Hy-Rail® or Ryd-A-Rail® or Hi-Rail® has become a very popular method of traversing rail today. It allows many types of vehicles to get to areas that were only accessible by trains themselves. By providing a means of of getting specific vehicles or machinery down the track for maintenance, railways have provided safer and more accessible rail routes for trains to pass along. We service many of these manufacturers of Hy-Rail® such as Harsco (formerly Fairmont Tamper), Diversified Metal Fabricators, Aries, Mitchell, and Rafna systems.

Fairmont Tamper™ 0307 Hy-Rail® rail gear attachments adapt to many light-duty pickup trucks and utility vehicles for railway travel. These attachments incorporate many versatile design ideas which enable these units to outperform other similar guide wheel attachments.

The 0307 wheel units combine steel wheel arms, two-piece, rubber-tread guide wheels mounted on smooth running Fairmont Tamper torsion suspension, and many versatile truck mounting applications. Each wheel unit has a wheel load capacity of 700-lbs utilizing the Fairmont manual actuation method that requires little effort to actuate or we can even automate your units, therefore lifting & lowering the guide wheels into the rail position is a snap.

Let us be your one stop for your Fairmont Tamper™ Rail Gear Equipment. We have refurbished wheels, complete replacement units, and our own Alignment System for precise calibration of your rail gear with our Certified Fairmont Hy-Rail® Technicians.
