I just installed a SMATV headend of two MOR-84 racks, and I had to squeeze them into a tight space such that, any time I have to service them, I'll have to wrestle them forward. What is available for wheels/ rollers/ casters/ trolleys that I might just put and leave under them?

Check your local Lowe's or Home Depot.

Or contact the supplier of the racks.

You can go to any hardware store or Harbor Frieght and be able to find all types of wheel assembly's that will work.

You can also contact the people you got the rack from and they should be able to help you out.

I neglected to include the term "cheap" in my description of particulars. I remember back arounbd 1980, I bought some really cheap, low profile plastic roller type mini dolleies that were made just so you could occasionally roll out your refrigerator for cleaning under and behind it without damaging the flooring. The "wheels" in them were little more than rollers. I'm sure they cost under $10 back then. Given that the racks have already been stuffed and installed and weight nearly a couple hundred pounds each, and that the customer isn't going to be paying me any more to add them on. I'm not looking to spend too much or do too much work just to make my future service calls a little easier.

Found 'em! They're still under $6/coupled pair (need two for stability), plus shipping.

Home Depot has a better grade of product made of metal for more money, but when you subtract the shipping I'd be saving, it wold only cost me about $10 more per rack to get the better product and get it today.
