Engcon’s railway grab stronger still

In 2012, Engcon launched its powerful GR20RR railway grab, an integrated grab specially modified for handling railway sleepers and rails. And now, four years later, it's time for a thorough update. The new model – the GR20R2 – together with Engcon's tiltrotator, makes excavators even more efficient.

The grab arms on the new GR20R2 are sturdier and made from high-strength steel with a hardness of 400 Brinell for maximum service life. We’ve fitted the grab arms with supporting bosses for more stable control of the load and the grab cylinders now have thicker walls to handle higher hydraulic pressures.

"The upgrades are in response to our customers' views and requests," says Fredrik Jonsson, Head of R&D in Engcon Group.

To make grabbing and handling objects easier, grabs will now be angled downwards up to 42 degrees.

The GR20R2 is suitable for use with Engcon's Q-Safe quick hitch and can therefore also be fitted with EC-Oil for automatic connection of hydraulic tools such as ballast tampers, sleeper layers, timber grabs and compactors etc.

The GR20R2 will replace the earlier model with immediate effect.
