    It appears they've dropped the price to $3295.00.

    Specs look good.

    Any opinions?

    I think you mean the t40 is 3295. The t60 S is 5395.00

    Greg, I bought the T-40 for $2500, including outboard turning stand and legs. It is an excellent lathe. I will bet the bigger T-60 will have the same quality.

    The Harvey T-60 is an excellent lathe. I have a Grizzly G0800 which is the first version of the Harvey T-60 and has a 3hp A/C Motor and inverter combination. The newest version of the T-60 has a 2 hp D/C servo motor with controller combination. I think Grizzly must have purchased the patent rights to the older version in order to have a specific offering in the large lathe category. Still, the T-60 is a fine unit. The D/C servo motor is industrial rated.

    I have a T60-S, bought it about 10 months ago. Great lathe overall. I paid 4,999 on sale. The original price was 5,999. At 3,295, that is a steal. I am wondering what the mark up is to be able to drop something from 5,999 to 3,250!? The motor is super quiet and smooth; powerful enough for coring huge blanks. I think the banjo could use a bit of beefing up around where the post goes in though.
    I'd grab that bugger at that price!

    Am I seeing things, or does the Harvey T60 look almost identical to the Grizzly version?

    It is the same lathe with a different motor and controller.
