Just wanted to get different opinions on this…
When it comes to casters for tools, mobile bases, stands, etc., do you use 2 locking and 2 non-locking casters, or do you just use 4 of the locking variety?
I’ve always used 4 of the locking variety as the cost savings has never been enough to make me get both locking and non-locking and I figure 4 is more secure (probably not so but hey), but I know a lot of folks do 2 and 2.
What do you do and why?
While we’re at it, I’ll throw out there that I’ve had really good luck with the Steelex casters available on Amazon. About $6 a pop with top brake…not the highest-end of casters but an excellent value and perfect for my cracked and uneven concrete floor. I’m always pleased when I can get away for under $25 for a set of 4.
