Selecting the correct caster for your application is very important - the right caster will ensure that rolling vehicles and mobile equipment move easily and can be maneuvered without causing worker injury or equipment damage. Factors to take into consideration when choosing a caster include vehicle or equipment type, maneuverability requirements, load weight, floor type, and operating conditions.
"Monroe is ready to help you determine which type of caster best suits your needs," stated Dave Scharrer, General Manager. "We offer casters constructed of different types of steel with a variety of finishes and wheel types - from light duty casters for a mail cart wheeled over carpet to heavy duty ľ-inch thick zinc-plated steel versions for equipment used in extreme temperature, corrosive, and washdown environments."
