I’m picking up a grizzly g0490x jointer tomorrow. It has the built in mobile base.

How easy is it to roll this thing onto a truck lift gate? Not sure I’ll have another set of hands to help.

It’s a very heavy machine, but I would think you could get it onto a lift gate by yourself. If you have to roll it across much outside surface I’d bring a couple sheets of plywood to provide a smooth surface. I brought mine home in the back of a Prius. I wouldn’t recommend that, however. Really bad idea, especially if it is your wife’s Prius. :)

Not sure how yours is coming. Mine came in two pieces, bed in one crate and the base in the box. It had to be assembled before moving. My base has a 3 wheel configuration with the single wheel being the pivot to raise and lower the jointer. Ok for moving across the shop floor, but would be a pain to move on a drive of any roughness or grade.

The weight is in the beds and don’t pick the beds from the ends. Best to lift from the underside where the unit bolts to the base. If you can offload the beds to a pickup, you can move it from the pickup to the stand with minimal lifting.

Good luck…

Mine came in two pieces too. Here is my review of assembly and moving it: http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/6106
