Grizzly Adds New Tool Comparison Feature to Website

Grizzly ChartIf 2013 is your year to buy a new stationary tool, and Grizzly is one of the companies you’re considering for that purchase, they’ve just added a slick new search feature that could make the process quite easy. It’s a machinery comparison chart widget that generates an instant side-by-side cross-reference for up to four Grizzly machines at once.

The process for setting up a comparison is about as simple as it gets. Go to Grizzly’s website homepage (click here), then click on the “Comparison Charts” tab along the left-hand side of the screen. It will give you the option of selecting from among 18 different stationary machine categories in Grizzly’s inventory. Options include woodworking band saws, table saws, dust collectors, jointers, shapers, planers, drum and wide belt sanders, edge sanders, power feeders, mortisers, miscellaneous sanders and table saws, wood and metal lathes, drill presses and more. Then, four boxes with pop-down menus at the top of the page give you the relevant models of your search. Click on four machines that interest you. Their catalog specs, including pricing, fill out a chart at the bottom of the page.

From there, you can print the page out for future reference. Currently, you can’t save your search in a Grizzly account, but a few clicks makes the chart just as easy to recreate again.

I don’t know of another machine tool company that offers a similar search feature, but with the plethora of different models Grizzly offers, it sure makes sense for Grizzly customers! Give it a try, and see if you don’t agree.

  1. I went to the Grizzly home page and clicked on “Comparison Chart” on the left side of the Grizzly homepage. I then went and clicked on four band saws to compare, price and features wise. That is a sweet addition to the online catalog.

  2. Suggestion for helping to prevent rust on table saws, band saws, etc., with cast iron or steel tops. Avoid blowing off saw dust with your breath. It contains water vapor with enzymes that can attack the metal surfaces. [Thats what they are suposed to do with the other, regular organic things they come in contact with in your mouth - help break down the food.] I have a pattren of corrosion dots on my cast iron band saw table that matches where my breath went when I used to blow off the dust myself. Now I use protective coatings and a brush and the corrosion battle is less of a hassle. I also cover my machines when finished with old cotton sheets that seem to help, too.

  3. I have the Grizzly G0715P table saw. A really great combination of contractor and cabinet-style. The price is SURPRISINGLY low considering the quality and flexibility offered.

    I wasn’t able to find this table saw in the comparison chart o Grizzly’s site though. Is it there somewhere?

  4. This is an excellent new feature to the website, a common problem of most people/myself in general, when I am trying to purchase power tools online is that I get frustrated going back and forth. I can think of a few other sites who are in desperate need of a tool like this…
