How to Order

How to Order Drive Wheels:

Step 1. Choosing the correct tread hardness for your application is the first step. Do you need a strong, load-bearing wheel? If so, choose a hard polyurethane (80A AND ABOVE). Need more traction? Choose a softer tread (70A AND BELOW) to get a gripping wheel that won’t slip.

Step 2. Color is completely your choice and will not affect the usage of the wheel. All of Sunray’s pigments are non-marking.

Step 3. Choose the bore diameter that will fit the shaft on which you intend to mount the wheel. Sunray will bore the wheel to fit on your drive shaft smoothly.

Step 4. For most drive wheel applications a keyslot (keyway) will be needed. Depending on the size bore chosen in step 3, Sunray will broach a keyway according to this standard keyway chart (click here for chart). If a plain straight through bore is needed, choose “NO” on this option. $15.00 will be added to each wheel (less if purchased in quantity) to have a keyway broached.

Step 5. Most drive wheels have a setscrew that’s tapped and threaded to the top of the keyway (or to the top of the shaft hole if no keyway is chosen). The setscrew will allow you to tighten the wheel onto your drive shaft. If you need no setscrew, choose “NO” on this option. $7.50 will be added to each wheel (less if purchased in quantity) to have a setscrew installed.

Step 6. Next choose the material the core will be machined from. Choose tough 1144 Steel or High Quality 6061 Aluminum. Steel will be ideal for abusive, rough applications. Aluminum for outdoor use, for a high-polish appearance or when a lighter weight wheel is needed.
