Caster Stem Dimensions

For the dimensions of a caster stem, measure the stem length, the stem diameter, the hole location and the hole diameter.

When measuring, collect the following information for all casters:

  • Overall height
  • Wheel diameter
  • Wheel width
  • Swivel radius (the horizontal distance between the center of the raceway or kingpin and the furthest edge of the wheel)

Unique dimensions will also need to be collected for each mounting type (plate, stem, bolt hole).

Caster Mount Type

There are three basic types of caster mount:

  • Plate: Attaches using bolts through designated bolt holes in the top plate.
  • Stem: Uses a stem as the attaching device.
  • Bolt hole: Stemless caster where a standard bolt is inserted into the hole and bolted to the equipment.
