This custom caster will never steer you wrong

Tuesday, Nov 22, 2022

There’s that famous line in “The Big Lebowski” when John Goodman’s character, Walter—in all his resourcefulness—is trying to make a point that he can do just about anything for his friend, The Dude: “You want a toe? I can get you a toe. Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o’clock,” Walter quips.


The point is, there are ways, dude.

That’s kind of how we feel here at Hamilton. Your imagination is the only limit when it comes to our ability to custom design casters. Whatever you need, we do our best to find a way.

So, when a Michigan-based company specializing in automated material handling solutions needed a high-quality caster from Hamilton, but wanted to know if we could help them turn a fixed caster into an oscillating one, we offered “the toe.” Our team got to work with the specs they provided and devised a way to mill holes to the caster’s mounting plate so the customer could easily mount the steering gear to the wheel. The result? We turned a front wheel on their AGVs into a steerable one.

Need a custom caster solution from Hamilton? We’re always ready to put our best foot forward.
