August 25 - Rapid Response Solutions (RRS) has become the first distributor of Hydra-Slide's hydraulically powered skidding systems and other related products in the UK and Ireland.

Hydra-Slide sales enquiries, along with enquiries for equipment-only hires, will be dealt with by RRS' distribution division, while its project department, will look after customers that need the equipment as part of a serviced package.

RRS recently took delivery of its own 300-tonne capacity HT300 system from the Canadian manufacturer.

The HT300 unit was initially put to use in the installation of transformers at electrical substations, but the diverse range of products provide numerous solutions for moving, loading and unloading all types of heavy loads, said RRS.

RRS will also promote Hydra-Slide turntables and climbing jacks.
