Benefits of Using Reliable Trackmobiles
Trackmobile is rated as the global leader in railcar movers world-wide. A reliable Trackmobile is versatile equipment that saves time, money and effort in material handling.
The advantages of a railcar mover over locomotives
•Cost and time saving:
Moving railcars in a rail switching operation is a challenging job. Locomotives used to be the only way to move railcars before Trackmobile was introduced. Not only were locomotives expensive, but could only be used on the tracks. The good news with railcar movers is there is no need to depend on a rail service provider. Besides the waiting time involved, they can be expensive. Buying your own railcar mover based on your specific needs can result in cost savings.
•No demurrage charges:
By moving material for loading and unloading without waiting for a service provider, railroad demurrage charges can be saved. There is also a definite idea about when the material will move instead of relying on another service’s schedule.
•Safety and control:
It is safer to switch materials with a railcar mover as it provides more control over your operations.
The ability to be mobile both on land and rail tracks with technology that allows the vehicle to switch easily from one surface to the other.
•Ease of movement:
The material can be moved to different locations easily. Trackmobile railcars can be operated and maintained by a single person.
•State of the art equipment:
Known for their advanced technology, Trackmobile offers a range of highly tractive railcars suitable for different needs that can move several freight cars at once.
•Cost effective investment
The biggest benefit of using reliable Trackmobile is maximum up time, with easily availability of parts from the distributors. Not only are these versatile and flexible equipment cost-effective, but they are also available with a number of financing options and rental arrangements. Leading distributors like Briggs Rail offer Trackmobile equipment, new, used and refurbished through a variety of lease options and arrange financing. Equipment can be hired even for a day.
•Full service support
Trackmobile equipment is fully supported by repair and refurbish services where required at state of the art facilities and serviced by factory trained technicians. The equipment is thoroughly inspected and delivered as almost new machines that conform to environmental regulations. Parts availability is ensured with an advanced computer dispatching and tracking system so that parts can be quickly located and sent to client facilities for speedy service. Support is also offered in the form of maintenance plans starting from preventative programs to total maintenance arrangements.
As far as locomotives are concerned, while they may appear affordable, they are immobile and cannot be moved on and off the track. Also, they need a specially constructed rail yard so that they can move. If the equipment is aged, parts availability is an issue as this may need to be specially manufactured, all of which raises the costs significantly.
As pioneers of the mobile railcar mover, Trackmobile, besides being industry leaders, also offers the latest technology and features like radio remote control, “Auto Mag” “Max Tran” and “Max Trac” ensure maximum efficiency and output. Its three environmentally friendly models, the Titan, Hercules and Viking suit a range of needs.
