I waited months for this product and it finally arrived in late May. Unfortunately it had a problem.
I went through all of the setup, cleaned all the shipping grease, and fired it up. When I run a board through the left side works great, but on the right side it growls as the board is fed through. Cutting is good on both sides, just a growling/squeaking noise on the right side. I discussed with Grizzly support and they promptly sent out some parts (bearings, bushing blocks, gasket, etc.) to change out to address the noise. I talked to a number of different tech support people and they all provided advice and suggestions. I did a lot of trouble shooting - lower or raising various components to see how it impacted the noise. I ended up tearing the machine apart and replacing one of the cutter head bearings. I was disappointed that it did not fix the problem and was ready to send it back for Grizzly to fix. Their tech support called me one more time and the individual I talked with this time had a better knowledge of the machine and recommended I adjust the pressure bar. That ended up being the problem. I had adjusted them to spec, but by adjusting the noisy side the problem was eliminated!
The machine is solid and cuts nicely. It is much quieter than my old 15 inch planner with straight knives and the cut is better. I would recommend the machine, but know that if there is an issue it may take some time to resolve as you will have to do the work unless you want to send it back. This is my second machine from Grizzly and the first, a 12 inch jointer has performed great with no issues.
