Anchor Remover

Versatile and Reliable. The only anchor remover machine capable of consistently removing all types of anchors and windrowing to the gauge side of the track without changes to the adjustment, once set for a particular size rail.


Clean Line Cab Design
Operator positioned within frame structure, in line with workhead, providing good visibility for tie to tie indexing alignment. Also excellent visibility for travel in either direction.

Increased Productivity
Workhead boxing feature uses stop blocks which position the workhead against each anchor, even those away from tie, for positive alignment of removal ram and anchor. Rail base reference means no need to adjust for worn rail.

Ram Depth Adjustment
Prevents damage caused by overdriving and allows for immediate anchor reinstallation without loss of holding power.

Independent Dual Function Control
Allows operator to either remove and windrow or just remove any type anchor.

Easy Turn Feature
Four point contact turntable base allows machine to easily be rotated for working on either high or low rails.
