G0803Z 9" Benchtop Bandsaw with Laser Guide

Superior cutting performance and portability with enough power to not bog down even on hardwoods.

The Grizzly G0803 that was awarded as Top Value by Wood Magazine for its combination of features including an efficient 1/3 HP motor, heavy-duty feel and portability has been upgraded with a new laser guidance system and adjustable blower to provide superior cutting visibility.

The G0803Z 9" Benchtop Bandsaw with Laser Guide features a 62-inch blade and accepts blades from 1/8" to 3/8" wide. It can cut pieces up to 3-1/2" high and has enough power to cut through green woods and other dense materials.

The rack-and-pinion table tilt system makes it easy to cut beveled edges. The blade guard is also rack-and-pinion making adjustment an easy one-handed operation.

The quality design and construction of the G0803Z assures easy, accurate cuts including fine detailed cuts without the vibration found in other benchtop models.

Blade tension and tracking adjustments are simple as turning the respective blade adjustment knob.

The small footprint and top handle make moving the bandsaw around your workspace easier. The saw weighs less than 50 lbs. so you can also effortlessly move it between your home, shop or job site.

Because of the compact size, the bandsaw will arrive about 80% assembled. It will include a comprehensive operation manual written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department making set up a breeze.

Like all Grizzly drill bandsaws, the G0803Z 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 Grizzly Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based. Parts and accessories for the bandsaw are available on-line and shipped from the Grizzly parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.

excellent bandsaw 07/25/2020 4:09:14 PM

I had a Skill 9" bandsaw and it gave out, I wanted a 14" but didn't have the room so I bought the Grizzly 9". I am so glad I got this tool, the skill was a toy, This is a real saw! Only limited by it's size, not by it's power.

This is my first stationary woodworking power tool, and I'm very pleased with it. I bought it because I was finding that there were small cuts I couldn't accurately make with my jigsaw or circular saw. The sale on Father's Day sealed the deal. It's accurate and easy to set up. I don't have a lot of floor space in my shop (well, garage) so it's light weight and small foot print works well for me. Fence is accurate with some tweaking. A great purchase, I'll buy grizzly again!

Well worth the money 07/02/2020 3:27:02 PM

There are times when only a bandsaw can do the job right.
I am retired and live on a fixed income so I am careful about selecting equipment for my woodworking shop. The quality and accuracy of this benchtop bandsaw were evident from the first time I put it to use duplicating new chair arms for a restoration project.
Set-up instructions are very good but I would have liked a less subjective way of setting the blade tension.

Nice small shop bandsaw 06/03/2020 11:47:51 PM

So far I am happy with the bandsaw. It runs smoothly, relatively quiet and is ideal for a small woodwork shop. I was surprised to see that it does not use tires, rather metal blade on metal wheels. That doesn't appear to be a problem though - works just as well as wheels with tires. What is disappointing though is the miter gauge and fence. Both would be at home on a cheap toy bandsaw; they are practically useless. The fence does not clamp down properly and the miter gauge flops around on the table. I would have gladly paid a bit extra for a quality fence. I'm sure there are after market miter gauges but I'm not sure about the fence.
In spite of the lack of quality fittings, the bandsaw itself is great. I use it free hand for now.

There is nothing like a Grizzly! 05/30/2020 4:24:35 PM

I bought this band saw after shopping all over the internet for the best value for my money. I finally decided on the Grizzly. What a fantastic value! There are so many features compared to other saws on the market and it is built so much better than other brands. There is really nothing that compares to the Grizzly. I have owned several Grizzly tools over the years and I have never ever regretted buying one. I cannot say the same about several other Brands I bought thinking I was saving money.

Fun little saw 05/28/2020 2:24:57 PM

This saw is a single speed bench top band saw that was perfect for my needs. It handles small jobs very well. Make no mistake however it is not a large project saw - it will not re-saw a 2x4 But is very good at small jobs. For example I needed to repair a wooden waterski that a dog had chewed up and it made precise cuts on the piece of hardwood that I needed to mend the ski. The laser guide is very helpful.

I purchased this benchtop bandsaw to replace my plastic case saw that could no longer cut a straight line even in thin material. I am happy with this saw as it cuts through 3 1/2" wood and cut to a line and not waver. It has ample power. If you are familiar with band saws, the instruction are easy to follow.

Very glad I bought this saw. 05/23/2020 12:56:13 PM

I've had it about a month or so and have used it a few times. I originally bought it because a project I was working on required me to cut curves. Since I had been contemplating a band saw, I took advantage of the latest sale offer and took the plunge. It was easy to set up and it cuts nicely. I was surprised by how easily it cut thick wood. I also bought a small table to place it on and they look like they were meant to be used together. I would recommend that you buy the table to go with the saw. Great purchase. Couldn't be happier.

