A Plus Warehouse Provides American Made Casters for Heavy Duty Material Handling

National Material Handling Dealer, A Plus Warehouse, Sells the Most Heavy Duty Casters Available on the Market, Provides Caster Maintenance Tips

LYNN, MA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2007) - Casters could possibly be the most integral parts of a material handling system, and many business owners don't know it! A Plus Warehouse, which carries the most heavy duty, American made casters for all material handling equipment, has helpful suggestions on how to use and maintain casters in material handling companies.

"Any product manufactured that needs to roll requires casters, and any rolling item requiring periodic maintenance requires after-market casters as well," said Ed Stairman, president of A Plus Warehouse. "This includes most material handling equipment. Platform trucks are a staple of material handling dealers, and platform trucks and carts move about on casters. We sell these items and provide them all with heavy duty, American made casters ranging in size from 4 inches to 12 inches in diameter."

Other products that use casters include expanding conveyors, mobile benches, mobile cabinets and warehouse ladders. Warehouse ladders, unlike traditional handyman ladders, have a wheeled base and use casters so they can easily be placed anywhere within a materials handling facility.

Ensuring a long life for casters is easy if they include zerk fittings. "Most of the casters at A Plus Warehouse have zerk fittings, which enable grease to be shot directly through a hollow axle into the bearing, or into the ball ring in the caster plate. This makes maintenance of your casters quick and easy," said Stairman.

Casters from A Plus Warehouse can carry capacities from 50 pounds to over 10,000 pounds and can be used in many industries including aviation manufacture. To learn more about heavy duty, American made casters from A Plus Warehouse, call 800-209-8798 or visit
