2. Stem swivel casters loose or stuck also can cause "polished point". Proper maintenance checks, in particular, check the bolt tightness, the number of lubricants, replacement of damaged casters can enhance the rolling performance of equipment and rotation flexibility.

3. Rubber caster severely damaged or loose may cause rolling instability, leakage, load abnormalities, and damage to the floor, etc. Replacement of damaged tires and bearings timely can be reduced due to caster damage caused by downtime caused by the cost of loss.
