“Omni all the wheels!” That was my first thought when I received these new Rotacaster 125mm omniwheels. They’re fantastic looking and HUGE, about 3 times the diameter of the 43mm ones that are being sold now. They have some pretty impressive stats; they can handle a load of more than 100 kilos each! I am not sure when they are due to be sold or if they ever will be. Currently there are two people that I know of that are testing these, Simon Burfield and myself. Simon has had his for a little while now and made a pretty cool platform with them. Here’s a video he shot of his really large test platform. 12.5Kgs of weights on it == no problem!
I’ve taken some pictures so you can see what they’re like. Click to enlarge.
I will keep you posted on what I end up making with them. I have 4 of them, so I am pretty sure I can come up with something cool!
