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

Variables:

• 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
