Perfect for the 317 pound 10" Jointer/Planer G0635. By myself, I was able to assemble the base and mount the machine in about 30 minutes. My garage floor has rather wide joints, but the "Bear Crawl" navigates over them with ease. I think I actually prefer the "Bear Crawl" mobile base over the Shop Fox.
It is a very heavy duty and easy to maneuver base and at a great price compared to others I have seen.
Great Base, but it didn't fit the machine they said it would. This is the accessory mobile base for 17" Anniversary Bandsaw. But when I got it the arms for the width were too long and I had to cut them for my 18" wide base on the bandsaw. I would have expected a proper fit.
Recently bought this for use with my 180 lb tablesaw. Works great so far and looks as if it will for a long time.
Excellent product. Heartily recommend this if you get a Grizzly. One caveat: Use a 21"x 21" x 3/4" spacer in the unit to allow vibrations to be soaked up and not transmitted to the floor. Really works like a champ.
I bought this for a drill press and it works perfectly. It was easy to assemble and makes it easy to move a heavy machine. It was also the best price of any comparable base and had the heaviest rating.
Overall I'm extremely pleased with this mobile base. The only thing that I would suggest improving is the lifter mechanism needs a tighter tolerance or a welded in bushing. There is some movement in the support posts when locked down due too to much play.
This is the BEST mobile base that you have ever sold, and it was on sale.
It is one rugged piece of equipment!! The wheels have a brake system that is easy to reach and it easy to apply or release.
Recently purchased two. One for my Grizzly bandsaw which needed a mobile base and another for an older Craftsman drill press (large floor model) that had a Delta base. The Grizzly bases are fantastic because of their construction quality which results in stable yet easy to move machines. I cut down the sides slightly for the bandsaw and built a wooden base for the drill press. When you couple the design and quality with a great price, no doubt about 5 stars.
I bought this to use under my G1035 shaper. This base it a little big for the 1035 but I liked the wheels and the wheel locks better than the lighter bases. I cut the base down after getting it and it works great. It was a very simple job to make the base smaller.
Good product and is priced right. I have a slight issue with one wheel dragging that was easily fixed. I have this thing loaded and it rolls easier than my table saw.
To be fair, most are made like this. Too clunky, in my small shop I need all 4 wheels to swivel. I already took my new Grizzly bandsaw off of this thing and replaced with heavy duty casters. This mobile base will be on eBay for sale by the end of the week.
I am very impressed with the quality and sturdiness of this product. It has made moving the equipment in my shop much easier. I bought 3, one for my table saw, jointer and bandsaw
Works great. Packaging sucked and some parts were bent damaged but still useable.
After assembling my Grizzly G0555LX 14" Deluxe Bandsaw on this base I was very happy to see how smooth the entire unit moved around and how stable everything was. This will greatly help my woodworking in a small shop where I can store my bandsaw when not in use and easily pull it out when needed.
I bought this for my Grizzly G0771Z table saw that i'am saving up for. Currently using it for my old craftsman contractor saw and it's great. By the time i have the money saved the grizzly G0771Z should be back in stock.
I purchased the Bear Crawl Mobile Base ahead of the arrival of a Grizzly G0690 table saw. It was my understanding that the base could be assembled around the tool. Without having an "assistant" to help, I used a tall jack to lift the table of the saw alternately front and back and the base slid under the saw fairly effortlessly. I'm very pleased with the sturdiness and the ease with which the base allows me to roll my saw around the shop. Could not be more pleased.
I have a small shop and recently purchased a band saw. Bought the mobile base to allow quick and easy relocation and it works great.
It is stable when locked in place to use the saw and is easy to move.
