Hamilton is proud to introduce the new Mini-Mite caster for those applications that demand an extremely low overall height and an incredibly high capacity. Each standard Mini-Mite caster stands only 6" tall and supports up to 16,000 lbs. If you don't need the extreme capacity but need to go lower, we offer our Son of Mini-Mite which takes the height down to 4 3/4" or down to 4" if your application only requires rigid casters.
Hamilton engineers accomplished this feat using kingpinless swivel construction with an immense 6" diameter raceway. The raceways are CNC-machined and hardened to handle the extra capacity.
The caster is available in single wheel and dual wheel versions. For the highest capacity, select the dual steel wheel. For an alternative to steel, select our Nylast (cast nylon) wheel option. To gain some floor protection but sacrifice some capacity, select the polyurethane option.
Each wheel has four bearings: (2) needle thrust and (2) needle roller. The outside diameter of the ring is 7 1/4" and there are four 1/2-13 holes for mounting 3" x 3" wide. The rig is painted battleship gray enamel.
