  • A Look at Hamilton's Workhorse Series

    The in-between land of casters and wheels can be difficult to navigate. Variables like cost, capability, materials, and configuration create gaps in product offerings. Hamilton recognized an opportunity to expand their caster offerings in the space between their Heavy Service Series and Standard Duty 52 Series.

    In this case,  Hamilton created the Workhorse Series to provide both heavy-duty weight capacity and construction from the Heavy Service caster and the 4x5” mounting plate and 3x3.5” bolt pattern from the Standard Duty line.

  • How to Save Your Snowy Driveway with Casters

    Back in September, we received an inquiry from a gentleman in Pennsylvania with an interesting project. He wanted to avoid bulldozing his gravel and grass when plowing sections of his driveway. So he designed a rig that would attach to the back of his tractor plow to allow for a 2” clearance. He needed two heavy duty casters and wheels that could withstand the impact and shear force of plow operation and easily roll over rocks and bumps.

  • Albion’s Empire 370 & 470 Series Kingpinless Casters Bridge the Gap for Economic 3” Wide Wheel Applications

    Colson Group’s Albion division saw a need, rolled up their sleeves, and engineered the perfect in-between economic caster for heavy-duty applications requiring a kingpinless construction.

    Many times, in-between applications are danced around or altogether ignored. Yet these gaps provide an opportunity for innovation. It’s how golfers got countless irons, woods, and drivers to choose from. Innovating for the in-between spaces in the market is also probably how boxer briefs and crossover SUVs came about.

  • 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.

  • A DIY Caster Success Story

    Casters impact people in their everyday lives more than 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 retrofitting a baker's 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 baker's rack for ease of use.  

    At CasterDepot, we carry over 100,000 configurations of casters and wheels. Our experts collectively have over 200 years of experience. We make it Easy. Expert. 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
