Re: Cleaning a Lortone LS-14 Slab Saw

Ken � I use a couple of �� pipe rollers to roll the saw off the oil pan. You need a clear area next to the saw on the workbench, and a couple of boards the same 3� height as the oil pan. Lift the front of the saw above the oil pan and put a roller under it, then lift the back end and sit it on the second roller, and roll the saw off the oil pan onto the boards. [When the saw�s about to roll off the back roller, move it the front, or have a third roller handy.] When the oil pan is cleaned out, roll the saw back over it and remove the rollers one at a time. You never have to lift the whole saw this way, and even when you�re lifting the heavy back end with the motor, it�s only a couple of inches.

Note: My saw sits �sideways� on the workbench, with the motor on the right-hand side. That�s the way I like to operate it. So when I�m rolling it off the oil pan, it�s a left/right deal.

I never bothered installing a drain in the pan because you still want to scrape out the gunk and the sludge.
