Enerpac’s new load skates for machinery relocation
Industrial movers have a new option for moving machines and equipment in restricted spaces. The Enerpac MLS-Series wheeled load skates are a safe and stable option for machinery relocation and installation in a wide range of individual load skate capacities from 3 to 35t. When it comes to safety, the MLS-Series features a stable, wide footprint with padded tops for a non-slip surface.
Limited space and minimal headroom are typical challenges when moving equipment. The MLS-Series is compact, its low-height design is ideal for minimal lift heights and to accommodate limited clearance above loads. It’s also versatile. The MLSS models provide good directional movement. Meanwhile the MLSR models feature 360deg movement suitable for tight spaces. The easy-to-rotate turntable on MLSF models allows enhanced load manoeuvrability.
Enerpac MLS-Series load skates feature rugged and reliable bearings for low rolling resistance and durability and high-quality wheels (nylon – MLSR, polyurethane/optional nylon – MLSF/MLSD) for stability and damage prevention to finished floors.
The capacity of individual load skates ranges up to 35t. Knowing the weight of the load ensures the correct skate configuration. Enerpac can supply pre-configured sets with capacities available from 6 to 70t. As an example, if the load weighs 70t and a skate set is being used the load will be shared between the front and rear load skates. In this instance, the front and rear skates must have the capacity to handle a minimum of 35t each.
If requirements change extra modules and accessories are available to widen the scope for load moving jobs, for example for different sized loads, or for loads where the weight is not distributed equally.
For ease of use the MLS-Series wheeled load skates are configurable with towable or manual connecting bars and handles, depending upon the model.
