These bases are great for my small shop. I must move my machines out of the way after I use them. The bases work well.
I've owned 4 of these bases over time, the first one about 20 yrs ago. Sturdy and well built, but the caster tires do not hold up well. The rubber delaminates from the core and falls off in large chunks, leaving a pretty useless caster. Some last a few years, others have failed almost immediately. When I tried the Shop Fox factory replacement casters, they fell apart within a week of installation. The machines I'm using these for are heavy, but none exceeds the 700 lb. weight capacity. I finally found one-piece wheels from a different source that with a little modification I was able to retrofit in place of the originals. I do recommend the stand overall, but be aware that you may have to find a workaround for the wheel longevity issue.
Full disclosure: My last attempt at using Grizzly's recommended replacement caster was about 2 yrs ago. If the quality has improved since then, I hope their staff will ring in with an update.
I bought this to replace the stock mobile base that came with my (non-Grizzly) table saw. This is far superior to the old one: much more rugged, much sturdier. I like it, and the price was right.
It is HD and well made. As you get older, I'd design an easier way to turn handles to make it easier. Other than that, I enjoy it!
clear instructions for assembly. specific instructions for assembly under a machine that is too heavy to lift and place on an already assembled base. no missing parts.
Building new shop in garage. Mobile base has allowed me to easily move Grizzly table saw to various locations.
Bought this to put under a G1023RL. It went together OK. I used two sided tape to hold the lock washer to the nut for the inside bolts on the fixed casters. I moved the saw down into the basement and was able to attach the base with the swivel casters already attached, then tip it upright.
This is a great addition to my G1023 table saw. My shop is small and I need to be able to move equipment around. I can easily manipulate the 500 pound saw. I also installed this product my self without any problems.
I put this base on my new Grizzly table saw and I love it. It rolls very smooth assembly was very easy. I will be changing the stationary casters to a swivel type to make it easier to move around my small shop. Great product. Highly recommend it.
The base is sturdy, but cannot be adjusted small enough in one direction to fit the Grizzly G0555 bandsaw that I bought with it. As a result the bandsaw slides around inside the Mobile Base tray. I cut a spacer block from a piece of 2x4 to fill the gap and stop the sliding. If I had a change to make, it would be to use foot peddles to lock the unit to the floor rather than the star-knob jacks.
I have this and an extension on the G0691 cabinet saw and its a definite need for small to medium size shop. Only con for me is with the extension its hard to turn the machine.
The stand is well built, make sure to pay attention to the dimensions.
It worked but the configuration is wrong for maximum stabilization for the 17 bandsaw. I set it up, Im sure the way everyone who buys this would, since the saw has a door that needs to open to change the blade, the casters need to be configured appropriately. I added a 2 1/4 piece of wood to space out the base to clear the door. Grizzly should make the saw footprint larger on the door side to make these two items work together without having to Mickey Mouse it. It works but... Mickey moused.
This is the second mobile base that I have purchased from Grizzly. I purchased the first one for my band saw, and even though I do not move it around very often, it sure is a work saver. I purchased the second one for a drum sander that I am still waiting to take delivery of. They are a nice unit, that is more than sturdy enough for what I have used them for, and I will probably buy another one, when I upgrade my table saw sometime in the future.
This mobile base is the best way to maximize my shop floor space. I have all my large woodworking tools on them.
Put mine together this last weekend, a huge number of nuts and bolts. Takes quite a bit of time but is rock solid. My only real complaint is the knobs you use to stabilize it cannot be turned by hand. I had to use a very large channel lock to adjust them. I can only hope in time they will begin to loosen up. Meanwhile I have to figure out a better way to adjust these knobs. If someone has come up with an easier way to adjust these knobs I would love to hear what it is. Thanks
Update: I returned the unit and bought the Grizzly T28000. HUGE difference, easier to put together and so much easier to move my band saw around. Better wheels all the way around and the flip lever to stabilize is an ease to use. MUCH better purchase at a better price. I am extremely happy with this unit!
Should have bought this years ago. Easy to assemble. instructions for assembly well written. I'd buy it again, only sooner....
I got this for my new Grizzly table saw. My shop is small ( 12x12 ) and I needed the ability to move the saw within the space. This does the job well.
I have a rough garage floor and this base doesn't work very well on it. If you have a smooth floor this would probably work very well.
Works like most wheeled carriers do. Wish it had stabilizing feet on the stationary wheel side for uneven shop floor.
