What does maintenance-free encompass?

Maintenance-free refers to the caster rig and the need to grease the bearings via a Zerk fitting. Because the raceway is sealed, the grease is locked within the unit. This means it will require no additional lubrication, won’t dry out, and won’t allow dirt and other debris to foul the bearings.

Will maintenance-free casters ever wear out?

Maintenance-free casters are not indestructible and will eventually wear out and lose performance. Tread can wear away, flat spots can develop, rust and corrosion can take hold, and many other issues can arise. Thus, regular inspections are still required to ensure the safety and stability of your casters.

What are the limitations of maintenance-free casters?

RWM’s maintenance-free casters are designed to operate in a wide range of settings. Our 48, 58, and 68 Series Casters have load-bearing capacities ranging from 1,500 to 2,500 pounds. Further, we offer zinc-plated finishes, Type II zinc dye chromate finishes, and electro-coating finishes, which provide exceptional protection against corrosion. This makes our casters ideal for tow lines, dollies, carts, hand and platform trucks, assembly lines, waste disposal, and more.
