This caster is designed to stand up to most heavy duty industrial caster applications and is proudly Made in the U.S.A. If you don’t see what you want, let our engineering team custom design a caster for your individual application.
Swivel Section - Cold formed top plate, yoke and button are all heat treated to prevent brinelling, improve swivel action and increase service life. Both load and thrust bearings are hardened and ground and raceway bearings rotate on hardened raceways. Top plate and legs are 1/4” steel. Legs are formed for increased strength and continuously welded to yoke. All swivel sections are equipped with a lubrication fitting for field maintenance. RWM lubricates all swivel sections prior to shipment.
