5in. Swivel 1000-Lb. Capacity Steel Caster
5" swivel caster
I bought these casters to use on my rotissierie for cars. With a unibody car on the rotissierie they still rotate and roll very easily. Serious overkill on my part ordering a caster with a 1,000 pound rating as their are 4 of them on each end stand of the rotissierie but I was really tired of the cheap, junk casters that seem to come on everything these days and I wanted something that would stand up over time and do a good job. These do the job excellent!!!! Planning to buy the same thing for the next project I do that needs casters!!

made them less sturdy
I've used dozens of these on custom built dollys and carts. They have recently made the cast wheels about 1/4 narrower and thinner. They've obviously replaced the original part with an inferior one. Still works but can't see how it would be as sturdy with less metal.

Heavy duty casters with grease zerks at swivel and axle. Worked great on metal cart and cant beat the price.

Casters for 3400 lb. Table
I recently had an opportunity to purchase a very heavy 5' x 5' cast steel platen table for my ornamental iron shop. The table weight was estimated to be 3400 pounds including the 4" thick steel top and the heavy steel base and legs.
The table base didn't have wheel on it so I began to search online and locally for some casters that were up to the job.
Northern Tools casters saved the day. They were inexpensive, very high quality, and make moving this monster table a task I can do by myself.
