The Nordstrong Railcar Progressioner makes the movement of railcars easier, more efficient and faster than it's ever been. This double drum traction-type unit allows a single operator to load, unload and move cars. A continuous cable run moves cars in both directions and it can be run from a remote location.
The components mount on a rigid steel frame, which bolts directly to the site's foundation.
The counterweight assembly automatically compensates for cable stretch. Tension sheaves are mounted on anti-friction bearings and housed in heavy-duty frames. The assembly includes a solid steel counterweight and a self-contained mast. The complete system mounts directly on top of the railcar progressioner frame.
A protective cage encloses the railcar progressioner while still allowing complete visual access for inspection and maintenance.
