Your jack needs the right type of wheels in order to perform optimally. The selection of the wheels depends on the application and environment in which the jack will be used. We offer different materials for the wheels to suit your needs. You can choose between single or bogie wheels depending on the usage of the jack
The choice of the steer and fork wheels depends on the price, the type of application, usage intensity and the type of surface the jack will be used on.
Bogie wheels are better suited for uneven floors. The load is distributed between several wheels, decreasing the point load and point friction and causing less individual wheel wear.
Note; Bogie wheels are suitable for European pallets or skids only.
Single wheels are preferred on even floors and enables easy turning. The wear on a single wheel, however, is higher. A single wheel is always combined with a climbing wheel at the fork tip for easy handling of pallets on the long side.
Note; These wheels are suitable for Australian pallets.
1)Castor wheel: When the truck turns or passes a bump, pressure increases on one castor wheel as a result of compression of the spring. Thanks to the torsion tube, the other spring will compress by an identical amount. The truck remains stable and will never start to rock and travel like a 'walking duck', a classic phenomenon when spring forces do not interact.
2)Drive wheel: Because of the central placement of the drive wheel, the machine does not pitch when the wheel regains its grip after spinning, e.g. on wet floors and ramps. With a drive wheel placed off-centre, considerable lateral movement can occur in these situations.
3)Fork wheel: Possible to choose between single or bogie fork wheel. Single for easy manoeuvring and positioning for long side handling and Bogie for easy climbing on uneven surfaces and heavy loads.
The choice of the drive and fork wheels depends on the price, the type of application, usage intensity and the type of surface the truck will be used on.
