Move Rail Cars Simply, Efficiently

The DJ Products Rail Car Caddy attaches to rail cars and makes them easy to transport, both inside a warehouse or outdoors in a yard.

"Making it safer and easier to move rail cars, DJ Products has released its Rail Car Caddy, a battery powered, compact mover that makes moving rail cars weighing up to 100,000 lbs. virtually effortless," said a company spokesperson.

When new rules were set by the U.S. Department of Transportation that required tank cars to be retrofitted with new safety equipment, DJ Products sought to help make the process easier. The Rail Car Caddy is designed to transport individual cars through the yard and warehouse in a simple and efficient way.

The Rail Car Caddy is fitted with a rail car coupler that attaches to a car. "With a turn of the Rail Car Caddy's variable-speed twist grip handle, workers are able to safely and effortlessly guide cars to their desired locations. The low-speed, high-torque design of the Rail Car Caddy, with adjustable acceleration and braking, allows workers to move rail cars safely and precisely," said the spokesperson.

The Rail Car Caddy fits between the tracks and has the torque needed to move heavy rail cars. At the same time, it is able to get the operator right next to the car to make small, precise movements.

"Many rail companies are finding that DJ Products' rail car mover is ideal for indoor use because it has no emissions. It is one of the few battery-powered rail car movers on the market and can be safely used in a warehouse all day long without any ventilation concerns," said the spokesperson.
