I missed the beginning of this thread. Is this a contractor style saw or a
cabinet saw? If it's contractor style, it should be too difficult to remove
the motor too, eliminated a significant amount of weight and reducing the
bulkiness of the saw.
I'd agree then, removing the motor would be too much aggravation. As
suggested, removing the table top and wings seems the most prudent option
for transport. The rest ~ just make sure you don't crush any fingers and are
wearing steel toed boots.
Two good legitimate approaches:
1. Turn the saw upside down. Put on pallet or slide onto a
blanket or cardboard. I have a good friend who is a cabinet maker
who takes his unisaw to work in his van this way quite normally.
2. Take the top off. Do NOT sling or load by the trunnions.
Sling or carry by the case.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
You can see by this thread that many here are way overcomplicating this. It
was sugested that you remove the table and screw lifting eyes int the table
mounting holes. Good forged lifting eyes in the holes will suppoort the saw
and two guys riding on it. Fast, easy and safe.
Make it only as complicated as it has to be. Anything more is a waste of
