Based on many years of experience in the industry and because we also manufacture a range of superior industrial trucks and trolleys, we believe we know a thing or two about castor and wheel replacement.

If your trucks, trolleys or warehouse cages are bumping and jolting or veering off in the wrong direction, a simple castor wheel replacement often cures the problem.

Tips for Choosing the Right Castor Wheel Replacement Products

 

1. Load-bearing capacity

Your castor wheel or castor assembly needs to be up to specification to support both the weight of the trolley and the anticipated maximum weight of the load it will carry.  Generally, a larger wheel size will be needed to distribute the weight evenly. Weight-bearing castors are often manufactured in metals like cast iron and steel. If you have flooring that might be damaged by bare metal castors, we have a selection of metal wheels and castors that use tyres to soften the impact. The type of bearing also has an impact on load capacity. Wheels with stronger roller bearings are the preferred option.

 

2. Tyre choices for replacement castors and wheels

  • Rubber tyres: make a resilient and smooth-running surface coating for metal wheels. Less likely to damage hard flooring, we can supply wheels and castors fitted with either solid rubber or elastic rubber tyres. Solid rubber tyre wheels mean that you will never suffer the inconvenience of a puncture. Elastic rubber tyres are more yielding to absorb bumps and jolts for smooth performance.

 

  • Plastic and nylon tyres: are fitted on wheels designed for low to medium load-bearing capacity. Long-lasting and reliable, they are lightweight and can stand wet conditions without deteriorating. Using them helps avoid the scuffing stains and flat-spotting that you might get from rubber.

 

  • Polypropylene tyres: Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer that has become popular in the wheel and castor manufacturing industry. Polypropylene is a robust material that is resistant to moisture, oil and chemicals and has a temperature operating window that goes from -20 right up to +60 degrees centigrade. With vibration and noise dampening properties and a high load capacity this is a fantastic multi-purpose material.

 

3. Replacement wheels or replacement castors?

Replacement wheels: When your truck or trolley starts veering off in the wrong direction it is normally due to worn out or slack bearings. The quick and convenient fix is to simply replace the wheels with like-for-like as greasing and replacing bearings can be time-consuming. Castor wheels are cost-effective and can be replaced in minutes without needing to replace the whole castor assembly

Replacement castors: If upon checking your castors you discover they are suffering from the effects of prolonged use and becoming bent and buckled, replacing the whole castor and wheel assembly is your best option. Some equipment utilises a combination of swivel, fixed and brake castors so this is something to check before purchasing your replacements. Most individual castor products will offer these options.
