Grizzly G0856 8" x 72" Jointer with Helical Cutterhead

Ready to step up from your bench top model?

Step up from any 6" model you might be considering to this larger capacity helical cutterhead 8" jointer. The G0856 comes equipped with a 4-row helical cutterhead with 36 indexable carbide inserts that can each be rotated three times to expose a new, sharp edge. This is like getting three knife changes with each set of inserts—which also don't require the finicky adjustment and setup that knives do. You'll save valuable time and money right off the bat.

The extra-long, 72" cast-iron bed with rabbeting table slides on dovetail ways. Setting cut depth is a breeze for traditional jointing or rabbeting with the infeed and outfeed handwheels.

Like all Grizzly jointers, the G0856 comes with a 1-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)

The G0856 manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information.

The Grizzly Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based. Parts and accessories for the jointer are available on-line and shipped from the Grizzly parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.

Love it! 09/07/2020 12:44:31 AM

Got this about 2 weeks ago. Really easy to put together, although it's really heavy. (I made good use of my chain hoist and slings). Easy to set up too, and has lots of power. It even has the correct plug-in for 20 amp, 240 volt outlet. Really like it.

If youre lookin to jump up from your bench top model.. 04/29/2020 3:24:36 PM

Then this is the jointer you must go with! After countless hours of online research and taking amongst the local Woodworking community, this jointer was the way to go for me. Plenty of power, easy to set up. Although dust collection can be a bit better, this machine is an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

LOVE IT! 04/05/2020 2:29:10 PM

I bought mine 9 years ago and I love it. I haven't had any problems with it. I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's one of my prized tools.

Nice machine 02/12/2020 3:43:15 PM

This jointer is great. Easy to set/ adjust. Cuts are smooth. Only negative is that the helical head is not a full 8" it's more like 7.5"

Excellent! 11/30/2019 3:24:08 PM

I was using a bench top 6" jointer with straight blades. It did OK for what it is, but the G0856 with the helical head is the cat's meow. Once dialed in everything that comes out of it is perfectly flat and square and nice and smooth. The motor has plenty of power for anything thrown at it.

Heavy duty and performs flawlessly 09/05/2019 2:22:10 PM

This is one heavy duty beast, with precision machining. The helical cutter head leaves a surface that virtually needs no sanding.
