Quickly adjust for height and pattern differences

Make a simple adjustment shaft change to adapt the workhead for different hole patterns. Or quickly set the workhead to handle different rail heights. In addition, the adjustable latch height allows you to precisely account for the size of the head flange and any included washers.

High production levels

Use the dual-workhead mode to efficiently operate both the inside and outside workheads simultaneously. In addition, four workheads allow you to rapidly remove all four lag screws (two per rail) at the same time.

Heavy-duty removal torque

Remove even the most embedded lag screws with 700 foot-pounds of torque.

Use fewer personnel carriers

The optional extended cab allows up to five extra crew members (total capacity = 7) to ride in the cab. Fewer personnel carriers mean less equipment to maintain and less space needed on sidings for overnight storage.

Handle high screw situations

No need to re-adjust the workhead or latch levels for occasional high screws; simply use manual controls to make on-the-spot adjustments.
