When selecting a wheel, make sure to get the weight capacity needed along with the diameter, width, and axle bore. In some cases, the hub length is critical to a good fit. As with casters, the larger the wheel, the easier the push will be. Pay attention to hard vs soft wheels, propensity to flatten and marking vs non-marking.
Remember that larger diameter equates to ease-of-roll while wider width equates to higher weigth capacity.
Cast iron, forged steel and ductile steel wheels offer the ultimate in load capacity and impact strength. The wheels feature heavy cross section castings for heavy duty use, abrasion resistance and a long service life. They are resistant to abrasions and require minimal effort to start-up and push loads. Built for high capacity applications, the cast iron wheels can withstand extreme heat. These are avialable in a wide variety of sizes, weight capacities, and bearing types.
