So I’m caving in and ready to order from Grizzly, so thought I would just check to see if anyone had any coupon codes available. I just ordered a catalog, so hopefully I’ll have a coupon code in a couple weeks and can return the favor.

I just received there catalog and I haven’t seen a coupon code. I am ready to place an order to and was hoping they would have better deals than what I’ve seen. But I guess they got to make a profit to stay competitive.

GOOD LUCK!! Glad to see you bought the Grizz. I had mine delivered to my company’s freight dock, loaded it in a lift gate P/U with a forklift, had help getting it in the shop, and still wore my old ass out on the project. It is heavy, well packed and a real bear to get on a mobile base. But, it is 3 years old and still passes the nickle test. You definately got your moneys worth. Put a Forrest WWII on it and you are ready to rock. Have fun.

I have a handcart and a walkout basement. I went for the extra $34 for lift gate service (seems a bit pricey to me for something that should be standard w/ a 500lb delivery). Im just HOPING I can get the thing loaded on the handcart and be on my way. Luckily i have a very gently sloping path down to the basement door. I guess one thing I didnt consider was the size of the door to get it in though..ack!

Any tips for getting it on the mobile base? I added the shop fox base on their site onto the order as well.

I ordered their catalog about 6 months ago and got a 5% off any purchase with it good until end of December which I plan on using soon. I just want to use it right because I suspect I won’t be getting any others anytime soon. Good luck.

I set the saw’s base angle braces on 2” blocks registered toward the center, assembled the mobile base around the base and then levered base and saw up one side at a time, removed the blocks and eased the saw, mobile base and all down to the floor. Kind of a Rube Goldberg setup, but it worked for me in a 1 man shop. A $149 folding equipment hoist from HF would have worked better! I know better now.

I opted for the lift gate service when I ordered my Grizzly G0690. The truck driver was kind enough to bring the saw up my driveway and into the garage. From what I understand, they are not required to do that even with lift gate service, but it is not unusual that they are willing to help out.
I brought the saw from my garage, into the house, and down the basement stairs in pieces by myself. I took the table tops and and a couple other miscellaneous pieces off the cabinet to lighten the load as much as possible. I used a dolly to get it up the two steps from the garage into the house, and then i experimented a little bit before eventually deciding that tipping the cabinet onto its back and sliding it down the carpeted stairs on an old blanket would be easiest. That worked really well for me. The rest of the pieces were light enough to carry down by hand. I put the cabinet on the mobile base before I reinstalled the top and other parts; it was heavy, but not unmanageable. Good luck!
