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.
Which tyres do I need?
You can find information about which tyres you need on the type plate behind the drawbar of your lift truck. If this is no longer legible or no longer present, measure your old lift truck fork rollers to determine the appropriate 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.
