Twergo Lite FAQ'S
Q: What is the difference between TWERGO® and TWERGO® Lite?
TWERGO® is a twin or triple wheel-in-one, TWERGO® Lite is a single wheel. Both wheels utilize our patented parabolic
face design and are ergonomic. They both achieve significant reductions in initial push force and force needed to
continue rolling. However, TWERGO® Lite ergonomic benefits start to diminish at 2,800 lbs and TWERGO® achieves
ergonomic benefits at much greater weights. Also, TWERGO®‘s multiple, independently spinning wheels offer reduced
friction when turning, resulting in lower push force to turn and maneuver.
Q: What makes TWERGO® Lite the ultimate 2” wide caster?
Dollar for Dollar TWERGO® Lite is the best value in a single wheel 2” wide caster. TWERGO® Lite was designed
to help exceed Snook® push table recommendations for push force on carts with a total weight of 2,800lbs or
less. TWERGO® Lite has all the benefits of a traditional caster, and adds ergonomic benefits of reduced initial and
continuous push force. TWERGO® Lite is priced competitively to standard 2” wide casters, yet standard casters can’t
compete with TWERGO® Lite.
Q: What Tread Material is used on the TWERGO® Lite wheel?
TWERGO® Lite is available with any of Caster Concepts tread polyurethanes including TR 95, TR 85, HPPT, Dura,
Standard and Ergo Treads. Shore hardness ranges from 84A to 95A, however we recommend the Ergo Tread for
optimal ergonomic benefits. Custom polyurethane tread formulations are available, contact us for details.
Q: Can I use TWERGO® Lite on AGV’s or in Tugger Trains?
Yes, TWERGO® Lite can be used on powered applications, the HPPT tread material is recommended for those
applications. However, the original TWERGO® wheel offers significantly greater benefits for powered applications,
including higher weight capacities, and reduced friction when turning which allows for longer trains.
