RT-201 Triangle Rail Threader
The RT-201 Triangle Rail Threader is used by rail gangs to lay or remove continuous welded rail. This universal rail threader is used on all sizes of welded rail. There is ample clearance within the opening of the Threader to accommodate some bolted rail. The RT-201 Threader side opens in two ways for easy rail loading. The heavy-duty construction allows the Threader to roll the rail upright and thread the rail into the tie plates. The replaceable tapered roller bearings equipped with grease seals are inside of the rollers for protection and extended life.

RT-103 Rail Threader
The RT-103 Rail Threader is used by rail gangs to lay or remove continuous welded rail. The heavy-duty construction allows the Threader to grab the rail in any position, roll the rail upright and thread the rail directly into the tie plates. The RT-103 keeps the rail low to the ground, which significantly helps to control the rail laying or rail removing process. The RT-103 is supplied with a fail safe lock that prevents the Rail Threader from opening once the Rail Threader is locked on the rail. Four rollers are attached to a pair of self-aligning pivot bars that always maintain contact with the underside of the ball of the rail when handling rail.
The rollers are replaceable and the pivot bars with rollers are replaceable. The replaceable tapered roller bearings equipped with grease seals are inside of the rollers for protection and extended life.

Rail Tugger
The Rail Tugger has a convenient locking wedge, which is securely fastened to the tugger, holds rails securely for removal from rail trains and for accurate positioning for welding.
