The problem I have with grizzly is you are subject to their delivery network…I have two tools for them, one was delivered by a good conscientious person ant the other by an idiot. Who wasn’t there when they said they would and damaged it….while Grizzly has a good Customer Service, you are still waiting anohter week or two and doing the repair yourself.

I have a saw stop and love it. But, we have endless arguments whether the saw is worth it and how much the braking system adds and on and on….bottom line is buy what you think is right for you. Yes the braking system adds more, but what about the saw? Power is major consideration too… is the fence…..look them over, gather data, like you are doing here and make an informed decision. If safety is a bigger deal…..get the saw stop, if not get someting else. The politics of it should be put aside, they sold saw stop about a year ago and the original owner is gone… long do we need to beat that drum?

My point is I would buy from a local brick and mortar store that is in or close to your community that has delivery with a Tommy lift. I only bought the grizzly things because they were not carried around here or close….(they were metal working tools). The brick and mortar stores need your dollars to stay around. They are fighting a two front war…the internet and the big box boys…..and lets face it, for most of us they are handy to have around, even though you may have to pay a little more.

Just my .02….....
