At RWM, our ExtraGlide 70D wheels are built for durability and ease of use. These rugged, hard tread polyurethane wheels are ideal for ergonomic applications when robust wheels that keep the push/pull numbers at a minimum are required.
The ExtraGlide 70D wheels are available with wheel diameters of 4″, 5″, 6″, and 8″. Each wheel has a width of 2″ and an axle diameter of 1/2″. In addition, the wheels can be outfitted with the UIR-0420-08-70D straight roller bearing, and all but the 8″ diameter wheel feature can include the UIB-0420-08-70D sealed ball bearing. The wheels have a carrying capacity of between 900 lbs and 1,750 lbs., depending on wheel diameter.

Benefits of Polyurethane Wheels
Our ExtraGlide 70D polyurethane wheels offer numerous benefits for your operations. These include:
- Noise reduction: Polyurethane wheels roll quietly and offer significant noise reduction as compared to steel and iron options. This helps reduce workplace noise and improves employee comfort.
- Load-bearing capacity: Polyurethane wheels offer considerable load-bearing capacities and won’t easily deform or delaminate.
- Coefficient of friction: Polyurethane wheels have significant traction and won’t slide like metal wheels. This ensures carts and equipment roll smoothly along any surface.
- Floor protection: Heavy loads can damage the flooring. Polyurethane wheels protect concrete, tile, and other surfaces from damage. The design of the wheels means that prolonged use won’t result in ruts and divets.
- Corrosion resistance: Polyurethane wheels are designed for reliable operation within harsh environments. Oil, grease, salt, blood, or harsh chemicals won’t degrade the material or reduce performance.
