Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw grizzly 110 wiring

I am looking to upgrade my bandsaw and I’m looking at the Grizzly models G0555x, G0457 and G0513P. Does anyone have experience with the last two at 110V? I don’t have a 220v in my garage and I’d rather not rewire the house (although I could do the 220 to 110 swap on the actual saws). Has anyone just plugged them in after changing them to 110 or do I need to rewire the garage if I want one? I could just be sure and go G0555x but the other two seem like what I really want (although I don’t plan on rewiring the garage).
Thanks,
Brad

I have the G0513X2. It is running off of 220. If you run it off of 110, it is my understanding you will draw more amperage. I did not rewire my garage, I just added a line for the saw coming out of the breaker box. just the cost of the wire, some conduit, a 220 outlet and a box. it’s to bad you don’t live closer. I am selling mine to make room in my garage. its only 2 yrs. old and has about 2 hours on it. still using the original blade I bought with it.

All I know is that Grizzly band saw machines have good reviews at many different forum sites and at www.bandsawreviews.com .

Have your say...
