Rated 3 out of 5 by sleepingprince Wheel construction
After reading other reviews, I was wary about buying this product. I did some research and did not find much else out there in the general market. It would seem that somewhere there should be a higher quality item for maneuvering your heavy hammock stand. The wheels are flimsy and I am not expecting them to last long. They are not up to the usual LL Bean standard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cocoapuff12 very moveable
This is a great wheel stand. When I bought my hammock 10 years ago, these wheels were not available. I had to drag the stand in order to mow my grass or change position due to sun. Very cumbersome. Now, hammock is very easy to manipulate. Easy instructions on how to attach. A "must have" if you buy the hammock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jff2 Super Wheels!
The hammock frame wheel set arrived within a reasonable time and was easy to install by following the enclosed directions.
It has worked out very well by allowing easy movement of the frame for lawn mowing and relocating it to minimize the killing of grass beneath the frame.
It seems light weight but time will tell how long it will last.
So far so good. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by scarlettoahu A must buy
If you want to move your hammock around with ease, these easily applied wheels, should be a must buy for you. The L L Bean Hammock frame is very large and study. Moving is easy as pie with these wheels. So glad i opted to buy them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cherieanne Finally, wheels that work.
I purchased LL Beans large hammock years ago and could never find wheels that worked. These are simple to install and now my husband moves the hammock around easily without dragging. Glad I found this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MDJAK Good Idea, Poorly Executed
Hammocks are notoriously heavy and the design of the stands make them exceedingly difficult to move. When I saw the wheel kit I thought it would be perfect. Unfortunately it is very cheaply made and I am quite surprised, in fact disappointed that LLBean would carry an inferior product such as this to go along with their fine hammocks and stands. The nuts are almost impossible to tighten with a wrench. Reading the instructions, they are to be hand tightened? That's a recipe for them coming loose for sure. It turns, it doesn't stay where placed, and all in all is a waste of money.

The metal piece that goes across the bar and holds the wheels does not curve properly to hold it in place. Since it does not hold tight, it lets the wheels turn to one side.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sudden flimsy construction
This wheel kit was built to break it seems. plastic wheels and the device that connects it to frame is held together with a plastic bracket and bolts that are hand tightened (so plastic bracket does not break or bend when tightened like normal brackets are I assume). In all I do not have long term expectations if used very often.

Very convenient item. Since I was surprise by the strength of the Hammock stadk, no wonder this items is so convenient. Now I can more around my hammock without any help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ME2012 nice idea but doesn't work
We were looking for something to help us move our hammock/stand around the yard. This is the right idea, but not well made. It's made of plastic, the wheels are hallow, and the whole thing caves under the weight of the hammock stand. This makes actually using it to move the hammock difficult or impossible. The wheels also started to break where they meet the axel.
