Rail Car Mover Applications

We’re once again packing a ton of power into a small machine with our Rail Car Mover, able to move 200,000 pounds with the twist of a handle.

The Rail Car Mover is equipped with the industry-standard rail car coupler and connects swiftly and easily to rail cars. It comes ready to move individual rail cars across asphalt, concrete or gravel.

Built on a heavy-duty steel frame, the Rail Car Mover is operated with a variable-speed twist handle, a high-tech speed controller, adjustable acceleration and braking, and neutral throttle braking. Move rail cars forward or in reverse at up to 3 miles per hour.

The Rail Car Mover is comes standard with three 36v, 115 amp batteries, a battery discharge indicator and onboard charger. It’s built to last and made to be used eight hours a day, seven days a week. Because it doesn’t run on gas or diesel, it has zero emissions and can be safely run in an enclosed space, all day long.

Customize your Rail Car Mover with any of our available features: a safety horn, maintenance free batteries, flashing light and pole, Trojan batteries, fully enclosed chain guards, sealed AGM batteries, or dual solid drive tires.


Rail Car Mover Features and Specifications

The RailCarCaddy Rail Car Mover is equipped with a custom coupler that easily connects to any or all rail cars. The RailCarCaddy navigates over flush tracks and through lightly packed gravel to retrieve rail cars short distances, without omitting the toxic fumes of a gas combustion engine. The variable-speed thump twist grip allows operators to safely and effortlessly transport rail or tank cars to their desired locations. The low-speed, high-torque motors and transaxle of the Rail Car Mover, with adjustable acceleration and braking, gives the utmost control when gently positioning cars in tightly packed stations and warehouses. Also, the size and price make it a much more attractive solution when compared to other equipment designed to accomplish the same task.
