Some casters move easily and others don’t move that easily. Usually small dia wheel casters on a swivel don’t move that easily, especially when the machine is heavy. Large dia casters similar to shopping cart casters move too easily for a saw. Ideally, the saw should be firmly positioned so it can’t move no way. Depending on the type of caster wheel material used it may move easily or not. Whatever caster you use, I would make sure it has both wheel and swivel brakes and they only are needed on 2 of the wheels. Brakes are difficult to apply on 4 casters, as the brake usually swivels under the base and become inaccessible to your foot. I would put 2 swivel or non-swivel casters at the rear of the saw base and 2 swivel casters with dual brakes on the front
