I’m looking to upgrade from a contractor saw to something else. I’m leaning towards the Grizzly G0771Z:

I also came across a Maksiwa table saw which is similarly priced since it has free shipping.

It is a South American brand. Has anyone used these saws? Are they any good?

I’d stick with Grizzly because that Maksiwa is 3 phase.

The Table Saw SCI MAKSIWA was designed to provide an excellent finish when cutting MDF panels and others materials, with easy adjustment and operation. With precise guides, the Table Saw SCI MAKSIWA is the right choice for those seeking quality and precision in their cuts.

Specifications

Motor
1 Phase, 3 Phase, 3 HP

You’ll have a hard time ever reselling a Maksiwa if you’re in the USA.

The other question is – is it worth it to upgrade from an old Delta contractor saw to the Grizzly hybrid saw.

It’s subjective, but I think so. I made the jump from a pretty well tricked out General International GI50-185M1 contractor saw to a Craftsman 22124 hybrid, and was pretty happy with the upgrade. Losing the motor off the back was a positive, and so was the increased mass. Plus you’ll get a modern riving knife.

The jump to an industrial cabinet saw like the G1023RL is definitely more significant.

What does it mean that the Miksiwa motor is 1 phase, 3 phase? Does that mean that it has a VFD built in?
