Jacking and Skating

Moving heavy machinery and equipment can be difficult, awkward, time-consuming and dangerous, but with the experts at OM Heavy Lift on your side you can be sure the job will be done right, done well and done safely. As you might expect from experienced heavy lifting specialists, we have all the necessary equipment you could need, no matter what you’re trying to move.

There are times when our jacking and skating services are more suitable for moving items than a mobile crane. If you’re looking to install or remove machinery in a factory, for example, it will often be easier and cheaper to lift and slide with jacks and skates than it would for a mobile crane to be brought to site, assuming of course that there would be room for the crane in the first place.

OM Heavy Lift can tackle even the most arduous of projects. We have more than 100 Enerpac jacks, hand pumps and split flow HPU units on site, ready to take on anything. Our jacks have a capability of 250 tonnes each, while our hollow jacks have a capacity of 150 tonnes each. Individual skates can handle up to 30 tonnes each or, as a set, up to 100 tonnes.

We know from experience that many of our customers find the initial prospect of moving heavy items to be more than a little daunting, but we’re experienced engineers and we approach every project with a methodical approach. Our focus is on applying our knowledge to making even the most complex operation as simple and logical as possible.

No matter what you have to move or where, we can help. To find out more about OM Heavy Lift and what we can do for you, give us a call on 01382 457 110. We hope to hear from you soon.
