Construction equipment: Enerpac, a provider of high-pressure hydraulics, announces the availability of its new Low-Height Skidding System. “Due to the demand for a portable skidding system that can slide heavy loads while fitting into tight spaces, Enerpac has applied high-pressure hydraulics to create its new Low-Height Skidding System," said Jeroen Naalden, Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology Product Director. “This modular system is the ideal solution for jobs where other lifting methods are not a viable option.”
The Low-Height Skidding System is comprised of a series of skid beams moved by hydraulic push-pull units, traveling over a pre-constructed track. A series of special PTFE-coated pads are placed on the skid tracks to reduce friction. The push-pull units are powered by a standard Enerpac Split Flow Pump to ensure each skid beam travels synchronously.
In addition to its low height, this system offers a 2-in-1 design. It can be used either on a fully supported surface or combined with the optional track support for added rigidity when the support surface is not fully supported or when spanning a gap is necessary. This two-part design means you do not need to own two sets of track for various ground support conditions.
Features and benefits include:
• 2-in-1 track design for added support
• Intuitive pump controls
• Easily reversible to change skidding direction
• Portable design for quick setup
“With its ease of use and 2-in-1 design, the new Enerpac Low-Height Skidding System is the ideal solution for any jack and slide operation,” said Naalden.
