SafeSledge with Lift & Shift
Shown here with Ballast tank
The primary function of the scrum trainer, is to give a safe resistant platform that allows a group of eight players to practice techniques with stable controlled movement.
As in previous sledges, it relies on the friction of moving a large mass across the field to resist the movement of the scrum. The base which has over 40 sq. ft of surface area, is easy on the pitch so it can be used on any game or practice field. Just add water barrels, players or our large capacity tank to load it down. When this platform is ballasted, it creates considerable resistance to being moved on the engagement and once it is in motion.
Options and Accessories
Lift & Shift™ Our most popular upgrade
In Order to make SafeSledge more Portable it is equipped it with a hydraulic lift assembly with seven airless turfTires. 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.
"Must be ordered from factory with original order includes ballast option water tank"
Protect your sensitive Fieldturf training Pitch. TurfTread™ is a safe non-marking, long wearing neoprene covering for the bottom of the SafeSledge™.
It dramatically increases the resistance of equipment to being moved on all surfaces.This translates into more resistance with less ballast weight with no chance of damage to the any surface.
Accustat™ Gauge Upgrade Kit
Since all the energy of the engagement is captured in the air spring, Scrummasters can take accurate measurement and record the force applied by the scrum. New 2012 AccuStat™ gauge records each engagement and rewards the athlete with a tone if they have exceeded previous hits with improved technique. More info
