That is a bold statement and not generally backed up by those that have used both. Just an example would be the most recent review of it vs even the imported Jet where I think it was Roland Johnson who found the design of the Grizzly inferior to the Jet. Especially the most recent improved Hammer A3 is quite a ways in front of the Grizzly in design and production.

It is my firm belief the Hammer A3 line is significantly better than any of the J/Ps available for under $7K.
