    I had a Hawk VS226 but I think this advice will apply.
    1- never ever lift the saw by the arm.
    2- put a blade in the saw and keep it under tension.
    3. The hawk has an integrate base. To properly transport just remove the legs.
    4. Best handled by two people
    5. In transit it should sit up. The center of gravity will be low so it is not very tippy.

      What is the age of the saw.? Just be aware that the Hawk has a tilting table so cutting baskets will take concentration so that you don't push downhill. I have a Hawk G4 26 since 2005 It is a great saw and has served me well. Scott is correct, the saw is heavy and an awkward lift.
      Do you have the serial umber of the saw?
