Used Railcar Movers

We are looking for good Used railcar movers, Rail King, Trackmobile or Shuttlewagon.  We will look at lease returns or trade-in units, in any condition.

Our website is not a broker style, we are the buyers and direct retailer for the equipment shown on our used equipment page.  Our expectation is to buy machines, repair as needed, rebuild or remanufacture as requested and offer good value for your budget.  If you are looking for a used machine, we have a few units in stock, some haven’t made it on the website, and if in demand, may not make it at all.

Proper Training is Important

We find that good training is an up front cost many managers would like to avoid. Not only does it involve a dollar cost, but also man hours while the personnel is in class. The long term cost savings is probably worth more than the lost man hours or the training day cost. With the rail car mover operators move heavy iron with a lighter railcar mover, it is important that they know what they are dealing with. Unnecessary brake wear, axle failures, tire wear, derailing are all signs that operator’s may need refresh training, for safety and reduce operation costs. Sometimes showing the operators new tricks or time saving tips, they would enjoy the job more, and that means productivity.

We have revamped the entire training program for the Rail King product line, and we suggest you check out our programs for operators, including remote controls. We focus on the railcar mover specifically as that is the unit your operation and maintenance dollars are affected by, and it is our specialty. Contact Catherine or Harry today!

OASIS Man-Down Safety Add-on for Mobile Rail Car Movers

H. Broer Equipment has an aftermarket man-down system or safety control device for mobile railcar movers called OASIS. It stands for Operator Attention Safety Interaction System, and it is designed to work on the Rail King, Trackmobile and Shuttlewagon mobile rail car movers.

OASIS Railcar Mover Man Down System

The system was originally designed to be installed into New or Used railcar movers like the Rail King, Trackmobile and Shuttlewagon, for the Alberta Rail Safety requirements. The system is engineered with FRA rules in mind and is integrated with the machine train air brakes, independent brakes, and parking brakes. It uses the operators manual brake controls and a push button to reset the timer on the alarms and subsequent activation of the safety shutdowns. The system also has a tie-in for the remote controls features to disable the system when remote controls are operational.

The system is field install ready, and comes with complete installation instructions.
