The lathe arrived quickly and in good condition.
Why I bought this particular lathe:

This lathe has the following features that make it a really attractive product. Although the South Bend Heavy 13 lathe does; no other Grizzly lathe of this size or smaller has those features.
It has a pull-out chip tray
It has a chuck with replaceable jaws
It has T-slots in the carriage for mounting other accessories
It has a brake
It has a direction-reversing gear change push/pull-knob on the apron for changing while the apron is traversing at low speed
It includes a worklight (although I wish it had an LED bulb that doesn’t get so hot)
It includes a micrometer stop
It includes a stop collar
It includes a coolant system

Things not included that I wish it had:
Option to buy with single-phase motor (even if only single speed) I had to buy a phase-converter to make it function on my single-phase power supplies.
Live center. (it comes with 2 dead centers, but no live center)
Quick Change Toolpost (The 4-way toolpost is extremely inconvenient for non-production work)

If anyone asks again, this size and weight lathe shipment can easily be delivered to residential areas on the UPS bobtail with a lift gate. I almost didn’t buy because of the initial CSR report that it couldn’t be delivered on a lift-gate. But I visited UPS and they said that it could. No problems. But, UPS will not deliver to a rear entry if they have to go down an alley. (or at least that’s the local policy).
A 2-ton Shop Crane will easily lift the lathe off the shipping pallet and can be moved by 2 people into position on a concrete floor despite the heavy weight.
Shipping was super quick. It missed the truck in Kansas City, but still made it to my home in 3 days. I was expecting maybe 10 days.

Everything isn’t totally rosy, though:
The included toolkit has a set of Allen wrenches that are apparently not hardened. They wouldn’t even back out any fasteners, including the power ground screw. All that were tried rounded off the tool hex and/or twisted the wrench. This was simply loosening, not tightening. The included Allen set is really quite worthless.

The brake switch was physically broken; discovered while following the installation instructions and setting up the lathe. I need a new switch, please. Part number: P07401037

A gear-head gear retaining washer and its fastener had fallen off the shaft and were lying at the bottom of the gear-head case in the oil. I discovered it when the lathe would not switch from High Speed gears to Low Speed gears. Finally I took the top off and peered down into the works and saw the washer on the bottom of the case. Later, found the allen bolt that attaches the washer to the shaft. I had to pull the gear shifting mechanism out of the head in order to fish the loose parts out and then install properly (this time with a lock washer). I think I did that OK, but it took over an hour.

Grizzly's great Customer Service is replacing the parts, etc. quickly.
