Posted on July 9, 2018

If safety, ergonomics, and productivity are key factors for equipment selection when moving massive rolling stock, then Power Pusher’s line of electric tugs provide a safe, cost effective way to move heavy railcars. There are several models available for moving rolling stock from a quarter ton to 225 tons (500 pounds to 450,000 pounds).

Power Pusher’s T-225 Rail Mover  industrial electric tug enables a single person to safely move 225 tons, reducing the challenge of moving massive railcars. The flexible mover operates on or off the rails for increased dexterity and efficiency allowing for easy maintenance of railcars.
