I just purchased the Grizzly 17 inch X series for $895 USD. I am surprised at how well they are put together. It has a 2 hp, 220 volt, motor, the quick release for the blade tension and will handle up to a 1 inch blade. What surprised me most was the quality of the casting for the table. Very smooth and clean on the underside. I have it sitting in the shop but will probably be a couple of weeks before I get it running. I paid $50 PA sales tax and GST and PST at the border as I picked it up at the store in Muncey PA.
If your dreams don't scare you, you are not dreaming big enough
