I usually tuck my stove in the corner of the room for the summer. Tired of dragging it around the room and marking up my floor. Looking to get a set of casters to move it around. Any suggestions?

I would just use a hand truck. Wide rubber wheels to protect floor which small caster wheels might not. Fast and convenient as well.

Thanks for the info. I'm wondering if people move there stoves out of the way in the off season, and if so I wonder what they use. I was looking into casters but I think it would be a pain to get the legs up and into the cradle of the caster. I was also looking into the nylon furniture moving discs. I've used them to move couches on hardwood before and they work surprisingly well. Not sure how well it would work with a heavy stove sliding across tile?

You should lay down a carpet or runner, especially on tile. Rent a hand truck if you have to, you'll need that back again. A few burley friends or relatives can make life easier. Of course there should be an obligatory bribe involved.
