The Tie Remover and Inserter (TRIPP) includes two 86-inch-stroke-length workheads that allow the operator to perform removal/insertions from either side of the track, allowing greater control in obstructed or constricted areas. The TRIPP is designed to handle all wood, as well as wood composite, ties. In addition, optional concrete grippers are available to convert the TRIPP to handle concrete ties.
The Tie Shear is ideal for use when obstructions or close adjacent tracks make horizontal removal of a full tie difficult or impossible. The Tie Shear uses two scissor-style workheads to cut the ties into pieces, allowing for easier removal of the shorter tie sections.
