Your Business + Our Dealers + Trackmobile Customer Service = A Winning Team

Trackmobile’s design philosophy is to build the best machines that efficiently and safely move our customer’s railcars.

Trackmobiles, like locomotives, use steel wheels for traction on the rail.

  • Steel wheels have flanges to keep them on the track.
  • Steel wheels can retain their rated traction on wet rails.
  • Rubber tires lose as much as 40% of their rated traction on wet rail.
  • A flat tire will not take a Trackmobile out of service.
  • Trackmobile’s weight transfer system adds 100% more weight ONTO the Trackmobile rail wheels to keep the machine on the track.
  • The steel guide wheels on a rubber tire driven railcar mover transfers 10% to 20% of the machine weight OFF of the rubber drive tires and onto the flanged steel guide wheels that keep them on the track.
  • Rubber tire railcar movers have 10% to 20% of machine weight keeping them on the track.
  • Trackmobiles have 200% of their weight keeping them on track.
  • The steel tread on steel rail wheels is designed to concentrate the weight of the vehicle on a 2-1/2″ rail head
  • The 10 to 12 inch tread on a rubber tire is not designed to concentrate the weight of a vehicle on a 2-1/2″ portion of its tread
