I just finished putting the Herculift on my Ridgid table saw, I am it seems
it only lifts it maybe a 1/4 of inch. Since the floor where I use it isn't
exactly level, the feet scrape when I try and move it...
Is this normal or did I install it incorrectly?
Leuf, thanks for the reply. The feet are up as high as they will go before
the unit is still on the wheels even after I release the latch (hope that
I went to the local HD to check out the display model, and it appears that
whoever attempted to put it together gave up half way through, as half of it
wasn't even attached to the frame... lol
The only thing that would prevent the saw from coming down more should
be the amount of slack you have at the bolts where the lift connects
to the legs. I have enough slack in mine to lift the foot pedal up
so that is even with the bottom of the gray bracing between the legs.
If you have as much slack as you can get then I think you have as much
lift as you can get out of it. You already have more lift than I have
set on mine, I don't move it very much and the floor is pretty flat in
You could try adding something either to the upper or lower section
where they bear on each other. That should make them engage each
other sooner but not require so much of an angle. It would need to be
out of metal but you could try sticking a piece of wood in there as a
proof of concept.