I bought this product a month ago and it was everything I hoped it would be. It was easy to assemble, fit my old but extremely heavy Delta contractors saw perfectly. There are great adjustment capabilities with this mobile base, and it rolls very easily and feels very stable while doing so. Great product overall. I Also love the magnetic stops that can anchor the base where ever you put it.
slight problem with lower door for blade storage on saw. the hex bolts securing base are sol long they interfere with opening this lower door.
I don't think I am a fan of having a fixed wheel, especially with the extension. It is impossible to move around the shop being so long with a fixed wheel.
Bought the base for the 0513 bandsaw. I got the base in advance so I could have it ready when the saw came to help move it into the shop. Of course the seven year old in me, so excited about getting the band saw didn't think about the fact that the saw cabinet had doors on it. Those doors hit the bolts on the base and the door wouldn't open all the way. I put the wheels on in the wrong orientation also and have yet to fix that. Hard to move the saw the way I did it. Also the two pads that stop the base from moving around don't seem to do that. I'm betting it's something I did wrong.
So it's a good base and I recommend it. Just think about how your tool should be mounted on it and you'll be ahead of the game there. None of these issues are the base.
Great item! Went together quick, easy,everything fit perfectly.
Very well manufactored. Heavy duty base that works great.
Inadvertently duplicated my order. Called within 24 hours of placing the order told I could not cancel and there was to be a 15% restocking charge even if the item was returned in the unopened packaging.
I have no problem to pay for shipping both in and outbound but a restocking charge !!!!
The Mobile Base makes life good Get it and you won't be disappointed
Great product that came with all the hard wear. Unlike the table saw I bought from Grizzly. Did I mention that I still haven't received the back ordered bolts. I'll give you another 2 months to figure it out. People at Grizzly are a bit slow.
I purchased this for my table saw, and I love it. I have a small shop space, and this base makes it very easy to move my saw around as needed. It was easy to install by myself under the saw with a little ingenuity. It was frustrating trying to thread the lock nut backward onto the bolt, as the manual instructs. I could not get it to work, so I pulled up the item on the Grizzly site and searched the reviews to see if anyone else had the same issue. Sure enough, another reviewer instructed to thread the lock nut on the normal way first to establish threads in the nylon, then remove it, and thread it on backward. Worked like a charm! Maybe this is common knowledge, but I was unaware of the method. If I hadn't already purchased a different base for my band saw, I would buy another one of these for it.
Needed them and Grizzly is the best place to get them. Bought 2.
Bought this for my G1023RLX TS. Works great. I can roll my TS anywhere in my shop without much effort.
You have to cut it down to make it fit in some situations even though it comes up as compatible, but it seems well built.
I bought this for the G0690 saw. It rolls the heavy saw around my shop surprisingly well. I was able to build it around my saw as the directions state, without having to pick the saw up and placing it in the base. I did however, have to cut about an inch off of one of the side rails to make a tight fit around my saw. Not a big deal. I would purchase this base again
Seem well-made, especially for the price. I mean they're not inexpensive but neither is the equipment I'm setting on them. You generally get what you pay for and Grizzly has always given me good value. I like the secure size adjustment method also. This makes about eight I have purchased over the years and all have held up well.
Very rugged, but easy to assemble and rolls smoothly across the floor.
Great base for any saw you have. My only minor gripe is that one set of wheels is static in direction which you have to decide which way to orient at assembly. Would be nice to have rotating casters on all four so I can more easily get it around the shop since its not a one direction motion from where it is stored to where it is used.
I bought this product to go with my Grizzly saw and it fits perfectly. The instructions were complete and understandable. Went together smoothly and works great.
Great value on a heavy duty mobile base. It was easy to modify to a narrower base for a band-saw and it is very stable!!
Purchased this along with a Grizzly 16" Bandsaw. Easy assembly and appears to be well made. Only issue is that I cant open the bottom door completely because of interference with the wheel support. Need to adjust the base wider and re-position the saw if possible. If not, just willing to live with limited access to the "spare blade" stoage compartment
Love the ease that we can move our new machine around the garage on wheels.
Concept and materials are first rate. Well done. However location of bolts and clarity of assembly instructions rates a 3.
I purchased 2 of these mobile bases for my drill press and jointer.
Easy to assemble and setup.
Other vendors offer their mobile base with free delivery option.
I wish Grizzly can provide free delivery as well for their products.
Great accessory to my new band saw. Easy assembly with good clear instructions. Well built.
