Hydraulic Jacking and Skidding

Utilising our specialist equipment, our Heavy Lift Team can ensure that no matter what the environment we can safely and securely undertake the heavy transport, extraction and load positioning of machinery & industrial cargoes.

The Collett Engineers have the ideal solution, providing a lifting, extraction and positioning service in areas where traditional transport arrangements may not be a suitable option.

Jacking & Skidding Two Transformers for Storage
Heavy Lifting JS125 Equipment


We operate a multi-functional synchronous hydraulic heavy lift jacking system capable of monitoring the position of the load between the four jacks to within a 1mm tolerance.

Utilising these specialist jacking systems, our Engineers can gradually raise loads to an optimum height to allow for the installation of a modular skidding system with hydraulic push-pull units and low-friction skidding pads. Once in place this system can effortlessly facilitate the extraction and movement of machinery and industrial cargoes.

Lifting & Positioning Operations

Hydraulic Equipment

This innovative hydraulic equipment allows us to raise and slide industrial machinery, transformers and components up to 500 Tonnes in a controlled manner, indoors or outdoors. 

With the option of jacking to lift and lower, and skidding to push and pull, we can load directly to trailer or relocate industrial machinery, transformers and components in confined spaces.

Engineered Calculations

Where applicable all technical documentation, jacking & skidding tolerances, risk assessments, method statements and engineered calculations will be provided by our in-house Team.

With the skills, expertise and equipment at our disposal our Heavy Lift Team can provide a jacking solution for moving heavy industrial objects, ideal for factory relocations, extractions and machinery movements.
