ForgeMaster Casters

Capacity Range: 540 - 2200 lbs.

  • Swivel Construction
3/8" thick drop forged steel mounting plate; 5/16" x 2 1/2" plate steel legs robotically welded inside and outside to forged steel horn base.
  • Kingpin
1" diameter integrally forged with mounting plate guaranteed for life, threaded for 3/4" diameter lock nut.
  • Main Load Bearing
CNC-machined 3 1/4" diameter raceway; 1/2" diameter hardened and polished steel balls.
  • Secondary Load Bearing
1" precision tapered thrust bearing counteracts radial thrust.
  • Axle
3/4" diameter hex head with lock nut.
  • Lubrication Fittings
Ball-check type in swivel assembly and wheel hub.
  • Swivel Lock
4 Position (-4SL) - convert swivel to rigid for straight line steering, robotically welded housing & CNC-milled slots assure long lasting, trouble-free performance.
  • Sealed Swivel Assembly
(-SS) - prolongs caster life in harsh environments, not available with swivel lock.
  • Wheel Bearing Seals
(-DS) - prolong wheel life in harsh environments.
  • HPI™ Swivel Technology
This series can be upgraded to Hamilton’s new HPI™ Swivel Technology, consult factory for pricing.
  • Custom Engineering
Hamilton engineers will custom design any caster to meet customer requirements.
 
Hamilton's ForgeMaster™ Casters were designed to match popular industry mounting plate, bolt hole and overall height specifications. However, the precision tapered thrust bearing and guaranteed-for-life integrally forged kingpin design make it superior to the double ball race casters in its class.
Hamilton Precision and Durability
The enhanced Maxi-Duty Series now features Hamilton’s Precision Integrated HPI™ Swivel Technology. This new technology outperforms conventional CNC-machined ball raceways, kingpinless, and unit load bearing swivel constructions. The new design improves the bearing’s element of contact and more than doubles the number of contact points. The new HPI™ raceways are also 45% harder than conventional hardened raceways and the surface finish is an incredibly smooth 16 micro inches.

 

The Maxi-Duty Series (MD) is backed by Hamilton’s Three Year Product Warranty. Refer to selection table for qualifying wheels.
