What is a Skates or Skoots moving system?

Skoots/skates are portable moving systems which use hydraulics to enable loads up to five tonnes to be lifted off the floor and onto casters.  The Skoots moving systems can then manoeuvre in any direction with ease, regardless of the size or shape of the item.  Skoots are able manoeuvre heavy and awkward items across various terrains without any slipping or sliding as the item is securely strapped to the system.  Accurate positioning of an item is also made simple with the Skoots moving systems by utilising four swivelling casters, which can then be lowered with precision using the hydraulic jacks.

The benefits of using a Skoots moving system are:

·         Safe and precise movement

·         100% of the weight lifted by hydraulics

·         Secure manoeuvrability

·         360 degree rotation

·         Four way directional locks

·         Easy to transport

Specialist Lifting Solutions are recognised and approved by Stanley Handling, the main Uk distributor of the Powermate powered stair climber and stair walkers.

Please take a look at our heavy lifting page, there you will find a small selection of items that we are able to move with our stair climber / stair walkers.

The pictures below show an example of how Specialist Lifting Solutions played a vital role in the relocation of two 1 tonne boilers at a shopping park in Reading for CDS Service Group LTD.

CDS were completely satisfied with the knowledge that Specialist Lifting Solutions had all the relevant Health & Safety paperwork in place, and that all regulations were complied with at all times.

The pictures below display two central heating boilers made from 6mm solid steel, each weighing in excess of 1200kgs that were relocated from the 1st floor to the ground level.  The pictures also show the different types of terrain we can cross in order to relocate various different items.
