I think I am down to 2 options :
1) delta model 36-725 a lowes exclusive delta 10 inch 13 amp
2) grizzly G0771 10 inch hybrid

going from a skill tabletop $150 saw and looking to get into more serious woodworking but also on a tight budget.

Grizz for sure. I’m not a present day Delta fan at all.

Personally, I would be careful buying any tool made exclusively for a big-box retailer. They have to take something out to get the price down. Grizzly is essentially factory direct and getting parts and accessories from them would be much preferred to dealing with Lowes.

If you are going for the G0771, note that description says it is prewired for 115v 20 Amp outlet so make sure you have 20Amp outlet in your garage or shop. Most are only rated at 15 Amps and you might blow the breakers, especially if you are using anything else on the same circuit at the same time. You can also switch it to 220V if you have one of those available.

  • Edit: You may need to check with Grizzly to see if the saw requires a 120v 20amp receptacle as well (not just the breaker). The prongs on 20amp plug are different than a 15 amp plug.

I’ve got the Delta from Lowes and it works fine for general purpose use. I have pushed it pretty hard with no complaints. The biggest compromise in my opinion is that the rails for the fence are in 2 parts making it a little harder to get it setup and aligned properly. The built in mobile base is nice and saves a little more money compared to buying or building a mobile base for the Grizzly. The Delta would be a nice step up from your bench top saw. There is a great review by thetinman here on LJ of the Delta saw.

I actually tried to order the Grizzly hybrid saw first but they wouldn’t deliver it to me because they would have had to drive through my ally to deliver into my garage and they couldn’t guarantee that the delivery service would bring it back there.
