  • Designing Trolleys: Trolley Push Effort
    Spring scales are a simple, accurate way to measure push effort. They are very cheap to buy and are available from most hardware stores. Simply clip the hook of the scale over the trolley handle and slowly pull on the scale until the trolley begins to move. If it takes less than 17kg (37.4lb

    Spring scales are a simple, accurate way to measure push effort. They are very cheap to buy and are available from most hardware stores. Simply clip the hook of the scale over the trolley handle and slowly pull on the scale until the trolley begins to move. If it takes less than 17kg (37.4lb
  • Designing Trolleys: Castor Selection
    Spring scales are a simple, accurate way to measure push effort. They are very cheap to buy and are available from most hardware stores. Simply clip the hook of the scale over the trolley handle and slowly pull on the scale until the trolley begins to move. If it takes less than 17kg (37.4lb
  • Casters 101: Maintenance & Fitting
    of push to get a trolley rolling, and about 12kg (26.4lb) to keep it moving. This reduces to 6kg (13.2lb) over long distances. This is the reason that ball bearings and roller bearings are more popular than plain bearings, as they allow more load for the same push effort. Castors will not swivel
