Humongous spring-loaded casters put the cush in cushion
Tuesday, May 02, 2017
Thursday, April 27, 2017 - We’re always pumped to do our part for space travel. So when a major aerospace R&D company needed herculean casters to carefully move heavy repair machinery for wind tunnels, our engineers sprang into action. We custom-engineered special spring-loaded casters based on our Maxi-Duty Series platform with HPI Swivel Technology and triple-spring actuation to thrive under years of punishing wear and tear. Why spring loaded casters? They provide superior shock absorption for special cargo. They’re also quiet, easy on floors and perfect for extending caster, wheel and bearing life.
In other words, they’re gentle giants.
With a working load capacity of 7,500 lbs., (maximum load: 10,000 lbs.), these swivel casters are equipped with dual 12-inch diameter by 3-inch-wide DuraGlide polyurethane wheels with heavy duty, maintenance-free precision sealed ball bearings. The casters also feature 4 welded sockets conveniently positioned to accommodate a 1-1/2-inch steel rod for manual turning.
