Start your drooling: Grizzly recently introduced a sliding table saw with a footprint small enough to fit into smaller shops. Why would you even want one of these saws? For one, forget about complicated miter sleds, the whole 12-1/4″ x 39-3/4″ extruded aluminum table on the left side of the blade can slide.
This model also features a second scoring blade to eliminate tear-out. The saw comes with the now-required riving knife which is adjustable. Besides the 4″ main dust collection port, Grizzly built a 2-1/2″ dust port into the blade guard. The miter fence has a built-in adjustable flip stop for making identical cuts and can be positioned 45° to the right and left. The saw comes with a 220V single phase 5HP motor which spins the 5/8″ arbor at 4,000 RPM.
Grizzly makes the 14-3/4″ x 27″ main table from cast iron, which they precision grind for flatness. If you need to use it like a standard table saw the the sliding table locks in place. The saw has a 34″ maximum rip capacity and the sliding table can cross cut up to 27-1/2″.
This sliding table saw will run you about $2,700 after shipping the 572-lb. machine to your door.
