Keeping people safe is obviously a top goal of any organization, which is why we've curated a mix of caster wheels for safety in manual push/pull, tow lines, and other kinds of movement.
Manually-pushed caster wheels are used in an enormous variety of environments and applications. Some examples are high-heat, chemical, moisture, heavy-weight, light-weight, and ergonomic applications. When choosing a caster for manual applications, you have a lot of options.
In all cases, it is better if the caster wheel improves push/pull, i.e., makes it easier to push and pull. It is better if you can improve ergonomics, but at times high-heat or moisture resistance will be even more important.
Certain caster wheels are extremely well suited for both push/pull and towline applications, so if you have a tugger train that allows you to easily transport your carts by hand, make sure that your casters are not only great for towlines but also excellent for ergonomic applications. With the right towline caster, you’ll be able to transport more weight faster, which will allow you to be much more productive.
