What we liked
- The heavy-duty high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic is hard, durable, and weather-resistant. Also, it is sunproof protected to ensure it doesn’t fade (it has a UV protected coat)
- It is versatile, i.e., the adjustable piston that will work with different umbrella column thicknesses. The turntable has holes at 135, 140, and 160mm diameters between each other to accommodate different umbrella bases.
- It has wheels for easy movement.
- This stand has small, inefficient wheels.
- The removable moveable mounting rods are not in all holes, and moving them to another to fit your umbrella column length is cumbersome.
What users are saying
“The first one we ordered leaked. We could not remove one bolt from the second one. My husband was determined so we ordered a third one and we are very happy with it! It supports our 11ft wide offset umbrella perfectly. My husband likes that it has wheels and can move it around. It is heavy, though, when you tilt the stand to move it around. Overall, we are very happy with our purchase! We no longer have to worry about our umbrella flying across the yard!” Amazon.com
“Bought this because it was advertised to be maneuverable due to having wheels. It came with wheels on one side only, and when I asked, I was told that it was designed that way and should still be able to move easily. After filling it up with water, the body bulges, and the wheels do not even touch the ground and spin freely. So, no matter how many wheels you have, they would not work. The plastic body is so thin that if I force to move it (drag it), it will wear a hole through the bottom in no time at.”
I am not happy with this purchase. The biggest issue I have is I thought it would be easier to use for any umbrella. I had to tear it apart and pound out the spokes to arrange them where it would fit my umbrella. Now the spokes are pulling out and not holding the umbrella as expected. It would have been so much better to have spokes to screw down the umbrella in ALL the holes. I was also under the impression this was a sand or water base. But when I got the base, it only states water.
Sunnyglade 33″ x 33″ Square Offset Patio Umbrella Base Sand/Water Filled with Wheels is an excellent heavy-duty weight for cantilever umbrellas with a cross base. However, ensure it fits your umbrella as it is a universal one as advertised.
