I have this saw with the 4 castors. I would greatly prefer two fixed wheels so I can steer it. Has anyone tried this, as it is too heavy to just flip over and look. Also, I always leave the wheels engaged, because the 20-40 turns to detract them is too annoying as I have to keep moving it to get to the other wheels.

Once I had my PM2000 positioned where I liked it, I’ve never moved it since. I thought the castors were a neat addition, but was not the reason I bought the saw. I know this doesn’t answer your question, but I know what your talking about on the cranking. I think they had to go with a finer tread to be able to lift the weight without too much effort, besides the twirling.
