DRIVE CASTER® Motorized Casters

DRIVE CASTER® - The Industry’s First Motorized Caster Wheel

The DRIVE CASTER® is a self-contained motorized caster unit that integrates both the caster and the motor. It’s easy to install, even on existing equipment.

The DRIVE CASTER® is a first-of-its-kind, motorized caster designed to move tons easily and efficiently. With DRIVE CASTER® technology, a single operator can easily start, maneuver, and stop a load using only a control panel and tank steering. The DRIVE CASTER® also has the flexibility to integrate into various applications, above and beyond industrial carts and racks, such as dollies, moving walls, turntables, platforms, machinery and more.


For traditional load movement, each DRIVE CASTER® supports 2000 pounds. However, when you opt to use a DRIVE CASTER® for towing, the capacity is a whopping 5000 pounds per powered caster – add another DRIVE CASTER® and double the weight to 10,000 pounds. A 1/2hp electric motor powers this motor-driven caster wheel and is also available in other configurations for added versatility, including the Drive Cart.

Towing loads from one place to the next takes time and resources, and without the right casters for the job, you may be at risk of injury. Our innovative motorized DRIVE CASTER® technology was designed to simplify the process by reducing risk, enhancing productivity, and reducing costs to improve profitability.

The DRIVE CASTER® is also available in a Drive Cart to eliminate manual pushing and pulling and can move up to 10,000 lbs. A major benefit of the Drive Cart is the motor can be disengaged so the cart can be utilized at higher speeds with a tugger or AGV. This makes it easy to maneuver from the tugger train to the work area, eliminating a major constraint in material transport.
