How Do You Buy Casters?

Casters, sometimes also known as castors, are wheel housings that can be attached to furniture, equipment, or heavy opjects. Casters are commonly used for moving heavy objects around. They can be made of plastic, nylon, or rubber materials; using different casters for various applications will make your job much easier. One of the first things you need to know is what type of caster will best suit your needs. Different caster wheels are of various sizes, have specific attachments, and come in many different styles. To properly buy casters, you must know the caster's intended use and weight capacity.

Here are a few things you need to know before purchasing your casters.

Things To Consider Before Buying Casters

First of all, there is the question, "How heavy will my item be?" Not all casters can carry a load as heavy as another caster may handle. There is a castor rating on each caster description, so you can decide which caster will be the best for your application.

Secondly, there is the question, "How do I intend to use my casters?" Some casters cannot hold as much weight as others; some casters are made with material that can handle chemicals and solvents; some casters can be used outdoors, and some cannot. Casters are made with a variety of materials to suit your application.

Finally, there is the question, "What type of caster do I need?" Casters are available in a variety of sizes and types. If you want to move a heavy item that will not be moved often or for short distances, swivel casters with brakes might be your best choice. For a smaller, lighter load, fixed-wheel dollies or swivel casters without brakes.
