G & B Specialties Model R-460 is applicable to vehicles up to 19,500 lbs GVWR. This 100% duty cycle railgear was designed to meet the task at hand. Equip a light truck that has a maximum GVWR rating of 19,500 lbs with a Rafna R-460 Railgear and see for yourself. Proven “Cushion-Ride” suspension provides ride quality, reduced vibration through the vehicle frame, less component stress, and constant rail wheel to rail contact. No railgear adjustments are required for varying loads. With Rafna-Cushion-Ride Railgear, there are no limits imposed. If the vehicle can support the load, so can the railgear. Rafna R-460 Railgear has two hydraulic cylinders on both the front and rear units, providing power to spare under full vehicle capacity. On rail, the vehicle’s front wheels are raised a minimum of 2” above the rail head and the vehicle axle is hydraulically locked in place.
