Are Bigger Caster Wheels Better?

On the hunt for the best caster wheels for your business?

Caster wheels are an integral part of any business or home. They allow you to move heavy objects with ease, and they're also a great way to add style and flair to your office or living room. But, not all caster wheels are created equal. Some casters have better quality than others, which can make them more durable and long-lasting.

LINCO, a leading distributor of caster wheels, offers some help in choosing the best casters for your needs.

Are Bigger Caster Wheels Better?

The biggest mistake people make when choosing casters is assuming that the bigger the wheel, the better. It's true that a larger diameter caster can support more weight than a small one, but there are other factors to consider as well. A larger diameter caster will lead to a higher center of gravity and might be too large for some furniture designs.

Your choice of casters should depend on how you plan to use them. A bigger caster wheel is better for heavy-duty materials. For example, if you're building a workbench, you'll need to support more weight, so bigger caster wheels are more suitable.

Smaller is better with carpet and other soft surfaces. These caster wheels will wear down more quickly on hard surfaces, but they're better for lighter-duty tasks like rolling around a table or an entertainment center with lots of electronics inside.

The question of whether larger casters are better is a common one, especially among DIYers, because there is no single answer that applies to everyone. The best way to decide which size caster wheel you need for your project is by considering the weight requirements and application specifics.

There are two main types of casters — swivel and rigid — each with their own unique benefits.

      Swivel casters: Swivel casters allow mobility in any direction while still allowing items to remain stationary when they're locked into place.

      Rigid casters: Rigid casters can only roll forward or backward, but they tend to be stronger than swivel models, so they're often used on heavier loads such as industrial equipment or furniture pieces like dining room tables and desks (where mobility isn't always necessary).

Bigger caster wheels are not always better. In fact, the size of a wheel has little to do with its quality and performance. The most important factor is the load capacity of a caster — how much weight it can support before failing or breaking down. It is why you should always check your caster's load rating before making any purchase decisions.
