USA Scrummaging on the SafeSledge Classic
Crono set up of a scrum "condensed"
Safe engagement with an air cushion
The advantage of using an air spring is, when you first push it, it compresses easily, and the harder you push it, the harder it resists. This means that even if the trainer does not move, it allows for a cushioned platform that is always absorbent, reducing the danger of compressive spinal injuries

The classic is very effective it has a swivel pad head that teaches players how to push properly, if they lift, it will pop up and if they don't support there weight it will dip. This is great instant feed back for the players and helps coaches see where the improvements in technique are needed.

In Order to make SafeSledge more Portable it is equipped it with a hydraulic lift assembly. This allows the friction of the trainer to be adjusted to hold back the strongest pack of forwards and without changing the ballast levels. With the pull of a lever the drag can be released to allow movement for juniors, womens, and individual strength training.
