These monster poly casters glide like butterflies and run like rhinos

Wednesday, Feb 28, 2024

Here’s another one for the “Wow, Hamilton really does make some impervious casters” file.

For more than a decade, we’ve had the honor of working with a longtime caster distributor, supplying them with regular orders of these ginormous Hamilton Ultra Maxi-Duty dual wheel swivel and rigid casters. They’re equipped with not one but two 12-inch diameter x 6-inch-wide polyurethane on steel wheels.

Designed to support a cart transporting gas turbines for a gas pipeline in the Midwest, these babies carry some serious oomph, thanks to their special DuraGlide polyurethane. This particular two-inch tread is made from a special proprietary compound that’s thicker and tougher than your average poly. It also laughs in the face of moisture and is designed to run cooler and faster, making light work of even the toughest terrains, from compacted gravel to warehouse floors. Good thing they roll up to 40 percent easier than most other poly wheels.

And thanks to the magic of physics, a thicker tread means less contact pressure on the bond line. Translation? These casters can handle more weight without breaking a sweat. Plus, with lower psi pressure and reduced stress fatigue, they’re built to last.

No matter what the job throws their way.

Here are the specs:

  • Special Ultra Maxi-Duty dual wheel swivel and rigid casters equipped with 2 each, 12" diameter x 6" wide polyurethane (Flat black tread) on steel wheels
  • Payload:19,000 lbs.
  • Steering Type:Swivel caster
  • Overall height:17-5/8"