After a few months of pondering as to which table saw i was going to get, with many factors being looked at during the process, I chose the Grizzly G1023 RL Even though it was going to be stationary, I needed to be able to move it into it's position and have a stable base, so I ordered the Bear Crawl base at the same time. I am very pleased with that decision. I assembled it, using the dimensions of the saw and then took the back and front section apart to wait for the saw's arrival. It is very strong and stable, and because my shop floor is slightly uneven, I was able to adjust the support feet to zero the saw up. I highly recommend this in addition to any heavy piece of shop equipment.
Great base! My table saw has a granite top and a router table attached and it moves beautifully. Excellent buy.
My wife bought this for me as a birthday/anniversary gift. Excellent stand! Some folks have said issues with the bolts or threads, but I found none. It works perfectly with my G0690 saw and makes rolling it around a breeze and locking it into place even better (then getting on your knees and turning a knob!) I like it so much that I want to buy another for my standing drill press! Excellent base Grizzly! God bless!
I have three different brands of mobile bases and this one is by far the best of them all.
I have purchased two of the Bear Crawl bases. One is for a 350 pound bandsaw and the other is for a planer stand. The base is easy to assemble. And can be assembled around a machine (I did this rather than try to lift the bandsaw onto the base.) The bases are easy to move around my less than level shop floor and they are very sturdy and stable. Finally they are are extremely well priced. I will certainly buy more of them when needed.
This is a heavy duty mobile base. It's very stable and rolls very easily. The assembly is straight forward and easy. I use this for my Grizzly G0457 bandsaw.
Solid, very sturdy, fits the bill for my Hybrid Table Saw which weighs over 400 lbs. will be getting a second one for my Bandsaw. Definitely recommend.
Makes it very easy to move heavy saw around and stable when it place with the locks down. Its made it China and some of jamb nuts broke loose when tightening.
Makes my table saw very easy to move around and locks easy
This mobile base is very heavy duty, but it is easy to assemble
and to adjust the stabilizing feet. The casters and power coating
are also of high quality.
This is by far the best heavy mobile base I have seen.
It is well designed in that you don't have to lift the machine to set the brake.
I have on on my heavy commercial shaper with power feeder, and one on my 20" planer.
Both are easy to roll around.
Lets me easily move my band saw around which is very important with my small shop. It is rock steady when locked into place.
This mobile base is built for heavy duty equipment and it works as claimed. My T28000 is supporting my DJ20 jointer and I am very well pleased. The strongest base I have ever used!
I bought this for my table saw .... worked great and very easy to put together
My order was shipped and delivered promptly and the mobile base is excellent and just as advertised.
I bought this mobile base about a month ago and wish I would have purchased it a long time ago. It is so handy and well built. Very solid. I would definitely recommend!
I have had some other mobile bases in the past but this one is the best. It's very heavy duty. Some people have mentioned bad welds but I have no complaints. It went together with no problems and all the welds held together. It's a little wide for my G0555 but it could be modified to fit. Overall, I love it.
When assembling the product, I could not get one of the spring loaded feet to fit into its hole (the sheet metal cap jammed against the side). The hole itself was not perpendicular (looks like bad welding job). The foot would not fit until I ground off one edge (at least 1/8 inch) of the sheet metal cap on the foot. It went together but I assume the bottom of the rubber foot is now not sitting parallel to the floor. Any individual without a power grinder would not have gotten it together; the cylindrical moving part would not fit into the holder assembly.
This mobile base was definitely a plus for my bandsaw. It was everything as advertised. Im extremely pleased with all my purchases from Grizzly.
The Bear Crawl work better than I ever expected. Works great for tight shop and moving equipment around as needed.
All as expected. Delivery on schedule. Instructions clear and unit seems to be well made.
Makes moving the larger machines around in small shop much easier.
love it. only bad thing is had to remove bolts that hold corners, they don't allow the band saws door to open, had to replace with set screws. otherwise very strong unit
I haven't set the base up yet; been waiting for a friend to help me lift the bandsaw up onto it. But I know it will be great like the other Grizzly products I own. ,
Just got my Bear Crawl this past weekend and assembled it. I was quite pleased with the construction of it. No breaking welds like others have reported. Casters seem to be really heavy duty and roll around very well. Haven't used it on the saw yet as it is supposed to be here this week. I would buy another one for sure.
