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.

Albion Casters responded to a gap in their offerings with an engineered solution to provide more value in the 3” wheel and rig category.  The requirement? A low cost, heavier-duty alternative to premium kingpinless 2” caster and wheel offerings.

Pros and Cons of 2” and 3” Kingpinless Casters and Wheels

2” Premium Caster Rigs and Wheels

Pros: Cost-effective, good maneuverability
Cons: Limited by operating weight capacity

3” Premium Caster Rigs and Wheels

Pros: Higher safe operating weight
Cons: Overkill for many applications,  priced higher than 2” rigs

Albion’s Empire Series 370 & 470 works to give you the safety of a 3” wheel at a cost-effective price point. The 370 & 470 are available as complete casters or components.
