Tough wheel can handle continuous use

Available as a special order, the SX wheel from Darcor offers low rolling resistance over a wide spectrum of weight capacity. It provides the same ergonomic design as the SE wheel at loads of up to one ton per wheel, the highest weight capacity available in a soft, shock-absorbing, solid elastomer wheel. The wheel withstands punishing and continuous-use environments, such as towlines and automatic guided vehicles. In addition, it offers shock absorption, chemical resistance, easy swivelling and zero-maintenance precision bearings as standard.
