Overview

A ball caster is a great way to provide stability to a small robot with a differential drive. The ball does not have any directional bias that would cause the robot to go in unexpected directions unlike a traditional pivoting wheel caster which are better suited to bigger heavier robots (and shopping trolleys).

The kit comes with:

  • Strong black ABS plastic housing
  • 3/4" (19mm) plastic ball
  • 3 dowel pin rollers
  • 2 spacers with thicknesses of 1/16" and 1/8",  (1.6mm and 3.2mm)
  • 2 nuts and bolts to mount the caster to a chassis

 

The total height of the caster is 0.91" (23.1mm) with no spacers. Spacers can then be added to increase the height to a total of 27.9mm.
