Application: Mobile Farrier Pods 

Brief: With over 30 years experience as a blacksmith Steve employs traditional blacksmithing skills and craftsmanship to deliver exquisite pieces of work, from outdoor sculptures to cast iron work Steve is also a qualified farrier.heavy duty slides - farrier 02

“Whether it’s blacksmithing or shoeing horses I spend a lot of time on the road,” confides Steve. “I realised to be able to offer the customers the service they expected I would need to be able to take my tools with me.”

Farriers need a lot of essential kit and it’s not light. A mobile forge, anvils, metal working tools and gas tanks all take precious vehicle space and need to be housed securely, whilst being accessible for the farrier.

Beautifully made, these pods are functional and user friendly and are designed to meet the individual requirements of each customer.

Solution: Steve realised the only slide capable of delivering the extension and load capacity performance was the RA5. The RA5 is a three beam zinc plated steel slide sporting our famous reinforced ball bearings which add smooth delivery of the pod, as well as offsetting from brinelling and ball cage creep.heavy duty slides - farrier 03
