Plate Caster Model K3 is made using a stamped steel construction and is zinc plated. This plate caster uses a ⅜” diameter axle and the swivel caster raceway is held together by a ½” diameter rivet. Plate Caster Model K3 caster brackets have two rows of ball bearings rotating on raceways for smoother swiveling. There is a metal dust cover protecting the raceways to shield them from dust and dirt. Plate caster Model K3 uses a larger plate which is intended to make fabrication easier since it also uses a larger bolt size which is easier to handle. This plate caster performs best if you limit the load to no more than 1200 lbs on a set of 4 Model K3 casters.
The mounting plate is 2 3/8” x 3 5/8” and the hole pattern is slotted to: 1 3/4” x 2 7/8” – 3” and is designed to use a mounting bolt size of 5/16”.
