PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report describes the development and certification of the H1640 caster tool. This tool is used to rotate swivel caster wheels 90 degrees on bomb hand trucks or shipping containers. The B83 is a heavy bomb system and weighs close to 5,600 pounds for a two-high stack configuration. High castering moments (handle length times the force exerted on handle) are required to caster a wheel for a two-high stack of B83s. The H1640 is available to the DoD (Air Force) through the Special Equipment List (SEL) for the B83 as a replacement for the H631 and H1216 caster tools.
