Pandrol’s rail tongs are used to install and maintain continuous welded rail (CWR). The rail tongs clip automatically onto the rail being moved and are designed to be fastened to all types of hauling and rail removal equipment.
A rail tong (also known as railroad tie tongs) is designed for carrying railway rails of various types. At Pandrol, our rail tongs are designed for quick and easy sideways positioning of rails, enabling them to be handled smoothly and safely.
Pandrol have three railroad tongs models available:
Automatic clipping allows for quick and easy fixing to the rail and minimises the risk of damage. This helps to speed up the process and maximise efficiency, saving you time and money.
The rail tongs we stock at Pandrol are designed for fast and easy sideways positioning of rails and enable them to be handled smoothly and safely. As a tool, it is robust, long-lasting, and requires minimal maintenance. This makes it more cost-effective than other rail handling systems.
Made of high-tensile Swedish steel, the rail tongs are lightweight and portable, easy to move on and off-site. The railroad tie tongs are also compatible for use with all types of hauling and rail removal equipment, ensuring you don’t need to overcomplicate things by sourcing multiple products.
The tongs automatically clip onto the rail, minimising the risk of damage. This unique design also makes it easy to apply and remove.
The RG2500 allows the towing of rails due to the towing support welded onto the side of it. When towing rails, simply turn the support in the towing direction.
When replacing rails on an existing track, the RG2500 and RG3000 tools can be used to both remove the old rails and roll the new ones into position. While lightweight and easy to use, it offers the same power as more traditional alternatives.
When using the roller grip RG4800, the rails only need to be raised very slightly off the ground to enable a proper grip. This uses the weight of the rails themselves, while allowing them to be moved sideways at the same time.
The rail grip is made of high-tensile Swedish steel, with a minimal number of moving parts. As a result, the RG2500 and RG3000 Rail Grip are extremely lightweight, making it easier to move to and from the site.
With high-quality, reliable components, the RG4800 requires very little maintenance throughout its life. It has been tested thoroughly and is supplied with CE certification. This will help you to save money in the long run and also gives you confidence in the quality of the product.
