This easy-to-use, extremely versatile loader is designed for long-range use. Flexibility in making tight connections during the loading and unloading process comes from its minimum of five swivel planes of rotation. The outboard swivel and arm adjusts for any tilting or changes in elevation that may occur during the loading or unloading process.
Variations to this loader are possible. It can be equipped with a dry disconnect coupler, union, quick coupling or other customer-specified end fitting to make connections on the side, at the rear or underneath the vehicle. The low profile and clearances needed to connect to the underside of a railcar are achieved by inverting the intermediate swivel.
Arms of varying length can be mounted on staggered risers to achieve crossover and neat, compact storage of multiple arms in a confined space. These installations are usually done at or near ground level.
