Typically very competitive tools for a hobbyist and some commercial use. Compares well to Jet, GI, Rikon, Sunhill, some Delta, Shop Fox, Steel City, etc. Some of the smaller hand tools are not the same caliber as their machinery. Good company to deal with, great CS. Factor shipping into the equation and compare total "delivered costs" including gas and tax for local purchases. I like to buy local when I can but I have a couple of good Grizzly tools that were mailed ordered or picked up directly from their showroom....specifically a Griz G1182HW 6" jointer, and a G1029 DC.
FWIW, Shop Fox is owned by the same man, Shiraz Balolia. Many of the tools are very similar to the Griz counterparts. Shop Fox has a dealer network, dealer support, and a two year warranty. My new saw is a Shop Fox...basically a white Grizzly 1023SL...so far so good! Sometimes sale prices make SF the more attractive purchase.
