Good for the price

They are sand cast and lightly machined, I smoothed the outside edge and varnished the inside, good value for money. Center holes are drilled off center, definitely not for heavy, frequently moved items - I'm making an industrial style table that rarely moves.

Pros
  • Great overall specs
Cons
  • Modern

Durable and robust. on casters

I used these small 2 inch wheels to help my Parkit 360HD electric trailer move a heavy boat with a 500 lb drawbar. Maneuvered through the cracks and steps on the concrete road and they still held on. I highly recommend them, especially for the great price.

Pros
  • Satisfied so far
Cons
  • Quality

Perfect and sturdy on plate wheels

I bought these wheels for a cart that fits in a powder coat oven (large) and they work great. Since the oven is heated to a temperature of 400 degrees, there must be no rubber or plastic on it, otherwise they will melt. They work great and I've been using them every week since I received them.

Pros
  • Pleasing
Cons
  • Negative impression

Revainrating 5 out of 5

Wouldn't buy again. Got less than 450 pounds on 4 of them.

Top bearing ok, turns well at the top, but without the middle bearing the wheel doesn't want to turn as easily either. When the weight is on it, you have to push off to the side. Wouldn't buy again. Find better quality with a wheel bearing, not just a top pivot. Total load was 450 pounds on 4 casters.

Pros
  • Absolutely amazing!
Cons
  • No power

These things are amazing.

I started using them as bases for plastic containers, filing cabinets, dressers and other things. What I like most about them is the smaller size. They roll smoothly on the concrete floor which is why I bought them. As long as the total weight is under 400 pounds I haven't had a single issue with any of them. I just ordered my second batch of these.

Pros
  • Best
Cons
  • Big and bulky

Bought as a replacement for the fourth wheel.

I have an old set of four 2 inch steel casters and one of them was missing ball bearings in the pivot. This item met all critical sizes, so I bought this to replace my only broken wheel. The only difference is cosmetic. where this wheel has holes around the meshed hub and mine had a solid meshed hub. It's not really mentioned in the description, but this wheel is painted silver, although I expected it to be pure cast iron. never mind The bracket is made of galvanized steel and is no different…

Pros
  • Everything is fine!
Cons
  • Dear

Great value, great product. Suitable for unfinished surfaces

I bought these to put gorilla shelving in my basement. Most reels like this are quite expensive, but it's a good price. They're cast iron, so I wouldn't use them on finished surfaces, but they're great for my basement and garage. Smooth wheels, smooth turning, very strong (can bear a lot of weight compared to rubber wheeled counterparts). I've bought about 30 of these now and think they're a good product that I would recommend.

Pros
  • Pretty packaging
Cons
  • Can't remember

Very good for mobile bases

We have had great luck with these reels. I have a small wood shop so most things have to be moved on casters and these casters are just right for an unfinished floor. Just use 2x4 and attach these videos and you have a mobile shop. They appear to be completely maintenance free, just blow off the sawdust and some WD-40 and they're good as new. I've tried polyurethane rubber coated rollers and while they are smoother they just deteriorate in the heat.

Pros
  • Certified
Cons
  • Line is shorter than other picks

I have an old set of four 2 inch steel casters and one of them was missing the ball bearing in the swivel. This item met all critical sizes, so I bought this to replace my only broken wheel. The difference is only cosmetic, this wheel has holes around the webbed hub and mine had a solid webbed hub. It's not mentioned in the description but this wheel is painted silver although I expected it to be pure cast iron. The bracket is made of galvanized steel and is no different than most regular…

Pros
  • Great design
Cons
  • Crumpled packaging
