I recently broke down and dropped some cash ($180) for this new product from Rockler. My shop space is limited and I have little space to move around my table saw.
The parts are gigantic, and almost over the top, but in a good way. The wheels, thickness of steel and bolts are all over-sized. Assembly was so easy, there were no instructions…
It can accommodate for just about any standard sized piece of small shop equipment, but it offers some extension sets (longer metal bars) to allow for larger pieces.
The hardest part of the whole process is coming up with a strategy to assemble it under your machinery and avoid as little lifting as possible. I used some 2×4’s to achieve the lift needed to get my SawStop table saw (contractors grade) up onto the supports.
It boasts a maximum capacity of 800 pounds. After that, you probably shouldn’t be moving a piece of equipment that big.
It’s performance is amazing across concrete, in fact, my 4 year old son can move it as easy as his own bike.
The locks are rock steady, and it feels like there has been some reduced vibration in the saw’s performance as a result of the heavy duty 5” urethane casters.
I highly recommend this for anyone that needs to regularly move a table saw, or other large tool around to make your shop space bigger.
