That’s certainly on the high end. Though that label says “Cabinet Saw” this is certainly a hybrid. Cons on this would be: smaller motor, table mounted trunions, no riving knife, right tilt. The fence is probably the one pro.

You’re right that for about ~$300 more (delivered) you could get a Grizzly hybrid delivered that fixes a few of these issues: cabinet mounted trunions, left tilt, riving knife. Fence won’t be as good, but more than adequate. Realistically I’d be comparing this saw to the Rigid/Delta hybrids that run about $600.

Depending on your market, you should be able to find a decemt used Unisaw for $800. If you could get this down to $500-600 I’d consider it.

Keep looking.

Cheers,

PS: That fence is trashed and unusable as-is.

Thanks for the replies guys. I’m not completely sold on it either and not in a big hurry. Don’t really like the right tilt as all I have ever used was left tilt. The cons outweigh the pros at the moment and it really doesn’t get my adrenaline flowing! haha

Think I’ll keep looking!

Currently looking online at a used Grizzly G0715P 10” hybrid Polar Bear Series that looks to be in very nice shape! 2HP motor, Griz industrial camlock T-style rip fence, left tilt, cast iron trunnions, cast iron table, riving knife and the list goes on. 45 minutes from my house too which is nice.

At $995 asking price it’s probably on the high side and out of my budget at that price.

My plan was to get a feel for what you guys think is a fair offer and maybe go from there. I’ll be selling my tried and true classic Makita 2708 with Rousseau table to help put toward the purchase of a nice hybrid or cabinet saw. I should not have a probably getting around $350 – $400 for it.

Thanks

I’d laugh that guy off the phone asking $995. That saw retailed for $895, so absent some huge haul of extras it’s way overpriced. I could see offering $600 for it.

My thoughts exactly Ed. Is this dude so out of touch that it’s not even worth trying to deal with him? Haha!

Seams like here in WI & IL sellers are asking way too much for their saws.

Have your say...
