Designed in the 1930s by Paul J. Kordes, Hevi-Haul Skates were the first roller dollies available for professional rigging companies and machinery movers. Respected for their quality, ruggedness, and minimal maintenance, our skates continue to be the preferred industrial brand in material handling, structural moving industries, and beyond. Trusted by local machinery movers to the branches of the U.S. Military and large multi-national corporations, our heavy duty skates can help make your heaviest machinery, material loads, and large structures much easier to move. We continue to manufacture high quality, fully welded steel frame skates that are built to last, using the best processes, materials, and technology available. We’re agile enough to modify our existing production models to create one of a kind roller dollies to meet the exact specification of your move. Along with our standard skates, we are also known worldwide as the go-to source of high quality, field functional custom load moving solutions. Custom and modified skates include, but are not limited to, guide roller systems for i-beams, bolt patterns permanent mounting, and pipe handling dollies.
“Creating Value with Products that Move the World….”
Machinery & Structural Moving Skates
Hevi-Haul Skates were designed to move many types of heavy loads under a wide variety of conditions. Load configuration, load weight, pathway of move and floor condition are factors which help determine what skates will meet job requirements. Load configuration, physical size and shape, often dictate the number of support points required. This, combined with planned usage of skids and timers, will help to specify the quantity of skates needed.
