Description: This stand has everything and it weighs it. There are nice steel rollers on multi-direction adjustable support arms. Fasten your saw to removable mounting rails that simply clamp to the stand for easy attachment and removal. It’s got great levers to tighten all the adjustments. There are poorly designed legs that pull out and pivot down from the extensions.
I struggled with the package at the Depot. I got a cart. I assembled for an hour. Fit and finish were questionable. I mounted the saw and brought it to a siding job for a month. It’s a little unsure of itself on its tubular feet. A little top heavy, no doubt. The first week on the job both support legs for the roller extensions broke off. One orange clip shattered but the leg still worked. Some laborers failed to notice the little steel ball you press in to unlock the leg before pivoting it back up and sliding it inside the extension leg and broke it clean off.
It’s a 100lb. nightmare. That’s my impression and it comes at a high price because this stand does it all. MOST importantly, it’s got wheels. The sole reason I purchased this down-right heavy-as-lead miter saw stand was for the wheels. I should have known better when I couldn’t manage the box in the store without a cart. The second best feature are the nice rollers but the support legs on mine broke leaving the roller supported by the extension arms, a little wobbly.
I dislike this stand so much that I started this blog. It pisses me off every time I use it and I’ll tell you why because it’s features epitomize the demands of a mobile carpentry shop but it’s functionality and quality are seriously lacking.
I recently purchased another miter saw. I picked up the Makita LS1013FL . The 10" Makita comes in a few pounds lighter on the scales which helps with day after day lifting from shop to truck to job back to truck and shop, ugh. So sick of this back and forth am I that I decided to buy wheels for my saw; roll to truck, pivot onto bed and slide it in. No lifting.
Well, true enough I can now roll my saw, attached to the MS-UV, to my tailgate, lift and heave-ho it’s in. Open tailgate, lean down wheels first and roll to site. The stand should weigh less than 1/2 of it’s current weight of 94lbs !
