Have power broom. It has leveling wheels on front, have to put them down for sweeping depth. They are on side of box, and kinda bent shafts, so to keep them going right direction I guess. I've used little and they are plastic and wear bad, specially if in gravel that I'm sweeping off the pavement. I also have one bent more than should be now. I can take pictures to see what I have. I'm thinking of doing more of a straight caster wheel, with similar mounting and see if it holds up and has room to move. Even my brush on outside hits these when lifted and spins them around some then. I found on Ag specialty ad some parts for a Caroni mower with guide wheels that look like metal centers, and the forked holder for them. Even found the spacers for adjusting the heights, just like the PK brush uses. Kinda pricey, but seem better built. I've never heard of Caroni mowers, and only seeing parts in book. Must be a 3pt mower or such?? OR, any better idea for guide wheels? Other option is to have just straight wheels, not casters, but then they may just get bent or broken then trying to turn unless I left the brush for every little move, not sure. Not sure if metal wheels would just let the rubber tires peel off, even if castors, or be better. The plastics sure aren't gonna last, can see that. Just scrapers like on a snow-blower would maybe work, but make a lot of noise and wear fast too I think. It is another option tho, I guess.
Diff guide wheels wanted
