Replacement caster

,
October 8, 2012
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!"
