The G0771 is more of a contractor’s saw with a skirt than a true cabinet saw. I looked at it long and hard and bought the Grizzly G0883P instead. The G0883P is also a hybrid saw and not a “true” cabinet saw but it’s a step up from the G0771.

I also upgraded it with an Incra TS-LS fence and M1000 miter gauge as well as a 3-1/2 hp Milwaukee router table to replace the right wing.

Accurate, smooth cutting using a Freud LU83 blade and a ZCI.

Yes, there is a saw under all that crap!

My only complaint is the non-existent dust collection. That 4” dust port splits into a 1-1/4” line to the blade guard and a 2-1/2” line going to the under deck blade shroud. Since the hose splits internally there isn’t as much draw as you would expect even after capping the small line.

The 2-1/2” line quickly clogged even with an 1100CFM DC hooked directly with a 6’ run. The clog was so bad I couldn’t clear it and finally just disconnected the 2-1/2” line and let the dust fall to the open bottom. Eventually when the dust reaches the access door I’ll have to clean it out.

Other than the dust collection I love the saw.
