  • 4 inches (102 mm) diameter wheel
  • 250 pounds (113 kg) loading capacity
  • 2.5M/h maximum speed

4 inches rigid stem caster with a loading capacity of 250 pounds (113 kg) and a maximum speed of 2.5M/h. The stem-mount is made with a rubber bushing that expands into a 28 mm steel pipe to keep the wheel in place. You will need to secure the wheel by placing it on a connector with WF-U5/16 U-Bolt (included with the caster). See the Installation Steps tab for more information on how to install W-4EF casters.

Use the F-BUS component when this caster is used with the EP-96-ST pipe.

4 inches casters are made for:

  • Longer trips (100 feet maximum)
  • Higher frequency trips (100 to 150 times a day)
  • Carts weighting more than 400 pounds
  • Larger carts (greater than 24 in. wide and 48 in. long)

W-4EF has an electric conductivity version (ESD): EW-4EF

For carts that will go outside, roll on ramps or damaged floors, it's preferable to use 6 inches casters.

All casters are equipped with a precision ball bearing.

  1. Ensure you have the following parts:
    • 1x W-4EF
    • 1x WF-U5/16 U-bolt - included with the caster.
    • 2x WF-U5/16 nuts - included with the caster.
    • 1x WF-U5/16 metal plate - included with the caster.
    • 1x 28mm pipe of your choice
    • 1x Ratchet Wrench 3/4 in.
    • 1x Ratchet Wrench 5/16 in.
  2. Ensure that the structure is levelled when supported by the pipes that will be wheeled. Otherwise, the height difference might cause the structure to sway.
  3. Flip the structure for a better access to the bottom pipes.
  4. Unscrew the 3/4 in. bolt underneath the plate of the caster using the wrench.
  5. Tighten the nut located on the top of the stem for the rubber bushing to expend until it barely fits inside the pipe.
  6. Insert the wheel rod completely inside the pipe. Help yourself with a mallet if needed.
  7. Tighten the same 3/4 in. bolt using the wrench 3/4 and let the wheel rotate until it grips firmly inside the pipe.
  8. Place the WF-U5/16 metal plate between the pipe and the caster and aligned it with the corresponding openings.
  9. Insert the WF-U5/16 U-bolt in the openings in order to trap the tube inside the U-bolt.
  10. Tighten the WF-U5/16 nuts with the U-bolt using the wrench 5/16.
