Colson Caster Corporation has added a new 6” Triumph™ Wheel to its growing product offerings as an option for manufacturing environments where high capacity loads need to be moved with non-marking and skid resistant ease.The introduction is accompanied by sale pricing for both models of the Triumph Wheel, the new 6” and the existing 8” version, with load capacities up to 900 and 1200 lbs per wheel, respectively.“This new Triumph Wheel has been requested by customers where the attributes are needed but the loads are lighter,” said Brian Crain, product manager for Colson. “This wheel gives the end user a more cost effective alternative to meet their needs.”With the MPH on the end still standing for speed, with smooth and silent rolling manageability, Colson’s new 6” Triumph Wheel is available in two models with 80 and 95 Shore A durometer polyurethane tread.  The non-marking, polyurethane wheels, constructed in red and blue, are equipped with a light-weight aluminum core and Round tread for managing obstructions and enhanced swivel over other flat tread units. Like its bigger brother, the new 6” model is built to resist damage from chemicals, acids, oils, and other caustic substances, and can also handle temperatures ranging from –40 degrees to 180 degrees. Targeted applications and markets for the sale priced Triumph category include tow line and automotive manufacturing sites among others, where load capacity and ergonomic performance are critical.
