Enter the total weight (lbs) and the number of casters into the Caster Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Caster Weight. 

Caster Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Caster Weight.

CW = W / C


  • CW is the Caster Weight (lbs)
  • W is the total weight (lbs) 
  • C is the number of casters 

How to Calculate Caster Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Caster Weight.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total weight (lbs).
    • The total weight (lbs) is given as:: 3000.
  2. Next, determine the number of casters.
    • The number of casters is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Caster Weight using the equation above: 

CW = W / C

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

CW = 3000 / 10 = 300 (lbs)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total weight (lbs) = 4000

number of casters = 4
