81-154 Wheel Frozen

A quick learner from Utah says:
I have 1 wheel on a 81-154 frozen. Can the wheel be replaced or does the whole roller assembly need to be replaced?

Hello, 

The wheel can be replaced but you would have to drill out the axle to remove your old wheel. Our 81-224 wheel looks like a good option, just make sure that your old wheel is 5/16" wide. Thank you!

Thank you, what axel would you recommend?

I believe you can use our 81-304 axle.

While Casey is right that the 81-224 could work for you, I usually recommend replacing just the whole roller unit. I find it to be easier, as well as being a longer-lasting solution in the long run.
