On-track Equipment

Hy-Rail 10-17.5 US Ton

The Rosenqvist Hy-Rail 10-17.5 US Ton Rail Road Conversion is a heavy duty attachment which enables the heaviest excavators to work in railway environments

Manufactured specifically for excavators weighing 10 to 17.5 US Ton, the Hy-Rail attachment offers stability and flexibility when working on rail tracks. All movement is controlled from the driver’s cabin, and the hydraulics work without the need for additional swivel implements. The machine has two modes of operation: lifted up with the rubber wheels in contact with the rail wheels, or lowered down onto the rail with the rubber wheels running on the rail with the rail wheels used as guide wheels.
