LGH Adds New AIRFLOAT® Models

Keeping in line with their promise to stock their warehouses with the most up-to-date equipment available, Lifting Gear Hire has added two rental products from AIRFLOAT®: 4-skate and 6-skate systems.

Air skates move heavy loads on a cushion of air, offering 360 degrees of rotation when compared with traditional machine skates. They move by using a specially designed air caster that slowly and evenly releases a thin film of air that floats the object, which typically range between 50-90 psi.

The additional skates will provide users the ability to lift and carry bigger and heavier equipment more easily. The capacities offered for the 4-skate system are 25,000 and 33,000 lbs. and the capacities available for the 6-skate system are 37,500 and 49,500 lbs. Each load skid system includes four or six steel single bearing air skids plus an appropriate control package including on/off valve, pressure regulator, and flow control values. Each skid contains a hose with quick discount, but does not include a main supply hose. Both new skid systems are available for immediate rental. For more information, please visit http://lgh-usa.com/product/air-skates/. Their current model inventory has capacity ranges up to 540,000 lbs.
