Enerpac introduces wheeled load skates for factory moves up to 70 tons

Industrial movers have a new option for moving machines and equipment in restricted spaces. The Enerpac MLS-Series wheeled load skates are a safe and stable option for machinery relocation and installation in a wide range of individual load skate capacities from 3 to 35 tons. When it comes to safety, the MLS-Series features a stable, wide footprint with padded tops for a non-slip surface. Limited space and minimal headroom are typical challenges when moving equipment. The MLS-Series is compact. Its low-height design is ideal for minimal lift heights and to accommodate limited clearance above loads. It’s also versatile. The MLSS models provide good directional movement. Meanwhile, the MLSR models feature 360-degree movement ideal for tight spaces. The easyto-rotate turntable on MLSF models allows enhanced load manoeuvrability. Enerpac MLSSeries Load Skates feature rugged

and reliable bearings for low rolling resistance and durability and high-quality wheels (nylon - MLSR, polyurethane/optional nylon - MLSF/MLSD) for stability and damage prevention to finished floors. Skate Sets increase Load Capacity The capacity of individual load skates ranges up to 35 tons. Knowing the weight of the load ensures the correct skates configuration. Enerpac can supply pre-configured sets with capacities available from 6 to 70 tons. As an example, if the load weighs 70 tons and a skate set is being used the load will be shared between the front and rear

load skates. In this instance, the front and rear skates must have the capacity to handle a minimum of 35 tons each. If requirements change extra modules and accessories are available to widen the scope for load moving jobs, for example for different sized loads, or for loads where the weight is not distributed equally. For ease of use, the MLSSeries wheeled load skates are configurable with towable or manual connecting bars and handles, depending upon the model. Enerpac, +27 (0) 12 940 0656,,
