Low Profile Skidding Systems

The XLP150 Hydra-Slide™ skidding system provides a cost-effective, safe, simple and reliable method for moving, loading or unloading all types of heavy loads… and all components are hand portable. It has a 1.25″ (32mm) profile, reducing jacking time and space requirements. 

This slide system is a Push & Pull system, capable of both pushing and pulling 150 tons (135 tonnes). 

It’s ideal for areas with restricted access and flat, continuous support (or blocking).

Heavy Track Skidding Systems

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.

Up 'N Go Jacking Shoes

A compliment to the HT-500 skid system for Super-Heavy loads, these individual Jacking Load Shoes are designed to fit our standard HT-500 track.

Power Units

Our Hydra-Pac™ Synchronous* 10,000 psi Hydraulic Power Units provide synchronized control of multiple hydraulic cylinders. They are suitable for operation of all Hydra-Slide Skidding Systems, Turntables, Climbing Jacks and most other double-acting jacking applications.


Our Engineered Turntables are extremely simple and low-maintenance – and they solve a big problem – rotating any heavy or oversized load accurately and efficiently, even in areas of restricted access or clearance. They are ideal for rotating items such as transformers or generators during handling or installation. They incorporate a reversible, hydraulically powered rotating mechanism for precise control. Several sizes are available with capacities from 150 tons to 500 tons.

Alignment Shoes

Our 500 ton capacity alignment shoe set makes final positioning of a load simple and precise. The set of 4 pushing shoes includes two 50-ton push cylinders, allowing accurate movement in either direction, or on slight angles. The shoes are 1.75” (45mm) high, with a graphite sliding surface and bonded eurethane/steel base to grip the ground and prevent unwanted movement. Includes several handle sets and lifting holes. 

All parts are hand-portable, with the heaviest component weighing 127 lbs (58kg).

Hydraulic Jacks

Hydra-Slide Climbing Jacks are available in sizes of 55, 100 and 200 ton capacity. They incorporate a standard Enerpac (or equivalent) hydraulic cylinder inverted inside a specially designed load casing. Each jack has a stroke of 6″ and they are designed to be used with Ekki jacking timbers. As the jacks are extended and retracted, the Ekki timbers are progressively built under the jack for a very fast and safe means of raising or lowering large loads.

Support Stands

Engineered 100 ton capacity support stands in standard heights from 18″ to 48″ (457mm to 1219mm)

Ekki Jacking Timbers

Ekki hardwood jacking timbers are exceptionally strong and resistant to crushing or bending. They are ideally suited for jacking and blocking applications and are much smaller, lighter and easier to handle than conventional timbers. 

Standard timber size is 10cm x 10cm x 1.0 m and weighs only 11kgs each. (4″ x 4″ x 40″ x 25 lbs). Other sizes available upon request.
