What is a Caster? A caster (or castor) is an undriven wheel that is designed to be attached to the bottom of a larger object (the "vehicle") to enable that object to be moved. Casters are used in numerous applications, includingshopping carts, office chairs, toy wagons, hospital beds, and material handling equipment.
How to choose my right caster? Generally,the greater the weight, the larger the wheel required for the caster. Larger wheels distribute weight and roll more easily over floor obstructions. To determine the load capacity for each caster, divide the combined weight of the equipment and maximum load by the number of casters to be used.
