Precise control of a machine’s rail lift system is the key to fast, efficient old tie removal and proper insertion of new ties with minimum distrubance of the track structure. Harsco Track Technologies’ TKO Tie Remover/Inserter can provide you with this precise control. It removes or inserts ties in one piece with minimum disturbance to the track structure by precisely controlling rail-to-tie clearance with its distinctive rail lift system.
