The new 12” sliding table saw, model GO820, from Grizzly Industrial has a number of features found on the company’s other 12” models bundled into a compact design, providing shop owners with an industrial-strength machine that has a smaller footprint, according to the company.
With a 7.5-hp, 220-volt, 3-phase motor, the saw is fully equipped with a scoring blade, crosscut fence with adjustable flip stop, dual dust ports, riving knife and standard rip fence. It has a space requirement of 134” x 119-1/2” for a full range of movement and weighs approximately 828 pounds.
“We intended this to be a model between our smaller GO623X, which is a 10” sliding table saw, and then our bigger 12” sliding table saws, such as our GO588 and GO699 models,” Grizzly technical and quality control manager Todd Ransom says.
“The cabinet or industrial shops tend to want the industrial machines. This has a 7.5-hp motor, so it still has the power the bigger ones have and still uses a 12” blade, but is in a compact footprint that takes up less shop space and still essentially has the other features on the bigger models.”
The saw features an aluminum rip fence and cast-iron main table. It has the capacity to rip panels up to 33” and crosscut up to 68-1/2”.
It sells for $4,695, about halfway between Grizzly’s 10” and 12” sliders.
“Those who want a 12” sliding table saw that don’t need the full capacity of the larger one can save money on this and get pretty much the equivalent end result with performance,” Ransom says.
