Shuttlewagon Railcar Movers
Power and efficiency come standard
- Move railcars around the yard quickly
- Several sizes available
- Diesel and electric options
Shuttlewagon makes moving railcars around a rail siding or yard quick and easy. They are equipped with both road and rail wheels to move from track to track fast, and they have powerful traction forces from 27,000 lb to 60,000 lb to handle up to 40 loaded railcars. By moving between tracks without switching, Shuttlewagon greatly reduces the time required to complete routine railyard jobs in comparison to traditional switcher locomotives.
Shuttlewagon electric railcar movers
Shuttlewagon's full line of electric railcar movers don't create any direct emissions and reduce noise levels compared to diesel models. With 3,600 lb to 45,000 lb of traction force, these electric movers can handle multiple heavy, fully loaded railcars. Plus, they require less maintenance than diesel, because they have fewer moving components and no filters or oil are needed. Their electric models are also much less expensive to operate, and their motors deliver constant traction.
