Default how easy is it to move a keezer on wheels?

I'm planning my keezer build with a Kenmore 8.8 cf chest freezer. How easy is it to move that keezer if its set on casters and loaded with 6 kegs?

If you put good rubber casters on it, it should be no more difficult to push around then a regular fridge on sh**tty plastic wheels

I use furniture dollys from Home Depot. They work really well for me

I have that exact freezer, and I've moved it on casters with 6 kegs inside. I wheel it from the garage to the backyard for parties a few times a year. Works great!

It depends on where you're wheeling it around to. My wife and I have no problem wheeling my 7.0 cu ft. with 3 full kegs around the garage, house, or back patio but moving it in the grass is very difficult. We usually have to remove the kegs, and physically carry the keezer around back. You could probably plank yourself around the yard with a few boards of plywood.

I use two of these with a piece of plywood laying horizontally on top to hold them together and provide a platform:

It works well on the basement floor with the 7 cu. ft loaded with 5 full kegs. I could see it struggling on a rougher surface - but for what I need it is cheap, simple and effective.
