• OPERATING HEIGHT: Will present pipe from ground to work floor from 4’ to 40’ high.
• HYDRAULIC RACKS: Level, tilted toward or tilted away from Glider; allows gravity feed, touch-free pipe handling.
• PROGRAMMED WORKFLOOR HEIGHT: Preset height at job setup repeats automatically for each joint presentation.
• RABBIT DROP POSITION: Preset position at job setup repeats automatically for each joint presentation.
• ELEVATOR LATCH POSITION: Preset movement into work floor initiated by operator with toggle on wireless remote for more safety.
• START NEXT CYCLE: Operator starts next cycle with toggle on wireless remote for more safety.
• ELECTRONIC TALLY: Pipe measured during movement; joint count and length put on large display, website, and jump drive.
• DEPTH ALERT: At setup, depths of gas lift subs, plugs, etc. are programmed; auditory and visual alarms when depth reached.
• CYCLE TIME: System tracks elevator latch to elevator latch time; records visible only on website.
• SILENT PACK DIESEL ENGINE: Latest technology significantly reduces worksite noise level.
• The trough begins to move up as the skate initiates the pipe measuring sequence. The trough automatically stops at the work floor height. The pipe will not move past the end of the trough until the operator tells it to.
