Tool trolleys are ideal for both professional craftspersons and DIY enthusiasts – for transporting large quantities of tools easily from one place to another.
There are numerous different types to suit the various requirements of the user. Whatever type is used, the quality of the castors is of great importance: Poor or unsuitable castors make the trolley difficult to move and therefore practically useless.
Important properties for tool trolley castors
Rollers for tool trolleys run smoothly and be easy to manoeuvre, even on uneven floors. They also have to carry heavy loads. Not just the weight of the trolley, but also the weight of the tools, of course, must be taken into account. Castors must be selected which can withstand the maximum load and still remain easy to steer. To ensure good manoeuvrability of the trolley, swivel castors should be used. These remain easy to steer and control even with frequent changes of direction.
TENTE Supratech and TENTE 3470
TENTE Supratech castors with PJP wheels have a high-quality sheet-steel housing, precision ball bearing and treads made of Supratech. This is a thermoplastic rubber that is gentle to floors and leaves no marks. The tread reduces the starting resistance so that the castor runs smoothly and easily.
The TENTE 3470 was developed especially for tool trolleys used in fire stations, for example. The load capacity of this modern and innovative castor is up to 160 kilograms per castor. This means that the trolley is always ready for action, even when carrying heavy weights. In addition to the standard version, the TENTE 3470 is also available as a swivel castor with a trailing total lock. The castor lock provides extra safety when transporting heavy and bulky equipment.
