In today’s day and age, the world revolves around the wheel. You will find some type of wheel in many obvious and not so obvious places.
The obvious ones will be attached onto things such as vehicles (Cars, boats, planes, bikes, trolleys etc.), and the not so obvious in appliances such as washing machines, electric toothbrushes and computer hardware.
Many millennia ago the wheel had not yet been invented.
Since the invention of the wheel we have seen the rise of many arts and crafts, along with eased workloads and the use of hundreds, if not thousands, of ancient and modern inventions.
We now have the ability to capture and harness the forces of gravity, friction and speed.
As an example, a ship will use a big wheel to steer itself around.
The wheel is normally rather large with long and thick spokes as support.
The reason the wheel is fitted with spokes and not of a solid design is to reduce the weight of the wheel and have it such that it can still be turned and controlled with relative ease.
If you are turning a big wheel of this design it makes the middle part that would normally be connected to the axle turn at a slower rate but at the same generating a greater force. The greater the size of the steering wheel, the greater the force or torque it will generate with less inputted energy.
Why is the wheel so important to us?
If you ask the people of today they will most probably tell you that in order to use a wheel you will need a road. This however is contrary to why the original wheels were first used.
The real reason that wheels had such a big impact was actually for the opposite reason. They were best used when there were no clean and smooth roads to for any kind of reliable transportation.
Long before these carts and wagons were used, the normal method of transportation of goods and persons would have been by animal.
This method would have consisted of a sledge or moving platform pulled along by donkeys, wolves, dogs or animals of this nature.
The biggest problem that was encountered by using sledges was friction which slowed and tired out the animals.
This is why the wheel was such an important discovery and posed as one of the greatest assets to humans throughout history.
It was found that by adding wheels to sledges and carts you almost completed removed the force of friction and this made moving any kind of load much easier than dragging it along the ground. The only friction left to battle against was that where the wheel met the axle.
The only decision left to make was the size of trolley wheels you needed on your particular cart or sledge, following the rule which states, the bigger the wheel, the easier it is to turn.
As we have been getting regular questions about maintaining the well being of your trolley wheels and sack truck wheels, we have decided to write a brief blog about this subject.
The most common problem we hear about is the puncturing of trolley wheels.This will almost always happen if you have been using your trolleys and sack trucks in littered areas.
By ‘littered’ we just mean an area that has a high chance of having either loose debris on the floor or having any number of screws and nails lying about.
Being only human, we understand that not everyone will use their sack barrows with their eyes glued to the floor, just in case they might go over a nail.
The reality is that most people will not check around their working area until it is too late and thus, the end result being..?
…Having your trolley wheels and sack truck wheels left totally punctured!
Now how can you fix this problem?
There are two easy ways of preventing this from happening.
The first way takes a little longer than the second and requires you to do some thinking. This will however prevent you from damaging and puncturing your trolley wheels and sack truck wheels.
Before you start moving your trolleys, sack trucks and sack barrows, make sure your pneumatic trolley wheels (air filled trolley wheels) are in good condition and the trolley itself is safe to use.
When you are ready to go, decide the route you wish to take.
Once you have plotted this route, the next part involves you first walking to your destination.
This is where you need to put your thinking cap on. While walking, start making an assessment of the area you will be taking your trolleys or sack trucks through.
Be sure to take note of any debris, nails, screws or any other sharp objects that may be lying around.
Once you have completed your assessment and you are sure the area is safe and secure, you may proceed with your task at hand knowing your sack truck wheels and trolley wheels will not be punctured!
The second way around the problem of punctured tyres is simply to buy puncture proof wheels!
These are made of solid but slightly cushioned foam which can never be punctured as there is no air or inner tube inside them.
Hope this helped!

Today we are very happy to announce the arrival of our new sack truck wheels!
This means a lot more stock, a lot more variety and a lot more choice in many different sizes and types of trolley wheels.
We have eagerly awaited this delivery of stock and at last, it is here!
We have worked very closely with our supplier to ensure the quality of these new wheels is of the best and highest standard.
We have made minor tweaks to many parts of the wheels themselves including, strengthening the bearings, creating an airtight tyre mold to increase the life span and increasing the gauge of steel used to produce the metal hubs.
Along with that, we have released an entire new range which will be detailed below:
- 10” Rubber Wheel with Plastic Hub (25.4mm bore)
- 10” Pneumatic Wheel with Metal Hub (16mm and 20mm bore)
- 10” Pneumatic Wheel with Plastic Hub (25.4mm bore)
- 10” Puncture Proof Wheel with Metal Hub (16mm and 20mm bore)
- 10” Puncture Proof Wheel with Plastic Hub (25.mm bore)
- 8” Rubber Wheel with Plastic Hub (25.4mm bore)
- 6” Rubber Wheel with Metal Hub (20mm bore)
- Starlock Axle Fasteners – 25.4mm, 20mm, 16mm and 12.7mm
So with these new sack truck and trolley wheels we are hoping to cater for a bigger audience and be able to solve any problems our potential customers might have.
Along with this new product line, we will also soon be stocking axle/wheel spacers and reducing bushes for the 25.4mm bore sized wheels.
We hope you will join us in 2016.

The Christmas and New Year’s festivities have now sadly come to an end.
I wonder how many people received sack truck wheels as gifts?

The question we ask is this:
Did you achieve all the goals you planned for 2015?
Did you do everything you wanted to?
I’m sure 99% of all of us can answer an honest ‘No’.
Even little things like getting your car cleaned or even replacing your worn out sack truck wheels at work.
They are easily overseen as minor details but can have a massive impact on your day to day life.
For example, having a clean car could lift your mood and make your life a little happier, or replacing your sack truck wheels could dramatically increase your work productivity which in turn could increase profits.
See how it’s all linked together?
This is where I tell you about our strong beliefs in motivation and productivity.
