Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinOH Best caster in the store
I used these on a custom miter saw / table saw stand. Hands down these are the best casters in the store. They roll easy, they lock tight. Worth every penny (and a few extra pennies over the other in store casters).
I agree with the other reviewers they desperately need to create a non-swivel (fixed) version of these. It would make life so much easier on some of my lumber carts. Four swivel casters can change direction on you in an instant, only having two swivels would be a blessing.
That said... I'll keep buying these every time I need casters. They're rockstars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by twalsh1490 Ideal wheels
My workshop is outside. When it rains, stuff gets wet, 52 weeks per year.
To deal with weather, I built a series of rolling boxes, cabinets, and platforms. This is the best caster I've used.
* The polyurethane wheels do well on a deck, on concrete, bricks, and on dirt.
* The locking system REALLY locks.
* The caster frame has resisted rust for two winters and summers without any protection.
* The wheel bearings and swivel bearings still work smoothly.
But, after two years, the spring steel piece of the locking system is showing some rust. Still working fine.
For my carts and boxes I've learned to use casters that swivel and lock on ALL FOUR CORNERS. As the boxes roll around there are always two brake pedals visible. They "weathervane" behind the box as it moves. No matter which direction the box is pushed there are ALWAYS two brakes available. This is much safer because there are always two brakes available to freeze the box's motion.
The 4-inch and 5-inch versions merit the same positive comments. Great stuff.

Didnt expect to find as good a quality caster for our custom built products, this is an exceptional value and wears and serves the needs of our customers. Great wear and tear, excellent weight capacity, and good Brake, very good wheel/caster

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by diversity210 More to say about casters than one would think
You would think to yourself. Casters! What is there to really say about simple wheels? Well there is quite a bit to say. I have put many different types and brands of casters on many different things and believe me they are not all created equal. Some swivel casters have horrible bearing that do not allow the the wheel to swivel freely. Some caster wheels do not grip smooth surfaces well and makes them slip across the surface instead of roll across. Some casters have bad break mechanisms that renders the break all but useless.
These casters are not the nicest I have ever used but in the price range they are pretty great. I picked up 4 of these casters the other day because I needed some wheels to go on the miter saw station I had just built. These are perfect for this purpose because they have the polyurethane wheels that give them adequate grip on the smooth concrete in my garage and they are also soft enough to have adequate shock absorption when moving across rougher surfaces like the concrete in my drive way. The one thing thing that sold me on these casters was the fact that the break lever is on top of the wheel and sticks out the front. Which makes it easy to access when I need my miter saw bench to stay in one place while cutting.
Originally I thought about using work bench casters which I would have had to order as they lift the bench up on to the wheels when moving is needed and you can disengage the wheels where the bench sits directly on the legs when stationary. Those type of casters work great for a work bench because work benches need to be perfectly level and those types of casters allow for the use leveling feet along with them. A miter saw bench just does not need to be perfectly level though and the wheel break keeps the bench stationary enough to make cuts on the saw. So these were the way to go and besides that I could pick them up right in the store instead of having to order them. All in all these are great casters for the price. well worth the money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrPcFix Locks wheel from both rolling and turning
Really nice wheels -- have an easy to apply lock which stops the wheel from both rolling and turning so that whatever it's attached to won't move when locked. I took off one star because HD does not carry matching wheels without rotation -- usually you'd put two of each kind on whatever you're building and that would save some money and also makes it' easier to push for long distances as it rolls straight that way.

Easy enough to put non swivel casters on the other end. Just shim the shorter caster to make it the same height. You are woodworkers right?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikeH71 Surprisingly good
I didn't expect these casters to be total locking for the price - but they've surprised me. These will have very minimal use, so I felt ok getting them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JDindewad Seems great
These casters are sturdy, easy to install, nice looking and most importantly, the brake works well. The only reason I am not giving them 5 stars is I can't yet attest to their longevity. Good for the price.
