Tie Handlers & Sleeper Handlers

The Strongest Grip

Features

The Strongest Grip - Change Out Rail Ties Fast!

In North America, they're called railroad ties. Elsewhere, they're called sleepers. It doesn't matter what you call them, the Dymax Rail Tie Handlers are up for the job. Dymax Rail Tie Handlers, or tie grapplers, are both tie inserters and tie extractors, and can change wood and concrete ties in minutes flat, and can be used with backhoe loaders and excavators. Quickly change 20 to 50 ties per hour, and in some cases more, depending on the machine and operator performance. Dymax Rail Tie Handlers are built for years of productive use and service, and improve efficiency in tie changeouts.

Integrated 360° Rotation, or Can Fit Tilt Rotator Coupler Systems

All Dymax Rail Tie Handlers for backhoe loaders and excavators feature integrated 360° rotation systems. They are also available for popular tilt rotator coupler systems. Call for details.

Replaceable Bolt-On Carbide Coated Pads

Dymax Rail Tie Handlers feature bolt-on, RokGäard™ carbide protected pads for handling both wood and concrete ties. Each model is provided with a stand assembly for storage.

Powerful Hydraulics Make it Easy!

All Dymax Rail Tie Handlers come with heavy duty hydraulic cylinders that provide superior gripping power. Models for fitting tilt rotator couplers only require a single bi-directional controlled circuit for operation. Models fitted with the integrated 360° systems require either a secondary circuit on the machine, or setup with a Dymax Rail electro-hydraulic diverter valve. All cylinders feature built-in lock valves mounted to the cylinder that secure the tie, even in case of machine pressure loss.
