Yup, it gets "stuck" 1/2 way and then you have to apply some pressure for it to go fully down. I haven't figured it out....but doesn't bother me much
I got the MSUV to open and close a few more times and things got better when I put more pressure on it. Next with the miter saw adding some weight it required less pressure from me to close it. I am using a small quick-grip bar clamp to lock the folding leg into position against the frame for increased rigidity.
I just put mine together that I bought last weekend. I had a little trouble with the handle also because of the bolt holes not lining up. I have my old cast 10" dewalt mounted to a piece of 3/4" plywood and then bolted to the stand.
It is my first stand and I'm really happy with it. I think as far as things not lining up it is just the mass producing of things in china without quality control. I can live with that.
anybody else run into this problem? the date code on mine was 0748 and it is the newer ac9944.
To revive a dead thread, I just bought an ac9444 at HD and had to return the first one as it was damage in the box.
The second on had the same deburred problem gtbuzz experienced.
My biggest concern though was the quality of the welds. I noticed them because wherever bolts pass through the body, there is a thick washer welded on and tapped to accept the bolt. I tightened one by hand and the washed snapped off with little to no pressure applied. It can easily be seen that the washer was tacked twice on the same side causing it to lift as soon as it was tightened and break.
I started looking more closely at the welds after that and was amazed at the poor quality of workmanship on this cart. It's definately going back.
Well it's got wheels, so it's not too bad. I have a bosch 12" SCMS on the older MS-UV. It works, but the MS-UV is obviously poor quality. The new one is much better. I would gladly trade up.
I am just the opposite, I prefer the old model MSUV to the new one. I have mine with a DW-708 12" SCMS on it and have no trouble moving the combination around. I have not had to lift it in/out of my pickup, but I don't think it would be a problem. Closed up with the saw rotated to 45 deg it fits easily through doorways and up/down stairs.
My main reason for preferring the old over the new model is there is more solid table space on the old MSUV.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
I too bought an MS-UV (9944) the other day and also experienced a few of the items mentioned here (specifically the quality - or lack there of). When I opened the box and unwrapped the main piece there was a bunch of slag (or similar) that fell out of the packaging. Not sure if these units are going through a final clean/dip before packaging....
Other items of slight concern were that a few of the pieces looked to have mild rust/discoloration on them (not really in a conspicuous or high stress area); drilled holes needing to be deburred, etc. Just seemed like a forced/sped through product.
Mine is sporting my Ridgid 12" SCMS and I have not yet had the opportunity to play... er... use it yet.
Question on transporting - when loading in my truck should I remove the saw from the platform or leave it all together (strapped-in obviously)?
