Rail Rider SC

Self-Contained Low Bed Equipment Transporter


Rail Rider SC - Hi-Rail Equipment and Machinery Transport for Railway Applications

The Dymax Rail Rider SC (Self-Contained), formerly called the T-Railer, is the world's most versatile low bed equipment transporter for use in railway applications. It features high rail gear built into the work platform, allowing the machine to move on rail at speeds up to 18 miles per hour. Dymax Rail Rider SC machines have been used for maintenance jobs and disaster recovery jobs throughout North America. You can move the Rail Rider SC like a conventional trailer, or low-boy from the job site and then quickly load to the rail tracks in less than 15 minutes. Haul machinery and equipment to and from remote locations. Excavators can also work from the platform with the unique stabilizer system built into the Rail Rider SC. These self-contained machines can be custom built to suit your specific railway application requirements.

Perform Multiple Jobs!

Spread ballast, haul drainage pipe, set transmission poles, haul excavators and loaders, cement trucks, rail, panel sections, scrap ties, cement trucks and cranes, and more with the Dymax Rail Rider SC.

Improved Technology and Performance with Remote Control System

All Dymax Rail Rider SC machines are powered by an independent hydrostatic drive, operated with remote control technology. Operators can work outside of the machine cab or from within the cab. Each Rail Rider SC features air brakes, safety lights, tie down locations, lighting packages, camera systems, and a toolbox. The Rail Rider SC is the workhorse of the rails. All Rail Rider SC machines include road gear for pulling on highway and are registered with vehicle identification numbers (VIN). Some models require special permits for pulling on highway.

Go From Road to Rail in Minutes

The Dymax Rail Rider SC can be equipped with an integrated turntable system that allows customers to load the machine on rail in 10-15 minutes. The turntable is not always required, but helps when crane lifting is not available.

Multiple Line Type Applications and Customization

The innovative Dymax Rail Rider SC has proven operation experience in light rail networks and heavy haul freight rail networks. If you need a special requirement such as larger hauling capacity, let us know. We can build a Rail Rider SC to meet your requirements!
