 CHICAGO – December 2016 – UniCarriers Americas Corporation (UCA) now offers a poly-block Stability Casters option for its WLX Series pallet trucks. The new Stability Casters help provide additional balance when handling taller or off-center loads for steadier operation and more confident load handling.

Features for the new Stability Casters option include:

  • Swivel bearings designed for high strength, longer wear and impact resistance. Tapered roller bearings absorb vertical and horizontal forces to provide smooth swivel action and superior durability.
  • A polyurethane spring block provides softened cushioning for more comfortable operation over small debris or floor variations, with cushioning stiffness increasing in response to higher caster deflection or a higher speed turn.
  • Load wheel with dual, sealed ball bearings to allow the wheel to rotate freely without any binding or interferences.

 Caster assembly durability testing resulted in no signs of significant wear or loss of performance – even after one million severe usage cycles. Major components are zinc-plated for corrosion protection and to provide longer life.

 “The Stability Casters bring a new dimension of reliability and ruggedness to our WLX Series,” said Mark Porwit, director, product management, UniCarriers Americas. “The option is designed to provide operators with greater stability, so they can feel confident with every use.”

 Through innovative features and design, the WLX Series 4,500 lbs. capacity walkie pallet trucks deliver more value and trusted reliability than competitors. Some advantages of the WLX Series include its robust fork assembly, powerful hydraulic system and durable design which give the trucks rugged reliability. A compact frame, precise maneuverability and high/low speed selection switches provide drivers with confidence and control.
