Hamilton Series MDD Dual Wheel Casters

Series MDD
Maxi-Duty Dual Wheel Casters

Capacity Range: 5,000 – 16,600 lbs.

This dual-wheel series version of the Maxi-Duty Caster addresses the problem of how to restrict overall height while at the same time provide adequate carrying capacity on resilient tread wheels. Dual Wheel Casters also improve stability and swivel more easily than wider-face single wheels because differential action reduces the “scrubbing” effect of soft treads against the floors. The series touts its “precision” feature indicating that both the secondary thrust bearing and the main load bearing are precision-made. HPI™ Swivel Technology is a standard feature in this dual wheel series providing smoother swiveling and longer life.
