Product Information:

Double brake locks both wheel and swivel rotation with the touch of a toe.

Put your entire shop on wheels! Load rating for each caster is 300 lbs. Easy rolling, non-marring, polyurethane tires will not "flat spot" during long periods of remaining stationary. Swivel and wheel ride on ball bearings for smooth rolling and turning. Double brake locks both wheel and swivel rotation with the touch of a toe. Unlike cheaper casters, which only lock the wheel and allow the supported load to move around as the caster rotates on its base, these provide a rock solid base. 5" casters are 6-1/4" tall. Plate size is 2-3/4" W x 3-3/4" L. Distance between holes is 1-3/4" x 3" center to center.

  • Using Casters In The Woodshop - There's really not much limit on what you can make mobile with casters, except your imagination.
  • GO MOBILE - Few of us ever admit to having “enough” tools and machinery, but sooner or later, we realize that it’s possible to own one too many. Finding parking spots for those most-needed machines, benches, stands, and materials in a crowded garage or basement can take the thrill out of making sawdust.

    Red "tire" failed coming off in pieces - only one of four failed, so don't think that it was overloaded

    Comments about 5" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 4 Hole Mounting Plate :

    I built a 2" X 6" wood frame for a large old cast iron blacksmith forge, and its cast iron blower, and needed to replace 3" casters which were too low. The 5" ones work nicely as I winch the forge up a ramp onto my trailer to go demonstrate blacksmithing at other sites, often rough ground. No effects from exposure to rain and sun, heat or cold. Brakes hold well while trailering. 2 casters used with 2 of the 5" non-caster wheels, so the rig doesn't go sidewise on side slopes. Very satisfied.

    Comments about 5" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 4 Hole Mounting Plate :

    I've been using this type of castor in the workshop for awhile and haven't been disappointed. Recently, I built a large heavy duty potting bench that could be moved around. These castors were just the right match with a 5" clearance and a load rating of 300 lbs per wheel. I also like the red rubber wheels as they are easy to see.

    Short life span!

    Comments about 5" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 4 Hole Mounting Plate :

    These casters were great the first 2 years, but then the red layer began to crack and then fell apart. Now you can no longer lock the wheels because the black inner tire is too small for the brake to touch. For the price, I expected longer service. I won't be buying any more.

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Rolls over bumps easily

    Cons

    • 3 or 4" unlock easily
    • Difficult To Use
    • Hard to unlock

    Best Uses

    • Mobil tables
    • Mobil tool base

    Comments about 5" Caster, Double Locking, Swiveling with 4 Hole Mounting Plate :

    The locking mechanism is the same size on the 3", 4", and 5" wheels. The smaller sizes are very easy to unlock. The largest diameter wheel crowds the locking/unlocking tabs which makes them harder to unlock. The taller wheels though will climb over rough or bumpy surfaces more easily. In any size though these are better wheels than other brands I have in my shop.
