The Commando swivel caster from Darcor is designed without a kingpin for strength and endurance. Fitted with easy-rolling wheels, this rugged caster offers low starting force, low rolling resistance and smooth, responsive stopping. It suits demanding and continuous applications, protecting loads from damage and workers from strain. The wheel material may be specified according to the application and the floor surface. The 6-in. or 8-in. wheels feature a 2-1/2-in. offset design that prevents chatter at high speed. Featuring a heavy-duty stamped-and-welded construction, the caster incorporates a precision-machined top plate and swivel head. Its offset double-row ball race comes with a grease nipple for easy lubrication. Load capacity per caster ranges from 500 lb to 1,300 lb, depending on wheel size and type.
