Portable rail lifts, also known as rail jacks, are ideal for maintaining and repairing passenger or freight rail cars. As it is a mobile lift, there’s no need for expensive civil engineering work. Lift portability provides maximum flexibility and utilization anywhere inside the shop. Additionally, SLEC rail lifts are available in capacities up to 50,000 lbs. per column, with groups of 36 columns available. When individually positioned, these rail jacks line up with the jack points on the rail car. And to make life even simpler, we provide customized rail jacks for all applications. All columns in the connected set fully synchronize, so they don’t vary more than a quarter of an inch in height for your safety. Like our vehicle lifts, our rail jacks come electrically powered, include a self-locking ACME threaded screw, and won’t drift from their position. This product is manufactured in the USA and is Buy America compliant.
Available in capacities from 10,000 lbs. to 50,000 lbs. per column.
Can be connected as a set of four jacks (for an individual railcar) or up to 36 columns (9 coupled railcars).
The lifts can be operated from a control panel fitted on the lift or from a separate console which is mounted at some distance from the jacks.
The lift can be fitted with either a fixed lifting claw, which requires precise positioning in relation to the lifting pad or an adjustable claw.
An interactive touch screen on the primary column communicates the operational status of the lifts to the operator.
Lifts can be operated as all columns, any pair across an axle or any individual lift.
