falls off. Because of this issue, I have been a bit hesitant to really dive in and work on my bandsaw skills.
I have no doubt that as a newbie to bandsaws I did something to cause the failure (at least partially), but it was shocking that it broke so easily and early in the life of the saw.
I was so excited about ordering this saw as it was my first tool purchase that came from somewhere other than Lowe's or Home Depot, and I was envisioning a garage full of Grizzly tools. I must admit that I am now hesitant to pull the trigger on what was going to be a major upgrade to my tablesaw.
Indispensable for me! It's a great size; big enough for re-sawing yet small enough for curve cuts. One of my favorite things I ever bought. Worth every penny and then some.
It's outstanding. Well made... heavy... just a great saw. You won't hear any complaints from me:) if you're on the fence about this one pull the trigger :) A+
Ao far i am very happy. This saw seems accurate and fairly quiet. The table is solid and no vibration. All i did was to verify squareness and tweek the tracking and guide bearings. Cuts 4" thick cherry no problem at all
I purchased this bandsaw in the spring. It's one of the BEST TOOLS I HAVE EVER PURCHASED.
GRIZZLY TOOLS ARE GREAT.
I bought this bandsaw in January 2017 and am very pleased with it. I bought the riser block as well. Installation was a breeze. I do recommend having a helper when installing the riser block. After installing the riser block I was prepared to have to shim it to align the saw, nope. Did not have to shim it at all. I followed all the instructions and watched all the videos provided by Grizzly on the setup of this saw. I have now ran full cuts through the saw and am still very happy with this purchase.
On a side note, I have dealt with Grizzly's customer service a couple times now, asking information about different products. It is hands down the easiest and best customer service department I have ever dealt with. Thank you Grizzly.
For the price it is a excellent Bandsaw. I have used it several times and have no regrets on my purchase.
Awesome bandsaw, smooth clean cuts, virtually no vibration, dust collections work pretty darn good, If you haven't noticed, I am a happy camper.
What a great saw.....package arrived intact .....saw was aligned properly....works like a charm.... Glad I bought this from Grizzly!!!

I bought this saw a few weeks ago and was extremely impressed at the fit and finish of the machine. shipping was fast and easy and it arrived without any damage. If you are looking for a new band saw I would take a solid look at this one.
I have only been using the G0555LX for about 3 weeks now, but after using an old Delta 3 wheel band saw with "shade tree engineered" guides I can only say WOW! Setting up the machine was amazingly simple and straightforward.
I actually purchased this machine because of the guides. I checked out a couple of other saws at local retailers, but after watching the Grizzly set-up videos it was pretty much settled.
Using the included blade I have been able to cut down a 5 inch slab into 3/16 veneers (Padauk), just a couple passes through a drum sander to remove the blade marks.
I will be getting the riser block kit as soon as possible to expand the saws capabilities to 12 inches.
