Kershaw Skytrim 75 G3


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.

As a global supplier of Kershaw MOW, utility and vegetation management equipment, we provide a comprehensive line of machines to help maintain rail infrastructure and right-of-ways around the world.

Our Kershaw SkyTrim 75 G3 is a rough terrain, rubber-tired vehicle equiped with telescoping boom and saw-type cutter head designed to effectively slice through trees..
