The GO-A8-PW is one of the most widely recognized railcar gate openers in the industry. No longer will employees at hopper car unloading sites have to worry about difficulty with opening railcar gates, traveling gate mechanisms, uneven trackside terrain, varied railcar slide gate heights, or rapid unloading requirements.
This easy-to-use, air-powered railcar gate opener runs on a wheeled cart with pneumatically controlled pivot wheels. This allows it to follow traveling gates or moving trains easily. It also has manual height adjustment to accommodate the varied heights of gates.
Additionally, it generates a speed of 100- to 1,400-RPM, has no torque reaction, and has a self-adjusting power output of 1,000 to 13,000 ft/lbs to open jammed gates.
The GO-A8-PW’s other features include:
- Oil Caddy & Tool Storage Unit
- Capstan Drive Fitting
- Ergonomic Controls
- Air-Powered Pivot Wheels
- Epoxy Coating to Reduce Rust and Corrosion
- Precise Weight Distribution
- Engineered and Fabricated for Rugged Use
