Ridgid Steel caster

"I bought two of these to use as the rear two casters on a heavy duty engine stand that I built. I have yet to mount an engine on the stand, but it seems to work well. I bolted it to the frame with 4 3/8" bolts, rather than welding them on. They work for what they are intended to do and I think they will hold up an engine."

"I got 2 swivel and 2 rigid steel wheels for my bench lathe. Now it moves easy to clean around back. They work well on the existing concrete floor . I advise greasing them before installing. I didn't see any grease on the axles out of the box"

"I used 2 of these to keep a 22' long coffin from bottoming out when putting it into box trucks, works great. I just welded it onto the metal frame and off we went."

"Best price for the strength!!!!
I mounted these casters under my 20kw diesel generator which weighs about 2500 pounds. It now moves around quite easily on the concrete floor.
These casters are much stronger than I needed, but for the price they were the best choice.
