Link Caster Steer Trailers
Link Caster Steering – Standard and Medium Duty
Link Caster Steer Trailers (Series 53) are available in QUAD-STEER (four-wheel steer) or DUAL-STEER (two-wheel steer) with accurate tracking/trailing characteristics for optimal precision maneuverability with additional stability for high center of gravity and/or tall loads. Series 53 trailers are available in load capacities from 1,000 lbs. and up. Additional deck sizes, superstructure, extra heavy-duty capacity, or other custom-engineered options available for special applications and requirements.
Link caster steer trailers are an economical alternative to automotive steering, providing the maximum stability and maneuverability with capacities up to 10,000 lbs. Steering is controlled by a towing tongue, with linkage arms connected to specialty constructed swivel caster assemblies. A connecting arm links the front and rear steering assemblies for the four-wheel steer version.
Link Caster Steering – Heavy Duty
Heavy duty link caster steer trailers are primarily used in extremely heavy applications where stability and maneuverability are major considerations. Steering is accomplished through the use of linkage arms connected to machined steel fifth wheel plates which act as heavy-duty swivel casters activated by the towing tongue. The four-wheel steer version uses a connecting arm to link the front steering assembly to rear assembly.
Link steer trailers are designed for use on smooth floors in industrial plants, mills, warehouses, and other applications.
