Rick, I think you'll be fine, the Collins is heavier than that.  I only 
used 20, which gave me about 1500 pounds capacity (and I expect that's 
conservative).  As you can see my room has a wood laminate floor, and I 
wanted to spread the load out to minimize the chance of damaging the 
floor.  So far, no problem and on that surface the base rolls like a dream.

Through the eBay source the cost is $30 for a base like this.  Now, I've 
got to find time to get the 20V going!
