Wheels: Visually inspect the wheels for wear. The poor rotation of the wheels is related to debris such as fine red and rope. The anti-wrap cover can block the winding of these debris. Too loose or too tight caster wheel are another factor. Replace broken wheels to avoid unstable rotation. After checking and replacing the wheels, make sure that the wheel shaft is tightened with lock washers and nuts. Because loose axles will cause the spokes and brackets to rub and become stuck. Replacement wheels and bearings should be prepared to avoid loss of production.


Lubrication: Add lubricating oil regularly, the pallet truck caster wheel and movable bearings can be used for a long time. Applying grease to the friction area of the wheel shaft, seal ring and roller bearing can reduce friction and make the rotation more flexible. Under normal circumstances, lubricate every six months. The wheels should be lubricated after the car is cleaned every month.


Users are responsible for the proper maintenance and operation of manual hydraulic pallet truck caster wheel. To avoid improper use or equipment, there are overloads, especially heavy on the car. High-speed driving on rough roads or heavy objects hitting the wheels can cause wheel or equipment damage. Therefore, please check regularly: brackets and fasteners: tighten loose axles and nuts and check the weld or support plate for damage. Overload or impact can cause the bracket to twist. The twisted bracket makes the heavy load lean on the individual wheels and cause the wheels to fail prematurely. If it is a caster wheel type caster wheel, tighten the nut or securely rivet and ensure that the equipment mounting bracket is not bent and the insert is installed correctly. Use lock nuts or lock washers when installing caster wheel. The installation of the expansion plug caster wheel must ensure that the plug is firmly installed in the casing.
