Overview
Shop Fox Heavy Duty Mobile Bases are designed to give you a stable and mobile platform upon which to mount machinery and equipment having a variety of base sizes and weights. The heavy-duty casters are arranged on outriggers allowing the machine to sit as low as possible and yet be extremely stable. Swivel casters on two corners provide excellent maneuverability. The bolt pattern on the fixed caster side allows orientation of the wheels in either of two directions. The base can be assembled in any of eight configurations providing maximum flexibility of use. The unique two piece retractable feet use rare earth magnets to allow the knob to turn while the foot pad is tight to the floor. You will find these mobile bases to be far superior to any mobile base on the market in strength, adjustability and movability. This patented mobile base is the most stable on the market with outrigger type supports.

  • Adjusts from 20" x 20" to 29-1/2" x 29-1/2"

    Big Help! 09/04/2019 7:37:16 PM

    This base kit was easy to assemble and it seems rugged. Plus, my table saw will be easy to move around the shop since I am limited on space.

    Extremely solid. Good price 09/01/2019 4:56:07 PM

    I found the base well made with excellent components. Powder coating appears properly done. The use of lock nuts to hold bolts in place was a bit of a challenge. Requiring each nut to be threaded the normal way then backed off, reversed and re threaded for assembly. But its done. I had to cut the stretchers to get a proper fit to my Grizzly GO833p

    This is ok. It's sturdy. The maneuverability leaves much to be desired. Two of the casters swivel and others are fixed. The directions say to place the non-swivel casters so you can move the tool in the direction to predict you will need. The result is a lot of back and forth with a 500 pound machine. Not sure of an alternative though.

    I bought this mobile base to support the G1023RLWX table saw. I was able to assemble and install the base by myself using, chat you call, method 3. Assembly was pretty straightforward with the instructions provided. I had to saw two of the struts to reduce the minimum length in order to have the base fit snugly around the table saw's base. Other than that I am totally satisfied with how the base operates. It does its job.

    The first mobile base I assembled took a while following the instructions but the second and third mobile bases went together quickly. I'm pleased with the mobile performance of the bases.

    Have one under my table saw and it works great so bought this one for my drill press. 08/14/2019 11:49:32 PM

    Warning, when using this for a top heavy drill press, make a large base with the drill press bolted to it. Be careful when moving it because it is easy to tip,

    Good Base 08/14/2019 9:25:17 AM

    I have several of these bases for about 10 years and they work great. The issue I have is the wheels, they crack because they sit in one place.

    I replaced these wheels with the model D2651 available from Grizzly. I used a standard bolt and a couple of nuts to center the wheel on the current wheel support. The base will move easier. I have replaced my fixed wheels with turning wheels as well to make movement in small places easier.

    Bought this intending to use it to mobilize my table saw. I have a cast iron router table extension and want a base with an available extender. I am working in a very tight space so mobility is important. With the extension installed having fixed casters on one end prevents me from moving it as easily as I would like. I decided to order the shopfox replacement swivel casters to change out the fixed casters. To my disappointment these replacement casters do not swivel completely and end up hitting the support so I'm still stuck. My next option is to eiither put a space between the caster and the mounting point to allow a full swivel or to weld an extension to the mounting point to get the wheels where I need them.

    I purchased G0555 saw in February, 2019 and, because of immediately having hip replacement surgery, just yesterday opened the box and assembled the saw - alone!

    I am quite impressed with the engineering and design, quality of parts, excellent assembly instructions, and ease of adjustment and operation. Also bought the mobile base - thanks for a good recommendation! Getting the unit up onto the stand was a breeze: rocked it back and forth alternately slipping four inch concrete pavers under each side until it was the correct height, then sliding it on to the base, which was cradled in the mobile base. A snap!
    The entire process took less that four (4) hours from slitting the box open to making the first cuts.

    Best regards,

    Good Heavy Duty Base But Design Flaw 03/26/2019 2:06:08 PM

    Purchased it for my new table saw. Good heavy duty base but I would like to offer one suggestion for a change in design. Instead of having 2 wheels that roll in any direction and 2 wheels that roll in a fixed direction ( side to side) Just have all wheels roll in any direction. This way the user can roll their machine easily in any direction. The way it is now I fight to move it in some areas due to the 2 fixed wheels.

    Must have if you've got limited space 02/05/2019 12:34:35 PM

    I ordered this based along with a Grizzly cabinet saw. It went together and under the saw easily with no troubles. If you cant figure out how to assemble and use than you have no business using a machine anyway. The base provided a solid stable platform when the stops are engaged and rolls easily when they are not. If you've got a dedicated shop where your equipment doesnt need to be moved than there's no need for this, however if your shop does double duty like a garage then the base is a must have.

    A very sturdy base, some assembly required. 01/28/2019 2:34:21 PM

    A very sturdy mobile base that will be used with my table saw. A few thoughts - some assembly required. The method of using reversed nylock nuts on the arms for locking takes a lot of time. Each nut must be threaded onto the bolt normally to create groves in the nylon, then unthreaded and reversed. All in all I would allow 2 hours to complete the assembly.

    Good enough 01/28/2019 1:29:21 PM

    I bought this for the second tool. My first one was the grizzly bandsaw, and the second for the drum sander. The drum sander was actually too long to fit, so I cut some metal bar stock and put that on two sides. Its adequate for the job.

    It is a good built base and works great. Grizzly recommended this base for the saw but with the saw on the base it is not very maneuverable. I wish I would have purchase the 1200 pound rated base with the swivel locking casters it would have worked much better in my shop I think.

