Lift truck rol­lers / fork rollers

Buy fork rol­lers / pal­let truck rol­lers at Rol­len­shop Nr. 1

For a hand pal­let truck to be used opti­mal­ly, it needs the right tyres. The choice of wheels depends pri­ma­ri­ly on the area of appli­ca­ti­on and the ope­ra­ting con­di­ti­ons in which it is to be used. To cover all appli­ca­ti­ons, we offer swi­vel wheels, sin­gle fork rol­lers and tan­dem fork rol­lers in dif­fe­rent materials.

Various fork rollers

On the mar­ket you can get lift trucks of high qua­li­ty and robust­ness. But with dai­ly use under hard con­di­ti­ons and high loads, the tyres of the indus­tri­al truck wear out. You will noti­ce this, for exam­p­le, when the pal­let truck makes noi­se when moving, is har­der to mano­eu­vre or requi­res more force. It is usual­ly suf­fi­ci­ent to replace the pal­let truck rol­lers. You can easi­ly do this yours­elf with com­mon tools.

The right mate­ri­al for your pal­let truck rollers

The choice of mate­ri­al for the cas­tors and fork rol­lers of a hand pal­let truck is deter­mi­ned by the pri­ce, the type of use, the inten­si­ty of use and the sur­face con­di­ti­on of the floor.

If the flo­or or envi­ron­men­tal con­di­ti­ons on which you use your indus­tri­al truck chan­ge, it often makes sen­se to replace the cas­tors for the lift truck. Not every rol­ler is sui­ta­ble for every flo­or. In the No. 1 cas­tor shop you can get repla­ce­ments made of various materials:

Poly­ure­tha­ne (PU)

  • Enables a low noi­se level
  • Light wal­king makes pul­ling hea­vy loads a litt­le more difficult
  • Sui­ta­ble for uni­ver­sal use

Poly­ure­tha­ne is a par­ti­cu­lar­ly robust and low-wear pla­s­tic with a long ser­vice life. The rol­lers are resistant to oils, grea­ses and many acids and alka­lis. Lift truck fork rol­lers made of this mate­ri­al are cha­rac­te­ri­sed by their smooth run­ning and low rol­ling resis­tance. They are shock absor­bing, lea­ve no marks and are very resi­li­ent. They are sui­ta­ble for hard and sen­si­ti­ve flo­ors, for exam­p­le asphalt, screed, tiles, par­quet or PVC, and can be used at tem­pe­ra­tures bet­ween ‑20 and +80 °C.


Poly­ami­de is unbre­aka­ble at hig­her loads, has a low rol­ling resis­tance and a tem­pe­ra­tu­re resis­tance of ‑40° C to + 90° C.

Wheels and cas­tors for elec­tric pal­let trucks

Sup­port wheels

When an elec­tric pal­let truck pas­ses a bump, the pres­su­re on the sup­port wheel increa­ses as a result of the pres­su­re on the sus­pen­si­on. The tor­si­on bar ensu­res that the same pres­su­re is exer­ted on the sus­pen­si­on on the other side of the vehic­le. The lift truck remains sta­ble and does not sway.

Dri­ve wheel

By pla­cing the dri­ve wheel on the cent­re line of the imple­ment, the lift truck will not be sub­jec­ted to late­ral moments when the dri­ve wheel regains its grip after spin­ning (for exam­p­le, on wet ground or on a slo­pe). With an off-cent­re dri­ve wheel, con­sidera­ble side­ways move­ment can throw the truck off track in the­se situations.

Fork rol­lers

You can choo­se bet­ween sin­gle and tan­dem fork rol­lers. The sin­gle fork rol­lers are excel­lent for easy mano­eu­vring and posi­tio­ning of the elec­tric pal­let truck, while the tan­dem fork rol­lers are bet­ter sui­ted for trans­port­ing hea­vy loads and for use on uneven floors.

