Since 1967, we’ve prided ourselves on manufacturing a product our customers can rely on. Each Power Caster is hand assembled in the U.S.A. to ensure consistent quality and performance.
It’s Easy to Maneuver
With the Power Caster you can move your single, tandem, or triple-axle trailer and park it in just a few minutes with very little effort. Sharp turns, tight corners and narrow driveways, which are often difficult or impossible using your car or truck,are no longer a headache. A 23-foot tandem trailer can be turned completely around in a 28-foot wide space with a flip of a switch.
Power Caster has been designed and manufactured to meet maximum safety standards. In addition to a chain guard, each unit is also grounded. Our tongue weight and load limits are conservative (with the exception of the PC-1), allowing plenty of margin for safety.
It’s Powerful and Compact
Each motor delivers 400-800 in./lbs. of torque at the motor shaft. This is further geared down by a six-to-one ratio between the motor and wheel. The result is tremendous power being delivered to the wheel. Depending on the model you choose, PC-1, PC-2 or PC-3, the Power Caster can handle tongue loads of 500, 800 or 1,800 lbs (reinforced will do 2500 lbs. of hitch weight) all at a size small enough to fit in the trunk of a car.
It Delivers Maximum Traction
The Power Caster connects to the trailer by use of the crank-up jack (NOT THE BALL) or an adapter. This in effect shortens the trailer tongue and loads it more heavily for better traction. All models operate best on level hard-surfaced ground or pavement. Grass, gravel or soil surfaces are dependent on level of traction produced by the tongue weight. Inclines of no more than 10% are recommended.
Application Can Be Customized
The application of your Power Caster model can be customized via various adapters depending on what you are moving (boat, trailer, 5th wheel etc.). All models come with a 2-1/4″ socket and bushings that cover crank-up jack diameters of 1-5/8″, 1-3/4″, 1-7/8″ and 2″. Easy to install adapters, that can be bolted or welded to the frame are available. Custom adapters can manufactured. Our adapter page also provides examples of custom adapters made by our customers. Power Caster can be used with almost any kind of trailer. (Click here to see adapters).
And, while only the PC-3 comes with the kit that allows you to tap into electric trailer brakes, accessory brake switch kits are available for the PC-1 and PC-2.
Due to the increase in our motor cost, prices on all models will increase $100 beginning May 1, 2021.
