I’m going to be moving soon and I have an 18” Laguna bandsaw. When I bought it used I got a small trailer and laid it on it’s back, now I’ll be moving everything so I’d like to keep it upright. I really don’t think it’ll be an issue as long as it’s stable, I believe that’s how they’re shipped from the factory.

Thanks
Myles

Sounds logical to me…

Just tie everything down… to stop ANY movement… on Everything…

Happy moving!

2 wheel band saws are pretty tippy. I prefer
to lay them down but if the saw is surrounded
by other stuff it will keep it from tipping over.

I’ve found strapping down top-heavy machines
is a lot of trouble. Anyway you do it just try
your best to think everything through well
beforehand, prepare, and you should be ok.

Strap that sucker to the wall of the truck, and pack furniture and other stuff around it… you will be fine. Well, unless you get into an accident in route – but in that event, I doubt it would matter much if it was laying down or standing up :)

Cheers,

Thanks guys, I assumed it would be fine as long as it stays upright. I plan on putting it in first with the back against the “wall”. I need to clean out the garage before putting the house on the market, I was planning on using a POD and storing the tools and misc. for a month or so but they don’t delivery to the place we’re moving to. So now my plan is to buy a 20’ enclosed trailer load it, store it, complete the move then re-sell it.

Have your say...
