Moving Containers? Use Castors

Immensely rugged and precision built, BISON Container Castors give you minimal rolling resistance and excellent maneuverability.  With polyurethane tires running on solid cast iron hubs, a machined ball-race and high-tensile kingpin, BISON Container Castors are designed to deliver performance, durability and independence for moving containers around your site.

  • Make your containers mobile
  • Move the container to where it suits you
  • Use your space more efficiently
  • Do away with the expense of cranes or heavy forklifts

How do Castors work?

  • BISON Container Castors come in two load capacities: the 2500 Series and the 5000 Series.
  • Each set consists of two left-hand castors and two right-hand castors.
  • To fit the castors, the container needs to be raised 50cm (20") with the castors placed underneath and fastened to the container's corner castings.
  • The container is then lowered onto the castors, making your container mobile.

Maximize container mobility with a Towbar

BISON Castors have the most impact on your site mobility when paired with a BISON Towbar. Together, containers can be easily towed with a light forklift or other equipment.


Raise containers with a C-Lift

Shipping containers need to be raised 50cm (20") to install castors. Use a BISON C-Lift and raise and lower containers without cranes or other heavy equipment.


Castor options

  • Braked

    Braked castors allow you to prevent container roll. This is particularly important when your site is not completely level.

  • With directional lock

    All BISON Castors swivel. The directional lock allows your castors to function as rigid castors. This is very useful when you need to store containers next to each other with minimal space.
