Hamilton, OH, February 17, 2011: Hamilton Caster’s new 7500 Caster Series carries heavy loads over uneven surfaces. Constructed with Hamilton’s trademark premium forged steel design and heavy duty, semi-pneumatic tires, these casters offer twice the load capacity of a traditional pneumatic caster. They deliver a smooth ride—even over rough or broken concrete—that makes them ideal for ground support equipment in the aircraft and aerospace industries, construction, outdoor uses, and shock protection for heavy loads.
The 7500 Series is available in six wheel sizes ranging from 10”- 21” diameters with load capacities ranging from 1000-4200 lbs. per caster. The caster is also offered in a dual-wheel version which doubles the caster’s total load capacity. Optional accessories including four-position swivel locks and brakes are also available.
The tires are engineered with three tread sections: a firm, stable base compound for strong rim adhesion; a very resilient middle section to dampen the shock of uneven rolling surfaces; and a tough low rolling resistance tread to reduce energy consumption. The result is a soft ride that compares with full pneumatic tires, but with much higher capacities than their air-filled cousins.
