Default Another Brew stand caster question

I'm trying to decide between these two types of casters. The first is here:

http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...&storeId=10051

The second is: http://www.harborfreight.com/3-inch-...ter-38709.html


The home depot ones are listed as 600 lb capacity. Does this mean all four can only support 600 lb, so each is rated for 150 lbs?

If so, I may as well get the HF ones for cheaper, as they hold more weight.

The HD ad says up to 150# each, so the HF ones are beefier. I've used the HF ones (4") on a lot of projects and they're a good value when they're on sale. I prefer the plate vs threaded stem mounting but your situation may be different. Larger diameter wheels roll easier too.
