Hilman Rollers

Since 1953, the Original Hilman Rollers are designed and manufactured in our state of the art facilities in New Jersey, USA – centrally located between the ports of NY and PA.

Hilman Rollers are low profile, high capacity moving devices that offer a multitude of moving applications. Ranging in size from small machinery to entire bridges, buildings and offshore oil rigs; Hilman Rollers have moved some of the largest objects in the world. 

All Hilman Rollers utilize the endless chain principle; which features a chain of steel rolls capable of rotating about a central load-bearing, steel plate.  The result is a product that performs as a low friction, high capacity conveyor. Often referred to as Rollers, Dollies, Skates, Machinery Movers and Turtles; Hilman has become a brand name when referring to this type of equipment.  All Hilman Rollers are rated in metric tons and carry a safety factor of at least 2-to-1.

Because no two applications for Hilman Rollers are ever exactly the same, over the years we have designed and manufactured many different engineered solutions to ensure proper fit and function. If you cannot find a Hilman Roller that fits your application precisely the way you desire; then perhaps we can design something that specifically addresses your requirements.

Hilman's website is designed to offer our extensive selection of Hilman rollers and convey our capacity to provide custom modifications inclusive of supplying entire skidding systems, integrated hydraulic components, control panels, and emergent automated roller systems.
