Less Trackage - Fewer Switches
More Equipment for Sale or Rent

The Trackmobile® Advantage

The 5TM utilizes a dual wheel system, rubber tires for road and rail wheel for rail travel. The 5TM can reach railcars anywhere on the track, which means less trackage and fewer switches. The conversion from road wheels to railwheels and all other movements of the Trackmobile®, including coupling to the railcar, are controlled from inside a weatherproof cab by the operator. The 5TM’s versatility, serviceability, and low operating cost make it the efficient way to move railcars.

The Trackmobile® Pulling Power

The 5TM utilizes the weight transfer system developed by TRACKMOBILE®. The 5TM’s hydraulic jacking coupler transfers 1000’s lbs. of weight from the railcar to the 5TM giving it an impressive tractive effort on rail. The 5TM can easily pull multiple cars under most conditions. The 5TM is equipped with a six cylinder gas engine and a torque converter transmission. To maintain traction during wet conditions sand can be applied to the track in front or back of the railwheels.
