Heavy Duty Caster Wheels

Unlike the conventional wheels, heavy duty casters wheels have higher load bearing capacity. They are suitable for industrial, commercial and warehouse setups. They also have an added advantage of being stress resistant and durable. They are available in various shapes, sizes, materials and styles.

What is load capacity on wheels?

One of the first things to consider when buying heavy duty casters is the load bearing capacity. The load capacity of a caster is measured by dividing the weight of the load by the number of casters. For instance, a single caster with a weight capacity of 450 pounds can carry a load of up to 5000 pounds.

There are four types of load bearing capacity casters available. They are rigid, swivel, container and Maxi-Duty. Rigid models are made from reinforced 3/8″ x 5″ plate steel legs. Swivel models can pivot 360 degrees to turn corners.

Container casters are made to fit the ISO Corner Fitting of Cargo Containers. They have a handle that swings forward to lock into a corner fitting. The handle then swings back to unlock the corner fitting.

The Maxi-Duty heavy duty caster is the perfect choice for the toughest applications. It is made of forged steel and features a premium forged steel swivel construction. These casters have a load bearing capacity of up to 10 tons.

The CC Apex HD is another great heavy duty brand from Caster Connection. Its swivel caster has a weight capacity of up to 44,000 pounds. It is also available with a braking system.
