Swivel Top Tilt-Type Utility Skates were designed to be combined with their rigid top counterparts as the lead dollies for turning applications. With their excellent maneuverability, they are also often used separately for heavy loads requiring full directional control. Each swivel top skate has a friction plate between the top frame of the dolly and bottom surface of the swivel plate to reduce swimming under load and eliminating the need for a locking mechanism. Swivel tops are easily removable with an hex key wrench for straight line moving applications without the need to purchase additional skates.
With the exception of some of the lighter duty models, each skate is equipped with two 3-1/2″ Ø center support rollers and two 3-1/4″ Ø lead and rear rollers, one on each end. This provides a tilting axis which allows for exceptional turning and easier moving over uneven floors, welds, tracks, gaps, up ramps and more.
