I’m shopping for a table saw, and I’m leaning toward the Grizzly 690. It’s in budget, and I have a 220 V outlet; the challenge is that my shop is on the second floor, over my garage. I’m sure they’re wide enough for the machine, but they aren’t wide enough for more than two people to carry something up it.
Grizzly customer service told me that the largest shipping crate is 460 lbs. Even with a shoulder dolly and a strong friend, I’m wary of carrying something that heavy up a flight of stairs.
Have any of you have experience moving a large saw up or down stairs? What sort of disassembly would it take to get it down to pieces ~200 lbs or less?
I want to make sure I have a plan in place before ordering a saw I might not be able to get into my shop.
