Thread: Bandsaw

  1. #1


    In the next couple of months I hope to buy a new bandsaw. At this time I am looking at the Grizzly G0555 or the G0555X. Is there a lot of differance between the two. Or should I say is one worth 200.00 over the other. Anyone use them? They seem to get good reviews. It would be used for cutting bowl blanks. I would also get the riser for it.
    So which would you get?
    Also open to suggestions on other saws at same money.

    I have the G0555X. Yes it is worth it because it has a 1 1/2 hp motor which can be wired 110/220. The extra 1/2 hp with the riser block installed makes it a great machine especially with Timberwolf blades on it.

    Bernie can you tell me how tall the machine is with the riser? My shop is not that tall and would like to make sure it would fit.
