Question Table Saw mobile base suggestions

I could move my old table saw around at will with no problem to use it and then slide it back out of the way. Recently I was very fortunate to obtain a very large, very heavy table saw from one of the members here. I am looking for mobility solutions. It's base is the typical fixed leg contractor's saw, 10 inch. Any suggestions or thoughts? Thanks in advance, Dave

Dave, I like my HTC mobile bases. They are inexpensive and work well.

Hi Mike, Thanks for the suggestion of the HTC base. One thing I notice about these bases, and all platform type units for that matter, is that getting the table saw up and on them would take some doing....I do like the fact that they don't raise the working height by much. I am looking at the HTC2000 that adjusts up to 36" x 36". I should have had this figured out before I put the saw back together.....

+1 on HTC. I also have Shop Fox under my planer, and am quite pleased with it as well.

Dave I also use the HTC 2000 under my old Grizzly saw. My saw is pretty heavy with the cast iron wings but my son and a friend lifted it while I slid the base under it.

Where there's a Willis there's a way!

Dave, I'm not sure how big the footprint of your saw is or how heavy it is but if you're interested in the Shop Fox heavy duty base (holds 700 Lbs, go from roughly 20"x20" to almost 30"x30") Grizzly has it on sale for under $60. D2057A Heavy-Duty Mobile Base. I do not have this base but i'm considering it for a band saw.

I have the Grizzly D2057A and the directions show how to build the stand underneath the saw and you lift on side at a time as you build it. So no lifting the saw up all at once. You could use their directions on any type of mobile base, just download the instructions from Grizzly's WEB Site.