Good apron 05/23/2020 11:38:33 AM

I bought this as an add on to a band saw that I bought. Figured I could use another apron. I'm 6'5" and 320lbs and just a little belly. Didn't even come close to fitting! It is well made and a good material for the price so I kept it and now my kids use it now.
Again, it's good, I'm just abnormally large compared to normal people

Not bad for the money. 05/09/2020 11:24:02 AM

Well built machine for the most part, the table could be bit heavier! I bought it to rough out blocks for wood carvings. It works well for smaller projects but you are Limited to 3 1/2 inche thick stock on your height and 9 inches on your width .That is the only downfall of this machine. In saying that I I am very impressed with the overall performance. I have used it to rip stock at its maximum settings and it got the job done. It was my own fault for buying too small of a machine but was under the impression that it had 9 inches of clearance height wise not width wise. For a smaller to mid sized wood though it is a great little machine!

Band saw has performed well so far - this is not my first band saw. The setup was very good with little trouble. The laser guide is OK, but my preference is to follow my own line - perhaps it is just something to get used to. The fence sometimes can be tricky to adjust as it does not slide easily. I am still rating as a five-star because overall I am very happy with the saw.

I purchased this for my small basement workshop. After comparing it with others I found that I made the right choice. The all metal enclosures, sturdy construction and feature set were well worth the smaller extra cost over "bargain" bench top bandsaws.

I bought this a month ago because it had a great price.
I have not had as chance to open the box as I tore the menciscus in my left leg and can't walk on it.
So I have been on a grizzly buying spree with numerous boxes yet to be opened. Can't wait for this lef to mend so I can finish setting up my garage work shop.

I bought one of these back in 03/19. I had a Delta 3/4 HP 14" bandsaw. I have no complaints with the Delta. Good saw. But . . . I really needed the floor space in my very small basement! This unit was on sale and I do trust Grizzly as I have been buying from them for years. All the other brands of benchtop bandsaws had way too much plastic for me! This is a nice little unit! It has more power than I thought it would too. I've been a woodworker all of my life and I know what works and I know what doesn't.
It sliced right through 1" red oak! I was surprised! Just keep a sharp blade on it and don't try to make it do more than is supposed to.

Always check your boxes 09/29/2019 5:07:48 AM

I purchased this about a month and a half ago and was still getting my shop up and running but it was on sale so I decided to go for it. It sat in the box for a while and when I opened it, the base was super warped and didnt sit flush on the table. I called grizzly and because I was out of the 30 day window of returns they said I was out of luck. However they were nice enough to go ahead and take it back to be fixed or replaced. So Im giving their customer service department the 5 stars and the machine itself a 1 star rating! Awesome customer service!!

I have had it for one month now and am very satisfied with it.
Sure, it is just a bench top unit and will not cut the big stuff but that is not what I bought it for-
Assembly was a breeze, the manual could use a bit of an update with better pictures or drawings but it was nothing to figure out the correct assembly and set up.
Cuts are straight and true,
I could not be happier and would buy it again in a heartbeat.

Excellent value 09/27/2019 9:59:17 PM

I was trying to find the best small-shop band saw and I believe that I did. I searched far and wide, read reviews, asked friends, family, and neighbors about their saws and it came down to overall brand satisfaction. And so far, I have been thoroughly satisfied!
It started before I ever got the first bit of sawdust on the blade. My saw was damaged in shipping and when I contacted customer support, I sent some pictures and they sent me a replacement BEFORE I shipped the first one back to them. Their team was On point!
Now that Ive got it all hooked up, its working like a champ. Easy setup and smooth operation.
Well worth the price!

New to band saws - this fit the bill 09/13/2019 11:55:48 AM

I purchased this saw for my wife who is getting into wood working as a hobby. We didn't have space in our shop for a floor standing saw, so this was the next best thing. I am very satisfied with the quality of the saw (even though it is made in China). So far, my wife has used it to make some little cars out of wood for our kids, and it works very well. The instructions for setting it up go into detail; in fact, there is so much detail that at times it was confusing to figure out how to set up. My only recommendation would be for the manufacturer to make a video showing how to go about each step.

Overall, a very good purchase for the price.

Excellent Bandsaw. I looked at several benchtop bandsaws and thought they were cheaply made. This saw screams quality. I've had it for about a month now and have used it several times. The saw operates flawlessly. I love it. It was well worth paying a little extra for it. I would highly recommend it.