A great product for the money, it needs to be sized for a perfect fit but now I know that it will work on other tools in my shop I plan to order one or two more.
This is the 4th one I've bought and still love them, just wish I had bought another one at the sale price! :-(
Purchased a couple of these bases and they worked out very well. Only problem was trying to install locking nuts backwards on bolts. Had to screw on the normal way, remove and reverse orientation. This created a thread thru the nylon portion of nuts enabling installation of lock nut.
Provides excellent stability as well as mobility for my router table. Easy assembly.
Got this week's back. Our shop floor is cracking and not level and in places it's hard to move. Solid mobile base and some adjusting to.fit the machine snug. The stops work well so the base won't roll.
I bought this a 2 month ago, haven't put it together , yet , I bought one last year and it works great. make it so much easier to move things around
Easy assembly. Does what it says it does. Smooth rolling and handles a large tool well.
Bought this for my new table saw and it sure makes it so much easier to move it around. Very stable. No wobbling.
Serves my G0771Z quite well. Don't go for the cheaper ones on other sites, they truly are 'lesser' quality and capability. The Fox is strong and well made. Your equipment investment deserves it!
I have a rather small, albeit comfortable, shop so major machines like my new table saw need to be mobile if I'm going to get the most out of my shop. This base was easy to assemble and allows me to move an almost 500 lb saw easily, yet it stays put when I need it to.
Heavy duty base that adjustable. perfect for my band saw.
I purchased the G0690 cabinet saw a couple of months ago. I went with the ShopFox mobile base for my unit which has worked out great. Installation was a bit challenging for some of the bolts as the space provided for them was very tight. Overall, I'm pleased with the product and would recommend it.
It does exactly what its supposed to and makes my bandsaw mobile. Only downside was that I had to cut down two of the pieces to make it a tight fit on my bandsaws base.
I purchased this to set my G1023RL tablesaw on and I can say that it works great and it doesn't raise the height but about 1/2" and is real stable and I am going to purchase more of these for other tools.
Very strong and stable base. 4 swivel casters would be better than just two. No complaints.
Needed to adapt to a much smaller shop space. Not wanting to downsize to a smaller tablesaw and bandsaw required making them mobile so I could continue to use them. Being able to move them made this possible. The base is well made and quiet sturdy. You'll be pleased with it.
I bought this mobile base and it works perfect. I would buy again and recommend this item.
As compared to others, I preferred the D2057A design; however I was disappointed in the workmanship. I was able to assemble the product and put it into use. The mobility offered by this product, for the price, is well worth the investment.
I bought this to get a chop/slider saw off of my work bench. Mobile Base is is sturdy. This gives me the opportunity to move the saw out of the way while not using it. Move it in place, lock it down to the floor and use the saw. When done, move the saw back out of the way. Just what I needed in my Man Cave.
This is well worth the investment, with a few touch-ups... I bought a pair, immediately took out the M8-1.25 cap bolts for the rails, and replaced them with good, quality stainless steel, cup point socket set screws (M8-1.25 16mm) which left, for me, the right amount of height to still use the supplied nylock nuts. I also upgraded the casters to higher quality, same-size bearing poly casters with a higher weight rating (I saved the supplied casters for other projects - they're fine, but the new ones make my heavier machines roll around like butter!). Lastly, I made sure to try-fit my machine bases, scribe matching hole locations to the support plates and then drilling them out with a step-bit. Do NOT just set your base on the roller base and go.... make sure they are securely fastened together. THIS IS NOT for a machine that needs to be kept on a precise level (lathe, mill, higher-end cabinet table saw, etc) as none of this type of bases (that anyone makes) can provide that type of support -
It looks like a good base but all the threaded holes had to be tapped out because of the welding job by the threads. To much heat. The manufacturer should be told about this problem.
I also ordered two catalogs that haven't arrived, is anyone home there?
This is a great heavy duty roller stand with low profile wheels. Well contructed and adjustable. Would recommend.
I have had this mobile bast for a month and it works really good under the 300+ lb band saw.
Do not buy this base. The base is not a great fit for the G0833P. The knobs that turn are almost impossible to turn and do not allow for the base to stay in place. The holes that you insert the feet into required me to drill out excess metal imperfections to even get the feet in the slots. And why are we putting lock nuts on a bolt upside down? That is just not necessary to create a box for this thing to ride around in.
Its a great base, no concerns at all. Does what its suppsed to do.
Easy to assemble, works great. It is now simple and easy to move table saw around.
