- Grizzly G0513X2 17" Bandsaw 2HP w/Cast Iron Trunnion
- Brand: Grizzly | Category: Bandsaws
Just received this on Monday. It came via UPS Freight, and I paid $39 extra for the lift gate service. I highly recommend this service since this saw is a beast!
1. It came in one of flimsiest ‘crates’, if you can call it that, that I have ever seen. This saw weighs in at 325 pounds, more like 425 pounds, and this crate was built for maybe 200 pounds max.
2. The email instructions tell you to inspect the crate for damage before signing. I did this, saw nothing, and signed away.
3. Unpacked saw, all parts present and accounted for.
4. Went to assemble the saw today and found that the entire blade guard assembly was shorn off. It actually looks like it was CUT off (see pictures)
So, this is where this review will temporarily end due to broken machinery. I have emailed Grizzly customer service, I hear they are fantastic, but it is New Year’s Day and no one is in. We will see how fantastic they are! My hopes are high.
