Hand Rail Cart 500 kg

Rail Carts

It is a lightweight means of transport operated by manpower, designed for movement on railway tracks with 1435mm gauge. It is used by fire and rescue brigades for interventions on railways in places difficult to approach (tunnels, bridges, etc.), to transport fire accessories, tools and necessary material to the point of intervention.


It consists of the loading bed with wheels fitted on its underside. The cart has folding handrails on two sides (in direction of travel) used to push and/or pull the cart. The cart sides are fitted with removable railing to facilitate the material loading and unloading. There are lugs along the perimeter of the loading area to fasten the transported material. Oval-shaped openings on the floor are used to handle the cart when it is folded. One pair of wheels is fitted with disc brakes allowing to secure the cart against self-motion. The cart is two-piece, folding for an easy transport out of the railway track.
