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.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
  • 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
(-BS) - prolong wheel life in harsh environments.
