Casters for Agriculture Articles and Case Studies

The CC Nylex is Often the Best Push/Pull Solution of All Our Products

Many of our clients don’t even think about casters until there has been a problem. In one instance, Case New Holland (CNH) in Grand Island Nebraska was more proactive and decided to begin an initiative to improve all aspects of its production line, specifically in the areas of efficiency and ergonomics. We partnered with CNH to help them achieve their goals in many areas of their large facility.

How the CC Stark Has Performed for Case New Holland

Have you ever bought a product that claimed to be durable and high-performing, but then you found out how fragile and poor-quality it was? We’ve seen it dozens of times within the caster industry. The casters look nice, you put them on your carts, but you find that they fail after less than a year. For most of our clients, they have to have two qualities: durability and versatility. Most of our casters have these qualities, but each caster normally has a specific strength. Case New Holland Grand Island needed a caster that was durable, versatile, and able to handle speed with heavy weight. Learn how Caster Connection's recommended solution met those demands.

Case New Holland (CNH) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium agricultural equipment. To produce this equipment, they have a robust manufacturing operation that they are constantly trying to improve. CNH Nebraska moves tens of thousands of parts each month, moving throughout main buildings and from one building to another. This means that they drive both indoors and outdoors hundreds of times each day. Because they move so many parts indoors and outdoors, they have hundreds of carts with thousands of casters. In order to maintain these casters and carts, CNH has several employees who repair carts continuously full-time.
