wheels for rottiserrie

I want to put some large casters with rubber wheels on my rott. Can anyone suggest a place that would carry a caster with a large rubber wheel? I checked harbour freight and some other places on line and they dont really have anything that large. I want to be able to roll the thing out of my garage without getting stuck like it does now with the small casters and solid wheels. If anyone has any ideas i would really appreciate the help. Thanks

I would use the wheels from a trailer..bit on the spendy side but they work really well..We use these on our pit cart and it rolls fine even on rough ground..

You could check out McMaster Carr. They have a nice selection of high quality casters.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#casters/=grccj

That's where I'm getting my next set.

Farm supply stores usually have them too.

I'm sure there are several industrial supply stores in Thunder bay that sell casters. This one looks promising (click here)


Hope this helps.

Joe - I really like the mcmaster link -

The wheels you're looking for are probably more like these - and you'll want to know the total weight you're dealing with as well.

Here's another source for casters:
http://grizzly.com/
Grizzly Industrial has a lot of stuff, probably somewhere between Northern Tool and McMaster-Carr in both price and selection.....

Stay away from the wheels and casters at Harbor Freight, they are junk.

Don't think theres a princess auto anywhere near me. I noticed that northern has a 12" caster listed on there website. Only thing is there is only one review on it and the person stated the caster fell apart without even being close to the maximum weight its supposed to hold. I guess i better buy something half decent the first time instead of trying to get the cheapest priced ones.

Thank you i kind of figured that. I'm going to get something better this is a home made rottiserrie and its heavy duty i'm sure if i put a cheap caster on there i will be replacing them in no time with ones i should have bought in the first place.

I would stay away from inflatable tires. If they are low or flat it may be unstable with a car on it. I would go with as large as possible steel casters. They will be the easiest to roll around. Even the steel ones with rubber bonded on them get hard to move.

What's wrong with spindles and those space saver spare tire wheels from a junkyard?
