CHX20 Hi-Rail Excavator

Technical Specifications

A dynamic machine, the Vancer CHX20 Hi-Rail Excavator is easy to maneuver, yet powerful enough to tackle demanding MOW projects. The enhancements made to this model offer increased productivity and comfort, ease of operation and less fuel consumption. Add in the ability to couple to a variety of attachments and the CHX20 allows you to tackle all your medium and large scale MOW projects in one easy-to-use machine. As rail lines see increased traffic, the ability to schedule track windows for MOW projects is decreasing. Hi-rail products are designed to exit any non-crossing location to make way for oncoming train traffic.

  • Performance set-up allows for multiple attachment functionality to provide rail lines the ability to utilize the various attachments needed to tackle multiple types of maintenance project.
