You will be able to dis-assemble it somewhat, remove motor and wheels. The frame should be one piece and solid Cast! Still very heavy. Two men and a boy should be able to do the job.

-- Lifting one end of the plank.

What’s the boy for?

-- Quote from ebay tool listing: " Has nicks and dings wear and tear dust and dirt rust and pitting but in good working condition"

I believe he’s just quoting an old Southern saying… “It’s heavy, but 2 men and a boy could lift it”

Basically, it refers to “You’ll need help”

I heard that the flat table (where you set your wood when you cut it) can be removed, and obviously the top can be removed from the base, right?

You should remove the table. With bandsaws, the table is an obvious place to grab while lifting/moving which really can stress (and break) the tilt trunnions. It’ll also easily remove a significant portion of the weight.

Have your say...
