Gravity rollers can transport most objects easily and the adjustable stands and use of connecting plates and end stops make these conveyors very popular. The centre conveyor is a skatewheel version of the same dimensions. With a lower weight capacity these conveyors are preferred where the product might not have a totally flat bottom.
