I’m trying to decide between the Rikon 10-326 and Grizzly G0555lx w/ Riser. There are a few clear differences but with the freight for grizzly and the sale on Rikon the prices are only $100 off. Planning for the long haul on this one and need some help!

There is no comparison by my way of thinking. The steel frame Rikon will be more rigid and provide higher band tension for resaw operations and the higher horsepower really matters. The Grizzly saw is well regarded but isn’t in the same league.

Between the two the 10-326 is a lot more saw for the money.

Thanks for the reply guys. I couldn’t help but agree with you guys and had to go with the Rikon. Got it home already and tried a few cuts with the stock blade in some 8/4 hard maple and made a few thin veneers just for the fun of it. Thing cuts like butter now…can’t wait till I get my 3 blade pack from Timberwolf.

You’ve got a great saw there from a great company. I would humbly suggest returning of the Timberwolf blades as they are decidedly subpar. Check with Iturra Design and get a properly welded Lenix blade. You’ll be glad you did.
