There are 4 key components in the Viper VMMS machine moving skate set.
The first and main component is the steerable section or the steering skate. This section incorporates a swivel plate/turntable which has a bearing to ensure smooth movement. It also has a gripping surface in order to keep the load secure. The second component, the handle, attaches to the rear to aid steering and which can be removed for compact storage.
The third and fourth components are the trailing skates. There are 2 sections which can be fitted together with the connecting bar. The bar ensures the skates move in tandem and remain equally spaced, this ensures good load stability. Both of these skates also have a non-slip coating for load security.
All wheels on the VMMS machine moving skaters are made from polyurethane.
Each set is fully traceable and marked with the maximum lifting capacity, CE mark. Product I.D code & Makers I.D
The maximum lifting capacity on each trailing skate is half of the steering skate( which is half the maximum overall capacity), but when both trailing skates are used they equal the steering skate. For example if you chose the VMMS16 model there would be a max. 8 tonne limit on the steerable section and 4 tonne on each trailing skate giving a maximum overall lifting capacity of 16 tonne.
Browse the complete collection of the load moving machine skates available at Lifting Gear Direct. There are many variations to choose from including individual skates and roller pry bars as well as complete skate sets. Load moving skates are not always a suitable option so we provide alternative methods for load moving solutions. Pallet trucks are one of the commonest types but scissor lift tables are another option as well as crane forks. Compare the products in detail to find the most appropriate load moving option for your application.
