Aerospace Shock Absorbing Workhorse Casters
Capacity Range: 100 – 1,600 lbs.
The new shock absorbing aerospace (AE) Workhorse Series casters reduce noise, protect cargo and extend caster, wheel and bearing life. This series features the popular 4” x 5” mounting plate and 2” wide wheels. The casters are well suited not only for aerospace applications but also for those heavy-duty material handling challenges that require extra care during transport in industrial environments.
These shock absorbing casters feature Hamilton’s newest Spinfinity® maintenance-free swivel construction and their unibody spring housing provides up to 66% greater spring travel. The new spring design also provides a much wider operating capacity range compared to our standard line. Keep in mind, 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.)
Like all Hamilton forged steel casters, the AE Workhorse Casters are manufactured in Hamilton, Ohio USA. Select from twelve different wheel types. Optional accessories such as swivel locks and wheel brakes are also available. The AE Workhorse Series caster can be easily modified to accommodate many custom specification requirements.
