Power Slide System
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 track sections, the ER PS300 is ideal for the transport of heavy equipment such as turbines, generators, transformers, vessels, motors and virtually any other heavy machinery or fabrication. Our Power Slide System is proudly engineered and manufactured with domestic materials in the U.S.A.
The ER PS300 was featured in Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding and Equipment Focus.
High Capacity & Versatility
The Power Slide Heavy Transport System can be configured to move heavy loads ranging from 50 to 2,000+ tons.
Rugged Construction: built to withstand daily use and extreme loads
Custom Weldments: vertical jacking, alignment and leveling
In-House Fabrication: quick turnaround of customized solutions in the U.S.A.
Low Track Height: low jacking requirements enhance load and project safety
The Power Slide Heavy Transport System features numerous advances that create value and increase efficiency during heavy equipment transport:
Modularity: ease of handling, shipping and setup for field projects
Push/Pull Functionality: flexibility for reduced project time and costs
Quick Ratchet Adjustment: simple lever change to switch from push to pull
Continuous, Automated Push/Pull Cycle: automated operation improves efficiency and durability Built-In Lift Lugs: hook-ready for quick and secure handling
Shipping: standard systems fit inside a 20-foot container
