Thread: soft roll casters

  1. #31
    One of the reasons I prefer 1.5" wide casters is that they're less likely to get caught in sidewalk seams/cracks. I haven't found any compromise in performance going from 1" to 1.5" casters.

    I'm getting a Quickie Q7. I selected the 5" soft roll. It doesn't say what the width is. Does anyone know if it's functionally as good as the 5" aluminum soft roll? Now that I'm writing this, I should not be cheap and just pay the extra for the aluminum ones.
    Here's some of the caster options:
    4" Low Profile Polyurethane
    4" Micro Lighted (add $70.00)
    4" x 1" Aluminum Polyurethane (add $80.00)
    4" x 1.25" Semi Pneumatic (add $55.00)
    4" x 1.5" Aluminum Soft Roll (add $135.00)
    5" Low Profile Polyurethane
    5" Micro Lighted (add $85.00)
    5" Soft Roll (add $85.00)
    5" x 1" Aluminum Polyurethane (add $100.00)
    5" x 1.5" Semi-Pneumatic (add $85.00)
    5" x 1.5" Aluminum Soft Roll (add $145.00)

    Thanks Patrick.
    I know you weren't hot on Quickie, but...
    The Q7 seems reasonably priced and covered by insurance.
    I'll try it out.
    Hope it won't fall apart when I'm out using it harshly!

    I sure hope these casters don't rub on my feet like my present ones do!
    I get very irritated when my caster wheels get stuck on the sides of my feet.
    I'm interested in seeing what finally comes down the pipeline to me.
    Big question- Will I like the new wheelchair?

    Hey Pararich, I'm sure the Quickie will last you many years hastle free. The 5"s should be good for any front angle under 85o. The front casters seem to be less angled so they will probably be out of your way. That is irratating hitting the back of the feet. Did you go with a solid seatpan. I think they still use screws to attach the seat sling don't they?

    Ah the big doubt lol, I'm feeling that myself waiting for my new chair. Looking forward to your review of the chair.

    Thanks for the reassurance, Patrick.
    I didn't think to ask about the seat sling.
    Thosed screws have put holes in my Roho's.
    That is poor design, for sure.

    The ultralight seat sling is similar to adjustable tension by straps upholstery on a Top End or TiLite chair.
