Very good mobil base 05/10/2020 8:30:03 PM

Rugged, easy to install. Bought it for my oscillating spindle sander, and it definitely is doing the Job.

Well built 05/03/2020 12:29:21 PM

Why cant they use Imperial sized fasteners in America?
If it had 4 swivel casters it would work better for small shops.

This is an outstanding mobile base. It is solid and rolls smoothly under the weight of a 400+ pound compact cast iron planer from yesteryear. In my shop there are mobile bases from HTC, Jet, Powermatic, and Delta. They all work well, but this new Grizzly Cub is easily the best of them. For the additional few dollars spent on this mobile base vs. others, I have a truly heavy duty industrial item instead of an adequate home shop model. Impressive.

I bought this base to see how well it was made and how easy it was to use. It is made well and fits the machine I bought it for very well. It is adjustable to fit many different machines and I plan on purchasing more for my other machinery. One thing you have to be aware of is you can over tighten the bolts and break the welds loose. Also you would be wise to tap all threaded holes to avoid damaging the bolts.

Well built product. 01/26/2020 5:46:34 PM

They make one of the strongest base out there for the money. It also roles front to back , not side to side. I purchased one somewhere else and was disappointed. I recommend this product to anybody interested in a heavy duty dolly. I own 3 of them.

Moves my band saw nicely! 01/12/2020 12:53:51 AM

I installed this on my Grizzly 14 inch band saw and can move it around easily, I had a problem with the locking cams but one phone call and Grizzly sent me new cams that work. I like to move my wood working equipment out to the driveway on a nice day and work in the sunlight. I used another brand of wheel setup on my table saw and I have to wrestle it out there. I'll be getting another setup of this grizzly brand soon to make that move much easier. I have the 6 inch riser kit on the band saw so I have to be careful since it is a bit top heavy. The joint between the garage and drive way is a bit rough but the wheels are big enough to get over the hump. Very happy with the purchase and also with my band saw.

Bear Crawl Cub - Mobile Base 01/01/2020 2:05:55 PM

This is a well made and designed product. Assembly was very easy and straight forward. I am using this mobile base for my floor model drill press and am very please with the results. Once the press has been located to the desire work area the locking mechanism holds to very steady in place. I would and have recommended this product to several of my friends.

Excellent product 12/12/2019 6:16:12 PM

Built like a tank ! I used this on my Grizzly bandsaw and it is just perfect for this application. Im an engineer and want to congratulate whoever designed this. Did a great job.

These are even better than the Shop Fox version. 12/12/2019 3:42:10 AM

This mobile base is my new favorite. It rolls even better than the Shop Fox ones (which work quite well). In addition,
the 'brakes' are easily set by just stepping on the levers, where the others required kneeling down and turning a pair of screws.
Even though they support a HUGE amount of weight, I have them on my band saw and planer, because even though those machines are way below
the weight ratings for the Bear Crawls, they just move so much easier on the new bases.
Just make sure to get the right size one for your machine's footprint, they come in several versions now.

cheaper than replacement wheels for the rotten wheels on the fox its replacing shame to scrap the old one but makes no economic sense

High quality and capacity for a reasonable price. 08/21/2019 10:11:44 PM

I bought this mobile base and extension to use with a Go691 table saw I was planing to buy during the sale but changed my mind to a G1023RW table saw instead. This is my second "Bear Crawl" mobile base, the other supports a G0640 bandsaw and is wonderful in my rather compact shop. They are much sturdier than other bases in my shop and are easy to assemble and adjust. The casters have very nice tires with metal to metal bushings that spin easier than coasters without metal bushings. These are a good buy and have much greater capacity than I will need.

I purchased three of these for tools it needed to move around often. I wish they had additional sizes available some of my tools just have leg spreads that are larger than they sizes they have available. I would buy them if they had them.

Perfect Fit 06/26/2019 9:17:08 PM

I bought the Bear Crawl Cub for my 1951 Delta Unisaw and it works perfectly! It was cheaper than any of the other high quality mobile bases I researched. It rolls very easily in my garage. The foot pedals to raise and lower the saw easily. The steel braces are far more sturdy than wood supports. The casters and wheels are high quality and roll easily. The corner supports are heavy gauge steel. And one of the design features that most of the other bases messed up on is that this base uses the support feet to raise and lower the saw. Other bases move the casters up and down at an angle which puts stress on the caster stem. Grizzly got it right with this design. Ive been an industrial maintenance technician for over 30 years and see a lot of tool and machine designs that miss the mark. Grizzly hit it out of the park with the Bear Crawl Cub!

Worked well for my drill press. Like a lot of the Chinese made stuff the fasteners are of low quality. Be care using an impact driver. I buzzed my screws just to where they were barely tightened and then used a rachet or wrench for the final torque and I could feel them stretch.

Works perfectly for me. 05/11/2019 10:04:30 PM

I built a base for a drill press, and was fixing to go fetch some casters to weld on the bottom for mobility. I stumbled on this product a few months ago, and immediately purchased it.
It works perfectly for my application. I figure that by the time I went and found suitable casters, welded gussets on the base, and mounted the casters, I'm money and time ahead with this product.
Very much recommended.

I was very surprised with the quality of this device. Its weight capacity at 900 pounds will do much more than the requirements for which I bought it. Looking forward to more purchases for my other shop tools.

I purchased the Cub along with the regular bear crawl mobile bases. These had better wheels than my Shop Fox ones and I do not have to get on the ground to employ the wheel stops. And these are less in price and same quality. A no-brainer!!

Pretty Good 03/11/2019 2:03:32 PM

I ordered this unit to go under my JET cabinet saw. It's good looking, well designed, and works fine. I do have two minor criticisms that don't really detract too much. First; I just wish that the action for the lift actuators was a bit more positive. When using up or down, there isn't a detent or anything to let you know that the lift is sufficiently engaged or that the action is completed. Again, small criticism. Second; The supplied screws and the welded nuts are low grade. BE CAREFUL to not over tighten. I strips at least one while hand tightening without leverage. So be careful. Outside of those two little things, this base is very good. It's heavy duty enough to easy hold/support/move my 550lb saw. I recommend it.
