Description

Put your open base machines and tool stands on wheels with the touch of a toe. Unlike mobile bases, these casters do not change the height of your saw. When the casters are retracted it sits solidly on its own legs. The swiveling wheels fit most open base saws. Set of four; all mounting hardware is included. On some saws, drilling may be required for the mounting hardware. Weight capacity is 600 lbs for 4; or 150 lbs each.

WOOD magazine review

Easy lift for open-leg stands and machines

Review Summary

For less money than a full-blown mobile base, you can add wheels and stoop-free locking to a contractor-style saw (or virtually any other machine with splayed steel legs). Stepping on the spring-loaded lock lever on each retracting caster lifts the saw’s leg about 1/8" off the ground; step on it again, and the saw rests on its own feet for a rock-solid foundation.
Our favorite part: The ball casters swivel 360°, so we could move the saw any direction without having to jockey it into its parking space.
