After much thought and stress I finally made a decision and placed my order. I chose the 1023 in the end. The story doesn’t end there though. When placing the order the nice lady informed me it was curbside delivery. I chuckled and said we have no curbs in rural Montana. Further conversation revealed no delivery on unpaved roads. Well now that was a real problem! She gave me the number of FedEx. Called them and got a busy signal. Same thing as many times as I tried. Seems like a company that large should at least have a recording. Called back to Grizzly. Got a man this time who gave me number of closest FedEx. Called them and they said they would deliver as long as they could get a 28 foot trailer in. Jet just had my jointer delivered a week ago with a 40 foot trailer so it seems all is well. Called Grizzly back and completed order. Added in the oscillating sander for good measure.

Hope I made the right decision. I agonized between the 1023 and 0690. Liked the dust port better on the 0690 but otherwise kind of liked the other features of the 1023.

I’ve had my 1023RL for about a year now and don’t regret the purchase one bit.

When I ordered it, I paid for the lift gate service, only to discover that the trucker could not get to my house because it was spring here, and the road was posted. Ended going about 40 mi to the distribution center, and picked it up myself. Thanks to my Kubota, got it into the garage, then the cellar. Good exercise!

Grizzly refunded the lift gate, by the way, with no fuss.

Both are solid choices. I like the G1023RL for the fence, dovetail threaded vertical raising mechanism, and serpentine belt. Enjoy!
