We, at Douglas Equipment, proudly present extra heavy-duty wheel casters with capacities of up to 10,000 pounds. Our casters are designed to address the safe mobility needs of our select, industrial customer segment. Our heavy-duty dual wheel casters are built solid and compact to securely handle exorbitant load capacities while keeping a physical low profile.
Taking into account the excess weight that our heavy-duty casters are designed to handle, the dimensions of the equipment are paramount. A key dimension of the casters is not its width and rather its height. Low profile casters are critical when the stakes are high and the load that is being mobilized weighs close to five ton. The lower profile physically keeps the height of the equipment minimal. With the lower height of dual wheel casters our customers are able to move objects safely because of the lowered height, which is synonymous with lowered center of gravity.
Why Do We Need to Incorporate Dual Wheel in our Heavy-duty Casters?
While the lowered center of gravity allows for greater stability and maneuvering flexibility, the dual wheels concept is designed to provide additional conveniences. The dual wheel by definition and design allows for differential action during the movement of the equipment. Translation? Our heavy-duty dual wheel casters provide much greater stability of the wheels with far greater suitability for effortless swivel action. On the other hand, the larger in size (height and width) single wheels are considerably less flexible. Furthermore, our experts at Douglas have identified that when it comes to heavy object transport, the greater the load, the single wheels flexibility is diminished exponentially.
Our dual caster is also capable of operating with far less scrubbing effect. The scrubbing effect leads to greater instability. Thanks to the even weight distribution in our heavy-duty dual wheel casters, our customers are capable of moving their items with much greater ease, without worrying about safety or scrubbing the floors, thus damaging them.
Our designated, mighty extra heavy-duty dual wheel casters are firmly guaranteed by us to carry up 10,000 pounds of load. In order for us to confidently present our 5 Ton capable casters, we at Douglas make sure that our casters are made with the best-forged steels.
