what are skate & track loading solutions?

Moving pallets or paper reels? This manual truck pallet loading and unloading solution easily shift heavy loads using a set of manually operated skates. Joloda Hydraroll's skates run in special tracks that are built into the trailer or container floor.

Ideal for moving pallets, slip sheets, drums, newsprint rolls, heavy and large machinery into or out of trucks and light vehicles, the Skate and Track is a cost-effective manual alternative to an automatic loading system. Operators can simply push pallets inside the truck to load or pull them towards the rear to unload without the forklift ever needing to enter the vehicle.

who should use this loading solution?

The Joloda Hydraroll Skate & Track manual loading systems are specifically used by companies that handle pallets and/or paper reels. It eliminates the need for a forklift or pallet truck to enter the cargo space.

New Product

introduction of new lightweight skate

Joloda Hydraroll has recently added a new product to the Skate & Track loading system lineup, we now also offer a lightweight aluminium skate to complement our original steel-type skates. The aluminium skate is half the weight (with a lifting capacity of 1,600kg per pair), which makes it even easier to handle – the ideal solution when weight-saving is key.

Our new aluminium skate weighs only 7kg each and is 5kg lighter than our typical steel skate-type, making it an undeniably lightweight system. This reduces the strain on the operator when manually manoeuvring the skate (and the load) on and off trucks.
