Railquip unveils new battery-powered railcar mover

Posted on December 28, 2009

[IMAGE]E.jpg[/IMAGE]Railquip introduced its new Battery Powered Railcar Mover, which utilizes its full traction weight on the drive wheels to pull 350 tons of trailing load on straight and level track. 

The mover's four electric motors, including stepless adjustable control for the individually driven wheel, allow car movement in both directions. The guide wheels can be swiveled by 135 degrees. Off the track, the unit has a turning radius of only 63 inches and can easily go on and off track. On elevated track, the railcar mover can be operated via radio remote control. 

It is available with stationary or on-board battery charger in customer's option and equipped with two rechargeable high performance batteries of 40 V/320AH capacity each. This high performance, low-life cycle cost Battery Powered Railcar Mover offers reliable safety and easy one-man operation.

The new mover can be used in workshops responsible for maintenance, service, cleaning, overhauling and refurbishing of locomotives, passenger coaches and freight cars with the aim to ensure the optimum availability and reliability of rolling stock.
