" I used these wheel assemblies to relocate a 2 car carport. With the wheels attached, 2 of us were able to push the carport thru the grass. I am sure I will be using these again to move domething else. "

Doesn't meet 450# specs

By CypressTexas

" I had a bbq pit fabricated; I have calculated the weight to be approx. 900 lb +/- 2-3%. I used (2) fixed and (2) swivel casters #18977. The fixed carry most of the load under the firebox which I have calculated to be about 600 lb between the two casters or 300 lb each. Despite the 450 lb rating I have had one weld crack (it was not fully penetrating and I rewelded) and the bearings go out on both. I purchased swivel tire replacements as they have extra flanges to support the hub but they still aren't holding up as I would have expected and this is my second set in a few months. They don't see shock and I move them over gravel at very low speeds. I am very disappointed and will probably replace the fixed casters with a single axle and small 4 bolt trailer wheels. "

" I have a business of assembling grain augers on carts I built that use these wheels. I have been doing this for elevan years, and have purchased a new set of casters about every three years when old ones are worn out. I have been building about 400 to 600 augers a year, and each one makes some of the wheels recieve as much as 1500 lbs of momentary stress, when tires mash so that rim is less than an inch from the ground. Under these conditions, the wheels frequently break away from there hubs, but usually only after repeated side stresses. The wheels can easily be rewelded and after doing this, they last much longer. Also, I keep a supply of new tires on hand, since I use eight rigid and eight swivel casters at once and usually on gravel driveways, so the somewhat cheap tires have a right to occasionally fail. I would like to see higher quality like anyone else, but for the price they are pretty darn good. If you need casters that hold up better, I'm sure they are available elsewhere for around a hundred and fifty dollars each. It would be doubtful that anyone could abuse these wheels more than me, and they serve me pretty good. "

" The bearings held up fine. The wheel lasted about a week. The rim broke off of the hub. "
