Caster Selection Tool

When specifying or replacing casters, answer these seven important questions:

  • What is the average load and the maximum load?
  • What wheel type is needed for floor protection?
  • What wheel diameter will give the necessary mobility?
  • In what type of environment will the casters or wheels operate?
  • Will the unit be hand-pushed or powered?
  • How many swivel and how many rigid casters are needed?
  • How are the casters to be mounted?

Calculation Formula

Load + Weight of Truck / Number of Casters = Pounds per Caster
For example: 2000 / 4 Casters = 500 lbs. per caster
