Poor construction

"Purchased this to replace failed bearing raceway on platform cart with same wheels. Very poor construction. Original tire did not hold air well, bearing raceway so poorly constructed that bearings began to fall out within a few months of purchase, with only occasional use. Cart was never loaded to rated capacity and only used indoors, on smooth floors. If this wheel fails as quickly as the first one, I'll need to replace the wheels, forks, and plates completely."

"Great heavy duty casters perfect for heavy weight work carts. Wheel do get flat spots with heavy weight and sitting in one spot for long periods of time (weeks). Once in use they reshape just fine. Definitely a good product."

"I bought and received 2 of these units so as to go flat free on my tow-behind powered grass catcher in Early-July 2013...It is now Early-August 2013. For that purpose they should do well. HOWEVER, on the 3 mowing, the swivel part of the casters had loosened so badly that one did not swivel and was turned sideways. Being in the rear and out of view, I did not realize it was "plowing" up my lawn as I was mowing until I made a turn and saw the damage this "darned" thing had done.
They are poorly swedged at the mounting plate to yoke bearing, thus the sloppiness and devastation beheld. (see sample photo)
I have about 2 acres of lawn and in order to get back to "tarmac", I was forced to remove the assembly in the field, carry it back to the garage, do a weld repair, and re-install this "thing".
Bottom line: DO NOT BUY!

Great Product

"This seems to be a well built caster. I’ve not used it extensively yet but I can tell it is solid and should live up to the 300lb rated weight limit with ease. Shipping was fast and packaged well."
