Designed for use with excavators and lorry-mounted cranes the RHB16 Rail Handling Beam is specifically intended for use in rail delivery operations.

The unique design of the jaws allows rails to be stacked foot-to-foot to maximize load capacity on trucks and rail equipment wagons.

A parachute valve prevents inadvertent dropping of the load but this can be overridden if used to railroad sleeper handling scrap rail into bins.

The heavy-duty construction includes a six-tonne capacity rotator and an all-steel heavy section frame.

Check valves on the cylinders to protect against leakage and burst hoses.

Adapter heads to suit all types of machines are available.
