5 Star Review   By member t.fresh - Feb 8, 2007   

Strengths: Tools sits on its own feet. Instant engagement/disengagment of wheels.

Weakness: Being discontinued.

The Herc-u-lift is an excellent item. Theres nothing like being able to move heavy equipment on the step of your foot. Other bases ive seen many times either require the tool to sit on the wheels, bending over to manually screw the tool down/up, but this one couldnt be more simple. Proper set up is critical, and takes some time, but clearly worthy. I imagine it will fit any regular tool stand, with the slightest modification. And any tool stand if you know what your doing with metal. And I couldnt imagine ever needing stronger hardware, bolts are high quality, tool itself is a high-grade mild steel. Ive even modified a set for my closed stand jointer. Great tool.

Herc-U-Lift review....
4 Star Review   By member chrisexv6 - Dec 8, 2006   

Strengths: Universal application Heavy duty

Weakness: Somewhat time consuming to assemble

Nice product, like the fact that the manual lists different configurations for different common table saws (NOTE: this can be used for tools other than Ridgid brand). Manual also has a handy chart to make "universal" setups based on base size of the tool itself (like 24"x30", etc). It takes a little time to assemble it though.....recommend leaving everything loose until you are done getting the tool onto the caster set, then tighten everything down. Could also use heavier duty hardware, but that's not hard to upgrade (bring the bolts to a hardware store and get heavier grade.....I suggest doing this *before* assembly, so you don't need to take apart all of your hard work).

Herc-u-Pain
3 Star Review     

Strengths: works well, rolls well over multiple surfaces

Weakness: Difficult at best to put together.

I use this system on my Rigid contractor table saw. It didn't come on the saw that I bought so I got this later. I had to return the original because it didn't have instructions. I found the instructions difficult to understand and the Herculift extremely complicated to assemble. After I got it together however it works great.
