It's been a few month since purchasing a grizzly 690 and I've been running dust collection since new but I seem to get a good bit of sawdust laying in the bottom of the cabinet. Is this normal? My dc have good suction but seems to leave a lot of dust in the saw. Also the bevel and height gears came with packing grease which now are covered in dust. There's no point in cleaning these right? The saw is kept in a shop outside and is only heated when im in there.

I am only on my second cabinet style saw. Both have had some dust in the bottom of the cabinet. I think it is the nature of the large cabinet volume. Not possible to pull air equally inside the cabinet.

I would consider removing the dusty grease and replace with a dry-lube as mentioned in this thread on the topic.

Yes it's completely normal to still have some dust build up in the cabinet. As far as the dust mixed in with the packing grease that's more of a personal preference. I know guys that clean all that off and re-grease on a near weekly basis. And then there are others who never do. I personally use dry lube like Dave was talking about. But for the record you should read the owners manual or call the manufacturer and do exactly what they tell you to do.