Available wheel mate­ri­als for elec­tric pal­let truck

The choice of mate­ri­al for the wheels and fork rol­lers of an elec­tric pal­let truck is also deter­mi­ned by the pri­ce, the type of use, the inten­si­ty of use and the sur­face con­di­ti­on of the floor.


  • Inex­pen­si­ve alter­na­ti­ve, deve­lo­ped for less inten­si­ve applications
  • Sui­ta­ble for uni­ver­sal use

Sin­gle fork rol­lers are pre­fer­a­b­ly used on level flo­ors and allow easy mano­eu­vring. The wear on the rol­lers is hig­her than with tan­dem fork rol­lers. The white clim­bing rol­ler faci­li­ta­tes dri­ving into pal­lets with flo­or supports.

Lift truck rol­lers in the right size

When choo­sing the right tyres, it is not only the right mate­ri­al that is important so that you can move your loads easi­ly and com­for­ta­b­ly. The size of the rol­lers must also fit. You can find infor­ma­ti­on about which tyres you need on the type pla­te behind the draw­bar of your pal­let truck. If this is no lon­ger legi­ble or pre­sent, mea­su­re your old pal­let truck fork rol­lers to deter­mi­ne the right model. You will need the fol­lo­wing measurements:

  • Wheel dia­me­ter
  • Wheel width
  • Instal­la­ti­on dimension
  • Axle dia­me­ter

The­se four fac­tors are an if-then sel­ec­tion. For exam­p­le, as soon as you deci­de on a requi­red rol­ler dia­me­ter (which must match the respec­ti­ve lift truck), we auto­ma­ti­cal­ly high­light the asso­cia­ted opti­mum or pos­si­ble other fac­tors. In this way, you can also see whe­ther the rol­ler you have sel­ec­ted has the load capa­ci­ty you ulti­m­ate­ly require.

For many makes we have saved the exact dimen­si­ons in our file, so that we can alre­a­dy deter­mi­ne the right cas­tor for you by spe­ci­fy­ing the lift truck type.

Load capa­ci­ty

Fork rol­lers must car­ry very high loads with an extre­me­ly small wheel Ø. Bea­rings and linings are the­r­e­fo­re desi­gned to a par­ti­cu­lar­ly high standard.

The neces­sa­ry load capa­ci­ty of an indi­vi­du­al rol­ler natu­ral­ly refers to the nomi­nal load capa­ci­ty of the respec­ti­ve lift truck. Con­sult the load capa­ci­ty infor­ma­ti­on on the type plate.

How can I chan­ge pal­let truck rollers?

Thanks to the high-qua­li­ty and robust manu­fac­tu­ring, it can take years befo­re a cas­tor needs to be repla­ced. Howe­ver, dama­ged, worn or other­wi­se impai­red rol­lers for lift trucks must be repla­ced. In addi­ti­on, the rol­lers are part of the annu­al inspec­tion pre­scri­bed by DGUV V 68. A sui­ta­ble employee must be used for this inspec­tion and replacement.

If you only want to chan­ge the rol­lers on a pal­let truck, this is usual­ly no pro­blem and may be imple­men­ted by any expe­ri­en­ced employee. To do this, you need the appro­pria­te repla­ce­ment rol­lers, the rest is usual­ly self-expl­ana­to­ry on the device.

You only have to make sure that the pal­let truck is secu­red when chan­ging rol­lers and that it must then be tho­rough­ly che­cked again for its sui­ta­bi­li­ty for use. This visu­al inspec­tion can be car­ri­ed out by every user and is a dai­ly duty under occu­pa­tio­nal health and safe­ty law.

We would be plea­sed to advi­se you per­so­nal­ly on the sel­ec­tion of fork rol­lers / pal­let truck rol­lers and pro­vi­de you with fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on our exten­si­ve ran­ge for trans­port in the warehouse and in the factory.

You are not sure which rol­lers you need for your pal­let truck? We will be hap­py to advi­se you on choo­sing the opti­mum wheels and cas­tors for your pal­let truck / pal­let truck.
