If you have a need for a mobile base in your shop, you know the important role these bases play. Having a decent base can mean the difference between using and not being able to use your heavy equipment (because there's no one, or not enough people around to help you move it). This week we're sharing some of the five-star reviews of our Rockler All-Terrain Mobile Base. And it's worth noting that all of the reviews for the All-Terrain Mobile Base are five stars!
Jay Kurtz of Indiana reports:
I recently purchased and installed this mobile base on my Woodmaster 718 molder/planer. To say I'm satisfied would be an understatement of epic proportion. It was a tedious task to move the 600 lb machine from storage to production area, with the casters provided. Now I can move it fore and aft literally with one index finger applying 30 pounds of force. Two thumbs up for this mobile base. And, also, a nod of approval for Rockler being a top-notched company. I do not hesitate to recommend them to my woodworking friends. Every order has been flawless. Thanks.
Customer Ray Newman says:
A few weeks ago, I moved the engine hoist into the shop, lifted the planer & rolled this base under my Sunhill 15" planer (approx. 450 lbs). It is now very easy to move. How easy?? Well I can move it w/ my manual wheelchair pushing it & use one hand to turn it. The 5" wheels are the cat's meow!
From Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Mike Davin has this recommendation:
I have a Steel City 20" planner at 790 pounds in a two car garage. This base is wonderful. Expensive but it does the job. I added the extension kit "A" and it did not detract from the strength. If you have a heavy machine, pay once and be happy.
