HT300 Heavy Track Skidding System

HT300 Heavy Track Skidding System

Hydra-Slide™ Heavy Track skidding systems are one of the most cost-effective, accurate and safe methods for moving, loading or unloading all types of heavy loads where a rigid, load carrying track is required.

The HT300 has a total height of only 7″ (180mm). This saves jacking time and is ideal for working in confined spaces.

Engineered for pushing 300 tons (270 tonnes) with standard double track layout

All connectors, lugs, graphite lubricant, stop blocks and push cylinders are stored in a Steel Toolbox for easy transport and inventory control.
Skidding a fully dressed Transformer with a Heavy Track system.
Skidding a boiler out of a packaging plant in the USA.

A safer alternative to overhead lifting or rollers

No come-alongs, winch lines or holdbacks required

Unique ratchet track design enables automatic resetting of push cylinders

Bi-directional track and skid shoes for skidding in either direction

Track will carry loads over unsupported spans

Durable, low maintenance graphite-on-steel slide surfaces

Simple pin & lug connections – no tools required

Engineered stamped General Arrangement drawings & Track Capacity Chart included

Track sections are available in several standard lengths as well as custom lengths

“Leap frog” tracks to move longer distances

The HT300 system can be upgraded to a Push/Pull cylinder and shoe configuration that allows operation in both push and pull mode.

Note that if the system is used in pull mode the capacity of the system is reduced by approximately 50%.
