Tilting Utility Skates - Swivel
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.
Steel Rollers…the best choice for all purpose moving. Steel Rollers provide maximum durability and can handle extended resting loads and even permanent installation. They excel in applications with rough or uneven floors. They are the ultimate workhorse.

Polyurethane Coated Rollers…the ideal choice for floors and rolling surfaces that require maximum protection. Rolling surfaces, such as epoxy coated floors, are common in aerospace facilities, military installations and more, but the loads don’t get any lighter. To address this, our polyurethane coated rollers were researched and developed to move the heaviest loads with floor protection in mind. Not recommended for extended resting loads or on rough and debris riddled rolling surfaces.
