Mobile tools are one of the keys to working efficiently in a small shop or if you ever set up shop at a jobsite. This Quick Lift Gravity Stand from Craftsman is easy to operate and sturdy; it’ll hold up to 330 lbs. Best of all, it’s at a price point that’s relatively easy on your wallet.
Gravity stands similar to this one have been on the market for a while. I’ve used several different brands, and they all seem to work similarly. With the push/pull of a lever, they just kind of pop into position with no heavy lifting. They make easy work of moving and storing your miter saw. In the folded position, you can tuck it away in a corner when you’re not using it. It’ll stand on end either with or without the saw mounted.
The Craftsman Gravity Stand is 35″ tall and 35″ wide excluding the adjustable support rollers. In use, it feels solid and stable. The stand’s large, 8″ diameter wheels make it easy to wheel over most any terrain. The Gravity stand includes two universal mounting brackets. According to the manufacturer, the brackets accommodate all major sliding and compound miter saws. The brackets feature a quick release mechanism, so you can easily remove the saw from the stand if needed.
The Craftsman stand weighs 55 lbs. and comes standard with support rollers which extend 45″ to both the right and left. The rollers’ height is adjustable and they feature integrated flip stops for repeat cuts.
