It is better to use air casters on smooth, nonporous sourfaces as cracks or bumps interrupt the correct flow of air and might impair the air cushions. However the surface doesn't have to be perfect like glass. A standard concrete warehouse or factory floor are usually good enough.

Refrigerator moves forward on the casters when trying to open door. Is the refer. supposed to be flush on floor supported by the frame or on the wheels/casters ? How do I adjust for this ?


it is supposed to just clear the floor on it's rollers . sounds like there might have been something spilled on the magnetic seal making it much stickier than it should be . but there is not adjustment to sit it on the floor totally

Does this chair have breaks?


This chair doesn't have breaks but it comes with casters that will hold it in place. Each caster, which should be placed on the floor where you want the chair stationary, is three inches by three inches. The casters are included with the chair/cammode.

If air caster stops creating air cushions under the load, will it suddenly drop?


No. Even if the air supply suddenly shuts off, it will take a while before the air inside the air caster completely ends. This way the load will not suffer from sudden shocks. However, after the load is resting on the landing pads, it can hardly be moved.

Are there smaller, portable, air casters?


Yes. However they might not be your best solution. Portable air casters usually work best for very short distances and infrequent moves. This means that if you need more frequent moves or travelling longer distances, you will need continuous compressed air supply (high pressure nitrogen bottles), which would make the whole cost more than it's worth.

Where can i get a set of wheels for my five gallon brute vaccuum?

emailthispage.gif printthispage.gif 1" Dual Wheel Caster (Set of 4 6774200 casters with retainers) Catalog No. 420-63-96

Four (4) casters. Set of 4 Replacement Caster Wheels with retainers. This item is the replacement for the plastic, non-hooded casters shown. These casters you will receive are an upgraded dual hooded caster that are a perfect replacement but offer superior performance.

Four (4) casters. Discontinued. Order this item and we will send you an upgraded, superior dual hooded set of casters. A = 1-12/16" B = 1/4" C = 1-9/16" D = 3-7/16"


You can also look at your local Lowe's who sometimes carry a generic wheel.

How do you raise the metro to make it sit higher off the floor? Is it adjustable


This mnaual wheelchair has dual position rear axles and caster forks to allow seat to floor height changes with no additional components. What this means is that the wheelchair is adjustable in height based upon the position of the front caster wheel axles and rear wheel axles. Raising the axles lowers the chair. Lowering the axle postion raises the chair. If the rear axles of the rear wheels are in the top position you can lower the wheels and raise the chair. Likewise, if the caster axles of the front wheels are in the top hole of the fork then put the wheels and axles in the lower hole to raise the chair. It is easy to accomplish this with basic tools.
If the front and rear wheels are already in the lower holes (the chair is in its highest position) you have another option. This option is a more expensive way to raise the chair by buying 4 new wheels. Lets say for example you have 24" diameter rear wheels. If you purchase new 26" diameter wheels you will raise the chair 1". If you have 6" casters and put on 8" casters this raises the chair 1" in the front. Hope this helps.

Can I Mount Casters with Screws into Bottom of Chest Freezer?


youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

Broken Caster


OK Master Draco,

Here is the scoop! The casters on your shredder are 30mm dual, swivel, threaded 1/4 x 20 x 1/4. These give you a rise of 1.5 inches above floor. Trying to match this spec is very possible but a little expensive (of course if the mfg made parts available it would be actually cheap. But they don't soooo).

My research found 71 manufacturers of the product that you need. The cost of getting production samples (which are free) to the USA is a minimum of $25.00! Out of sight for this project.

So, Hamar, what do you suggest??

I suggest that you go to PetSmart and purchase item #2755096 for $6.99 and replace all four casters. This will raise your shredder off the floor a bit more but since your raising all the corners it won't rock you to sleep trying to keep it level.

That's the best I could do...anyone else have a better solution?
