I use two fixed and two locking swivels on just about everything. If you use two locking swivels and two swivels, your machine will still move quite a bit as the swivels will still turn even when the wheels are locked. There are some higher end casters that lock the wheel and the swivel, but I’ve found that it’s hard to guide a tool where you want it to go with four swivels – they tend to wander around.

Grizzly has decent prices on casters, but I haven’t compared them to Hartville.
