Kershaw® Scorpion RS70 DL Ramp

Progress Rail’s Maintenance-of-Way (MOW) division was born out of the movement toward mechanization in the railroad industry and introduced the first Kershaw® Ballast Regulator in 1945. Today, Progress Rail supplies Kershaw® MOW equipment, providing machines to all Class I railroads, transit and short lines and contractors around the world.

The Kershaw® RS70 Ramp is a “roll-up” loading ramp that can be used to load all work equipment that is normally transported on a flat car. It can load both rail-bound and rubber-tired machines. Rubber tired and most rail-bound machines can climb the 7% slope with ease. A winch is provided for disabled machines or machines that do not have sufficient traction to climb the ramp slope. One man can extend or retract the ramp in under 5 minutes using a remote pushbutton control.