I'm very happy with this product. Assembly was easy and it was handy to be able to build around the tool without lifting the tool completely of the ground and placing in the base.
Is a really nice base with two exceptions. As others have said, be careful tightening the bars because the nuts are lightly tack welded, one broke with very little force. Grizzly did send me a replacement pronto....excellent customer service. Other issue is the side with the swivel wheels is 1/2" higher than the fixed wheel side. I put a tall 15" wide belt sander on it, lean was bad. I had to put 1/2" spacers between the machine and base on the fixed wheel side to level it with the feet up and it sitting on the rollers. It is one of the nicest mobile bases other than that. I would buy another. Recently bought another one of these. Looks like my complaints with my first one have been fixed. The nuts are welded on much better and the base was level from side to side.
Solid quality product. Assembly instructions not entirely clear as some hex head bolts were replaced with capped bolts. Placed on Fox mobile base, but had to modify some of the bolts of the base to provide clearance to open lower door.
Bought this for a Craftsman table saw with legs being 24x29 inches apart. Works great. The spot welded nuts could be higher quality, one stripped out on me.Rolls well.
works good! I had to cut it down on all sides to fit my purpose but it is that adaptable.. Would definitely purchase another if needed!!
I bought this product in 12-17. The unit was easy to put together and I didn't experience some of the issues that others have had with poor welds on nuts and nuts full of paint. I only had one problem with one nut that ended up stripping.
Holds a lot of weight, and easy to move large tools around the shop. I can slide my cabinet saw and 17" bandsaw around the garage with one hand. The feet that drop down to lock the tool in place however are very floppy. Too much play in the mechanism. The tool won't slide around the floor but it will rock back and forth a half inch or so while using it. Doesn't sound like much but it would be better if it didn't.
the box came in damaged and pieces missing but customer service was very helpful in replacing the parts. Once together it performed better than expected.
Grizzly produces a great product and a good company.
buying experience was fast and easy ,base looks well made, i had to cut two sides a few inches shorter for best fit, it took a little work to get it under my 325 lb. band saw. time will tell how good it really is. my experience with grizzly has always been great. good products at a fair price and great customer service
I put this under my Jointer and really like the way it handles the floor mats I have in the shop. It rolls off the 3/4 in. mats to the concert floor and back easily. (well as easily as any 600lb machine will move.) Ill be getting another one to go under my Shop Fox shaper.
Works, but the feet come down independently and do not have much travel. Also the weight of the machine is always on the rear casters so for heavy machines it's not too stable. The ground clearance of the feet when retracted can be an issue if your floor is not totally clean and level.
So much easier on my back when I need to move a heavy piece of my equipment around. I bought 3 and will buy more as I add to my equipment setup
This mobile base makes working in my two car garage so much easier. Foot-operated levers are the way to go. I can't really think of a way to even improve this item.
Strong frame and easy to move the saw with this base. Smooth rolling and locks in place
Stand really rolls quite easy. One of the nuts broke loose from its weld. Should stay together with remaining. Hope others don't fsisl
I bought this to use on the G0833P. The mobile base is easy to put together and rolls smoothly on the floor. The downside is that I cannot seem to get the saw top level by using the adjustment feet. It appears I will have to use shims between the saw and the base to fix this. Overall it's a good value, however I would have gladly paid more for more adjustability, so that you could level the equipment.
Nice heavy duty, rolls smoothly. Little bit of a challenge to put together by yourself but manageable. A must for small shops!
Sturdy and easy to put together. Good quality finish and it makes the saw so mobile - but this does not make it unsteady in use. Just drop down the lift wheels and it is rock steady. I use it more than my table saw now.
