Power Slide Heavy Transport System

When space limitations and costs preclude the use of a crane, Engineered Rigging’s Power Slide Heavy Transport 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 track sections, the Power Slide is ideal for heavy equipment transport of components such as turbines, generators, transformers, vessels, motors and virtually any other heavy machinery or fabrication. Engineered Rigging’s Power Slide System is proudly engineered and manufactured with domestic materials in the U.S.A. and has been featured in Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding and Equipment Focus.
