  • Improved Durability and Lifespan

    CasterDepot, a national caster and wheel supplier, is excited to announce recent improvements to two of their popular swivel rigs for industrial 2” wide needs. Both have been upgraded to improve their durability and lifespan.

    The USA-made Colson 4 Series and Albion 16 Series have been upgraded to now feature a standard 3/4” thick kingpin on all swivel models which will significantly improve their durability. With the increased kingpin size, the 4 Series and Albion 16 series swivel rigs will last over 40% longer than the previous 5/8” kingpin versions and the leading imports. This translates into a longer lasting part that will be appropriate for even the most demanding applications.

    The Colson 4 Series is one of the most diverse caster series on the market, featuring swivel and rigid top plates. Customizations include hand- or foot-activated swivel locks and tread, side, Tech®, top, and total locks. Wheels have over 20 material options with diameters ranging from 3” to 8”. With up to 1,250 lbs dynamic capacity, six bearing options, and either a zinc plated or stainless steel finish, the 4 Series is one of the most highly demanded casters in the world.

    The Albion 16 Series are medium duty casters for cart, dolly, waste disposal, and warehouse truck applications. Dynamic capacity reaches 1,250 lbs, and available wheel diameters range from 3.25” to 8” in over 25 material options. The series has nine different brake options, eight bearing possibilities, four possible mounting plates and six other potential rig customizations.

    USA­ made is an important purchasing driver to over 50% of OEMs recently surveyed, and both series are expected to add extra value and differentiation to the CasterDepot product offerings. The Colson 4 Series and Albion 16 Series offer the reliability of longer lasting parts, domestic lead time, and a 3 ­year warranty. CasterDepot stocks both the Colson 4 Series and Albion 16 Series for fast delivery.

  • Adding casters makes life easier

    Casters impact people in their everyday lives more that they think. They are used in almost every office setting, they are huge in the medical industry, and they even make life easier at home. At CasterDepot we have a variety of casters and wheels to suit all those needs. Recently, someone reached out to us to purchase casters for an item that they had found on Amazon. They were interested in retro-fitting a bakers rack.

    In a proud CasterDepot moment, we discovered that the customer came to us as a referral from another Amazon customer who had purchased the rack but couldn’t find the correct casters on Amazon’s website. The referral came in the form of a posted review. CasterDepot was able to get the right casters to mobilize the bakers rack for ease of use.  

    At CasterDepot we carry over 100,000 configurations of Casters and Wheels and our experts collectively carry over 200 years of experience. We make it Easy Every Time.

  • Easy on, easy off: Clamp on casters

    When it comes to attaching casters, a few styles are typically the most prevalent: top plates, threaded stems, grip ring stems, grip neck stems and expanding adapter stems.

    Every once in a while though, we run into something that is a little less common. These uncommon caster mounting types include U-plates, holes-in-the-head, knurled stems and others. Recently, we came across a more unusual mounting option: a clamp-on. Continue reading

  • Leveling casters and the FootMaster difference

    The FootMaster GD-80F is a client favorite

     

    Leveling casters boast a superior design that allows not just the mobility of loads, but also a unique locking system that prevents movement. The addition of an anti-vibration cushion, plus a mechanism to raise and lower this cushion creates a unique feature: the supported load may sit completely level to the floor when desired or the load can be raised if mobility is needed. Leveling casters are sworn by in a number of industries (pharmaceutical, medical, woodworking, et al.) and the FootMaster brand's leveling caster products are the industry benchmark for quality and performance. When you are seeking the most reliable mobility solution among leveling casters, you're looking for FootMaster products.
