This 8-inch by 3-inch 71 series caster has the highest load capacity rating in our line-up of single ball race swivel sections. The bearings in the swivel section act as both load and thrust components and lock the swivel section together to distribute the load over a larger area.
Combined with our 1-inch thick tread, T/R 85A polyurethane wheel, this caster is a versatile solution that brings industrial-strength performance with a softer touch. This specialized formulation is engineered for easy and quiet rolling, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. With its high tear and debris resistance, this wheel ensures exceptional durability and longevity. While offering moderate solvent and oil resistance, it is important to note its lack of water resistance and unsuitability for hot and humid environments due to the risk of microbial attack. Featuring our precision tapered bearings, the wheels are capable of absorbing excessive side thrust loading and can be used where high speed operation is essential, all with a load rating of 2500 lbs.
