Heavy Machinery Caster Wheels
The manufacturing of cranes, bulldozers, tractors and other agricultural and construction machines & equipment can be grueling. Everything is bigger in the world of heavy equipment manufacturing, and that means substantial weight capacities that need to be moved safely, yet efficiently.
Workflow optimization is a greater challenge when parts weigh hundreds, even thousands of pounds. Carts and carriers are taxed with supporting massive loads, creating challenges and safety concerns. Additionally, some components are so large that they require custom mobility solutions, solutions that require custom casters that can support the heavy load, mount to unique requirements and provide fluid movement.
Heavy Machines Create Heavy Challenges
The Drive Caster™ is designed to move tons easily and efficiently, while offering the flexibility to
integrate into a variety of applications, above and beyond industrial carts and racks. This motor-driven
caster is powered by a 1/2hp electric motor, that can move up to 5,000lbs total weight per caster.
- The industry’s first motor-powered industrial caster
- Can easily be integrated into most carts, racks and carriers
- Great for heavy load applications
Conversion Drive Caster
The Conversion Drive Caster converts your existing material handling carts into Motor Powered Carts,
quickly and easily. Simply remove one swivel caster and bolt in the Conversion Drive Caster and away
you go. Can be used in almost any setting where a manually pushed cart was previously used to move
loads up to 5,000lbs.
- Convert existing carts into powered carts
- Fully integrated solution
- Virtually eliminate risk of overexertion injuries
- Reduce operators needed to move heavy loads.
Ergonomic wheels that achieve an average of 25% reduction in initial push force, reducing the risk of
injury, while increasing productivity. Patented face design with split-wheel design, achieves ergonomic
benefits no other wheel can, and saving energy on powered applications.
- Reduce the amount of force needed to maneuver the cart
- Diminish the amount of injuries that stem from overexertion
- Increase productivity levels for cart operators