I have routinely used homemade bases for my shop tools u ntill I purchased a G1023FLIGHT table saw from Grizzly. This saw weighs 510lbs the base makes moving the saw a breeze
Welding needs improvement. Some joints, nuts, and fittings need grinding to remove sloppy welds in order to function and fit properly. Overall it works well.
Purchased for 6x89 belt sander ,it moves easy ,and stays where you want it to when you push levers down.Can't go wrong with this product! Excellent mobile base.
My Grizzly table saw has been the center of attention in my shop for years. Too difficult to move... until now.
The Bear Crawl base is an awesome product, but there are some manufacturing issues that need some attention.
1) Welds are at best amateur.
Many were incomplete.
2) Parts are not welded together square.
One swivel wheel mount is angled differently than the other.
One stationary wheel mount is welded greater than 90 degrees.
Aside from the poor welding the base is well designed and works perfectly. I like the fact it as toe flips for the rubber feet. Much easier than screwing it up or down whenever you want to move or use the machine.
Great quality and easy to fallow instructions. Now my band saw is easy to move from one place to another and that is what I needed.
I bought this mobile base about a month ago it is the best 1 that I have ever owned I have several the T28000 Bear Crawl is the Best!!!!
Packaged well but shipping UPS with the weight outer box beat up but inner box intact. The return roller axle pin had fallen inside roller and had to disassemble top, remove roller and fish out the pin. Not the sturdiest planer on the market but seems to work fine.
Very sturdy base and easy to put together whether your saw is already together or not!
Easy to adjust and works with a lot of different machines!! v
Works well, rolls easily. Easy to assemble. The reason I only gave it 3 stars is that the black powder coating got inside the nuts that the bolts for the fixed wheels go into. I thought the bolts would still thread into the nuts and the powder coat would just come off. Well it didn't, it actually stripped the bolt. I had to buy a tap and tap out the nuts to remove the powder coat.
price dropped $20,00 before I received them. How about a rebate of $20. ??
We bought this for our son and he loves it. Fits the saw just right and makes it very moveable.
i bought the shop fox base for my 14" band saw and i find it difficult to maneuver the machine around the casters do not want to cooperate . so when i bought my g1023 table saw i decided to try grizzly's bear crawl and it a lot easier to move the table saw around my basement than the other base i have. i only wish non caster wheels were a little higher so i could level the machine using the posts instead of shimming the cabinet base.
Makes it very easy for me to move so I can sweep up my shop and park the vehicles in.
Not until you get your Chinese Manufacture to make it without rust of internal eight of the major parts and to pack it in a real shipping carton so the outside of the painted parts are not dented, paint removed, etc. during shipping!!!!
Any questions call me at 607-723-3512 ext. 458
Must take care not to over-torque the bolts (16 of them) that adjust the size of the base. Each nut is fastened to the frame with two spot welds that can break loose (two nuts in my case) if the bolts are torqued up to what you might think is an appropriate level.
great base for planer makes it very easy to move around
Bought this item and I am so glad I did, it is worth its weight in gold.
I purchased two of these several weeks ago for the 1023 tablesaw and 55lx bandsaw. After a very simple cut on two of the heavy duty runners, they fit snug and perfect on both bases. Super easy and stable mobility with pop down rubber feet controlled by stepping on them (no bending down). Highly recommended.
This product was great for the price. I needed to cut two of the metal bars to shorten the side length. It took me about 30 minutes to assemble everything. Now my jointer rolls around with ease.
I don't know how I have managed my tablesaw in the garage for all these years without one. This thing is amazing.
Ordered for Contractor style table saw, works great, could easily handle larger tasks.
I replaced an expensive mobile base I purchased with this grizzly mobile base. Wow what a difference, it is so much better built than base I purchased from the Woodcraft store. My prior base was harder to put together and although it was supposed to be rated for the weight of my machine the wheels were bending and flexing out of shape and made moving my machine difficult. Not so with this one. This one was well worth the money.
