Good grief,
Let me rephrase that GOOD GRIEF!

I was looking at my order for the G0453Z and came across this G1021X2. Wasn’t there before I ordered the 453.

Aside from the roller base which I don’t need can anyone shed some opinions on why I should or shouldn’t switch to the 1021.


Got pi—-ed and called Grizzly. Guy had no clue a 1021 was being produced. After he checked on it he says the backorder time is 2 months and we know what that means, maybe by sept. (same as their Shopfox 15”)

So I guess I bite a $700 bullet difference if I want to do anything this summer.

Follow-up on the planers.
Went to Grizzly site just now and the G1021X2 has vanished.
Perhaps someone had inadvertently put it on the website? Or maybe the long wait time had an effect.

The 1021 looks like it came out in 2007 and was probably replaced by the G0453 in later years. The internet references I found on it were all dated 2007 and 2008. It looks like somebody updated the Canadian PDF spec sheet for it 2 days ago.

Grizzly sent me an email saying they posted the 1021X in error. And added:

“We understand that the models will be available at some unknown time in the future; however, they are not currently available and the pricing shown was incorrect.”

I have my eye on the G0453Z. Let me know how you like yours. I am about 3 months away from ordering. Maybe the new model will be out by then…..

The guy at Grizzly said I could order a 1021Z now but they aren’t expected to ship for at least six weeks. Again we know has that goes. Will say I did not like it having the serrated out-feed roller. It has a 18amp motor as opposed to the 453 15amp??? And I don’t need a roller base like the 453. Probably will remove it if I can.
When I get to use mine I will post.
