Web Store

Keeping with our Continuous Improvements ideology, we’ve made some really great improvements to the Web Store. Among a variety of upgrades, we’ve added 3 new major features. Enhanced OEM/Competitor Part Number Cross Reference to make looking up the product you need is as easy as possible. A Quick Order Form page that makes placing repeat orders lightning fast – no waiting, no searching, or need to call a customer rep. just to place an order or products you regularly order. And finally, to make drop shipping to your customers just as easy, we’ve added a Ship-To Address Filtering function.

Continuous Improvement

The new STR1638 caster is now available to the Aftermarket. This small stabilizer caster is the OE drop-in replacement caster for Raymond® XM102 & 8300 Series walkie pallet trucks with all the features of the full size casters and more. Additional adjustability features to completely eliminate shims, PolyBlock™ spring mechanism, Cushothane® wheel, and a full size swivel mechanism.

Did You Know?

Superior Tire & Rubber Corp. manufactures tire & wheel assemblies for every kind of forklift, but did you know that includes Forging Manipulators? These massive machines have carrying capacities around 100 tons and operate in extremely brutal high temperatures. With tire OD sizes up to 67”, they are truly awesome in every aspect. Superior Tire loves a tire challenge, and what better than to engineer a T&WA that excels in these brutal applications and reduces cost. In a recent comparison test, our Cushothane® XL™ compound provided over 4 times the work-life against the competitor’s mega carrying capacity compound and a cost per hour over 4 times LESS. We are currently producing & remanufacturing 40”-67”OD tires for Glama® models 200-600, 225/1300, and 1000/3000 as well as Dango® 2611 Manipulator and the 2905 Charger.

Tech Corner

When it comes time to replace a load wheel, it’s always a good idea to replace the bearings as worn bearings lead to quicker wheel failures. And sometimes, you need to replace the axles and spacers too. Although these components are fairly common, it may take multiple vendors for one simple wheel replacement. Suddenly, a $15 wheel costs you a couple hours to order – shattering both your margins and sanity. To help eliminate this problem, we are now offering complete and partial load wheel “kits” specific to your truck’s needs to eliminate the hassle. We currently have complete Load Wheel kits inventoried for:
• Yale® Parts: 524140950 & 524140951
• Crown® Parts: 100462 & 310000
• Greaseable & non-greaseable versions of each
• Triple wheel versions of each

Let us know of other load wheel “kits” we should stock! Contact:
