I bought a new Hammer K3 slider last winter, 79” crosscut ability with 48” rip capacity. Amazing what a sliding table can do for you. My crosscut panels measured diagonal are less than 1/32” difference. Almost perfectly square. I can also straight line solid wood boards, get a better edge joint than with a jointer.

I am into my 5th cedar chest and crosscutting is a real pain. Ripping s no problem since I have a SLR saw. I can see down the road gettng a regular sliding saw or even a panel saw. I would have to get into a bigger shop 4500sq now and I am stuffed…..

I have not used the Grizzly sliding table but have some experience of small and larger sliding tables. Years ago I had a Ryobi BT3000 with a built in sliding table and when I bought my PM66 years ago I ordered it with an Excaliber sliding extention. I found that the size of the BT3000’s slider coludn’t do any more than a upgraded miter gage could do . The Excalibur worked fine but took up too much space for the shop I had at the time. What I found out was for the amount of sheet goods I was cutting I really didn’t need a sliding table. I guess it depends what you want to use a sliding table for and how often you would use it. I’ve see a number of shop made sliding tables when searching images on Google. If you would rather make one than buy one that might work for you. Sorry I could not answer your question about the Grizzly sliding table but perhaps a short overview might help some.
Here’s one of the shop made sliding tables.
