    Choose The Best Caster Wheel For your Project

    An unlimited combination of variables determine the combination of components that a caster needs for a given task. The following describe variables to consider when choose the caster that is right for your use.

    Low weight

    The higher the the load weight, the larger and more dense the wheel required. Gross weight of a truck/dolly should be divided by the number of casters/wheels on which the weight is distributed.

    Floor Conditions

    Floor conditions affect caster and wheel performance. To view which wheels perform best on which flooring type, explore our wheel type page.

    Unusual Conditions: Each wheel has its strengths and weaknesses in unusual conditions. To view which wheels perform best in which condition, explore our wheel type page.

    Extreme Climates

    Extreme heat or cold is a problem for most casters and wheels. To view a recommended operating temperature range for various caster wheels, explore our wheel type page.

    Rolling Ease

    The larger the wheel diameter, and the harder the wheel material, the easier the wheel will roll. Roller bearings carry heavier loads. Ball bearings roll easier but carry lesser loads. Rolling ease is also affected by environmental and application conditions. 


    The difference between swivel casters and rigid casters


    Swivel casters are casters that will rotate in 360°. This allows you to have a higher degree of maneuverability in your facility. Swivel casters differ from rigid casters, which remain in one position. In order to maintain a higher degree of mobility, clients can use all swivel casters. However, most of the time, it is wise to use a combination of rigid and swivel casters to balance stability with maneuverability. Your particular application will determine this.

    Rigid casters are casters that remain in one position. They will not rotate like a swivel caster will. Rigid casters give you great stability but do not give you the mobility advantages that swivel casters give you. For best results, most clients will use a combination of swivel and rigid casters to give them the most favorable mix of stability and maneuverability.
