Prior to Pennsy, rerailers weighed from 124 to 180lbs each. OSHA & NIOSH’s safe lifting limit is 50lbs per person which means last generation rerailers require 3 to 4 people to lift safely.
Even without the established safety lifting limits, rerailers need to be carried to derail locations, for 2 men they are difficult to carry and maneuver.
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.
