Current rerailersare heavier than OSHA's & NIOSH's 2 person lifting limit, making them difficult to carry and maneuver.
Rerailers need to be carried to derail locations. Current rerailers weigh 124 to 180lbs, while OSHA & NIOSH have set the safe lifting limit at 50lbs per person. This means they require 3 to 4 people to lift safely.
Pennsy's - less than 100lbs Rerailers
Pennsy designed a light weight Inside & Outside rerailer set. Weighing less than 100lbs each, these rerailers safely fall under OSHA’s & NIOSH’s 2 person lift criteria.
Their classic ramp design lifts the wheels and guides them back onto the track. Held in place by a clamp and saw tooth locking mechanism, the rerailers will not kick out during a rerail.
Being an all cast metal design, the rerailers are durable and will survive multiple rerails.
