Our Rail Division builds a variety of hi-rail units from railgear on pickup trucks, rubber-tired excavators, one off specialized applications to large 230 ton rail crane builds, we really do try and build it all. We live by our moto, “If You Can Think It, We Can Build It”, however we have narrowed down our standard builds to four standard packages. These units are still customizable but they are packages we build often and have perfected. With almost 35 years in the rail industry, we know what works and what our customers require to get the job done effectively, efficiently, and safely. We have broken down our four standard Falcon hi-rail packages, so you can determine what is right for your application and see what each package comes equipped with.

Are you in the HVAC or power generation industry and need the best piece of equipment to transport your equipment to job sites? So did our customer. When this customer came to us, they explained what they would be using their new crane build for and their current pain points. Together, we designed a custom build to help alleviate unnecessary stress on the job. This build will be used to transport HVAC and power generation equipment. The equipment they transport is towable which is why there is minimal amount of deck past the rear axle, and the pintle and tail skirt are flush due to the short hitch reach on the equipment they tow. These minor extra features make all the difference for the crane operator.
