    Grizzly G5014 bandaw

    This bandsaw is still available. Asking is $800. It seems high to me. What do you think?

    Update: price may be reasonable. I just spoke with the guy and he said that it is in its original pacakging on the pallet and the package shows G0514X.

    G0514 is 2 HP. G0514X is 3HP.

    It is located on a fourth floor of an office building. Not sure if it can be brought down to the parking easily without a floor jack.

    If it's as the guy described it, then it ought to be a decent buy. I'd sure hope the building it's in has a freight elevator, though.

    Rent an appliance dolly (U-Haul has them) to make the move easier.

    If it is on a pallet, then the tool of choice is a pallet jack. I usually find them sitting around loading docks of buildings, so you may not need to rent anything.

    When it reaches your truck or trailer, I would lay it on it's back (spine down) - most bandsaws like that position, rather than being balanced as a top-heavy load.

    I am heading out there right now.

    I may need Vaughn's services again. Hope he is available.

    See you Monday. I'll have a couple of different types of dollies on hand. And I'm sure we can get it in a regular office building elevator. If they got it up there, we can get it down.

    Larry, I have put a $200 deposit down. Even then, I won't be sure that I got it until it is loaded on Vaughn's truck.

    Well, if it's been there that long, I bet you have a good shot. Looks like a great saw. Wish I was closer. One of the only things I'm actually really good at is 'liftn and toten', Just like Jethro Bodine...