Very strong base ..well built and designed.... compared to a big box store one I had bought ...Bought to put my new 1023 saw on and very happy with it .. a bit tricky to put together around the saw base but do-able .. I did it by myself..Id have this base on all my machines !
There is a design flaw that Grizzly knows of and doesn't tell the customer. When the bandsaw is placed onto this base, the base is too deep to allow the bottom door to open. When I called, they knew about it and just didn't bother to either fix the issue or warn us that the saw must sit on a piece of plywood to be raised to an adequate height for proper operation. Lazy and inconsiderate of the customer, who has to lift a 350 pound saw off the base to correct the issue.
Reccomend a different way to lift The screws are hard to turn and i have to get on my knees to resch.
This is a great mobile base. The only thing that I would have liked , is for there be a way to raise and lower the wheels.
The base went together easy. I was able to fit it to my table saw with ease. Works great!!
It took a little while to thread the lock nuts on backwards, but what a great mobile base. I'm going to get one for my drill press now.
Bought two and assembling them is a real pain (way more than others that I've done). Like many of the other reviews, I found that the stops do not work well and putting the nylon nuts on the bolts backward is very difficult and time consuming. The casters do not swivel very well at all. A few of the corner supports were bent and had trouble threading some bolts. Not a good fit for the G0833P nor the G0555.
Good enough for me, however the magnets the hold up the two legs while moving are not strong enough.
It works pretty well for what it designed to do. I'm not sure what it's missing but I feel like it's missing something. I do wish that it had a pedal to raise/lower its load. Assembly was a pain in the rear because I had to assemble it around an already assembled saw. It doesn't "fit" perfectly around my G0833P, either.
It would be much better if all the wheels could turn instead of just the front two. Also, the assembly instructions requires that elastic stop nuts be put on screws backwards. That is very hard to do. Definitely a crappy way to lock the frame together. Otherwise it appears to be sturdy.
Some assembly required, batteries not included, void where prohibited, must purchase to play. This is a great mobil base for my old heavy 8" jointer. My pet Tyrannosaurus Rex wants a pair of these for Xmas!!! I've bought 3 of these to date, 2 of them are the super heavy duty and they all do the job moving heavy cast iron machines around the shop.
This mobile base will be helpful in positioning the saw.
I needed to shorten the bolts on the bandsaws bottom door side to allow to fully open the door. Other wise very happy with the unit.
Got this as an accessory for a new G0778 bandsaw. To make it fit, I had to cut two bars, so I wouldn't call it a good match for the machine right out of the box. The assembly instructions leave a lot to be desired, and I found myself doing partial disassemblies and backing up a couple steps throughout the entire process. Honestly, it took way too long to get the base together properly. I couldn't have done any worse without any instructions at all. Having said that, this is a truly heavy duty base, and is rock solid. Once built, the quality is very good, as it should be in its price range..
Tight space in my shop . The mobile base allows me to easily move the table saw when needed.
Very well made and easy to assemble.
I love this product!!! well worth the money! easy to assemble and easy to use, makes moving my saw around a piece of cake!!
These are a necessity if you have a smaller work area that allows you to move the unit easily!
Great product. Well made, strong, well thought out product. highly recommend this mobile base.
Im glad that I bought this. It makes moving the table saw a breeze.
would not slide into each other fare enough to make it snug must be some weld buildup inside the bracket
Very easy to set up. Operates easily with the saw on it. Must have accessory.
I wish there was a maybe option on the "Would you recommend this product". I bought this for my bandsaw because I wanted the saw to be lower to the floor than it would be if I built my own base. It's pretty good and seems pretty sturdy, but it's a general use base, which provides some difficulties.
One thing that others have mentioned and I found out what they're talking about, is the bolts that hold the rails in place get in the way of my lower bandsaw door opening. So I had to cut off the heads. Not really a problem, since you're unlikely to be taking it apart again any time soon, but still, it's bit annoying.
The second thing, and it's kind of a big thing, is only two wheels swivel. I really dislike that. My joint came with the three wheel only one swivels, and I built a new base for it with four swivel wheels. It's so much nicer! I really hate the two swiveling wheels setup. Since my shop (garage) is pretty small, I'll probably be moving my bandsaw a lot to get it out of the way.
I have a feeling it won't be too long before I build my own mobile base and just raise the whole thing up about four to five inches. The saw is really a lot more stable and less top heavy than I thought it would be.
So - it's a qualified recommendation for the base. If you're not going to move your tool around a whole lot, it's a smart buy.
