I had the Dewalt for a long time until I had some room and stepped up to a Grizzly 20” GO454. What a difference in results….but the Dewalt is a very good machine for it’s size and price….especially if you are not working with wide or long boards. I run the heck out of this Grizzly and it takes it all (5 hp just plows through the wood without a whimper).....I converted the knives to a spiral (I don’t recommend that if you do not understand mechanics (removing pulleys…etc)) – though to be honest….I think the knives made just as good a surface as the spiral (but it is quieter now and the inserts are easier to change).
