HI-RAIL CUSTOM APPLICATIONS

We're bringing a whole new meaning to having a vehicle 'on rails'.

Instead of ripping around corners at mach-speed, we've literally put a truck on tracks to create the ultimate utility vehicle.

The truck (if you want to call it that), is equipped with railgear from Diversified Metal Fabricators Inc. More specifically, DMF's RW-1650 Railgear is designed with beefed-up bearings, specially hardened wheels, and a larger axle; all in an effort to boost your weight capacity.

What makes our Hi-Rail Truck unique is its rear-mounted Loglift -- the Swiss Army Knife of cranes. Detailed below, the crane comes complete with a grapple attachment and optional magnet for grabbing loose track-side materials. In addition, the crane comes fully certified and complete with a full 360° Stability Chart for both land and rail use.

A custom-fabricated deck with lumber frame-rails allows for safe storage and transportation. In addition, the rail rack, located above the chassis' bulkhead, provides for transport of 40' rail sections.

The Hydrostatic Drive System enables the operator to propel the truck down-rail by utilizing the top seat control. The Joystick (shown right), provides control to the unit's magnet. Hydrostatic Drive System
