The saw was about 400lbs, it was partially assembled and packed in 2 boxes. No problems with damage. It was shipped by oak harbor freight, who charged me $20 more to put it on a truck with a lift gate, because I don't have a truck dock at my house. Same thing with the jointer which was lighter. But overall no problems, and I get the impression they would take care of you if there were problems. What are you getting?
Oh yea i heard they dont even help you get the item off the truck. Does the freight shipper call you asking if you need a lift gate? I would...
Unless maybe I can get some strong friends to help. Once its on a handtruck, im set to go.
nice little milling machine. Is 3/4hp typical in a machine that size...seems a little low, but then again, I don't do any metal working. I think when you order it they ask if it is going to a residence, but Oak Harbor freight called me when it got into town.
