Workhorse X1 offers a robust Front / Rear Hitch system, using pneumatics to raise the coupler pin in preparation for coupling or decoupling. When coupled to a railcar, the rear rail hitch system uses two hydraulic cylinders to raise the attached rail car to maximize tractive effort on the rear bogie. The front hitch is also pneumatically actuated and controlled by the driver from inside the cab, using the control console.
Workhorse X1 boasts a bogie system that is optimized to provide a high level of reliable tractive effort while on rail and moving rail cars. The tractive force, created by hydrostatically driven rail gear bogeys provides hydrostatic braking when the unit needs to be stopped while on rail.
Additional features include a sled system that aids in optimizing weight distribution of the rail car mover based on operation conditions, a hydraulic pump drive, air brake system, sanding system, video feedback system, extendable mirrors, auxiliary fuel tank, 100-gallon hydraulic reservoir, programmable controller, event recorder, air knives and axle hooks.
