Maxi Rail Car Mover

LPG and Gas Powered Maxi Rail Car Movers

The Maxi Railcar Mover offers maneuverability, cost-effective operation, and multi-directional capabilities heretofore unknown in the railroad/rail transit maintenance shop. The expense of purchasing and maintaining large vehicle shunting equipment is virtually eliminated. The Maxi Railcar Mover, powered by a 15 HP gasoline, diesel, LPG, or Battery engine utilizes its own weight to develop the required friction on the rail to effect the movement. Hydraulically powered wheels are engaged to start and stop the shunting operation, which can be in either direction. The Maxi Railcar Mover is ruggedly designed to provide years of low cost shunting service in your equipment maintenance area.
