Railroad tie grapples are essential tools used in railway construction and maintenance. These units are typically mounted on specialized railroad track loaders or truck cranes, which are further installed on rail trucks dedicated to servicing and building tracks. The primary function of these grapples is to facilitate the movement of loose pieces of railway tracks, streamlining the process and improving overall efficiency.

Customers can enjoy peace of mind with Moley’s comprehensive 24-Month Warranty, assuring the top-notch quality and performance of their products.
One of the key features of these grapples is the inclusion of a hardened shaft. This crucial component significantly enhances the grapple’s durability, allowing it to withstand the wear and tear that comes with frequent use in rugged rail environments. With the hardened shaft, these grapples can deliver consistent and reliable performance, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity.
Another essential aspect of Moley’s Railroad Tie Grapples is the wear-resistant blade. This specially designed blade ensures prolonged use without compromising on efficiency, even when dealing with abrasive materials or challenging track conditions. The blade’s wear resistance ensures that it retains its edge and cutting efficiency, making it a highly reliable tool for various railway tasks.
Safety is of paramount importance in any rail operation, and Moley’s grapples take this seriously. The incorporation of a safety holding valve is a testament to their commitment to ensuring secure operations. The safety holding valve prevents accidental drops of loose track pieces during handling, mitigating potential hazards and providing a safer working environment for operators and personnel.
