RWM’s 2-65, 2-75, 2-76, 2-85, 2-95 and 2-125 Series Kingpinless™ Dual Wheel Casters feature all of the benefits of our patented Kingpinless™ raceway and twice the capacity load. See the details and benefits on the Kingpinless™ Casters page.
Dual wheel casters offer high weight capacities with minimal overall heights, better load distribution, floor protection and mobility than single wheel casters. This is a result of spreading the weight over a wider floor area while offing wheel differential action, resulting in less friction between the wheels and the floor, requiring less effort for the caster to swivel.
Dual wheel casters are ideal for towline applications, shock load applications and abusive conditions, production line dollies and trucks used in various industries such as the ones listed below and other extra heavy duty caster applications:
- ship molding and ship building
- aerospace design and manufacturing
- metal fabricating
- heavy machinery and equipment
- mobile homes manufacturing
- storage tanks
- gantries and heavy duty processing equipment
- shipping and receiving carts
- automotive assembly
- air cargo and ground support equipment
- metal forging
- military equipment
- tractor pulled trailers
- extreme duty platform trucks and material handling carts
- coliseum and gymnasium equipment
- warehousing and freight terminal dollies and carts
Dual wheel rigid casters top plates utilize a larger surface area on many sizes to accommodate the width of the wheels and leg spacing required. These casters will utilize special top plates combining the adapter plate and mounting plate together in one plasma cut component which look like this (DOWNLOAD). Dimensions stated as top plate size on these pages are the general outside dimensions of the standard plate when these tabs are not necessary such as on small sizes.
