Torsion Ride 3535 for Dodge 5500
Model 3535 Rail Gear
Model 3535 Rail Gear for Dodge 5500. The Rail Gear adapts to trucks for the purpose of traveling on the highway or railway.
The Rail Gear is hydraulically raised and lowered either by a trucks PTO hydraulic source or by the optional single high flow self contained hydraulic pump with emergency hand pump that is activated by either cab controlled electric switch, push a push button control located on each end of the vehicle or both.
This Rail Gear is very unique for this class truck because both the front and rear gear units are modular identical units that can be applied to a large variety of trucks. When the Rail Gear is installed on the rear of trucks with short frames and rear fuel tanks the Rail Gear is positioned so the Rail Gear retracts away from the rear tires. For trucks with mid ship fuels tanks the Rail Gear can be positioned so the Rail Gear pivots toward the rear tires.
The Rail Gear is designed to minimize the rail gear from extending very far beyond the standard front bumper on most trucks. The Front Rail Gear comes standard with a front bumper that has cutouts for work lights and sight rods. The Rail Gear utilizes Mitchell’s 4-Wheel Independent Torsion Rail Suspension Technology that allows the Rail Gear to fit in a compact envelope not possible with other Rail Gear suspension systems. The suspension does not require adjustment for varying payloads up to the maximum gross vehicle weight of the truck.
The Rail Gear has optional standard safety features not found on most rail gear such as the optional automatic locking mechanism that securely locks the rail gear in the raised and lower position, optional automatic retractable rail sweeps that are spring loaded in the on track position.
The Rail Gear comes standard with precision-machined forged rail wheels.
The front and rear Rail Gear units are identical modular units. The Rail Gear kits comes complete with mounting brackets, built-in de-rail skids and steering wheel lock.
