Default Wheels on UDS?

I'm just finishing up my first UDS. I found 4 caster wheels a old toolbox today.
Any tips on mounting them? Do I need all 4?
thanks

If you got hard surface to roll it on to storage? I would use three as it would sit with out rocking verse 4 which could be a potential problem to get them all level or level ground to sit on. I vote for three.

Since commercial Drum Dollies use 4 wheels, my vote is 4.

I welded 3 casters to a drum top, and set the UDS on that, works fine. Wheels are great!

Perhaps, but I can see the possibility of tipping.

I was thinking about cutting up and refitting an old hand truck to mount to a UDS.

Not so far, what do you have on your UDS?

I can understand the 4 wheels considering a full load of drum can weigh something like 500 lbs.
I like three wheels but preferably mounting them outboard for stability.

Go with three. There's a reason that camera tripods, surveillance equipment, milk stools, tricycles, etc, have three wheels or legs and that is because three points of contact is more stable on uneven terrain than four points of contact.

Why would I have a UDS when I have the Superior 22.5" WSM?

My friends with UDS' all use 4 wheel dollies.

There must be a method to their madness:

JM had a thread that discussed wheels. You can get a lot of opinions from this.
"Opinion's, everybodies got one"......or two......or three.

Sorry, I just don't get the need for wheels at all. a UDS is not heavy.

That said, I would go with 4 to reduce the possibility of tipping if you are dead set on having wheels.

If I ever needed wheels on my UDS my first choice would be to mount just two hand truck style wheels and dolly the UDS like a hand truck.
