Heavy Carriage Wagon Wheels built for demanding applications. More than suitable for Passenger applications.
This line of wheels and axles are capable of holding up to 2,500 lbs. depending on your needs and the option you choose. These heavy duty wagon wheels have steel hubs machined to accept 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, and 1 3/4″ roller bearing axles. Rims and spokes are built from high grade Hickory, with fire-forged steel tires at 3/8″ deep or tough rubber tires. Bolt through construction, no screws. Ready to handle anything from commercial carriage touring to Hay rides or a very large Parade wagon. We enjoy challenges and custom projects.
Our Heavy Carriage Wagon Wheels start out with steel hubs that accept 1 1/4″ to 1 1/2″ roller bearing axles. A Set of (4) will hold an average of 2,500 lbs.
For Weight Bearing to 3,500 lbs, you will need to go with a 1 3/4″ axle. Which we do. Above that, please contact us, just to make sure liability is not a factor for either of us. We have Hubs that will hold beyond what has been discussed here, we want to be on the same page when those types of weights are involved.
Available in even sizes from 24″ to 54″. Please Contact us for sizes above that.
Axles are available. You can order bearing size of axle below. We give you a general weight bearing guideline down farther, but do call us to determine overall length to fit your project. If we know more, there won’t be room for error, and with axle length it needs to be right. Prices of axles do not change unless they exceed 6 feet in length. Stub axles also available to save on shipping costs.
We do offer Heavy Carriage Wagon Wheels that will hold even more weight. Due to liability, we would prefer to go over all the specifications before you order if your project weight bearing needs climbs above 2,500 lbs. Usually at those weights, there are specific items to be addressed anyway. Feel free to email or call to submit your project idea. For projects like parade floats or ones which will need to hold many people, give us a call. We want to make sure any wagon wheels that go under your particular project will be safe and functional for many years.
For horse drawn applications, let us know any particulars about the size or condition of your animal, or the potential weight bearing of your vehicle. It’s possible you could go with our standard Buggy and Carriage Wheels.
