I’ve never been impressed with the Herculift mobile base for the R4511. It never performed well over the brick paver floor I have, and occasionally the catch would slip, dropping the saw to the floor.
I came up with this design to solve that problem. The base is constructed from 2x’s that I squared up and sized appropriately to the saw’s dimensions. It sits at the same height as the original saw, and now rolls effortlessly over my floor with the help of the 5” double locking casters.
I also color matched to Ridgid orange paint that turned out pretty well, and now the overall look is more of a cabinet saw.
