Hi-Rail Innovation for Excavators

Features

Rail Rider MP Hi-Rail Carts for Excavators!

At DYMAX, we wanted to create a solution for our customers that addresses the age-old problem of making costly alterations to your equipment. The Rail Rider MP is a cart specifically engineered to enable multiple excavator machine brands to operate on-track in hi-rail mode without requiring major machine modifications.

The Rail Rider MP product line allows excavators to reach remote locations that can only be accessed via rail. Rail Networks and contractors now have the ability to better handle jobs like disaster response, undercutting, tamping, tie extraction and insertion, culvert cleaning, yard maintenance, tunnel and bridge maintenance.

Available For Multiple Excavator Brands and Sizes

Available to fit excavators ranging from 8 to 20 tons, the Rail Rider MP only requires a few days to have your machine ready to ride the rails. Rail Rider MP delivers faster access to remote work sites and retains full machine value due to the special hydraulic kit design. You can setup one or multiple excavators to operate the same Rail Rider MP cart matched to it's class. The Rail Rider MP is available for all excavators configured with an open center valve arrangement, such as, Caterpillar 308, Caterpillar 312, Caterpillar 320 as well as Case CX85, CX130, CX160, CX210. Models are also available for John Deere or Hitachi 85, 120, 200, 210, 220 excavators and Takeuchi 285 and 1140. Contact the DYMAXRail sales team for more information at sales@DymaxRail.com.

Lift, Place, Connect and Go!

The DYMAX Rail Rider MP is your excavators skateboard on the rails! It does not require major machine modifications and is quick to adapt. You can lift the Rail Rider MP from the trailer, place to the rails and in minutes climb aboard, connect hoses and go to work! It's the ultimate hi-rail cart with extreme modularity and flexibility.

Brakes, Stabilizers and More

The DYMAX Rail Rider MP features a park brake and hydraulic service brakes. Each model features stabilization, giving operators more ability to perform tougher tasks on rail. Every Rail Rider MP features the DYMAXRail solar powered, bi-directional, auto sensing lighting package-providing red tail lights and white head lights when traveling on rail. The lights automatically switch direction depending on which direction you're moving. Each model is provided with an 8ft (1.8m) tow bar with pintle eyes and storage hooks.

Speed and Power

DYMAX Rail Rider MP Carts are matched to meet the hydraulic design of the specific excavator. With integrated flow controls you can quickly travel up to 12mph with an MP8 or 15mph with an MP12 or MP20. The powerful drive motors provide the ability for towing trailers and tool carts where needed.

Available for Multiple Track Gauges & Capacities

Our standard product is suited for 1435mm track guage (aka standard rail gauge). The Rail Rider MP design makes it ideal for varying track gauges such as narrow gauge and broad gauge networks found around the world. If you need a larger capacity for say a 30t to 36t excavator don't hesitate to call as we can quickly determine if we can provide a solution.
