When you require the finest quality caster components for enduring the most extreme industrial applications and enormous weight loads, this style of heavy duty caster is one you won’t want to miss. Most dual wheel casters have kingpinless rigs and this robust style of caster uses hot-forged steel, is manufactured with precision, and, depending on size and material, can handle loads exceeding 15,000 pounds PER CASTER!

Factors to Consider in Selecting Dual Wheel Heavy Duty Casters

Whatever your application needs, there are many factors to consider when you are seeking  dual wheel heavy duty casters.There are many, many options when it comes to selecting caster wheel material(s), caster wheel size, load weight capacity, caster wheel bearings, and caster brakes and swivel locks. However, every application is unique. We suggest starting with the require load weight capacity per caster when selecting a heavy duty caster. If you know you need a heavy duty caster that will support 8,000 pounds, this will affect the wheel size and then wheel material(s) available for your application.

Note: Remember to calculate dynamic load capacity by dividing the total weight of your equipment plus its load weight by the number of casters to get the weight needed per caster.
