Hebewunder Castor 33 mm
Hebewunder Castor 33 mm
Price ex VAT: £336.88 Each

Hebewunder Castor [up to 400 kg] The Hebewunder is the perfect choice of castor to move heavy scenic trucks around the stage. Probably the biggest advantage of using the Hebewunder over braking castors is the fact that the truck will sit firmly on the floor when it is lowered into place. This ensures a well spread load and therefore great stability with no chance of accidental movement. Leaving built scenic pieces on braked castors during performance can result in the floor flexing due to the high point loading. This could translate into “wobbly scenery” from the audience’s point of view or delayed scene changes because of the difficulty to marry up bolt holes or fixings. 

Each 33 mm Hebewunder can lift 300 kg by means of compressed air. This Hebewunder is fitted with all black 33 mm polyurethane wheels, with a shore hardness of 92°.

For a greater load capacity of 400 kg & Vulkollan wheels please see 50 mm Hebewunder, product code: CASHW50
