Used skatewheel conveyor systems are lightweight and economical. Skatewheel conveyors are perfect for transporting medium to lightweight packages.  The design is ideal for cartons, totes, and other packages with a flat, smooth bottom surface.  Its ability to turn independently allows for the option of adding curves to the conveyor system.   ASI offers used skatewheel conveyors that require minimal pitch to keep products moving.  We also offer gravity roller conveyor and conveyor accessories.


Used skatewheel conveyor manufacturers include Buschman, Mathews, Rapistan and Speedway.  American Surplus stocks these brands along with Hytrol, Ermanco, ACSI and Interlake.  Design and installation of used skatewheel conveyor, by trained professionals, is available nationwide.


Used skatewheel conveyor is a very simple and cost effective way to transport product without using additional power. When compared to gravity roller conveyors, skate wheel conveyors require less pitch to convey the product, which means it can go farther distances with less of an elevation change. The skate wheels provide more contact points with the product, meaning less energy is needed to turn the wheels. This also means that the product will maintain orientation when maneuvering curves.

The wheels on skatewheel conveyors are available in 75 to 100 lbs. capacities in zinc, aluminum, and plastic. Because of the density of the skatewheels, much heavier loads can be placed on the conveyor. The skatewheels are raised above the conveyor frame, allowing for products to be wider than the frame itself. It is recommended that you do not exceed the conveyor’s frame width by more than 25%. The frame must be able to support both the skatewheels and the load itself, and they typically come in 5-10 feet support centers. Additional supports would be required for anything exceeding the frame's support center capacity.


There are a few limitations to skatewheel conveyors. Products need to have a flat bottom to be transported on a skatewheel conveyor. This is because of the gaps between the skate wheels, which cause the product to either fall through or lose orientation and fall off the conveyor. In these situations, a gravity roller conveyor would be more appropriate.


Why buy used skatewheel conveyor?  We inspect, test, and clean all of our used conveyor prior to shipment. In addition, we have an extremely large inventory of high-quality used skatewheel conveyor stock. We also provide a 30 day ASI guarantee on all used skatewheel conveyor system parts if they are not working properly.
