Machine Description

Knox Kershaw’s KBC2100 Tie Handling Bridge Crane is capable of handling 1200 lbs. at a radius of 24 ft. from track centerline. The 4000 lb. capacity winch easily handles caps and stringers within a radius of 10 ft. from track centerline. Center locking rail dogs clamp the machine to the rails for working over the side. The upper deck and tie grapple are capable of 360° rotation. The boom can also swing 60° in either direction and the grapple can tilt. Boom and grapple design provides the ability to replace ties, caps, and stringers quickly, with minimal manpower.
