This is a chain drive system
with 4 x 13.6m skates mounted on the dock that elevate pneumatically and move
the load in 1 shot. There are steel channels on the dock in the trailer floor
that guide the skates. The in-fill floor between the channels provides a
non-slip surface to support the pallets in the trailer, after the skates have
been withdrawn. The Hydraroll Trailer Skate will load a 13.6 meters semi-trailer in less than 4 minutes. This cost effective solution for long
distance factory warehouse shuttle operations and loads up to 30 tons.
