Customer Questions & Answers

question about the position of gate caster

how much pressure will the spring support would assume the spring would compress as the gate is opened and return to normal position when closed so the wheel is on the ground throughout the full cycle. How do you determine the position of the wheel
Asked by: wellcraft
No, wrong answer. Normally if you have a slope it will be down hill when opening the gate. Therefore spring will be compressed when closed and extend when opening.

What should the height of the bottom of the gate be? ( Shepherd 4 in. Gate Caster with Adjustable Spring Bracket)

Asked by: Fitz
The mounting height for the lower bolt hole is about 7-inches from the ground, this is when the spring is not compressed.

4 in. Gate Caster with Adjustable Spring Bracket and 125 lb. Load Rating is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shepherd gate caster I would say it is sturdy and easy to install. The spring makes it travel over uneven ground smoothly. The Wheel could be a bit larger depending on application. All around a good solid product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from worked well on concrete not so good on dirt I bought this item to help take the pressure off the length of the gate. (single hung 8 ft x8 ft gate) It worked great on the concrete but did not preform well when the gate reached the ground portion of the swing. would not recomend for ground operation. wheel to small for smooth travel and digs on swivel at end of travel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not buy this again or recommend to anyone. This may have worked better had it not been a swivel caster. There is no need for it to swivel since this attaches to a gate. The caster would turn sideways and get caught on the ground and the caster had to be manually straightened in line or you couldn't move the gate. I bought three of these for my gates and installed one of them. After seeing how it did not work, I then returned the other two and then I trashed the one I had installed. Do not buy this unless your gate caster is only on concrete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not perfect I originally bought this product to support the weight of a sliding gate that was falling off of the support beam. After some time the weight of the door bent the metal frame of the wheel - but the wheel still works. So that's a plus for sure. It does what it's designed to do and I have put it to the test. I give 4/5 because I'm not a fan of the thin frame, it makes it difficult to screw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No space for wheel There is not enough space between the wheel and the gate. Unless you have alot of clearance under your gate, the wheel will get pinched against the gate when your opening your gate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, well made, works great. I bought two to serve as rollers for an 8' vinyl fence piece I installed as a driveway gate. I needed two because the panel is all vinyl and not very sturdy. I installed them in opposite directions at the end (latch side) of the gate and the whole gate works excellently. This wheel is really sturdy. You could use it for the tail landing gear on an airplane.
