An innovator in hydraulic compensated skid-shoe systems, ALE is uniquely qualified to understand and respond to your precise requirements in the use of skidding systems to move heavy and abnormal loads.
Skidding systems are designed to make safe and precise horizontal movements, and as such are an effective means of moving plant and structures in confined or restricted environments. The movement equipment has hydraulic skid-shoes with stainless steel bases which move over low-friction blocks laid into steel skid-tracks in an extend/retract sequence.
Our skidding equipment can suit a wide range of capacities, with the option of combining a number of skid-shoes to create the most suitable system for moving complex loads. The integral hydraulic cylinder of the skid-shoes can be interlinked to provide a hydraulically compensated suspension system.
