This premium kit includes a USA-made laser-cut and double powder coated heavyweight steel support structure, hardware, and three heavy duty double locking (rotational axis locking) triple ball bearing black casters (imported).
This item ships for FREE when added to a Garden Tower® 2 order.
This kit is required for using caster wheels directly with the Garden Tower® vertical container gardening and composting system** (DO NOT PLACE CASTER WHEELS DIRECTLY INTO THE FEET OF THE TOWER)
The Garden Tower® 2 already rotates easily with its internal bearing system; this kit is designed for customers that want to move their Garden Tower® 2 easily or frequently. Unlike platforms and dollies, this kit mounts securely to the base which makes the tower more stable during transport.
Our Black Premium Casters feature:
- 3 inch premium extra-wide, smooth polyurethane ball bearing wheels (soft rolling but highly durable composite wheel)
- Heavy-duty, high torque double axis brakes that are easy to use (best available brakes in the industry)
- Black-zinc dipped coating for enhanced weather resistance
- 220lb load rating per caster
Our extra heavy duty Steel Support Structure:
- Positions the caster wheels beyond the center of the Garden Tower® 2 feet for a wider footprint to maintain the original stability of the Garden Tower® vertical container gardening and composting system
- Constructed of 0.24" (very heavy) American Structural Steel stays which are laser-cut for precision
- Professionally double powder coated for maximum resistances to the elements
- All required hardware is included
Assembly is required
- Recommended tools: small standard socket set, adjustable crescent wrench
- The Steel Support Structure is LIFETIME WARRANTIED against mechanical failure (such as bending or breaking);
- The caster wheels & zinc-plated hardware are warrantied for 3 years against mechanic failure (functionality of the bearings, braking systems, integrity of the wheels, etc.).

CAUTION: A) INSTALLING THIS CASTER KIT WHILE A GARDEN TOWER® IS LOADED (IN USE) IS INHERENTLY DANGEROUS. B) GARDEN TOWERS® ARE HEAVY/BULKY AND INCREASING THE MOBILITY OF A TOWER CREATES POTENTIAL RISKS IN CERTAIN ENVIRONMENTS (E.G. ROOFTOPS, BALCONIES, DECKS, PORCHES, ETC).
ADVISEMENT: DO NOT PLACE CASTER WHEELS DIRECTLY INTO THE FEET OF THE TOWER. THE "Garden Tower® 2 Premium Caster Kit" IS DESIGNED TO PROPERLY SUPPORT THE BASE OF THE TOWER FOR LONGTERM USE OF CASTERS.

How much will shipping cost?
- Add a product to your shopping cart, view your shopping cart or begin checkout to calculate shipping costs. Shipping cost “estimates” are actual charges and will not be adjusted after your order is processed.
- On January 18, 2021 all shipping carriers increased their rates and have added an additional surcharge on larger packages such as the tower. We have negotiated our rates as low as possible and are working diligently for ways to further decrease shipping costs. As a small business we are unable to absorb shipping while keeping the product costs as low as possible.
I have not opened up the caster wheel kit yet, but the garden tower had several pieces of plastic broken on the part that connects the levels together. Have contacted customer service but communication has stopped after I let them know I'd prefer a replacement. Hoping it will pick back up again.
Hi Veronica - thank you again for your order. We show a replacement was shipped to you on January 4th. We are sorry you received a a damaged part! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
I put this all together and it is ready for the spring. I would recommend getting a bunch of extra zip ties. The center column needs more than what is provided. Other than that the product is beautiful and ready for use.
If you plan to move your GT2, these wheels are essential! But only do they support the weight beautifully, but it’s easy to assemble, rolls smoothly, and the wheel locks are the finishing touch. We live in MN and the GT2 lives on the patio in the summer but winters in the garage, so being able to move its 300 lb heft with ease makes the transition easier. These wheels are tough beasts and worth every penny!
Still in package, will not use until next spring.
This unit was purchased as part of a neighborhood garden project and we are so excited about both the project and the garden tower. We especially like the compost tube down the center with easy access through the drawer at the bottom. We can hardly wait to plant, grow and harvest our wonderful community garden crops. Thank you for this practical unit!
