Moving Heavy Loads &
Machines Made Easy
Your load moving operations just got a whole lot
Traditionally, moving heavy loads or machines has been
accomplished by using wheels and/or casters. But this type of operation
comes with a price - they usually damage your floors into the bargain as
well as challenge the operators who have to push and shove loads with
this type of caster.
Why not consider a much easier way of doing things, and
without the challenges that traditional casters bring. Hovair Systems
offers an easy way to moving heavy loads and machines - using Air
Casters. Air casters operate in a series of air caster modules that form
into a load moving system right out the box making set up very easy.
That's right! They come complete with everything you need to be up and
running very quickly. You will have nothing to purchase in addition.
Looking at the images to the right, at the top you can
see a Low Profile heavy load moving kit system complete with remote
control unit and everything else you need.
The bottom image is a standard Round Steel Air Caster
kit system that again has virtually everything you need for a relatively
quick set up.
Systems has a wide range of systems to help lift and move your heavy
loads. Weight capacities range from 1 ton to 100 tons and all points in
If air casters do not suit your needs, consider an air
pallet or small air transporter, or simply contact us and let your

industrial machine moving operations generally involves cranes, pulleys,
forklifts and other similar
traditional tools, Hovair Systems offers a different viewpoint to
lifting and moving heavy machines - by lifting them from below using top
quality air casters to do the work for you. Air Casters are not only
safe and easy to use, they are also very cost-effective when considering
they can be used over and over again.
Air powered (pneumatic)
machine and load moving systems work in a
series of four or more and lift your load away from the floor much the
same as a Hovercraft. Our products use the same principle: air film
Using our wide range of products you can now move
rig, lift and move machines and loads of any shape, size or weight using just a little of the
regular compressed air in your shop. These systems are so easy to use. Anyone can use them: guys, gals, even the boss.
We have a great range of starter kits available
complete with all hoses and necessary fittings. When your load capacities
grow, simply add a couple more modules to take the strain and it is
business as usual.
You can move loads of up to 100 tons and more with
virtually no effort at all.
Move your loads into places that a forklift truck or
overhead crane just cannot get to. There is no limit to the tight spaces
you can maneuver into.
