PortaMate PM-1800 Panel Carrier/Infeed Table

Steering heavy 4' x 8' sheets of plywood or MDF around the shop and through your table saw is a chore that can tax your back, your patience and your energy. But with the Portamate PM-1800 Panel Carrier, the job becomes smooth and effortless. Not only will the PM-1800 roll your sheet goods easily to or across the shop, but it also swings up to the horizontal position, creating an infeed table at the exact height of your table saw. The same feature acts as an outfeed table when offloading sheet stock from your pickup truck or trailer. Simply set it up horizontally, offload the sheets, swing the PM-1800 down to the vertical position and roll them away to the saw or to the storage rack. Do your arms and your back a favor and give the Portamate PM-1800 a try.


Features:

  • Ideal for particle board, plywood, MDF, sheet rock and more
  • Two heavy-duty inline 6" rubber wheels let you glide your sheets effortlessly around your shop
  • Vertical orientation while rolling makes it easy to navigate through doors or between tools
  • Support platform tilts and lock horizontally, and is adjustable from 28" high to 40" high
  • Integral ''kickstand'' can be extended and collapsed easily with your foot when converting to carrier to an infeed table, outfeed table or side support
  • Sturdy steel construction with hand-truck style handle
  • Carries up to three 3/4" sheets at once
  • Folds flat for compact storage

Works Well!
It's a little awkward at first, but once you have moved a couple of sheets around you'll get the balance right. Great addition!

A back saver
This has been a back saver. Not only for moving panels but can flip up a 4x8 sheet flat to load onto my table saw.

I wish I had one of these 5-years ago. As I get older, I have learned to appreciate that enjoying a hobby is not about lifting awkward and heavy panels. The kickstand feature allowing this carrier to convert to an infeed table is a great design.

Wood sheets can get very heavy to handle and this will help get it from point A to point B.

I am an aging custom cabinet maker and I need all the help I can get. Its not unusual for me to have 20-30 sheets of 3/4x4x8 Maple,
I have to cut. This product will not only save time, but will also save my tired body and give me more strength to utilize else where.

As my age had advanced and my strength leaving me, I had been trying to engineer something like this. My ideas were along these lines but the tilt put it over the top for me. I don't think I can have one built for this price.
