We also understand it can feel like information overload when trying to select the right metal track wheels or casters. To determine what type of V-groove caster is right for you, you most importantly should pay attention to:

  1. The overall height between track/ground and equipment that needs to be supported
  2. How much load will need to be carried by the metal track wheels
  3. In what environment (inside or outside) will the caster/wheel will operate in


For instance, Nylon v-track wheels are rust free and can be used in wet environments and zinc plated forged metal track wheels are rust resistant. The type of material will also drive how much load each wheel can carry; with ductile and forged steel supporting the heaviest loads and are most durable.
