Not the Grizzly but I just got a Makita and so far I am really liking it. Marc Spagnuolo, the Wood Whisperer did a good review on the Grizzly.

I have the Sheppach model, which is the same saw, I believe. the tracks are identical because I connect them to cut full lengths of plywood.

It seems to work OK for me. There is a little sawdust that escapes but I suck it up after each cut. My shop vac connects to the dust port with no problems.

I have seen a video on You Tube about hacks to make the saw track better and eliminate the dust spillage, but I forgot where it is and haven't tried any fixes.

Just finished breaking down 8 sheets of plywood using this method to cut up the big pieces into manageable sizes so I can rip them on the table saw.

Hope this helps.
Mike

Thanks Mike and Clay. My main use would be in cutting plywood into resonable pieces.

Frank I didn't post because I have a Festool track saw and it's not what you want . But I'm so with you on this breaking down plywood into more manageable pieces .
As a matter of fact if I had known about track saws before I joined here , I would not have bought a table saw with a 53" fence , but a 36" instead .
I love my track saw and couldn't live without out , and it's sure nice when you need fix a sheet that's out of square

And consider this, if you have a board with a crooked edge (not straight), you can cut one with a track saw!

I've done it.

I like the way those plunge instead of the guard like a regular circular saw. Those guards seem to always be fighting you.

These seem like a great alternative to panel (wall) saws which are too pricey and too big for many small shops and they can travel to job sites.

I was wondering if they have rubber or something on the bottom to keep them from sliding. Or do they need to be clamped?

YES I own the Dewalt saw. The tracs on these saws have no-slip strips on the bottom. I think they all have a groove underneath to hold a specially designed clamp.

Paul my Festool has a non slip bottom like mentioned above , but I usually get paranoid and also use the clamps underneith .
I used to use a clamping system from CT that you guide your skill saw with . I almost always messed up with it , and wish I had know about tracksaws
