RIG WALKING SYSTEM
Scalable capacity from 2,000,000 lbs. to well over 12,000,000 lbs.
Approximately 4 feet per minute allows for precise positioning of the entire structure within 1/4”.
The Bigfoot Walker uses a safe, low-pressure hydraulic system. The main lift cylinder hydraulic
circuit is equipped with counterbalance valves. In the event of a hose rupture or breakage on the
walking system, these valves will hold the cylinders in position. Emergency stops are mounted
on the power unit as well as the wireless controls. The E-stops shut down the HPU motors and
valves in the event of an emergency stop, while holding the load.
Lift cylinders raise the rig, then travel cylinders push the substructure along the center plank on
rollers. The lift cylinders then lower the load and the travel cylinders retract for another pushing
cycle. Steering adjustments are made by hydraulic cylinders while the load is off the rollers.
HYDRAULIC POWER UNIT
A self-contained hydraulic power unit is included, requiring only a 3-phase power connection for
operation. The power unit can be located on top of the unit itself, near the rig modules, or within
the rig structure.
