Grizzly’s new 14” Extreme Series resaw band saw, model G0555XH.

Grizzly Industrial recently introduced the 14” Extreme Series resaw band saw, model G0555XH, featuring pre-installed riser blocks, a 1-3/4-hp motor, and the company’s ‘Deluxe’ aluminum resaw fence.

The new model replaces model G0555X, which had a 1-1/2-hp motor.

“When resawing you’re doing bigger cuts so you’re pushing the motor to the max. The bigger motor goes a long way to make the cuts faster and easier,” says Grizzly’s Todd Ransom.

The saw also features a powder-coated cast-iron frame and computer-balanced wheels. An extra-long upper frame provides 12” of resawing capacity in addition to the included riser block. The table area measures 16-1/8” x 21-3/4”. The rack-and-pinion guide post has upper and lower ball-bearing blade guides, and there’s a quick-release for the blade tension, according to Grizzly.

The G0555XH sells for $895.
