New grizzly machines


There's been talk here and on woodnet about some new machines. I'm not sure if it's old news or not but the grizzly ad in the latest Woodwork magazine has some of the new machines. It looks like there's going to be a g0490 which looks like a dj-20 copy with parallelogram tables. It's 1" longer and a little lighter than the 586. Looks like fewer cuts per minute also. But the infeed table is longer just like the dj-20.
They also have a picture of the new mini 12" drum sander. I was under the impression that it would be the size of a lunchbox planer. I guess it looks like that but the ad says 200lbs.
They also have new 15" and 20" planers which look just like the shopfox versions now only with some green paint. They also look to be about $250 less than the old machines. Looks like china vs taiwan. All of the big machines have those shopfox style mobile bases as well.
The 10" jointer isn't in the ad. I did see a picture of it in one of the other recent woodworking mags though.

Nothing like good old competition to keep everyone on their toes, and prices in check.

Their old open base 15" is reduced to $575. How much is the new one? I think that is my next upgrade.

The new one is the closed base one with the motor in the base, not the motor on top version. 3hp motor. It looks identical to the g1021z only with cast iron infeed and outfeed tables now instead of the roller tables. That one was $1095, now it looks like it's on sale for $995. The new one is the g0453. It's $775 in the ad. The paint scheme is a little different also, it's the green/cream colors like the other new machines. The real cool thing is that for $80 more than the old price of the 15" planer, you can now get the 5hp 20" planer.
I've heard good things about the new 10" jointer also. I think they're trying to go after that 10" oliver. The oliver is $2000 iirc. Since the dj-20 is around $1300, and the grizzly copy is around $750, I bet the new 10" jointer with straight blades will come in around $1175. And I know there will be a version with the spiral cutter head.

I agree it is a great buy, but it is out of my league. They aren't replacing the cheap one? I will just have to soldier on with my 12".

They're probably replacing everything that was made in taiwan. I've only seen what's in this ad.
