CHX25 Hi-Rail Excavator

Technical Specifications

A dynamic machine, the Vancer CHX25 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 CHX25 allows you to tackle all your medium and large scale MOW projects in one 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 locations to make way for oncoming train traffic.



  • Engine set-up is designed to offer lower fuel consumption and meet U.S. EPA emission standards that provide excellent fuel economy.
  • 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.
