Turn up the heat: new high-temp casters and wheels won’t sweat it

Call ‘em hot wheels for work. Call ‘em casters that won’t cook. Whatever you call ‘em, one thing’s for sure: these babies stay cool under pressure.

Hamilton is proud to introduce our new line of high-heat casters and wheels. Built tough to withstand the rigors of extreme temps, they’re ideal for rolling anywhere you want to beat the heat—especially in autoclaves, product finish systems, food manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries, where heat treating and coating is increasingly becoming the norm.

Organic Farm Grows on Casters

This isn't grandma's greenhouse.

Five years in the making, Original Harvest Farms new 3,000-square-foot operation redefines what an organic farm can be.

It doesn't just run on sun, soil, water and sweat. Hamilton's V-Groove casters, which power a mobile and raised plant bed system, boost the company's growing space by 30 percent.

A square foot is the most expensive part of this highly advanced greenhouse and growing system, said Graham Boothby, co-founder and president of Original Harvest Farms. By putting our beds on casters, we increased our growing area by 500 feet.

Year round, that adds up to thousands of pounds of additional fresh produce from tangy mustard greens to edible flowers and a dozen varieties of lettuce.

Rooted in Efficiency



While the concept might sound complex, it's remarkably simple. In the average greenhouse, aisles divide plant beds so employees can access the produce.

With Hamilton, Original Harvest Farms cuts out what Boothby calls wasted space. If I'm not standing, walking or working in an area at any given moment, I want to be growing there.

Now we simply move a row to the side to create an aisle for us to till soil, plant or harvest, he said. And even though a row weighs about 2 tons, the casters allow two people to move them with ease.

As for why the company didn't just build a bigger greenhouse?

At this size, we're a self sufficient, zero-net energy operation, he said. If we added just a few hundred feet, we'd increase our construction costs, carbon footprint, and the amount of electricity we’d need to offset.

With the first building up and running, Original Harvest Farms is already looking to the future.

We're planning expansions to Brooklyn, Chicago and Detroit, said Boothby. And you can bet Hamilton's part of our growth plan.

25-Foot Hamilton Trailer Lays the Hammer Down

The oil industry is booming with Hamilton and Frank’s International on the pipelines.

A world leader in oilfield services, Frank’s chose us to build a 25-foot-long trailer to haul diesel and hydraulic hammers. They’re used to drive pipe into the ground as the first stage of new oil well installations.

“Because the hammers are longer than they are wide, we couldn’t load them onto forklifts to carry them into the maintenance area of the workshop bay,” said Ray Barrileaux, assistant operations manager at Frank’s International.

While the company builds a brand-new facility, it currently operates in a temporary shop with height restrictions. Our extra-long trailer bypasses those height constraints by carting hammers in and out of the work bay.

“We weren’t about to let a few low ceilings sink our operation,” said Barrileaux. “With Hamilton’s help, we’re able to help our customers keep the oil flowing.”

Tech Specs

  • All steel, caster-steer trailer
  • Size: 72” wide by 300” long with 18” deck height
  • Load capacity: 40,000 pounds
  • Running gear: Two dual-wheel swivel casters with 12” by 4” Superlast polyurethane wheels; four dual-mounted, 15” by 9” press-on polyurethane wheels
  • Eight lashing rings evenly spaced along each frame
  • Loop-type towing tongue
