Rail Movers are Tonnes of Help for Train Manufacturers

Tractive Power‘s battery-operated rail pushers enable a single person to effectively move massive railcars.

Both on rail and off-rail operation allow these powerful movers to be an efficient asset for any rolling stock operation. With intense power and superior manoeuvrability, these rail movers can safely solve the most challenging rolling stock concerns.

We have a range of electric tugs with the capability of pushing up to 30,000kg (30 tonnes) with one operator that is enabled for both on and off-track operation.

Our design includes a soft start throttle which enables a smooth takeoff, fast and slow speeds zero to three mph and zero degree turning for a precise and fluid movement.

The symmetrical operation provides limited de-tracking with a low profile that allows under-car operation. The power-braking system and parking brakes ensure worry-free stopping.
