Felt it was well worth the $250 he was asking and brought it home. Thinking it may have been a special edition as it looks identical to the Grizzly except its blue. Motor was 5hp and there is also a smaller conveyor belt motor. I’m going to call Grizzly tomorrow to see if its theirs and what if any parts they have for it.

It ran quiet, but I’m going to either clean and repack the pillow blocks or replace them and the v-belt. I’d also like to find a new conveyor belt for it.

Chain seems a bit loose, anyone know how much slack they should have?
