Light Duty Model 01

Light Duty Caster Model 01

Capacity up to 200 pounds per caster. These casters have a low initial cost. They were designed for intermittent usage ( light duty ) on manually moved equipment, rolling on smooth floors, in applications where there is no abuse. The swivel consists of one row of balls rotating on an unhardened raceway. The wheels have a Plain Bore ( PB ). Despite the lack of a double ball bearing swivel turning on hardened raceways and the absence of an anti-friction bearing in the wheels, this caster holds up amazingly well in many applications. You may want to consider our caster Model 3. It represents a better return on your investment because it provides higher capacity, easier rolling, longer caster life and a wider selection of wheels.

“You should never select on the basis of load capacity alone. There is no industry standard for load capacity ratings and they may not include a factor for abuse. Our capacity ratings are below what the casters are capable of carrying because most applications have less than perfect conditions. Please refer to the information shown at the bottom of this page. If you have any doubt as to which wheel or caster is the BEST choice for your application contact us for a recommendation.”

Mountings

We suggest that you do NOT drill the mounting holes to attach the casters until you receive them.
