RW-1016 Railgear features an independent suspension system at each railwheel, utilizing rubber springs for a smooth and quiet ride over uneven rail. The load on each railwheel can be independently adjusted. The 10” machined steel guidewheels ride on unitized hub bearings that maximize service life and minimize maintenance. Select components are hot dip galvanized or zinc plated for additional corrosion resistance. In the rail position, the Railgear is “over-center”, which prevents a hydraulic failure from allowing the gear to collapse. An emergency hand pump allows the gear to be lifted into the highway position in the event of hydraulic system failure while on rail.
