Moving Containers? Use Castors

Immensely rugged and precision built, BISON Container Castors give you minimal rolling resistance and excellent manoeuvrability.  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 they 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, 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.

  • Optional Brake & Steering Lock: For additional safety, the castors can be fitted with an optional brake and steering lock mechanisms. 

  • Towing Bar: We offer a towing bar, which can be attached to the container for low speed maneuvering by forklift and other towing vehicles.

  • Container Lifting: We specialise in container lifting jacks, so can suggest a range of options for raising the container on and off the castors.
