As railroads look to gain production efficiencies and improve employee safety, Vancer offers several material handling equipment solutions.
The CHX13 Hi-Rail with tie inserter attachment is designed to enable operators to complete such projects as tie insertion and tie removal within short maintenance windows, company officials said. It also can operate a line of attachments and specialized tools.
For the CHX35 Hi-Rail excavator, Vancer took the largest compact radius machine available and gave it enhanced productivity, versatility, comfort and ease-of-use, company officials said. Equipped with the Tier 4 final Cat 7.7 ACERT engine, the unit “easily handles tough jobs” such as replacing and maintaining ballast and ties, they said. When paired with the Panel Boss®, the CHX35 operator can place panels where they need to go without a ground crew and chain, company officials said.
Vancer also offers a 35 Yard Ballast Cart designed for distributing and spreading ballast. The cart can be towed at speeds up to 25 mph and includes brakes on all wheels, life points and chains.
