Our unique double and triple-wheel Kingpinless (KP) casters represent an important new solution for a wide variety of heavy duty applications. Reasonably priced multi-wheel KP casters from Darcor widely outdistance their heavy duty single-wheel competition. Darcor delivers higher load capacity, sharply lower starting and swivelling forces, a choice of wheel sizes and superior materials, and many other advantages.

If your heavy duty operations have been compromised by high push-pull forces (and resulting on-the-job injuries), noisy wheels, premature caster failure and more, a better answer is now at hand with Darcor's attractively priced multi-wheel KP casters. In short, heavy duty just got much easier and cost effective.

The Darcor KP dual and triple-wheel caster advantages:

  • Reduced starting, rolling and swiveling forces.
    Much easier movement means fewer workplace injuries and significantly greater productivity.
  • Greater swivel offset for better swiveling forces.
    Better performance under loads up to 6,000 lbs.
  • Choice of wheel configuration, size and type.
    Depending on the operating environment, pick dual or triple wheels in six or eight inch diameter--in Solid Elastomer (SE), for normal conditions, or Neoprene (D) for uneven floor surfaces and debris.
  • Bigger load capacity. Lower overall height.
    In applications where height is an issue, Darcor's KP casters deliver a half-inch height advantage for eight inch-wheels, and 2.5 inches of clearance for six-inch wheels.
  • Longer lasting under the toughest conditions.
    Darcor casters are built and tested to live longer. The result: lower financial and environmental cost.

DARCOR triple KP with Solid Elastomer (SE) wheels: the best overall heavy duty solution.

Test conditions: Load: 4000 lbs; Concrete floor; Temp: 19°C; Humidity: 75%

DARCOR triple KP with Neoprene (D) wheels: the best solution for uneven floors and debris.

Overall, testing results establish Darcor's superior heavy duty performance:

  • Darcor's eight-inch triple PSE wheel KP caster (31-KP3408-PSE) was the best performer when compared to our own single-wheel heavy duty solution (8-808-PSE) and to our closest competitors' heavy duty casters.
  • Under a 4,000 lb weight load, Darcor's eight-inch triple-wheel KP caster (31-KP3408-PSE) required less than half the starting and swiveling force of our closest competitor's eight inch single-wheel heavy duty casters.
  • While Darcor's Solid Elastomer (SE) triple wheel KP caster tested as the best overall performer. Darcor's Neoprene (D) triple wheel KP caster also handily outperformed the competition.
  • Tests at 2,000 and 6,000 lbs. demonstrated similar superior performance using our triple-wheel KP caster.
  • For loads less than 2,000 lbs., Darcor also offers double-wheel KP casters (with six or eight-inch wheels) offering similar performance advantages.
