When you count Tax and Shipping (freight is like $80) you’re still about $100 in savings.

Yeah, I figure you can discount the riser block and blade since I would have had to buy that for the ultimate bandsaw too.

You might consider at least partially discounting the link belt and urethane tires as well. Even if the belt/tires on the Ridgid are in bad shape, those would be upgrades on the Griz.

True, but I think it might be debatable as to what percent I can discount those. In the end there will still be some things the Griz is better at and some that mine will be better at so I’m hoping those will take care of the partial discounts.

Have your say...
