Multiple Skates Blurred

Load Skates – What Has Changed In the Load Moving Industry?

Load skates have, for some years now, been an integral part of load moving across both the UK and the rest of the world. For this reason, it is likely there are a number of organisations out there still using functional skates and hydraulic moving equipment from many years ago. But should you look at upgrading your current lifting and moving equipment?

The answer is a resounding yes. While your moving skates and hydraulic jacks may have remained functional and well-maintained over the years, a disaster may just be around the corner. Lifting equipment has really advanced over the past decade or so in a big way. Production lines are now far better and, as such, better builds of lifting and moving machinery are now a standard within the load moving industry. Safety, durability and quality have been key factors in the factories and workshops of load moving machinery manufacturers. Today’s skates and hydraulic moving equipment have benefited from this technology and can now lift even bigger loads, provide far more safety, last longer and even lift heavier loads faster than ever. While you may not value the importance of a modern jack and skate lift system over your other, more expensive industry machinery in your organisation, the reality is that both need to be kept up-to-date. For example, if your lifting equipment and skates decide to give way one day, your expensive machinery may no longer be expensive. So protect your investment and upgrade.
