Algood Blog: Product Spotlight: 5000 Series

A Caster with Countless Configurations


Our 5000 Series are the most versatile casters we make. They come with an incredible array of options, including plates, stems, brakes, wheels and finishes. In addition, this is a caster that can be configured for just about any application.


With a capacity of 450 lbs., the 5000 Series can handle an overall equipment load of more than 1,800 lbs. It comes in 3”, 4”, 5” and 6” diameters and can accommodate tread widths of both 1-1/4” and 1-1/2”. There are at least six different plate options and it’s also available as a bolt hole. A wide range of stem options includes round, threaded, both round and square expandable as well as metric sizes.

These versatile casters can be ordered with over a dozen wheel options including our Envirothane™ and ProTech™ as well as the Lava™ for high-temp applications. In addition, you can get it with a double lock brake (DLB), top lock brake (TLB) or our trademarked iLock™ precision directional and wheel lock brake. There are numerous bearing choices and the caster can be finished in black (flat, gloss, ionic), brass, chrome, yellow chromate or the standard zinc finish. Thread guards are also available.

These versatile casters are manufactured in our fully integrated facility in Toronto. That means you get reasonable lead times, dependable delivery dates and guaranteed quality backed by our 3-year No-Excuse Warranty.

NSF Approved

Adding to all of that, the 5000 is NSF-Approved, making it perfect for healthcare, pharmaceutical, food processing, high-tech and other clean environments. These casters are moisture-resistant and maintenance-free. They can be used in a wide variety of applications including mobile warehousing equipment, housekeeping & linen carts, material handling equipment, bakery equipment and store fixtures.
