I have had this dolly for almost two years, and have noticed some problems with it. First the metal flanges where the feet of the compressor set are starting to bend and drag the floor. Also if you use this for an air compressor its almost impossible to get your hand under the compressor to drain it. Overall it has served its purpose however if the feet are starting to bend with only 448Lbs I cannot imagine 700.
Great product for the money. Pay close attention to the wheel orientation, lubricate the caster and check all bolts and make sure they are secure. If you are going to use the option extension with it, be sure to add that BEFORE you put your machine on it! :) Ask me why? and how I know...lol All kidding aside- YOU won't go wrong with this product. I've got a 750 lb planer/joiner sitting on it securely, moves easily and no problems holding it. It's way stronger than you think it is just by looking at it.
It was a little too "square" to fit the G0640X bandsaw's base snugly, so I shortened two of the support tubes (with my new bandsaw, of course) for a better fit.
The sixteen M8 clamp bolts and upside down jam nuts were awkward, time consuming and not appealing at all to me, so I replaced them with alloy steel M8X40 set screws (McMaster-Carr 91390A150), which work a lot better. If you like a little bling you can also get them in stainless steel.
Got this base when i ordered the G0555LANV band saw, it was too wide so i added blocks to take up the space.
The casters are of poor quality and are noisy and stick when turning so ill get some better ones.
