>Why do mobile bases come with two swivel wheels and two fixed? I just bought a drum sander and added the mobile base. It is anything but mobile. If pushing in a straight line a gentle turn is not a problem but moving it around the work bench involved some heavy duty sideways pushing on the fixed wheels. It seems if all four wheels swiveled it would be easier to move about. I've also noticed this on bases installed on my jointer and table saw. The sander is going to need to be moved a bit more often so if there is no real reason not to I'll change the fixed wheels.
