40,000 lbs. push carts are built to withstand the most demanding conditions found on the railroad. The frames are coped and fully welded using ASTM structural shapes with 1/4" diamond plate decks. The axles are 3-7/16" solid CR1045 round stock with pillow block bearings, and spacers between the bearings and wheel to prevent the axles form shifting. The wheels are drop forged 1045 domestic steel which is then machined to a 16" AAR profile and sent to have the tread and flange flame hardened.
Most push carts are built to order with customer specified dimensions and are available with a variety of options including:
Lifting points / center lifting point
Custom fixtures or tool boxes
Custom decals including machine numbers and company name or logo
