High RPMs

The saw on the Grizzly G1023RL Cabinet Table Saw rotates at a speed of 3450 RPM. This high speed enables the blade to cut through most woods as fast as you can feed it in. The high speed also reduces chipping and produces a smoother, cleaner edge.

Cast-Iron Table

The cast-iron table has a mirror finish and is durable enough to last a lifetime. It’s sturdy, easy to clean, and can tilt to help you get the perfect angle for your cuts.

Sealed Ball-Bearing Construction

The sealed ball-bearing construction keeps dust and other contaminants away from the vital internal components responsible for the high RPMs. This closed design eliminates the need for lubrication, and it also prevents lubrication from leaking out.

Power

If there is one area where this saw is slightly lacking, it’s in the engine. Three horsepower creates very high RPM and can cut most woods easily, but after extended use, it tends to get hot and can overheat.

Price

Cabinet table saws aren’t cheap, at least not the ones worth owning. But this saw delivers great bang for the buck. A 3-HP engine is plenty for most hobby projects but moving up from that comes with a big jump in price. Given how universally happy G1023RL users are with their saws, the cost is worth every penny.

The Grizzly G1023RL Cabinet Table Saw comes with a one-year warranty.

With the rails, it’s five feet wide, and the rails extend one foot from the saw.
