Dual Anchor Adjuster

The multiple use Racine Dual Anchor Adjuster will squeeze all types of rail anchors when used in a wood tie replacement gang; or to re-tighten rail anchors in a surfacing gang operation; or during rail replacement in a quality control application. Rail anchors do not have to be removed and reapplied during wood tie replacement operations allowing for increased productivity and longer rail anchor life.


Efficient Workhead Configuration for Wood Tie Replacement
The horizontal mounted cylinder controls four operating arms, providing highly leveraged, positive, consistent, squeeze force.

Quality Parts For Greater Overall Economy 
Fewer wear surfaces, plus heat treated push tools lead to lower maintenance costs. Many components are interchangeable with the Dual Anchor Spreader.

Flexible Operation
Squeeze two anchors on one rail, or four anchors on two rails; uniformly positioning anchors against ties or tie plates without twisting.

Multi-Purpose Design
Easy access to both spacer plates and spacer blocks insures quick changeout for either 5 1/2" or 6" rails on all anchor types throughout the head's 15" range.

Increased Operator Safety and Productivity
Excellent visibility for alignment and repositioning anchors allows a single operator to adjust all anchors under all field conditions. Side egress for safe operator exit in congested areas. Workhead barriers cover exposed areas.

Comfortable Climate Controlled Cab
Helps keep operator safe, alert and more productive.

Technology
Touch screen and electronic displays replace analog gauges and switches for more reliability. Machine utilizes CMA valves and smart cylinders for programmable controls. Computer uses hydraulic smart power distribution to efficiently divert power where needed. Computer accesses system sensors to help diagnose any maintenance issues.
