Casters come in three basic styles; standard, heavy-duty, and shock absorbing. Standard and heavy-duty casters come as rigid and swivel, and steel and aluminum variations.
Both aluminum and steel casters have advantages and disadvantages, depending on your needs.
How much weight you need to move, as well as how far you need to move it will determine how heavy duty a caster you will need. Each caster has its own load capacity.
Aerol’s general-purpose, maintenance-free, casters are excellent for handling both direct and side loads, whereas our extra heavy duty casters are designed to handle unusually heavy loads where durability and extra resistance to shock are important.
Our shock-absorbing caster rigs, fully tested under a wide variety of conditions, provide maximum shock absorption under all conditions even when the truck or dolly is empty or nearly empty.
