Hydrokit launches wagon pulling system at INTERMAT 2012
Hydrokit's wagon pulling system
New from Hydrokit is a wagon pulling system for use in applications such as quarries.
An air compressor is fitted onto a wide-track wheeled loader that is used to pull a series of wagons on rails. The kit, which is controlled from the wheeled loader’s cab, is used to release the wagons’ brakes and push or pull the wagons, using front and rear buffers.
Hydrokit said that the system is easy to handle and quick to move on site. There is no risk of derailing as the machine drives outside of the rails.
The equipment was developed in partnership with Bergerat Monnoyeur and Soerma tp.
