This 600-pound green gorilla
(http://www.grizzly.com/products/item.cfm?itemnumber=g0566) looks very
attractive. If somebody made any sawdust with that, please share your
If the alternatives are MM16 and LT16HD, it could make sense to get a
larger, heavier, and cheaper bandsaw from Grizzly. Why people are willing

I picked up its older little brother, the G1012 18-incher, for about a
grand cheaper. the G0566 looks sweet! I put link belts on it

MiniMax and Laguna will do the same height (or more) for resawing, and
are built a TON heavier/beefier than the Grizzly. The NEW MM16 will
resaw to 16inches I seem to recall
