The Hi-Rail Material Handler transports ties, timbers, rail, signal bungalows and other track material and places them exactly where needed—quickly and safely.

Key features:

“Danella realizes that drivers frequently operate in locations that are difficult to access. The Hi-Rail Material Handler is designed specifically to help get to these locations and place material right where it’s needed safely and efficiently on and off the rails. Danella backs its product with superior maintenance and service for outstanding performance and safety,” says Steve Bolte, Danella’s Vice-President of Business Development for North America.

Equipped with a tandem axle and a gross vehicle weight (GVW) rating between 56,000 and 66,000, the truck is capable of withstanding sizable loads resulting in fewer delivery trips.

Danella services and maintains its vehicles according to specific guidelines for reliable performance and safe operation in tough railroad environments.
