End Trucks Available in Larger Sizes
Yale Hoists’ Top-Running, Integral-Axle, Tube-Frame End Trucks are now more versatile than ever. With five wheel sizes, including 115mm, 160mm, 200mm, 260mm and new 305mm, these end trucks are easy to install and maintain and feature:
• Bolted rail sweeps with bumpers that can be quickly removed for wheel inspection

New Standard Bogie Configurations
An economical alternative to larger single trucks, Columbus McKinnon now offers Yale end trucks in standard bogie configurations. With wheel diameters starting at 160mm, our four-wheel end truck design doubles overall load capacity and allows for longer spans. And, because the bogie design disperses the wheel loads across four wheels, you can use smaller rail sizes that are less costly. Bogie end trucks are also easier to install, shipping pre-mounted to girders, and allow for flexible configurations.
