Do you work out the weight loading for jacking castors the same as normal castors?

June 27th, 2024

No. BIL jacking castors are rated differently to other castors. They are designed to lift a load off of the floor and therefore each castor is liable to carry half of the total load. To avoid any potential overloading we advise that each BIL jacking castor should have a load capacity of at least 50% of overall load capacity. You can work this out by adding the weight of the trolley to the maximum load and then dividing the total load by 2 to give the capacity of each jacking castor.
