Just as heavy duty as it says it is, a very good mobile base,
This review is from: Shop Fox D2057A Adjustable Mobile Base, Small (Tools & Home Improvement)
This really is a heavy duty mobile base. I bought the Grizzly 14" band saw (G0555) at the Grizzly showroom in Bellingham, WA and picked one of these up to mount it on for moving around in the limited room I have for my garage-converted wood shop to park the band saw out of the way when I am not using it. It assembles quickly has good instructions and tips for installation (maybe, it's obvious, but they do point out it's a lot easier to assemble the stand for your table or band saw first and mount that on the mobile base. In fact, that allowed me to back my van up to the opening of my garage, carefully turn and tip the 167 lb. band saw laying in the back up on end and carefully slide it into place on its assembled stand in the base and never have to lift a thing or call anybody else to help with the back buster of lifting the band saw to get it in my garage and mobilized to move wherever I want it. My one nit pick is I wish it had a foot release brake instead of the hand turned knobs for loosening or tightening the rubber leveler feet that are used to hold the swivel caster side of it in place when you are not moving it. Also, some kind of spacer/tensioning clamp on the rails to take up the space and hold the saw base stand snuggly in place would be nice but I just used some wood shims and that works.
