I have to move my table saw about 500 miles. It is a delta hybrid saw. My question is can i lay it on its back in the back of my pickup or am I better off moving it upright in a trailer? I am trying to get away with not bringing the trailer. I have a ford ranger with a topper on it, so I think the only way to get it in the bed would be to lay it down. Will laying it down cause any damage to the internal parts? Thanks for any advice.

you should be able to lay it on it’s back without a problem.

that said – you would want to take the belt off the motor pully, and put some padding between the motor and saw so that it will not bounce around. wrap it all with a moving blanket so that it will not move while driving, and you should be good to go. I moved a bandsaw and a table saw that way.
