Left Tilting 10” Table Saw. Model G1023L. 3 H.P. 220 v, single Phase. MFG 2002. This table saw was hardly used. Still looks new. Table is in great shape. Comes with a Shop Fox Heavy Duty Fence and assorted assessories that you see in the picture on top of the table saw. Just one of the blades was $124. Four 0 5 Two Five Zero Four 8 Zero Zero. If you’re interested give me a call.

No….it’s a solid saw but it’s more than it cost new. He’s valuing the accessories in the $400-$600 range. A new updated G1023RL with warranty and a riving knife is $1294 shipped. Buy a nice new blade of your own….if you’re careful you get some great new blades for $124.

Where did you get that information? This model is no longer continued and no price is listed on the Grizzly website.

A new G1023SL was in the $1200 range new…. a few sold below $800 when they clearanced them. A used one in really nice shape would generally sell in the $600-$800 range….a little more with some nice stuff, but accessories don’t generally add a lot of value to the total, but helps make the deal attractive.

The info for the G1023RL is from Grizzly’s website. Bottom line….I wouldn’t spend $1200 for a used saw when an updated version is available for about the same price.

Thanks for the info. I wasn’t sure what to think when they didn’t have the price on the website. The accessories look nice, but it looks like the table saw alone used should be around $500 – $600 and the accessories on top of it might add another $200 to $250 for a top end of $850 – $900 to be generous. Too many people around where I live just don’t have a clue what price used tools should go for. Good if you’re selling, bad if you’re trying to buy. Lots of crap to sift through on CL.

I bought the same saw recently with stock 36” fence, anti kick back rollers, mid market blade, 3 inserts for 550 in CT. 1990s model.

That’s just how Craigslist is going to go. I find to get good deals you have to wait and keep watching it over time. Just getting on once to shop like it’s amazon.com is not going to work. The good deals come and go.

I paid $600 for a 1023z 3hp that was lightly used. Still had cosmoline on the table. It needed to be set up properly and the fence was not in great shape as they lost pieces when they moved it. Too much money in my opinion for a used saw.
