Standard

Holmatro’s standard Skidding System consists of robust, shock-resistant parts. The maximum capacity of the system is 400 tons, assuming two skidding units are used. The total construction height is 244 mm (9.61 inches) and can carry loads over a relatively large unsupported span when the surface is uneven. The skidding capacity and control can be customized to client specifications.

In the system are 8 tracks, 2 beams, 2 push-pull units, 4 hoses, a hydraulic Twin pump, a pump trolley and a storage frame included. 

The tracks, with a standard length of 2 meters, are easy to connect to each other using steel pins. Extremely rigid steel beams with a stainless steel sliding surface are placed in the tracks, which reduces the resistance on the tracks and the chance of bending due to small loads to virtually zero.

The push-pull units are fitted with easily dismantled wings that allow the push or pull direction of the system to be changed quickly. The cylinders in the push-pull units are connected with hydraulic hoses to a powerful hydraulic pump.

Features & benefits

  • 400-ton capacity (2 X 200 t)
  • Extremely rigid beams; does not bend with small loads
  • Modular system; easy to adapt to different load sizes and projects
  • Push-pull cylinder with equal capacity for both pushing and pulling
    - Ability to push or pull the load into position, instead of only pushing
    - Accurate control in both directions
  • Demountable wings; push or pull direction can be switched quickly
  • Safe; integrated safety features in the push-pull cylinder for protection against overpressure
  • Sliding pads with extremely low friction coefficient; low sliding resistance between tracks and beams

Standard supplied with

  • Pump trolley; easy to move the pump
  • Storage frame for storing the tracks
