Understanding Small Castor Sizes

Small castors come in a variety of sizes, measured in inches or millimetres, which refers to the wheel diameter. The common small castor sizes range from 1 inch (25mm) to 2.5 inches (64mm). Smaller castor wheels offer excellent mobility, while larger ones provide higher load-bearing capacity. When choosing the right size, consider the weight of your appliance and the terrain it will encounter.
