Hitch Puller-Chassis Picker Combo

Hitch Puller-Chassis Picker Combo

The Hitch Puller-Chassis Picker Combo combines all of the features of the rail car 5th wheel Hitch Puller with the chassis handling capabilities of the HCP-180C Chassis Picker.  The Hitch Puller function is designed for lifting the 5th wheel plates on rail flatcars.  The unit has hydraulically-driven telescopic extensions on both sides to reach the hitch easily.  The Chassis Picker function operates the same as our HCP-180C model by securely clamping onto the rails of a container chassis.  Indicator lights on the unit confirm a positive and secure clamp, allowing the operator to safely lift and transport the chassis.
