I use one of those 4' mini rolling/folding scaffolds a lot.
My last one lasted almost 10 yrs until one of the casters finally shot craps.
The caster stem was an odd size so I can't replace the caster. So I bought one at the big box store.
My old one had nice rubber 5" casters. This one has crappy 4" plastic ones. Even when locked, they slide on carpet.
A quick google search shows me that I can't find a high-quality 4' rolling scaffold anymore. All I see are weak one with 4" casters.
Does anybody have a source for good, high-quality mini scaffolds?

:eek:

Havn't seen you around in awhile.


Northern tool and Grainger both have some that appear to be decent. Grainger sells Bil-Jax, and I'm a fan of their towable manlifts. :thumbsup: Don't know specifically about their other products, though.

If your new scaffold is decent you should able to find high quality casters to fit it at Grainger or McMaster Carr

Find some nice casters and take the old frame to a welding/fab shop to marry them up. Then a couple squirts with a rattle can and you're good to go.

He's not talking a 6ft baker, he's talking a 4ft step up. We use several of them daily. Look into a Nuwave Perry step-up. They'll run north of $250, but they are quality.

I have the Perry folding 6' step up. Though they made a 4' too ?
Also like the idea about welding new wheels on.

Nice to hear from you. Good luck. Keep us posted.
