I’ve been searching Craigs List for quite some time looking for either a higher quality 14” or an older… like 1940’s old bandsaw. Well, I came across a Grizzly G0636XB that was purchased in 2012. They are currently going for 2750.00 before 99.00 freight. This saw is in VERY good condition and from the pictures it looks like it has hardly been used. It only comes with the factory 1” blade, yeah I’d replace it for sure!
what would be a fair price for this beast?
Thanks!

1000$ is what I’d pay for a steal. 1200$ is awesome.

Plus I am a very cheap bastard.

In my chicago area that would be a minimum of 1750$. You got a great steal of a deal in my neck of the woods.

Congrats!

Unfortunately I won’t be able to get it until Friday. I’m just hoping that he won’t sell it out from under me. Which brings me to a slight predicament…. how in the heck am I gonna load this 600+lb beast? I have access to a hydraulic hand truck with a 750lb capacity. Im thinking that might work? Neither of us has a forklift.

I’d probably do $1200 as well. It’ll be a lifetime saw and it basically has no limits as far as hobbyist or even light commercial goes. It’d go for it. I hate watching craigslist for a long time waiting for the perfect deal. Get a good deal on a great tool and buy it and get to work. That’s my CL motto.

As far as getting it into the truck, I loaded a 800 lb old powermatic into my truck with just one other guy by hand. Don’t ask how we did it. Needless to say it ended up on its side in the bed, but when I tumped it back out, no problems. Take the table off, take the motor out, take the blade off. If you can wrangle a friend and the seller helps, I bet you can get it into the truck.

Ryan,

I would rent a budget etc box truck with a lift gate. The lift gates are normally rated around a ton, it would be more than sufficient for getting it to and from.

I second that motion. Consider it insurance and well worth it. Don’t skimp when it comes to really heavy machinery.

Just moved my whole shop including some stuff heavier than that saw. I used a lift gate truck and it was a breeze. Ditto above

I have one of these at work that I plan on using. It’s a hydraulic lifting hand truck and it has a 750lb rating.
