Strong features

  • Short construction height and 360º rotation

  • High closing force
    The two large-diameter cylinders and speed valve ensure exceptionally high closing force.

    The Pladdet railway cutter has a cycle time at least 30 percent faster compared to other similar models. Therefore, it is the best choice for track work.
Product description

Railway Cutter

The Pladdet rail cutter is designed for cutting train and tram rails. The two large, strong cylinders give this rail cutter a closing force of 310 tonnes (!). Thanks to its compact height of only 1580 mm (without the coupler plate), it is particularly suitable for working under overhead wires.

The shear is suitable for rails up to 900 N/mm² hardness. But also rail cutters for harder or larger rails are available from us. The cutter can rotate 360° hydraulically, which ensures a fast and accurate positioning of the jaws.
