    My order was shipped and delivered promptly and the mobile base is excellent and just as advertised.

    Thanks

    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!

    Works perfect so far 2/17/2018

    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.

    Assembly issues 2/17/2018

    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.

    Excellent product. 2/16/2018

    This mobile base was definitely a plus for my bandsaw. It was everything as advertised. I’m extremely pleased with all my purchases from Grizzly.

    2/14/2018

    The Bear Crawl work better than I ever expected. Works great for tight shop and moving equipment around as needed.

    Very good, makes heavy machines portable in small shop 2/8/2018

    Makes moving the larger machines around in small shop much easier.

    A good value 2/7/2018

    Bear claw 2/7/2018

    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

    James
    It arrived as promised 2/1/2018

    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.

    Great product 1/28/2018

    Good Product and good price. 1/27/2018

    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.

    1/26/2018

    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.

    David B
    1/22/2018

    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.

    Great product and easy to put together 1/21/2018

    Bryan S
    Works great 1/20/2018

    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.

    1/20/2018

    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!!

    Gary H
    1/20/2018

    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.

    Alan B
    Wobbly feet, sturdy frame 1/20/2018

    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.

    worth the money 1/19/2018

    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.

    Great base for my shop with limited space! 1/19/2018

    Grizzly produces a great product and a good company.

    1/19/2018

    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

    good mobile base 1/19/2018

    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 1/19/2018

    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.

    Great Item 1/19/2018

    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

    Nicholas G
    Best base for the money 1/19/2018

    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.

    Rick K
    Strong frame 1/19/2018

    Strong frame and easy to move the saw with this base. Smooth rolling and locks in place

    12/30/2017

    Stand really rolls quite easy. One of the nuts broke loose from its weld. Should stay together with remaining. Hope others don't fsisl

    Robert P
    Not bad, could use some improvement 12/21/2017

    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.

    Mitchell G
    Great product 12/17/2017

    Nice heavy duty, rolls smoothly. Little bit of a challenge to put together by yourself but manageable. A must for small shops!

    Very Sturdy 12/15/2017

    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.

    best Mobil base I have ever had 12/15/2017

    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

    Darren S
    12/10/2017

    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.

    Great product 12/10/2017

    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.

    Peter J
    Great Product, but needs some tweeks 12/9/2017

    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.




    Dave H
    12/9/2017

    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.

    11/27/2017

    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.

    Bought with the G0833p 11/25/2017

    Very sturdy base and easy to put together whether your saw is already together or not!

    Good Product 11/21/2017

    Easy to adjust and works with a lot of different machines!! v

    Patrick D
    Good Product 11/16/2017

    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. ??

    Thanks, Fredric

    11/10/2017

    We bought this for our son and he loves it. Fits the saw just right and makes it very moveable.

    Perfect! 11/9/2017

    11/9/2017

    works perfectly with my new cabinet saw. easy to assemble.

    Better than the shop fox 11/9/2017

    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.

    Works great. A must for small shops. 11/8/2017

    Makes it very easy for me to move so I can sweep up my shop and park the vehicles in.

    11/5/2017

    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

    Joe Battaglia

    Substantial, beefy mobile base that functions well. 11/3/2017

    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.

    very good product 10/31/2017

    great base for planer makes it very easy to move around

    10/28/2017

    Very nice product. I will be buying more for my other machines.

    Outstanding 10/27/2017

    Bought this item and I am so glad I did, it is worth its weight in gold.

    Simple mobility! 10/26/2017

    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.

    Works Great 10/21/2017

    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.

    Aaron M
    Awesome! 10/13/2017

    I don't know how I have managed my tablesaw in the garage for all these years without one. This thing is amazing.

    Excellent 10/12/2017

    Ordered for Contractor style table saw, works great, could easily handle larger tasks.

    Excellent Mobile Base, Well constructed 10/11/2017

    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.

    10/9/2017

    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.

    Robbie H
    Love it 10/8/2017

    Best mobile base I have bought. Heavy duty and rolls smoothly. Hope to get another while they are still on sale.

    Eric E
    Nice base 9/29/2017

    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.

    9/21/2017

    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!

    Grizzly Mobile Bases Make Moving Even Top Heavy Equipment Easy 9/2/2017

    I bought this to put under my Powermatic edge sander. Here are my observations regarding its assembly and use:

    PRO’s:

    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 doesn’t 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.

    CONS:

    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 doesn’t 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.

    SIDE NOTES:

    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.

    THE BEST! 8/28/2017

    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.

    Great production 8/27/2017

    It works! 8/26/2017

    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!

    Superb Mobile Base! 8/22/2017

    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!

    CLIFFORD J
    WAITED OVER 2 MONTHS AND FAULTY WELD 8/22/2017

    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?

    Best of the three I own 8/17/2017

    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!

    David H
    Could be a 5 star but.... 8/16/2017

    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.

    William M
    Very good mobile base 8/16/2017

    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!

    Good mobile base 8/16/2017

    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 two more 8/11/2017

    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

    NICE UNIT 8/10/2017

    8/10/2017

    My Sawstop cabinet saw was too heavy for my previous base. This works perfectly.

    Received warranted product 8/10/2017

    Great product, well built and it functions very well.

    Works great makes moving my Grizzly band saw a breeze 8/6/2017

    Out of the way. 8/5/2017

    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.

    8/4/2017

    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.

    Liked it so much I bought 2 more 8/4/2017

    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.

    Glen C
    Well Built. 8/4/2017

    I like the feature change of the flip levers to raise and lower the mobile base.

    8/4/2017

    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.

    Jim M
    Heavy Duty 8/4/2017

    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.

    Just what I needed 8/2/2017

    Works great, helps me free up room in my small shop.

    Great product 8/2/2017

    Just what I needed 7/29/2017

    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.

    Wayne H
    Great mobile base 7/26/2017

    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.

    works well 7/26/2017

    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.

    7/26/2017

    Much improved from the original. Hopefully the new wheels are durable. Not happy with the 3 month shipping delay

    Heavy duty and well designed 7/26/2017

    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.

    7/26/2017

    Product was back ordered for quite awhile but was worth the wait, I purfure the lift lever on side.