    Nice Mobile Base 01/10/2019 3:59:52 PM

    I bought two of these bases recently. I bought one to go with my new 17" heavy duty band saw. The second purchase was a gift for my son for his 14" band saw. We both had to make a modification to fit our saws. We had to cut down the center tubes to make the base about 1" narrower. This allowed the sides to be flush with the edges of the band saw base. The second modification I had to do to mine was to replace the clamping bolts on one side with shorter bolts. This was required so I could open the bottom door of the band saw. Otherwise, I am happy with the way it rolls and carries the saw. I also have a mobile base for my table saw. I am very happy with the ease of moving these heavy tools.

    Mobile base 01/04/2019 10:06:01 PM

    Put the mobile base under my wood planer and it works well. Only down side is that the locking feet don't retract very far and catch on larger floor seams. Otherwise it moves well on a typical cement floor.

    Great mobile base with some room for improvement. 01/02/2019 1:54:57 PM

    I use these on all of my tools. Many are near a thousand pounds (if not more) and I have no doubt they can handle the weight well. The wheels on the heavier-duty bases are steel and not coated with rubber or PVC. The casters on all sizes feel well suited for the weight load. When the base is locked down, the machines feel sturdy and do not feel like they will roll away on you. They are low profile, but will raise the machine up about 5/8 of an inch. The base has a square of sheet metal at each corner for the legs of the machine to rest on. It measures about 4 1/2 inches square, so plan accordingly. Grizzly's recommendations as to which base fits which machine has been perfect. The finish is tough and overall I've been happy.

    Here are some flaws:

    The assembly is annoying because it requires lock nuts to be inserted backwards... meaning you need to thread the lock nuts vinyl-side first. This will likely result in cross threading. To make it work, you should thread the nut on a bolt the normal way so that it can cut the threads through the nylon. Then remove the lock nut, reverse it, and carefully rethread it nylon-side first. This is pretty time-consuming.

    the tool does get recessed into the base. I've had an issue with a low door on one machine, and a "Grizzly Extreme Edition" plate positioned so low as to interfere with the recess. The solutions were simple, but buyers should be careful about it. The recess is about 2 inches, but the bolts extend above that and can interfere with low doors. I had to remove the Grizzly vanity plate on one tool, and shorten two bolts on a base for another tool. All of my other machines fit well.

    When locking up the base, you thread an undersized plastic knob until the magnetic foot hits the floor. When lifting the foot, if you thread it up too far, it'll drop the foot back down. When fully lowered, the rubberized foot sticks to the floor when left supporting the weight for even short periods of time (my floor is unfinished concrete, so it's not any type of floor coating that is responsible). I've had to physically pry them up sometimes. Not a big deal, but a nuisance.

    The worst thing about these bases is the clearance. One would think that lifting the machine 5/8's of an inch would give you that much clearance. However, you only have about 1/8 of an inch in clearance because the feet can only be lifted that high. I've included a picture for reference.

    Despite these disadvantages, the overall quality is very good and they do feel solid and are priced well. I am glad that I have the range of bases available to move up to 1,000 pound machines around my small shop on a daily basis.

    Does the job 12/31/2018 11:40:11 PM

    Purchased for a bandsaw. Had to elevate the saw with two layers of plywood to allow bottom door to clear the bolt heads on the base. I would be nice to have all four wheels swivel.

    Works fine but bigger than the base of the sae and had to put it backwards(swivel wheel towards back) as the bolts hit the door. But works. Saw seems to sit really solid on this base.

    Really good design with an adjustable low profile frame. Really good mobile base. 12/29/2018 12:08:55 AM

    This is an outstanding mobile base, heavy duty frame with an adjustable low profile frame that with a few twists of the adjustable screws the base becomes rigid and sturdy. You need to pay attention when lowering the bandsaw onto the base and the way the lower access door of the bandsaw swings out, the door will actually hit two bolts if you mount the saw wrong. It's not a design flaw so one needs to pay attention to this part of setting the saw into the base.

    The saw is a beast and the mobile base is a must for my small shop. I would have been happier if it didn't take up so much room outside the saw base but I'm sure it makes it more stable. I haven't really used the saw yet because I'm overhauling the table saw at the same time. The setup was easy enough that I could do it using the book which says a lot these days. Very satisfied so far!

    Meh 12/13/2018 5:30:00 PM

    Assembly was annoying due to the nylon insert lock nuts used as part of what holds the base in the desired dimensions.

    The bolts used to lock the dimensions of the base feel like an insecure way to keep the base together. They just rely on friction on the arms of the base to prevent movement.
    Maybe this is fine for all practical usages, but I feel like something better could've been done to give some warm fuzzies about its ability to stay together.

    The same bolts also prevent the bottom door on my bandsaw from opening. Didn't realize that this would be a problem before placing the bandsaw on top of it.

    The adjustment to raise and lower the base so that it can wheeled around requires hand adjustment (think twisting a knob), which is an annoyance.

    A hole for one of the bolts to attach a wheel was not punched out. Not a huge deal, but only 3 out of the 4 bolts could be used on that wheel

    A bunch of tiny annoyances which made me realized I should've looked around before just purchasing this item.

    Does not roll with a planer 12/07/2018 12:39:49 AM

    I bought this to go with the stand for a 15 in planer but it does not roll as expected, almost tipped over. I am going to replace the casters and hope it will improve. The planer is 400 lbs and the stand should be bolted to the roller frame or else it wants to tip.

    probably better ones out there 12/06/2018 12:21:54 PM

    This "fit" my saw, but I wasn't blown away with it. I'm sure there are others out there that are better. My saw is not one that is going to be moved around much - if ever - so it is fine. If I were constantly moving this around, the screw system for disengaging the wheels would drive me nuts. As far as how "well" it is built - it is sturdy. I have no concerns over it falling apart.

    The directions are clearly Chinese written. It's about like that TV entertainment center you bought from Wal-Mart that you have to decipher and put together at home. The saw was a joy for me - this was a let down.
