In addition to Mitchell's Backhoe Loader Rail Gear, we proudly offer the Backhoe Boom Hoist attachment, designed to provide precision lifting capabilities akin to a crane's hoist. Many projects that require exacting lifts may not necessitate a full-fledged RT Crane or Carry Deck Crane; instead, they can be efficiently executed with a hi-rail backhoe equipped with our hydraulic hoist attachment.
A backhoe stands as an incredibly versatile piece of equipment widely used in railroads. Typically, when lifting is required, operators attach a chain to the bucket and rely on the boom's up-and-down motion for lifting purposes. However, this approach lacks the precise control that a hydraulic hoist can deliver.
