The Rail Wheel Dolly has a modular design with 17.6 tons and 35 tons capacity models, and is easily assembled by two individuals without the use of additional equipment. Once the unit has been assembled, the car with the damaged weel must be jacked approximately 4" - 9" depending on the rail wheel dolly model. (Available Lifting Equipment) The cars may be coupled or uncoupled whichever is more suitable for the situation. Now the Rail Wheel Dolly is rolled under the damaged wheel set. The car is then lowered onto the Rail Wheel Dolly, the jacks are removed and you are ready to roll!

The complete unit assembled weighs 900 lbs. respectively, with the heaviest single component weighing 90 lbs. Very little maintenance is required, but as with all equipment, the dolly should be inspected annually or more frequently, depending on usage.

When the car or locomotive has been moved to its destination for repair, the car is jacked and the Rail Wheel Dolly is removed. When the Rail Wheel Dolly is no longer required, it is easily disassembled for storage.
