I ordered several large machines from grizzly and this one was the only delivery that arrived with damage. Though this is mostly UPSs fault it was obvious that the most damaged package was under packed or under protected by grizzly. I will say that grizzly acted swiftly to send repair parts, which I appreciated! This is a new model, there are some issues with not enough information and lack of clarity in the manual which left me guessing. A higher quality print would have helped. Viewing the pdf online solved a few clarity issues. The assembly hardware did not coordinate with the instructions, although in the end I got it together. This will require two strong people to lift the motor housing. NOT a one man job! The biggest problem is at the collection bin which did not come pre drilled for the clasps that fix it to the lifting lid. I had to attach them myself which yielded an imperfect connection. The bin is also warped out of shape which causes the clasping step to be very difficult and compromises the vacuum seal. The bin also does not align centered under the lid, making it frustrating to clasp and lift in a quick way. Lots of maneuvering necessary to get the bit aligned, clasped, and lifted with a good seal.
A quick note that this machine tripped my 20amp breaker every time at start up. My solution was to run a designated 30amp which has solved the problem so far.
I will say that this is a very powerful collector. Ive started to run my ducting and I can tell it will work very well. Ive run 8 metal duct right out of the machine, stepping down to 4 & a blast gate at each machine. Its loud! But thats normal... some ear protection solves that problem. Overall Im happy with this purchase and if the bin issue continues Ill be giving grizzly a call to see how to remedy the problem. Overall Grizzly has maintained great costumer service through a complicataed (by me) ordering process. Hope this review helps! Only lost a star for unclear assembly, and some operational issues upfront.