Seemed like the mobile base was going to work nicely, but had a crookedly-welded corner piece that held one caster off the ground. Asked for a replacement part, but that couldn't be provided. Was supposed to get replacement package, but was given a refund instead.
Best mobile base I have bought. Heavy duty and rolls smoothly. Hope to get another while they are still on sale.
I bought this a little over a month ago to go with the 14" anniversary edition band saw. Like one other person stated one of the cons to this piece are the nuts welded to the corner brackets. As I was tightening one of the bolts for the rail one of the weld points broke. Be very careful or you are going to pulling out your welder. I did have to run the two adjustable feet all the up in order for it roll around without dragging in the up position. The biggest pro that I can point out is how easily, and quickly, the assembly is. You can, if even marginally mechanically inclined, put this together without the instructions. Even with the locking rail nut issue I am extremely happy with this base unit.
Great product easy to assemble. I modified the lengths of two of the spacer bars for a perfect fit with the 14" Grizzly bandsaw and am very pleased. I have a number of mobile bases from other suppliers and this one is the best!
I bought this to put under my Powermatic edge sander. Here are my observations regarding its assembly and use:
1) The edge sander I used this under is now VERY easy to move. Much more so than when I had a home made, wood base (with good casters), which raised the unit up several inches.
2) The base design raises the tool only enough to allow the wheels to roll freely, so it doesnt raise the center of gravity a great deal.
3) The locking mechanism is very easy to engage and disengage.
4) The base was easy to assemble and could be figured out without directions. The hardest thing to figure out would be the locking mechanism.
1) BE VERY CAREFUL tightening the sixteen (16) short bolts that hold the square tubing in the four corner pieces. They are spot welded and it takes very little pressure to break them loose.
Fortunately, it doesnt take much pressure to lock the tubes to the corner pieces. Too, the tubes fit into larger tubes and most the abuse they would suffer is downward pressure, rather than lateral or horizontal.
1) I bought a cheap EVOLUTION carbide tooth metal cut off saw a while back. It made quick work of shortening square tubing that slide into the corners, to get a fairly tight fit around the base.
2) The non-swiveling wheels are mounted so they roll parallel to the base to which they attach. Because of that,
attention must be given to which corners sections longer or shorter tubes are mounted in.
One way, my edge sander must be rolled with wide section to the right and left and could not be rolled through the four foot wide shop door. If set on the base the other way, it will fit and should be more stable during moves.
3) I had to run the two locking mechanisms all the way in to get them to raise the unit as little as possible. You only need to raise the wheels about 1/8, or less, to to stop the base from moving around.
4) This is one of four commercial mobile bases in my shop [out of 16 total]. One of the two Grizzly bases is built into my 8" spiral jointer and its great too. This one seems comparable to the others for ease of use and mobility. It has the advantage over the others in that it can be cut down for a tight fit. I, definitely, would buy it again.
I have had multiple mobile bases--- None have worked like the Bear Crawl. These work GREAT! five star! I can move my 600# milling machine and stand with minimal effort.
I have limited shop space and have to keep my Delta table saw rolled out of the way. This base seems to handle the weigh effortlessly. The saw is too heavy to for just me to pick up. So I had to assemble it in place.. It was a bit of a hassle to assemble under the saw while I had it up on blacks. But, not bad. I'm more than happy!
I ordered this to replace a Shop Fox mobile base for my Grizzly G0513X2BF. It is head and shoulders better than the Shop Fox! I wish it had been released about a month earlier so I could have saved some time, pain, and money. The wheels roll like butter and spin effortlessly. The foot levers are such a great improvement over what I was using and the overall fit and finish is really nice. I did have to cut down two cross bars to get it to fit my bandsaw, but it was easy cuts and best of all the base is level. I couldn't be happier! I literally threw the Shop Fox in the trash because that's where it belongs. Spend the extra money and buy this one!
