The Vestil VHMS-8 Machine Skate features a swivel top that rotates 360° on steel ball bearings for outstanding maneuverability. Up to 8,000 lbs in load weight is transferred directly from the load bearing plate to the rollers which reduces axle friction and requires less energy to start and transport. A spring loaded locking mechanism on the swivel top can be engaged in detents at 45° intervals. This heavy-duty machinery skate is made of durable annealed ductile iron. The VHMS-8 is designed to be maintenance free and to provide years of dependable service. Optional steering bars break down into two pieces and connect with sleeve for convenient storage.
