All About Compact Swivel Skates

Moving industrial machinery can be a time-consuming and difficult operation, and it doesn’t always allow for a straight line path to the desired destination. Obstacles, surface imperfections, and safety concerns are just a few of the reasons that a move may have to take an alternate course that requires more flexibility in the skates beneath the object. For these special cases, Hevi-Haul is proud to offer a complete line of exceptional quality compact swivel skates, allowing for a lot of moving capacity in a small, low profile package.

Hevi-Haul Compact Swivel Skates are perfect for light to medium duty loads requiring full directional control. With capacities ranging from 1.5 tons to 12.5 tons per skate, and rolling on interchangeable steel or polyurethane coated rollers, these skates are built to last, allowing complete directional flexibility for your toughest moves.

In Hevi-Haul’s rugged compact swivel skate design, the friction plate between the top frame of the dolly and bottom surface of the swivel plate on each swivel top skate reduces swimming under load and eliminates the need for a locking mechanism. Each skate’s swivel top is easily removable with a hex key wrench, allowing the skate to be used for straight line moving applications as well. This dual-purpose functionality will save you time and money, reducing costs and increasing profits.

Available steel rollers provide maximum durability that can handle extended resting loads and even be used for permanent installation. These workhorse rollers are the best choice for all purpose moving. Rough and uneven floors are traversed with ease by Hevi-Haul steel rollers.

When the move is more delicate, and the floor requires additional protection, Hevi-Haul also offers polyurethane coated rollers. Heavy loads that need to be moved on marrable surfaces such as epoxy floors, common in aerospace facilities and military installations, are easily and safely accommodated by polyurethane coated rollers. These rollers were researched and developed to move the heaviest loads with floor protection in mind, and are not recommended for extended resting loads or on rough rolling surfaces, or surfaces that may be covered with debris.

Compact Swivel Skates are available individually as well as convenient kits with a steel job box and placement handle. The Rocker Top models CS-25 and CS-25-P both provide built-in tilting functionality.
