CSX: Eye on better equipment

CSX Transportation is using different MOW equipment to boost productivity. For one, the Class I is building its own fleet of Rhino Regulators to meet its need for high-quality, reliable and standardized ballast regulators…

The Rhinos incorporate features from regulators CSX has used over the years and accommodate best practices. The machine’s power plant was tailored to deliver optimum power while conserving fuel and meeting the most stringent federal emission standards.

CSX also uses 16 tie handler magnets from Rail Construction Equipment Co. that are mounted on a rail-bound deck. The magnets grab tie plates as ties are pulled out, eliminating the need to employ two or three workers to perform the task.

 

The CSX Rhinos are proudly produced at Farmer Machine Company
