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
5/ 5stars

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!
5/ 5stars

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
5/ 5stars

It works!
4/ 5stars

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!

Works great

I bought one it's the best one I've ever had ordered 2 more

Superb Mobile Base!
5/ 5stars

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!

WAITED OVER 2 MONTHS AND FAULTY WELD
3/ 5stars

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
5/ 5stars

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!

Could be a 5 star but....
3/ 5stars

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.

Very good mobile base
5/ 5stars

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
4/ 5stars

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
5/ 5stars

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

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

Out of the way.
5/ 5stars

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.

5/ 5stars

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
5/ 5stars

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.

Well Built.
5/ 5stars

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

5/ 5stars

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.

Heavy Duty
5/ 5stars

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
5/ 5stars

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

Great product
5/ 5stars

Just what I needed
5/ 5stars

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.

Great mobile base
5/ 5stars

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
5/ 5stars

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.

5/ 5stars

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

Heavy duty and well designed
5/ 5stars

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.

5/ 5stars

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