LaGrange, GA - Trackmobile announces its new Atlas model that is designed to better accommodate rail application locations requiring greater tractive effort due to unfavorable conditions or applications requiring longer strings of railcars to be moved in onsite rail spotting and switching activity.
Delivering 43,900 pounds of single coupled tractive effort, and 60,200 pounds when double coupled, the Atlas not only offers more capacity but also offers state of the art operator comfort, ease-of-use, and includes many options as standard equipment.
“Trackmobiles have always offered high quality and value in railcar spotting and switching” stated Ralph Przybyszewski, President of Trackmobile, “…and now the Atlas takes us to the next level in locomotive replacements for in-plant usage.”
He continued by stating, “Development of the Atlas is yet another example of Trackmobile’s dedication to meet specific customer needs.”
On-site testing of the Atlas at several different customer locations with challenging environments has proven that the new design delivers as promised and more.
“The Trackmobile Atlas is not only the highest capacity model we have produced to date, but as with all Trackmobile models, it provides the most consistent tractive effort in applications with adverse track conditions and in inclement weather in the industry,” stated Michael Young, Trackmobile North American Sale & Marketing Manager.
“The shorter wheel base and machine length are a real asset when it comes to the equipment being agile and easy to maneuver”, he added.
