Saving Lives with Scaffolding Casters

Scaffolding casters are crucial to ensuring workplace safety. They enable scaffolding to move freely on uncertain outdoor surfaces, protecting the lives of workers at dangerous heights. With upcoming construction and renovation projects, it’s important to check existing casters for wear and tear and replace those that are worn.

Our 8900 series scaffolding caster prioritizes safety. It features a high-quality dual-locking system that engages the wheel tread and swivel section. The 1-3/8” x 4” industry standard round stem includes a cross-drilled hole that allows the stem to be locked in the scaffolding’s tubing.

The 8900 series has a corrosion-resistant bright zinc finish that is ideal for outdoor use. It also comes with a Moldon Rubber wheel that can easily navigate uneven outdoor surfaces. Diameters of 6” and 8” are available, with capacities of up to 800 lbs.

Steel roller bearings with drilled hardened steel spanner bushing and plastic side washers are standard. Options for the 8900 series include a range of bearings. It can also be equipped with other wheels to accommodate scaffolding that is being used indoors.

Don’t take any chances, make sure to check and order scaffolding casters now. To discuss your needs, get in touch with your local Algood representative or a member of our customer service team.

Product Spotlight: Cyclone Series - The Kingpinless Heavyweight Champion

This Caster is a Heavyweight Champion

Our kingpinless, heavy-duty Cyclone™ Series features our proprietary TwinTrack™ head. With its double raceway design, the TwinTrack enhances the capacity, manoeuvrability, stability and durability of the Cyclone.

Algood Blog: Product Spotlight: Forged Steel Wheels

Forged Steel Wheels

These are the strongest wheels we sell. They are drop forged from ASTM 1045 high-carbon steel and are practically indestructible. With a maximum capacity of 20,000 lbs, there is almost no payload that forged steel wheels won’t bear.

Algood_Renders-Forged_Steel-W-96124-FS

Forged steel is an alloy of carbon and iron that is compressed under extreme pressure to make a very hard and strong substance.

In the forging process heat or force is applied to steel billets or ingots, causing the material to change shape while in a solid state. The resulting highly compressed material is exceptionally durable.

Forged steel is not porous, has tensile strength of 60,000 PSI and adapts extremely well to surface variations. All of that means these wheels are virtually failure-free. Most often used with our heavy-duty Kingpinless casters, they are available in 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” diameters.

Forged steel wheels come with a variety of bearing options for optimal performance at different applications. The standard bore is 1-1/4” but 3/4” and 1” options are possible. Here is the full range of specs:

These wheels are extremely hard with a durometer of Rockwell B (80 – 90). That, along with their impressive strength-to-weight ratio, leads to reduced surface friction and allows for easier push/pull. They are used for highly demanding applications including factory use, waste bins, platform trucks, stock trucks and heavy material handling. Also, with a temperature rating that tops out at 1,300ºF, they can be used in bakeries, autoclaves and other extreme heat environments.

Product Spotlight: MIGHTY MAXX

Low Profile. High Capacity.

Our Mighty Maxx™ caster packs a punch while keeping a very low profile. It combines impressively low overall height of 3 5/8” with an equally impressive 1,750 lbs. of capacity.

Algood-Caster-MIGHTY_MAXX-S65253-B29F-RXW2-RB

The Mighty Maxx™ has been engineered for maximum strength. It is manufactured using a work-hardened proprietary steel composition that adds both durability and longevity. A stabilizer added to the front of the yoke strengthens the caster, creating front-to-rear load balance and preventing the caster from failing when subjected to shock loads. In addition, the caster comes with a rollover emboss top plate that features a deep draw curl to add capacity and prevent bending. Even better, the plate is fastened with an M8 nut for quick assembly.

Mighty Maxx comes with dual 2-3/8” x 1-3/8” RollX™ wheels equipped with roller bearings. Made from a proprietary thermoplastic nylon glass fill material, RollX wheels require minimum effort to roll with heavy loads. They withstand hard impacts, are non-marking, do not absorb water and are resistant to most chemicals, solvents, gases, acids and steam cleaning.

Two wheels keeps a low profile and adds capacity and make the caster easier to maneuver. When turning, one wheel pivots, making it almost effortless to navigate curves and corners.

The Mighty Maxx is finished using corrosion resistant zinc with a yoke and raceway that are heat treated. It is available with a thumb screw brake (TSB) and you can order matching rigid casters.

Produced right here in our manufacturing facility just outside Toronto, this caster is a model of North American design and ingenuity. It’s available with reasonable lead times, dependable delivery dates and is backed by our 3-year No-Excuse Warranty.
