Tip press forward and drop the 8" wheels in place. Pull the press back toward you and the wheels automatically lock into place. Makes moving the press very easy, even down steps and over rough ground.

A set of handles are included for the American Harvester and Homesteader.

Wheels and Handles
This press is extremely heavy. Even with the handles and wheels, it takes a strong person to balance and move the press. Without the wheels, one person is not going to move it. I wish the wheels were a little bigger and heavier duty. For the price they are well worth it and I would buy them again.

added wheels
Bought the wheel kit at the same time that I bought the Homesteader press. Press is heavy and the wheels make it possible to move around. They are best suited to smooth floor as the press is heavy and is a little unstable on grass or rough ground. Perhaps if the wheels were further apart or larger it would resolve that issue. However, having said that, I would still buy the wheel kit as it would be difficult to move without.

Handle bolts were too short and also larger diameter.
The retractable wheels were installed easily and work fine. The handles,although they work fine I had to redrill the existing holes to a larger size and counter bore the frame so I could use the washers. The handle bolts were too short. Everything works fine though.

When I ordered the double tub press, I decided not to order the wheel kit. After using the first time,I ordered the wheel kit,it is a must have for this press,and makes moving press aroun UKd so much easier. Thanks HVR for your great products. .

Good but could be better
The fit of the pre-drilled plates was spot-on and no trouble to install. The instructions did not quite match the number of parts received, and using the best arrangement of washers and pins the plates didn't quite leave room for the wheels received; fortunately it was easy to narrow them by the necessary 1/8" with a belt sander, and fortunately I have such a tool. The retractable design works smoothly but I'm not convinced it's really necessary. The holes in the frame for the handle bolts were a bit tight but once everything was together it all worked reasonably well. Off-the-shelf parts would probably have cost slightly less, but it would have taken much more time to build a similar system from scratch. As long as it holds together for the life of the press, I'll be satisfied.
