Stem Caster Model G15 Features:
Capacity up to 1,500 pounds per caster only if infrequently moved in a manual application where there is no abuse. Model 15 begins our industrial casters with precision machined swivel bearings. Benefits include easier swiveling, reduced swivel vibration, and longer trouble free performance.
Model G15 stem casters are recommended only for manually moved applications. Threaded Stem Casters should NOT be used as a “Leveling Device”! Capacity ratings are based on the weight being directly on the top of the swivel bearing, not somewhere above it on the threaded stem.
Pedal on side of Wheel Locks ONLY the wheel from rolling.
Wheel Brakes are not designed to hold on inclines.
Face Contact Brake:
We do not provide the nuts to attach threaded stem casters. Threaded Stem Casters should NOT be used as a “Leveling Device”! The weight should be supported by the top of the swivel bearing of the caster, not somewhere above it on the threaded stem.

Stem Caster Model G15 with 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.”
If a caster failure occurs it is almost always because of misuse or abuse. It has been very rare that a product failed because of faulty material or poor workmanship. The following are examples of things that we do NOT want you to do:
- Dragging the wheel sideways.
- Shock or Impact caused by dropping the load instead of setting it down on the castered equipment.
- Improper Installation such as:
A. Rigid casters not installed parallel to one another.
B. Swivel casters not installed parallel to the floor.
C. Using less than 4 bolts to attach the mounting plate.
D. Distortion of the swivel bearing when attaching the mounting plate due to welding improperly.
- Exceeding the rated capacity of the wheel or caster.
- Exceeding a rolling speed of 3 MPH.
- The build up of heat caused by continuous operation causing tire separation.
