Support

Hydra-Slide Alignment Shoes are one of the safest methods for final positioning of heavy loads. The shoes are very low-profile, keeping the load close to the ground and moving along a guided path. The load is never freely suspended. When used as intended, they don't require any winches, holdbacks, or other external force/restraint of any kind. They are controlled by a single operator and there is no need for any personnel to be close to the load while it is moving.

Our AS500 Alignment Shoes are coated with dry graphite on their slide contact surfaces. The graphite is used for several reasons: first, it provides a 0.15 - 0.20 friction coefficient. The relatively high friction values increase the safety of the move by virtually eliminating any risk of uncontrolled movement or runaway. Secondly, because it is a dry lubricant, any contamination, grit, or other debris that falls on the tracks can simply be brushed off and does not become embedded in the system, preventing damage to the system surfaces and hydraulics. The graphite is also non-hazardous and readily available for periodic maintenance.

Frequently Used Together

Conventional Hydraulic Power Units

These single-circuit, cart-mounted power units are suitable for the operation of all Hydra-Slide skidding systems, turntables, and alignment shoes, as well as most double-acting jacking applications. They are suitable in applications that do not require synchronized flow rates. 

HT500 Heavy Track System

The HT500 features rigid steel tracks capable of carrying loads over unsupported spans, is engineered to push loads up to 500 tons, and has a working height of only 8″ (205mm).

LP350 Low Profile System

The LP350 is our workhorse low-profile skidding system. Engineered for function and convenience, the LP350 has a durable graphite slide surface and a working height of 1.5" (38mm).
