#S-EPSD-84FST Swivel w/ Forged Steel Wheel
The Enhanced Precision Super Duty (EPSD) Series is all new – new tooling, new dies, new swivel technology! The new EPSD Series is a handsome caster with good proportions and balance. The series is a significant upgrade from the PSD Series it replaces and is better positioned to outperform in applications suited between our Maxi-Duty (MD) and Extra Heavy Duty (EHD) Series.

The unit load bearing has been replaced with new HPI™ Swivel Technology that has been proven superior to designs with unit load bearings. The new EPSDalso features a slightly larger top plate with slotted holes to accommodate the former PSD Series bolt pattern and adds an additional bolt pattern popular in the industry.

Mini-Mite™ Casters 
Series MM - Cap. to 10,000 lbs.



Hamilton is proud to introduce the new Mini-Mite caster for those applications that demand an extremely low overall height and an incredibly high capacity. Each Mini-Mite caster stands only 6" tall and supports up to 10,000 lbs. Hamilton engineers accomplished this feat using kingpinless swivel construction with an immense 6" diameter raceway. The raceways are CNC-machined and hardened to handle the extra capacity. The caster wheel is a 4" x 3" wide 1045 steel roller and inside are four bearings: (2) needle thrust and (2) needle roller. The outside diameter of the ring is 7 1/4" and there are four 1/2-13 holes for mounting 3" x 3" wide. The rig and wheel are painted battleship gray enamel.

#S-EHD-83DH Swivel showing Duralast® wheel.

Double Sealed Precision Ball Bearings are now standard in Duralast® and Poly-Soft® wheel types in all of Hamilton’s forged steel casters, (excluding 2-1/2 wheel widths). These bearings provide far better rollability compared to straight roller bear-ings and maintenance costs are reduced because greasing is not required.

A popular PRONTO®Option on the EHD series is the 4-position swivel lock (-4SL) .

Hamilton's popular Extra Heavy Duty casters are widely recognized for their superior performance, wide selection, and reliable ser-vice. The extra heavy duty caster's extra thick hot forgings, guaranteed-for-life integrally forged kingpin and precision tapered thrust bearing combine to defy comparison. Yet high volume enables us to price these superior products among the lowest priced casters in their class. Also available in a dual-wheeled version.heavy duty casters

Spring Loaded Casters
Series SP — Cap. to 1,630 lbs.

forged steel casters
#S-SPCH-10DB-2 Swivel showing Duralast® wheel
Hamilton's newly available shock absorbing casters are built on the proven and reliable Champion, Workhorse and Heavy Service swivel caster platforms. This means you have lots of flexibility if you need to match an existing bolt hole pattern or a specific capacity range. The unique and simple design enables Hamilton to offer these at extremely competitive prices. Spring loaded casters offer many benefits. These include protecting delicate cargo from shock and vibration, reducing noise levels, reducing wear on floors and extending caster, wheel and bearing life.The legs are slotted such that the axle “floats” up and down as the wheel encounters obstacles. Since the spring is pre-loaded, the minimum capacity is required to cause the spring to yield. (A load under the minimum capacity may not result in any absorption of shock.)
