When all is said and done, more is said than done.
Well I emailed the CSRs again today, in regards to sx3
And they now said 4-6 weeks but today the cannot give me a more specfic time until an order is placed, what changed since last week friday?
Just received my Grizzly G0619/ (Super X3). I love it. The manual is great, and has an outstanding electrical diagram, t-shooting, and supurb photos. I looked online at the Grizzly website, the manual is even in color with respect to the electrical. These guys give great support. While heavy as a beast to get up ontop of my cinderblock pedistal, it was immaculate right out of the crate! Let me know if you have any questions.
The shipping crate is ~ 31" x 31" x 37" tall. There are rails on the bottom that hold the crate about 2.5" off of the ground. I suspect a regular fork lift could get under it assuming the spacing between the rails is appropriate. If not, it could be tipped and then slid onto the forks.
Can't say I have ever heard a VFD running a three phase motor, but the wiring diagram looks consistent with a brushless motor having sensors. There appears to be three main windings, three sensor lines plus power and common for the sensor circuits.
Once I have it running I may be able to get some scope pictures of the output of the control board.
I doubt very much that they included a VFD. It's nice to see the SX3's available now. I remember when there was the SX3 group buy initiative and all. Anybody got plans for CNCing theirs?
I got my Grizzly G0619! I am glad I waited. If you are set on the bench tops, wait and don't buy anything else!
Research paid off and I got in on the first order. My machine was superb right out of the crate, but even better, The manual is excellent. I am big on electrical, and the diagram with detailed photos of all electrical including circuit boards surprised me. So many companies just shove a cheap scanned copy of plans and superficial sales documentation in the box for customer support. That needs to change. By going the extra mile with their documentation, I think that Grizzly is in for the long haul. This manual even links to a color electrical diagram and photos at the big Griz at: http://images.grizzly.com/grizzlycom...ls/g0619_m.pdf
I am a skeptic in my field, and I tested the diagram, and it is nails-ON with the mill/drill. The rest of the manual answered all of my questions well.
VALUE: Excellent product. This machine was a great surprise for me and my needs. With the R8 spindle, better HP smooth cogged belt drive, wayed column for no registration loss, smooth X, Y, Z control, it exceeds my project needs for just over $1300 bucks. I canít wait to get the power feed, left-hand drill bits, and a 2Ē face mill.
However, rent an engine hoist to get it up on your bench.
Rent a cherry picker with nylon straps--NOT CHAINS. This critter was heavy!!!
