    We just acquired a Hobart Q2 two door reach-in refrigerator.  It came with feet which I'd like to swap out for casters.  I called the local commercial refrigeration folks.  They want $175 for each of the four casters I need.  This seems a touch high.  I'm wondering if anyone has an alternative source.  Used is fine.  

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Look underneath and see if there are four holes for a plate mount caster or if it just uses the existing threaded hole from the leg. And then just match thread size or what plate size it would use and get aftermarket casters to fit from someone like partstown,Franklin machine products.should be able to find a whell to fit for around $25.00 each

    AFAIK parts town does not deal with Hobart and that's the problem you may run into with castors for a proprietary product. Those are going to be HD castors so while I think it's unlikely you will find them any where for under $125 each I'd start with local restaurant suppliers and look for used castors and then progress to Hobart etailers.
