    Basically market rate or a little under. If you want multiple items I am open to a deal. PM me.

      Once you go 240, you never go back. Everything just runs better. I ended up doing a 240/120 70a sub to the second garage, can now run two tools at once.

          Even just converting the 1.75 HP bandsaw from 120 to 240 made it run better. There really is a difference.

            220 now there, just have to figure out how to get saw from rockler to my house and more importantly into garage. The main box on the palette is 400lbs. I think the only option is renting a trailer and using heavy duty dollies.

            Carlos, you dont have a portable forklift just hanging around do you?

              Hah, funny enough, my brother does have one. I've got a truck, and they can forklift it there, no? Can the boxes be taken apart to be moved separately?

              Unfortunately I have to fly out of here early tomorrow for a family medical emergency (going well, but need to help with recovery). I can't help until Wednesday of next week.

              And only a 20a circuit?

                I have the truck and they can put it in but its getting it out thats the challenge. Most parts are separate but that one box is big and heavy. it has the main saw body and the 2 wings. even removing the wings its still going to be 300lbs+. also once you unstrap from the palette its becomes even more unstable to try and lift. I think the dolly method will work, thanks.

                It only needs 15A, has a 6-15 plug

                  Sure, but when you come to terms with your 240 addiction, you will need more. I too started with 20. Then 30. Now a 70 subpanel.

                        Instead of a pickup truck, what about renting a small moving van or truck that has a liftgate? Won't be cheap but will be a back-saver. When I last moved, most of the truck rental places only had trucks with ramps - yuck. I thought rolling the bandsaw on that steep incline was asking for trouble. Enterprise however rents box trucks with lift gates to individuals, not just companies, and it worked great for me.

                        Many places also rent vans, including the smaller Chevy Express and Nissan NV200 sized ones. The load floor on these is much closer to the ground, compared to a regular pickup truck bed, and might work a lot better with ramps and/or dollies.

                        edit: I've used my HF engine hoist to move heavy things too - lifts them enough to get a wheeled platform underneath them.

                          Jon, that's a good point, I believe the Home Depot trucks have lifts and they are super cheap.

                            I’d forget the pickup truck idea, good way to get yourself mashed and your new saw bent up! Trailer or big truck with a lift gate! After you get it on the ground at your house you can wrestle it in. The neighbors might not be impressed, but if it works. I had to lift my Powermatic saw out of a trailer with my engine lift, drive the trailer out from under the saw and set it on 4 harbor freight furniture mover dolly’s. After that it was a breeze.

                            I purchased a benchtop milling machine at an equipment show (650 + pounds) they were able to set it in the back of my F150 on a couple of pallets with a forklift. It must have been 9 feet tall in the truck and a real bear to lash down. When I got home I couldn’t lift it with my small engine crane, it wouldn’t reach high enough. It took several days to fabricate an A frame and chain fall to lift the mill up high enough to drive out from under it. Where there is a will there is a way!

                              good advice, I am going with the trailer and a couple of furniture dollies approach.

                                Congrats on the new saw. I’m sure you’ll be very happy with it. I love my PM2000 and the ss is probably the only saw I would upgrade to
