So how does it all work? 

*Friendly guideance: Firstly you'll need to jack up your machine using toe jacks, mechanical jacks, hydraulic cylinders, pneumatic air bags or a crane. Once the machine is off the ground- position the skates accordingly, ensuring the steerable skate is at the front (normally in the center- additional steerable skates can be purchased if required, P/N: SSKT-12), and the rear skates are positioned at the back. Then simply lower the machine on to the setup, slowly and carefully- you want to avoid fast movements as shock-loading could occur. -Always read the manual and have a firm lift/move plan before carrying out any machine moving job.

  • Do you charge sales tax?
  • In order to bring you the very best shopping experience we often ship from various distribution centers across the country and out of state. This creates a sales tax Nexus for us in a high number of states and therefore, depending on where you are located we may or may not be obliged to collect sales tax from you.  By heading to your shopping cart and after selecting your delivery state and entering the zip code our advanced system will take all the necessary factors in to consideration to determine if we will need to collect sales tax from you and at what % rate.
