Double Ball Raceways, Strength & Long Service Life
These heavy duty casters feature double ball raceways for smooth swiveling action. Suitable for use in demanding environments, they are also available with gray cast iron wheels that provide superior resistance to grease and oil, which can shorten the lifetime of some types of casters.
Load Capacity and Material
A wheel’s load capacity is directly related to its size and the material that it is made from. Rubber and plastic casters are usually best for lighter loads like chairs or shelving units, while polyurethane, iron core, or molded nylon casters take up to 1500 lbs per caster.
Forged Steel & Hot Forged Top Plates
The Importance of Heavy Duty Casters in Industrial Settings
Heavy duty casters are manufactured with heavy-duty hot forged top plates and yokes using 1045 steel. Deeply grooved double ball bearing raceways, a heat treated kingpin and a lock nut ensure that these casters will stand up to the heaviest loads.
Zinc-plated finish increases rust resistance and durability. Stainless steel yokes and ball bearings are also available for applications where grease, oil, and other corrosive substances are a concern.
Durable Metal Body & Stainless Steel Casters
These heavy duty casters offer superior support for dollies, platform trucks, and freight terminal carts. They are also well suited for hotel housekeeping carts, and industrial and commercial equipment.
