Industrial equipment tires

When an industry-leading farm equipment manufacturer faced significant ergonomic issues that were jeopardizing the safety of their workers and hampering productivity, they knew they needed a reliable solution. In their quest for assistance, they turned to the experts at Caster Connection, a renowned provider of innovative caster solutions for various industries.

These carts were fitted with generic kingpin casters that were failing on the job because they couldn’t handle the loadbearing and maneuverability requirements. Their subpar ergonomic performance was becoming a safety concern, especially when turning carts and during the initial push or pull. These concerns were only amplified by the need for frequent maintenance to prevent caster failure and diminishing performance.

This situation was unique because these carts didn’t have the clearance to utilize an extended swivel lead caster, which is usually the most effective and efficient way of reducing ergonomic push/pull. Because increasing the wheel size or extending the length of the swivel lead was not an option in this scenario, it was clear that they would need to consult with a caster expert, so the client contacted Caster Connection.
