DMF RAILGEAR RW-1420

DMF’s RW-1420 railgear is a scaled-down version of our patented and very successful RW-1630 gear for large trucks. The front guide wheel assembly attaches to the frame and front axle and lifts the front wheels off the track, thus, utilizing the vehicle’s front suspension. This design supports the vehicle as it was intended and helps the truck navigate curves smoothly and dampen out the effects of track irregularities. The rear assembly attaches directly to the truck frame behind the rear axle spring hanger. It deploys with an articulated dual-scissor action that allows the rear railgear to be moved both vertically and horizontally. This mechanism provides the “side-shift” action which has made DMF gear so well-known in the industry. It gives operators a greater margin for aligning the vehicle to the track which speeds and simplifies the process of getting the vehicle on rail.
