Northern Industrial Swivel 6in. Pneumatic Caster - 300-Lb. Capacity
Poor tubes, no replacement
These tubes tend to fail where the valve stem meets the tube, so they can't be patched. I have not been able to find any source for a replacement tube, so the wheels become useless.

Short lived solution
Don't purchase these if you're looking for a long lasting tire. Swivel and hardware is fine, tire tube is junk. I will be filling tire to make solid and avoid trying to crawl under cabinet where these casters are located yet again...

THESE ARE CHEAP
I have purchased at least ten of these tires and they have ALL failed. They go flat after a week or so. They are very cheaply made and the fill tube can hardley be reached to fill. I have wasted enough of my money and will be asking Northern Tool to reimburse me or I wont be the $3,000.00 plus customer that I am

Do not buy this wheel and caster! The tires do not hold up. Seriously, they will just fall apart on you. Get a non-pneumatic wheel.

there are no spares
Hands off! if you have a flat you're on your own. They (and no one else i could find) carry inner tubes. mine literally fell apart on three out of four wheels.

These casters are as described. They work out well and are heavy duty. They fit my cart as a simple bolt on item. Good Value

After breaking numerous piano and moving dollys I decided to take things into my own hands and build a serious dolly. My guys have nicknamed our new dolly "Bigfoot" as we have 6 of these pneumatic casters under a 4x3 foot frame made of 2x8s. Needless to say it is heavy but it rolls across my gravel lot with ease while holding 12 foot beams and pipes for boat lifts. Due to the placement of the building and the road we cannot use a dock so we load directly from the lift gate on the truck down to "bigfoot" where it does the rest. Thanks for yet another product that helps make life a little easier.

Pneumatic Swivel Casters
The 6 inch pneumatic swivel casters were used to construct a three foot square wood dolly which I use to move large heavy items around our property. An example is moving the table saw from the shop across our gravel driveway and parking area, several hundred feet of lawn, to the back of the house where I'm building a deck. The move was easy, the wheels rolled smoothly across the gravel and lawn surfaces. The casters are well made and being galvanized will not rust in our damp weather conditions.

I purchased six of these to make a flat cart approximately 6' X 4' to move equipment between 400 and 100 pounds around my lot by towing it with an OHV (can't afford a forklift yet). I have large gravel so I went with the inflatable casters hoping it would roll over the rock, which it does perfectly. Has a little trouble where the rock is deep but in order to keep the height to a minimum this was perfect.
The only difficulty I have is the valve stems are difficult to fill because of the limited room but there isn't much choice on the design of it.

Good for light weight applications
I bought 2 of these for the front wheels of a car dolly and another 2 non swivel for the rear. The shell was completely stripped inside and out (no subframe or any suspension components) so it did not weigh too much. The pneumatic wheels had alot of trouble rolling around the smooth garage floor. I had to switch to ridged casters. Casters are too soft to handle a lot of weight. Recommended for light weight applications.
