I own the Grizzly 12" 5959Z and it is without question a serious saw.
So far it has not failed to impress me. It cuts through anything I
throw at it with minimal effort. (And I'm currently using inexpensive
HD/Ridgid 60t combination blades).
The saw is large, heavy and stable. Mine is 5 HP 1 phase and plows
through anything. It does not move or vibrate. The Shop Fox 53" rail
and fence system that comes with it is very accurate once tuned.
I would not (and have not) hesitate to buy any large Grizzly tool in
the future. (I do not work for them) I do own the 20" band saw,
6"jointer and a 24" drum sander though. Oh and a really nice Cyclone
