Solid set of Casters

"I used these casters on a dolly I built to hold a car body while I do a frame off restoration. The casters are solid, well made and of consistent quality. They were easy to attach, and have held up well with all the weight and even rolling them across a somewhat uneven surface. A good quality caster for the price."

Replacement caster

,

By Localuser

"I bought these to use as replacements on a Rubbermaid utility cart. The bolt pattern was correct, but the rotating part of the bracket rides back too far and rubs against the cart. A little grinding on the bracket or the cart will take care of the interference.
Study the picture well, before you decide if they will work for you.

Great wheels

,
August 11, 2008
By Susie
from Georgia
"I made a cart for working outside in the garden with these wheels. Having the swivel feature with these makes them work great. I am able to move over the ground easily and maintain a stable seat. The wheels just attach with some screws to the bottom of the seat, easy for even a light handy person to do. Makes my gardening easier to do and I use it for just working out side."

5" Swivel Polyolefin Casters

April 14, 2008
By MBSmith
from Oakley, Ca.
"When I ordered the casters, I wasn't certain that they would be strong enough for my project. The price seemed too low. When I opened the package, I was pleasantly surprized to find that they were all the catalog said they were. They are now in service as outrigger wheels for a power trailer mover. I would recommend them for any medium duty application. They aren't fancy, but they do the job!"

"I use these casters on wooden dollies that need to support a lot of weight. They support the weight and swivel very well at a very reasonable price!"