I waited over 2 months to receive this item, then after I assembled it, I found it had a faulty weld. I'll repair it myself, as I don't want to waste my time sending it back to receive another one. Need better quality control, I can't say I wouldn't recommend this, but I'm not happy. Don't you respond to your customers anymore?
To put it simply, this is the best mobile base I've ever used. The assembly is far quicker and simpler, everything fits well, and the steel is appropriately thick enough to support the heaviest machines. To make mine fit my jointer base better I should have shortened two of the cross bars, however, due to the large mounting surface plates there is enough support such that shortening wasn't even necessary. I wish the Bear Crawl existed at the time I bought a different brand base for my table saw. Outstanding!
I bought this for my new Grizzly 1023 table saw. Actually I am pleased with it. At 1200pds it has more capacity than it's Shop Fox and is a better value at $69. The rubber wheels roll easily across concrete. I really like the toe flip lifting levers. I have to move my saw frequently and it's a big convenience to easily operate the lifting levers with my feet. The only reason I downgraded it was because of a faulty weld on one of the nuts used to attach the steel bars. When I tightened the bolt down to the bar the welded nut broke free. I should have sent it back but I decided I could probably fix it myself. I saw a similar review with the same problem. Says something about quality control. I'd recommend it with caution.
Bought this for a recent purchase of a G0690. I can almost push my table saw around with one finger. The foot pads lock the saw in position quickly. This is the way to go rather than the standard mobile base! Plus I think it is a little cheaper!
It's a good mobile. Are as far as moving around. However, due to the size of the rear casters, it has a pretty substantial lean when you put it in place. You will have to do some shimming if your trying to fit it to an outfeed table for a table saw. Other than that good product. Strong
Purchased 2 originally and they worked great. A small modification for a smaller base required only shortening the base extensions. They worked so well I purchased two more. Solved small work shop tool relocation issues. Great product
My Sawstop cabinet saw was too heavy for my previous base. This works perfectly.
Great product, well built and it functions very well.
Bought this to help move my table saw in a 1 car garage. It went together easily. Now I can actually get around in the shop.
I have several mobile bases for my workshop tools and this is one of the best. Very smooth and quite due to the rubber tires, and I love the cam lock down instead of the screw type.
These wheeled bases allowed me to be able to move my heavy tools around my garage shop without help. Very easy to assemble and easy to use.
I like the feature change of the flip levers to raise and lower the mobile base.
Bought the Bear Crawl Mobile Base a week ago. Installed it on my 1955 Delta Unisaw. This is a very heavy machine and I can move it around with ease using this mobile base. The base is very heavy duty.
I love the way this base allows me to wheel my shaper around the shop, but, the wheels and the locks do stick out more on the sides than I realized...about 4" on each side beyond the shaper stand. Other than that, no complaints.
Works great, helps me free up room in my small shop.
Years ago, I bought a similar base for my table saw, and wondered why I waited so long to make my saw mobile. Recently, I had to rearrange some stuff in my garage and needed another base for my "tipsy" drill press (1956 vintage). This Bear Crawl base arrived (after a long wait on backorder) and I put it together easily. Perfect fit, and this base allows me to move the drill press with two fingers.
Just received this product and am well pleased. Has a great design and rolls very easily with my radial arm saw. The leg extensions were not long enough for my radial arm saw, which has an unusually wide stance, but I found some longer tubing and put them in and it works great. Took several months to get it, but it was worth the wait.
Lots of assembly ... large footprint that can become a trip hazard. Works well but could not be as stable if it is subject to vibrations. Would upgrade the locking feet.
Much improved from the original. Hopefully the new wheels are durable. Not happy with the 3 month shipping delay
This product was easy to assemble and so far has worked as advertised. It rolls over smooth concrete floors easily and with a touch of your toe goes from mobile to stationary. Worth the 4 month wait in getting it delivered.
