I need to build a dolly for the fabricated deck on my tractor to live on over the winter.

Here is a sample - mine is 52" version. Was wondering what size/load casters I should put on the dolly. It will be resting on it's side.

No idea what it weighs,but you should be able to balance it up on end on your bathroom scale to weigh it.

If we'er talking 4 casters,I think 4in.metal ones with solid rubber tires,will do nicely.That's what I got on a moveable work table,and I put whole riding mower frames on it.:trink40:

Most bathroom scales go to 350 lb. THAT is most definitely not over 350 lb. Maybe as high as 150 lb, but I doubt it.

I'm guessing around 150-200 lbs . Is that a deck you fabricated ?

I would guess around 150 lbs as well.
I have a 54" Simplicity Legacy deck which is around 250 lbs and that is by far one of the most solid decks I have seen. And it includes the heavy duty gear box as it is a shaft driven deck. The 60" version of the deck is 300 lbs.

An idea for storing decks is to build a dolly that stands them up so they take up less floor space. It is also a great way of standing them up for cleaning.

You can see an example on this thread or the picture below.

Thanks I built one very similar to yours. I didn't need the stop in the front, my front roller is very narrow and rests on the inside of the frame instead
