I’ve done some reading and understand that I can separate the cabinet and the main body of the saw for transport. I also know that I need to transport it with the spine down. My question is… will they fit in the back of a Honda CR-V with the seats down…....? If not there is a Menards and Lowes within a few mins drive, I’m just trying to save a buck.

If you are talking about the cast iron one, you can also split the frame in half – it’s just one bolt. Don’t forget to take the table off as well, as otherwise you will most likely crack the trunnions.

Cheers,

What Brad said. I have a CRV also, and while I think you could break down the cast iron one to fit I think putting a steel one in there would be a real problem.

Remove the passenger seat and leave it at home before you go pick up the saw – this gives you more space and flexibility. I also take along a few of the Harbor Freight $7 moving blankets.

I have transported two 14” band saws (not at the same time though) in my Toyota Avalon whose back seats don’t fold down. Both times, I took the saw off the cabinet, put the cabinet in the trunk along with the motor and laid the saw down on the back seat. Lighten up the saw as much as you can by taking the table off and removing the covers if they can be removed. You should be able to fit the saw in your CRV without any problem if you follow what I did. I also agree with laying down moving blanket to protect the car and the saw.

Another example why every ww’er should have a pickup (yes, full size no rice burner) and/or a trailer (preferably both!)

How do you guys haul lumber, rent a truck?

Like this, perhaps? I’ve seen somewhat similar things while at the big orange box.

Be sure to cover the door gasket with blankets or pads.

I hauled this workbench in my CRV.

Of course I forgot to take pictures but it was a perfect fit, it was the limit of the car tho….. and her she is in her new home, now I need to get some 4” to 2.5” adapters for the dust port.

Have your say...
