I'm buidling a shelf storage unit for the garage and am going to put
it on wheels to make it easy to move for cleaning or any other reason
I may need to move it.
Since this is going to be sitting in place on concrete for long
periods without moving, I plan on using steel casters since I assume
rubber casters wouldn't be a good choice that they would develop a
flat spot over time, correct?
I wonder if these hard plastic casters I see could develop problems
with potntially a fair amound of weight sitting on them for extended
I've used cheap hard plastic casters for EVERYTHING in the garage without
any problems. Buy 'em at Home Despot or Northern Tools.
I think steel casters would only be useful for loads exceeding 500 lbs.
I built a large paint storage cabinet out of several new but unused
kitchen cabinets, the unit is 8 feet by 3 feet by 2 feet deep. Loaded
its well over 500 lbs, I used steel casters, have had no problems
moving the unit to clean under it after 8 years.
