Heavy Duty Casters
Standard Top Plate
RWM Caster's Economy 53 Series is an economical version of our 53 Series for heavy duty industrial caster applications such as conveyor and dragline operations.
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. Yokes are notched standard. All swivel sections are equipped with a lubrication fitting for field maintenance. RWM lubricates all swivel sections prior to shipment.
