“Dynamic in function, limitless in capability”

When space limitations and costs preclude the use of a crane, Engineered Rigging’s Power Slide System delivers a simple, safe and efficient way to move heavy and oversized loads. Comprised of skid shoes powered by hydraulic push/pull cylinders over high-strength flat-topped track sections, it’s ideal for moving large components such as turbines, generators, transformers, vessels, motors and virtually any other heavy machinery or fabrication. It is proudly engineered and manufactured with domestic materials in the U.S.A.
