I’ve had my 36-725 for a short time now, but have run into some issues with the wheel.

The wheel lever for the unit seems to have developed a problem that I can’t seem to figure out. From what I recall when I put it together, it seemed to work great. I didn’t move it very far so I don’t know if this happened from the beginning or not.

-Is the wheel lever supposed to stay locked down somehow (i.e. you can lift the saw up on the wheel and it will stay there)? I seem to remember it being able to do that when I first assembled it, but now it won’t.

-I can only wheel the saw in 1 direction, towards the set straight wheels. If I try to reverse it the swivel caster can not clear where it attaches and gets stuck. It’s rather awkward to try to move in this fashion.

Could someone who has the saw possibly post a close up picture of the wheel/pedal (hopefully in both up and down positions) so I can see if something is off? Thanks.

Not sure what would cause your issue, but the lever should lock in position to make saw mobile.

Yes, when you push down on the foot lever the wheel should be locked in the down position. I can also swivel the saw in any direction with the wheel down, so it sounds like you have a problem. Here are some pictures I took of mine:

Here is the wheel in the down position

Here is the wheel in the up position

And finally here is one in the middle of the motion showing the “cam” on the foot pedal

I hope this helps!
