I read a review of an 8" grizzly jointer with the spiral head and they said it takes a little more force to push the board through. They figured it was because of the almost constant cutting of the spiral head. Have you noticed any of this WDH?

No, unless I guess that the cutters are dull.  I have never turned the carbide cutters yet in over three years, and I have ran a whack of lumber over it.  With knives, I would have had to have sharpened them at least three or four times by now.
