Rollers with fewer, larger diameter wheels will always roll more easily than those with more, smaller wheels.

Rollers are made to run on hard surfaces such as steel. If used on concrete, the floor may scratch. Therefore, consider roller model # 3 or larger if used on concrete or asphalt for lower rolling resistance and less wear on floors.
