solid rubber non-marking black or gray
They are attached to the deck
with a durable and decorative full wrap
around aluminum extrusion that matches
the metal finish of the cart handles.

decorative as well as functional as it
encases all the edges of the deck
covering so the edges are not exposed.

Deck and Chassis Construction
Uniquely designed and engineered these

mounted to a heavy duty powder coated
steel chassis which is available in four

Deluxe models have an additional
aluminum extrusion encased deck edge and
decorative aluminum trim rings at the

components responsible for the longevity
and performance of all platform trucks.
All too often manufacturers cut
back by offering small diameter, or
non-ball bearing, or plastic casters
that reduce the life of the platform
truck, reduce load capacity, create
noise during operation, make them
difficult to operate, and lead to caster
failure putting the trucks out of
service and consuming valuable

Trucks use only the best 8”diameter ball
bearing rubber casters.
