The state-of-the-art 'workshop on wheels' is transforming the way Network Rail engineers work by improving safety, efficiency and, ultimately the cost of running the railway.
Harsco Rail requested 2 x KITO ER2 electric hoists per train to meet their requirements. Over the last 18 months, Red Rooster Lifting has supplied Harsco Rail with multiple electric hoists to fulfill the routine maintenance that's being carried out on the trains. The equipment featured a capacity of up to 2 tonnes, a height of lift of 3 metres and a push button pendant fitted with an emergency stop.
The lifting solutions have been installed on Mobile Maintenance Trains to aid in the repair and upgrade to 20,000 miles of tracks and signalling, helping 4 million people complete their journey every single day.
