All About Straight Line Skates: Part 2

As we learned last time, when you need to move a load in a smooth, precise, and straight fashion, Hevi-Haul offers a line of excellent skates built tough to meet your unique needs. The ultimate machinery moving dollies for straight line moving, Hevi-Haul straight line skates come in three varieties: long, short, and slim. In this post, we’ll take a deeper look at the specialized applications that demand the unique possibilities offered by short and slim straight line skates.

Remember, these low profile skates are ideal for narrow, limited space moving and heavy duty straight line moving applications, with capacities ranging from 2.5 tons to 100 tons per skate, rolling on interchangeable steel or polyurethane coated rollers. Made in the USA and designed to last, our straight line skates share the same rugged durability and design excellence as our full line of utility skates, structural mover skates, and compact swivel skates.

Short Straight Line Skates

Short straight line skates utilize many of the same features of their longer counterpart in a shorter frame. Two rows of tandem rollers in a shorter, fully welded steel frame gives excellent stability under load. These skates are favored for handling heavier jobs for machinery movers, riggers, stevedores and contractors. Capacities range from 6 tons to 30 tons per skate, and as with our long straight line skates, short straight line skates come equipped with either durable steel rollers for all-purpose moving, or polyurethane rollers for surfaces that require maximum protection.

Slim Straight Line Skates

When moving space is limited, but you still need the same high capacity and durability to ensure a smooth and accurate move, only Hevi-Haul slim straight line skates will do. Slim straight line skates are based on the same concepts as our long and short skates in a narrower frame. A single row of tandem rollers in a fully welded steel frame provides heavy duty moving capabilities where space is limited. Capacities for slim straight line skates range from 2.5 tons to 12.5 tons per skate.

Hevi-Haul skates deliver performance and durability in a variety of applications where there is little room for error. Trust your move to Hevi-Haul, and you’ll ensure smooth, consistent and precise travel for your heaviest loads.
