Out of curiosity then - did you get Hybrid,715p?

Believe me, that sucker is heavy. The driver used the pallet jack and pulled and we pushed up the drive into my garage.

The pallet wasn't much to write home about. Once I got it off the pallet, three of us could pick it up about 2 inches. That wasn't enough to clear the hardware on the mobile base, so we set it down and duck walked it onto and over and into the base. It wasn't pretty but we got it done.

I am glad I didn't have stairs to deal with.

Note: After cutting the tie down straps, the cardboard box just lifts off the saw.

I had a Jet 18" bandsaw delivered to the house. Shipping weight was 315 lbs. The truck had a lift gate so getting it into the garage wasn't a problem.

From there I had 4 steps to get it up into the house and 17 steps back down into the basement. Fortunately, I had doors 4-6 feet away from the door to the house and the door to the basement.

I laid a 2x4, with an eye bolt in it, down inside of the first inside doorway and used a cable ratchet to get it up the stairs. Even with the ratchet, it was still a bear. I had to unbox it to do this so I had something to wrap the ropes around it to which I attached the ratchet hook.

I have Pergo floors so I allowed the bandsaw to remain horizontal and slid it onto some old carpet, fibers face down. Then I pushed it to the basement stairs. I was already beat.

From there I laid the 2x4 inside of the next inside doorway and used block and tackle with a 4:1 purchase to inch the bandsaw down the stairs. The stairs are carpeted so it slid easily but kept getting stuck at the edge of each step.

When I finally got it down into the basement, I used a furniture dolly to move it into the workshop. Then, totally exhausted (a couple times I thought this would kill me), I sat down with a nice cold drink and admired my new bandsaw.

When we move, we'll hire movers to get it back up the stairs. I'm too old now and trying to get it back up the stairs would certainly kill me!

I am sooooo glad I didn't buy that 550# 8" jointer off CL!! And I have a straight set of concrete stairs outside the basement. Still no way I would have gotten it down there.
