The 95 Series is ideal for applications where high load capacities are required and where the caster will ensure constant use under load.
The integrally forged kingpin and slotted adjusting nut add strength and longevity to the life of the swivel section.
Rugged applications include die carts, towed trailers, automotive plant equipment, aircraft maintenance stands, production line delivery trailers, paving machinery and boat dollies.
Caster Concepts has a wide variety of caster options. Many of these not only improve function – but also provide safety and add longevity to the product. When considering safety options, the most common consideration would be caster locks, caster brakes, toe guards, and reinforced legs. Options that extend the life of a caster are primarily options that seal the bearing of the caster to prevent contamination of the precision parts.
Other options include threaded zerks for when an application is difficult and high level of maintenance is required and track brush wipers that keep debris from stopping movement or damaging a wheel. These options can be added at the time of manufacturing or after the caster is fully assembled.
