Regularly check castor wheels for wear and damage to avoid costly replacement. Regular checks ensure that the integrity of the caster is not compromised, and it helps to replace damaged wheels before they cause more problems. Casters should be inspected at least monthly, and they should be lubricated on a regular basis.

How do spring loaded castors work?

A caster consists of a wheel and a mounting mechanism. They make it easier to move objects and loads, and are used in many different applications. They come in different materials, wheel diameters, tread widths, and load ratings, and vary in overall height. They are used on many types of equipment, from hand trucks to large industrial machinery.

Whether you use casters for wheels for tables, carts, or pallet jacks, you need to choose the right kind for your needs. The right casters should be easy to clean, durable, and able to move large loads. Choose polyurethane or rubber casters for better wear and abrasion resistance. Choose a type of caster that can withstand a variety of temperatures, chemicals, and grease.

There are two primary types of casters: stem and plate-mount. Stem-mount casters are easier to remove than plate-mount casters, but require special mounting options. Plate-mount casters are usually more rigid, while stem-mounted casters are more versatile and can be used in many different applications.
