A heavy duty caster is typically used in material handling or construction applications. Typically attached to the bottom of a cart, dollies, or other equipment, a heavy duty caster offers better support than a standard flanged wheel. In addition, the larger diameter allows the caster to increase the load capacity of the cart. This increases the efficiency of the work environment.
