Hey Paxorion, for us un-saavy users please share the “tweaks” that you used.
thanks


I was able to find the 2015 catalog and manual online. They re available on Grizzly s site but not listed/linked to. A saavy user will be able to tweak the Grizzly URLs and get to them. A few observations:

  1. The saw is listed at the same price as the G0715P for $795, but has an intro price in the 2015 catalog at $695.
  2. The manual does confirm cabinet mounted trunnions for alignment, and from what I could gleam, I can t help but think it is a variant of the Porter Cable or Steel City cabinet mounted trunnion design. Time will tell how robust the construction is.
  3. The saw comes wired for 110V, with a motor rated for 110V/15amps or 220V/7.5amps
  4. The saw is lighter than the G0715P, at 286lbs vs 393 lbs. A large chunk of that weight difference might be from the fence and rail system.
  5. The fence appears to be a mix of several designs, supposedly drawn from the Shop Fox Original and Aluma-Classic. I can t help but think it is very similar to the Ridgid R4512
  6. The fence rails are a split aluminum extrusion design, with a connector bar (similar to the Laguna Fusion)?
  7. The guard uses a modular guard design like most job-site saws and the hybrid saws from the big box stores.
  8. The saw is made in China and currently does not have CSA certification (if that matters to you)

My thoughts, is that the saw is very promising. The aluminum fence seems like the weak point to me, and I would hope that upgrade options are readily available. Nevertheless, I think for the price (introductory or not), it
would be a compelling buy for me if the choice was limited to 110V hybrids saws.
