Holmatro’s Lightweight Skidding System is built of extremely lightweight components, so it can be easily carried, handled and positioned by one or two persons without the need for a forklift or the use of extra equipment. The maximum capacity of the system is 200 tons, assuming two skidding units are used. The total construction height is just 56 mm (2.20 inches).
The lightweight system starter kit includes 8 tracks, 2 beams of 1 meter, 2 beams of 1.8 meters, 2 push-pull units, 2 push-pull brackets, 4 hoses, a hydraulic Twin pump on a trolley and a storage frame.
The tracks are easy to connect to each other by means of a click system (no bolting). Stainless steel beams are placed in the tracks. With a handle on the push-pull unit the push or pull direction of Holmatro’s lightweight Skidding System can be switched in a split of a second. The return line of the push-pull cylinders is internal, which significantly reduces the chances of this being damaged. Because the supply and return couplers are positioned next to each other on the back side of the cylinder due to the use of the internal return line, the hoses needed for ingoing and outgoing oil are of equal length. The Skidding System is driven by a powerful hydraulic twin (split flow) pump.
Holmatro has developed extra high beams (optional) for situations where the contact surface of loads do not entirely fit on the front side of the push-pull unit. These form fit the standard beams, so that the total weight is optimally distributed across the entire system.
