Pallet Jack Steer Wheels Inspection Tips
Steer wheels should not have flat spots or large pieces of metal imbedded in them (i.e. tacks, nails or metal shavings). Chips in the wheel, which keep it from rolling smoothly, indicate the need for replacement. Steer wheels should turn freely. They should not rub the bottom of the traverse. If they do, check for the correct installation of the snap ring under the traverse. If the wheel is worn more than 1/4" from the normal outside diameter, replacement is necessary.
