Heavy Duty Mobile Base - Single

Dakota    Part No. DK2040

• Accepts woodworking machines up to 227kg
• Perfect for mobilising saw benches, planers, router tables, bandsaws, morticers and more
• Made from hardened steel pressings with two rotating and two fixed heavy duty castors
• Create your own shape and size
• Squares up to 890mm x 890mm, rectangles up to 1295mm x 483mm


Capable of holding a 500lb or 227kg machine, this heavy duty mobile base will make the largest of machines fully mobile. The heavy gauge steel sections bolt together to suit the footprint of your machine from 280mm x 280mm up to 890mm x 890mm square or 432mm x 280mm up to 1295mm x 483mm in a rectangle and are powder coated for extra durability. The four heavy duty castors allow even the heaviest machine to move effortlessly across the workshop.

The two freely pivoting castors make steering and positioning very easy. Once in position, the machine can be secured using the two large rubber footed lifting levellers which also allow the machine to be levelled. This incredibly sturdy mobile base is ideal for table saws, spindle moulders, planer thicknessers and any other large machine.

    This is a fantastic bit of kit (especially at the offer price). I built 2 of these up for different workshop tools and each took about an hour to get right. I got sick and tired of the wheel kits on both my Record BS12 Bandsaw and my Metabo Planer Thicknesser which involved tilting the machines to dangerous angles in order to move them. These Rutlands Mobile bases have transformed the machines in my small workshop space. No more lift and tip, just roll the machines around. They have saved a huge amount of time. I would agree with other reviewers that the instructions leave something to be desired. However, if you have a workshop and you've got decent kit in it you'll have more than enough common sense to work out how to put these together. Excellent build quality - hardened bolts and very tough powder coating means these should last a very long time. Buy one and promise you'll go back for another. Glad I bought both mine at the offer price!

    This is a great piece of kit it holds my planer thicknesser with ease witch is 162kg. My only issue is the casters at front don't lift as much as I would hope for.

    I will keep this review short; I've now purchased three of these, that should speak volumes.

    I Bought this to use with my brand new SIP 01332 Table saw but upon assembling the unit on the bottom of my saw (after figuring out the tiny printed & basically useless instructions),I found that the arm sections of the base did not quite line up with each other, they were just out of alignment,I used the hole on each corner of the base to bolt these corner sections directly to the saw base cabinet as i could not see how a base that was not attached to the tool was going to workthe saw weighs in at 177kg & i could not figureout a way to successfully lift my saw onto the base without splintering my spine, however the purchase has not been a comlete waste of time as it has now been put to use on my New 10" x 5" Planer/Thicknesser. The Heavy Duty Mobile Base fits this just fine & on that basis I would recommend this to others

    Best thing I have bought for my small work area, easy to assemble and use. Great value for money and I have recomended it to several friends already. Shame that the rear wheels are fixed as turn wheels would give even better movement. Rutlands staff were friendly and good to deal with, delivery was really swift

    Ive bought 4 of these in the month, they are brilliant, wished I got them years ago, just going to order another one!! If you have a copier / print, enlarge the instructions, but they are really easy to put together!

    Bought a few as I need to create as much space as possible in my little workshop. They arrived promptly, well packaged. As with other reviewers, the 'instuctions' could be better. They consist of a very small diagram and parts list, however, if you give yourself an hour, it can all be figured out. I am sure the next one will be assembled in much less time. Pleased with the finished result and the ability to modify the base size. Excellent purchase at the sale price.

    Bought this for my bandsaw and like other reviewers I found the instructions a little unclear. However after studying the picture on the box it was reasonably easy to put together. My only criticism would be that the wheels could be a little bigger. my workshop floor is uneven and bigger wheels would have helped negotiate the little bumps!

    Good sturdy base for my band saw. Relatively easy to put together - easier if diagram is scanned and enlarged. Good value at reduced price.

    Don't know why I have waited so long to buy this product. Bought 2 units for my Metabo band saw and De Walt table saw. It gives me much better access to everything now I can move these units easily

    Bought one of these bases and got one free. Good bit of kit, well worth the money. I don't know why I waited so long to make my table saw and planer/thicknesser mobile.

    I have two of these units and am quite happy using them. I feel that with slight modifications they could be excellent pieces of equipment in the workshop/garage. My two main points concerning changes would be as follows: Make the rear wheels as per the front i.e. fully rotatable, to allow full movement around in tight spaces and secondly, elevate the frame by approximately an inch to allow movement over garage seals/door lips and uneven ground, as I have found the units to ground when moving the units out side.

    Fitted a mobile base to Metabo table saw. My workshop now seems twice as big as the saw can now be parked out of the way instead of walking and working around it. Bought the Mobile base when on offer at £39.99. In my opinion it is not worth the regular price of £89.95; at this price there are cheaper suppliers or better alternatives.

    Replaced my old wheeled base using chipboard with this one and it is now stable, both when moving and when in its working position - and doesn't wobble because the chipboard was deforming at the old wheel mounts. Regarding assembly: The diagram IS rather tiny and not very good - I found the picture on the box much more help. I treated the exercise as something like a jigsaw puzzle, and quite enjoyed getting it sized so my planer/ thicknesser fitted exactly into the corners.

    Excellent base, looked into making my own but this was so easy and doesn't really impact the height of the machine in anyway. When the lifters are down the machines are very stable. I now have them supporting a stand with a lathe, a stand with a drill press and a large mitre saw. Easy to make any size you like. I have fairly uneven flagstone floors and the low clearance can catch a little but minimal wiggling normally gets it going, as a bonus the screw down feet enable me to level equipment which does support that itself.

    I am very impressed with this mobile base, it is stronger than it looks and moves my heavy table saw on a rough concrete floor with ease, it takes a bit of time to put together but its worth taking time over this to get it right. I got this in the sale but even at full price is's well worth the money.

    The assembly of the base can be a bit difficult if you have never seen one before. I have mine installed on a Jet JTS 250 table saw and, able to move it about with very little effort. I stripped a number of the bolts on assembly and substituted the ones suplied with a better grade. Good piece of kit.

    Good solid piece of equipment which I bought to mobilise my Bandsaw. As others have said, the assembly diagram is rather small and vague if your vision is not 20/20. I overcame this by scanning the diagram to Computer and then enlarging it which only takes minutes to do. From this enlargement the assemble becomes easy....I still give it a 5/5. Quite frankly, I don't kmow how this product can be made and sold at such a reasonable price.

    An excellent piece of equipment and well worth the money. I agree that the instructions are very sparce but there are so many variations in which you can make this equipment fit your requirements that I would hate to be the one to write the instructions. Having said that, if you look at the pictures on the outside of the box it should present no problems at all. The service from Rutlands was fantastic and recommend them without hesitation.

    I bought two of these and fitted the raising castors at both ends of the frame, so had some 'Meccano' left over for other uses. This carries my Kity BestCombi with ease, and enables it to be moved forward, backwards, and sideways, even diagonally or round in circles! Perfect mobility with little effort for the more elderly like me. It enables the machine to be stored at the side of the workshop but be readily available when needed.

    A good mobile base however the assembly instructions are very poor consisting of a small drawing and parts list. I assembled mine twice before I was happy. If you purchase this base ensure you assemble the long and short plates in the correct position. I fitted a base inside the frame which gives extra storage. Also be aware that due to the design of the base the footprint of your m/c will be increased.

    I have them on my Sheppach planer, Sheppach saw bench and Jessem router table and it works very well.

    Unlike other wheel sets and mobile bases, this doesn't have too much impact on the working height of the machine. I like the one size fits all design - it's something akin to a giant meccano set - and have these bases on a number of machines from my jointer/thicknesser to my bench saw.
