The G0555 is the one that gets all the mention, google archives barely
even mention the G0580. I'm trying to see if I understand all the
The stand: Both open, but the G0555's is closed front and back. I
presume it's a bit more sturdy.
The motor: 1 hp vs 3/4 hp. However the amp ratings are 10 vs 9 which
leads me to think the difference is not much.
Roller guides vs blocks. The google archives show people switching
out the rollers on the G0555 in favor of blocks. I'd like to use
smaller blades more often than resawing, so I prefer blocks.
The table dimensions are the same, but the G0580 tilts left 15
degrees, the G0555 10 degrees. I'm not sure what this indicates,
beefier trunions on the G0555?
The G0555 has 2 speeds, but I fail to see what the 1500 fpm speed is
G0555 has a better fence.
Shipping weight 210 vs 163. Motor + stand + fence differences add up
to 47 lbs? They must share the same castings. right? Though the
riser blocks have different part numbers they look identical.
It kinda bugs me they want to charge me another 10 bucks to ship the
riser block separately, they can't fit it in the truck with the saw?
