Skidding System

Skidding techniques have been used for centuries. Enerpac has applied high-pressure hydraulics to create a line of skidding systems. A skidding system is comprised of a series of skid beams moved by hydraulic push-pull cylinders, traveling over a pre-constructed track. A series of special PTFE-coated pads are placed on the skid tracks to reduce friction. The skid beams are then connected by hoses to a pump.

Enerpac Skidding Systems are available in several versions:

  • B-Series (Skid Beam) utilizes a tall skid beam with built-in push-pull cylinders. Skidding direction can be easily switched by flipping a lever on the attached gripper box.
  • J-Series (Skid Jack) provides the same functionality as the B-Series with the added benefit of having a built-in cylinder for lifting or leveling the load.
  • LH-Series (Low-Height) includes low-height skid beams that can fit in tight spaces while still offering high capacity. We also offer a track support for added rigidity when the surface is not fully supported.
