I sometimes visit my old bosses shop and shoot the $!it with the guys. The shop is about 10,000 sq ft and has carts and dollies galore. The only carts that never get used are the ones with 2 fixed wheels.

I remember a cart in a shop with inexpensive guarenteed wheels on it. With couple hundred pounds of expensive product on top the cart wheel hit a small wood chip and stopped suddenly while all the expensive parts continued on their way…...........52 pick up and lots of money down the drain.

I think its worth every dime spent on a castor that turns over extension cords, wood chips etc. The smaller the shop, the easierit is to move carts when ALL the wheels turn. Kinda like parrallell parking a car….....sometimes the car just wont fit into the opening cause two wheels are fixed.
