This is what I plan to purchase. Is there any things I should watch for?

Wow, it looks a lot like the Grizzy G0453Z

I’ve had that machine for about 10 months. Got it from Rockler because of no sales tax and free lift gate delivery. Probably spent an hour getting tables lined up and double checking the height of the rollers and cutter head. I do not regret buying it and the 5 year warranty is another reason I picked this brand/model. I made two changes to the machine set up. 1) put machine on Rockler all terrain base since I move it around a lot. That base with the 5” wheels make it effortless to move. 2) I installed 3/4” foam weather stripping on the hood where it sits above head to towards eliminate vacuum leaks.

Have your say...
