I have an old 6' Woods Finish mower (model PM 3?6-2, can't read the middle number) with worn out casters. They generally drag sideways and tear up the lawn more than they help. I'm looking to replace them but I'm not sure of the best configuration. It currently has 2 rear casters, while some of the newer ones have 2 fronts and 2 rears. Are 4 wheels preferred for a very uneven lawn? Any recommendations on the type of wheel (solid, pneumatic, etc.)?

I have a Woods RM 306 Finish mower, It has 4 casters and still will tear up the lawn. Woods charges $50-70 @ depending on size. I tried cheaper casters but didn't make it through 1/2 the season. I went back to Woods replacements. I am going to put stabilizers on this year. I think it is side sway or 'whip' when going around corners that tears up the lawn and strains the casters. I have a slighlty bent caster attach arm. Now that slight bend is really causing some lawn gouging because the wheel/caster is not aligned right.

Thanks for the info. My mower is indeed a RM 306-2. I stopped by the woods dealer yesterday and the parts to fix the casters (new arms, spindles, and wheels) will be $250. They had no idea about a 4 caster kit. I'll end up fabricating my own setup I think. I'm not sure the mower itself is worth the $250 investment. The big problem is that the spindles have elongated the holes in the support arms so the wheel isn't held straight. It tends to turn sideways and drag.

I'll figure something out.
