New: Machine Skates and Toe Jacks

In any industrial warehouse, there will come a time when heavy loads need to be moved, whether large domestic appliances or pieces of valuable machinery. When that time comes, it will benefit you to be properly prepared with the right tools to move them safely and efficiently.

Here at the Lifting Equipment Store USA, we are committed to providing useful solutions for all of your industrial lifting and moving needs. In keeping with our mission, we are excited to announce our two new ranges of machine moving tools, covering everything from machine skates to hydraulic jacks.

Through this article we will introduce you to some of the items available to buy at the Lifting Equipment Store USA, to give you a better idea of what might be most useful in your workplace. If by the end of the blog you’re still not entirely sure which tool is right for you, then feel free to contact a member of our team and they will guide you to make the correct decision for your needs.


Machine moving systems are an invaluable tool when it comes to moving heavy loads, being low-to-the-ground weight-bearing platforms fitted with rollers for the easy transit of heavy items. They range from smaller, simpler fixed wheel models, to larger, more elaborate kits capable of carrying much heavier loads.


At the Lifting Equipment Store USA, our moving systems have capacities that range between 2.5ton to as much as 30ton, with varying degrees of maneuverability. It’s important to assess what your machine moving needs are before investing in a skate, as they all differ in terms of both usage and pricing.  


Our new range of smaller machine movers can carry between 2.5ton and 6ton and are handy when it comes to moving domestic household appliances, such as washing machines or dishwashers. They are the cheapest moving dollies that we offer, come generally as singular models, but there are also models available that are designed with steering handles for smoother maneuvering.

Let’s take a look at some of the smaller models we offer at the Lifting Equipment Store USA.



Vestil Fixed Machinery Moving Skate 2.5 Ton

Key Features / Pricing:

·       2.5ton capacity

·       2 rigid nylon wheels for no floor marks

·       Extra grip rubber surface

·       Priced at $61.99


Vestil Front Steerable Machinery Moving Skate 3 Ton

Key Features / Pricing

·       3ton capacity

·       Steel steering handle

·       $130.00





At the LES USA, we understand that 6ton is not the be-all and end-all of heavy loads in industrial settings, which is why we now also offer a range of larger moving skate sets for the movement of larger-scale machinery. These sets are generally designed with twin sets of rear skates and a front unit for steering and can carry loads between 6ton to 30ton. They can be purchased either in parts or as complete sets.

Here are a few of the full machine moving kits that we have on offer in our range.


Vestil Machine Moving Skate Kit - 24 Ton

Key Features / Pricing:

·       24ton capacity

·       1x front steerable skate + 2x attached rear trailing skates (also available separately)

Now that you have a better idea of the kinds of moving systems that we stock, it’s time to meet the moving skate’s best friend – the toe jack.



These are a form of hydraulic jack that is used for the kind of low-level lifting necessary to safely load a machine moving dolly. These jacks use pressurized oil, in conjunction with the force applied by the user to the handle or external pump to lift heavy objects off the ground with a metal “toe”. Not only are they great for lifting appliances and machinery, but they can also be a helpful tool for the servicing and maintenance of forklifts and industrial stackers.

The toe jacks that we offer are all HTS brand, and can lift between 4.5ton to 50ton. Let’s take a look at some of the options that we stock at the Lifting Equipment Store USA.


HTS Eco-Jack XR-Series 4.5 Ton Hydraulic Toe Jack
